The new MUSE track is receiving mixed reactions from fans, what do you think? Take the survey below. For me personally (James Fratzke) I think it is okay at best. I really enjoyed the synth sound of The 2nd Law, which you don't get with Psycho. I think it is important to note that this track was released with the album pre-order, in other words it is not the official 1st single. I reserve all judgment until March 25th when the first single is released.
Imagine Dragons: Smoke + Mirrors Review
Imagine Dragons new record Smoke + Mirrors was released a few weeks ago. In an attempt to kick off this post by sounding smart I want to note that the new albums title is a clear nod to the bands home town of Las Vegas (like magicians in Vegas use smoke and mirrors.. get it?). I’m sure this observation has already been made, but it is the first time I am saying it and I’m sure that counts for something… right?
What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World
The Decemberists is back and in championship form. What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World is fun, serious, and an all around solid listen. I will let the cat out of the bag early and tell you we gave this record a 4 out of 5. As a disclaimer before you read the rest of this review, we here at F&F are not musicians, but we do know how a record makes us feel. If you are looking for an in depth review of the musicality behind What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World you might want to look somewhere else. With that being said keep reading to see what we liked about this album.
