Most new albums can come in between $5.99 and $7.99 and the superstars can have their prices.
I bet Twenty-One Pilots are opening up the bottles oc champers, whatever the downsize of the music biz in 2015 might be, the upside is everybody gets to have a # 1 album. This is the seventh by a new act, this year. Meanwhile, in the smaller share US, the Billboards award catapulted Taylor, Meghan and Ed. Finally, Bradley Gilbert has a song with featured singers Justin Moore and Thomas Rhett. Or as we like it to call it, a breesome.
Blurryface – Twenty One Pilots – Fueled By Ramen pop band rap and sing their way through an album with a shifting center of gravity. It is hugely ambitious, it feels like an old fashioned big album, and if an album with songs as strong as “Ride” and “Going Local” can be considered a failure, it fails. But it fails only on its own ambitious terms – ALBUM OF THE WEEK – B+
But the truth is peppered in with same old same olds like Keith Urban we have a band that just a short while ago was playing a 200 person venue in Hartford Connecticut (psst we were there). Fabulous news and faith in humanity semi restored (not really). Happy new week!
“We are coming for everyone. I promise. The only breaks we take are to finish writing this new album. Please hang with us.” I can’t wait to see these guys live again. And if they’re not coming to your area, they promise they’ll be around. Just be thankful they’re touring at all.
“but this man is truly, in more than one way, a hero. He’s an individual who is not exploiting mental illness, but empowering and helping those who deal with it. It’s beautiful and he does it simply through music in a way that so few can really accomplish.”
“This album is reminiscent of their first, and that’s a great thing. They were losing momentum with Ryan Ross and Jon Walker in the band, and by them splitting, it allowed P!ATD to grow into a superband that’s gonna continue releasing fantastic music and making teen girls melt.”
