This song builds up the album really well, and the guitars are great. I love the strings! All the instruments are arranged and mixed very well. I think a lot of people can feel with this song. We always want more, the opposite of what we have or things we can't have. Most of us aren't satisfied with our lives!
I feel the instruments are a little more chaotic in this one. But omg, Robert's voice! He sounds a lot sexier when he sings deep like that. Not really a fan of the backing vocals in the chorus though. The lyrics describe what could be a typical night out - not just in America!
This Is A Lie
A very interesting slow song! Beautiful strings. So emotional.
This is so different it makes me laugh! Very latino. I only enjoy the chorus, honestly. It's too weird for me! The lyrics describe him seeing a woman sing on stage, they start talking and are going to have sex. He doesn't REALLY want to, this isn't like him, and knows he will regret it, but doesn't care.
And now for something completely different! The intro sounds like something from a horror movie, and then it gets super cheerful. It's really fun and cute! Ends a little sad though. I guess I can relate to this in how I've made friends online, and after I've met them, they aren't who I thought they were.
I have the single of this, and the first time I heard it I was surprised. I wasn't very familiar with them at the time, mainly just the gloomy stuff, and a couple of the poppy hits, I guess. At the time I was probably more against cheerful and poppy stuff. But now I like it! It's a good song. I'm singing along now!
This blends perfectly with the last track, but this one is slower and gloomier, and takes us back to their earlier stuff. I feel it could be about a girl losing her virginity? Seems like it to me, at least.
Round & Round & Round
This song is a good blend of rock and pop - and even some classical! The lyrics remind me of Open on the last album, about introverts or other people playing along with the social norms at a party.
This one is more jazzy! Not really my thing. But the lyrics are very motivational!
A nice, slow and emotional song - with a touch of oriental and strings. The lyrics are really sad; about depression and drug addiction.
This one picks up things again! But I feel there's just too much going on with the instruments in this one.
Love the guitar here! I like the aggressiveness, it's not too much. I wonder if the lyrics are about a certain person - they seem like a bitch!
Wonderful atmosphere created by the instruments, especially the strings. The lyrics are very simple, but emotional and sad.
The atmosphere in the last song carries over into this. It's an incredibly sad breakup song. It's the longest song by far on the album, at almost 8 minutes, but it doesn't feel too long. I think it ends the album well, leaving you still wanting more. But it would be 4 more years until the next album.
