I'm so consumed with "Wild Blood". I'm pretty critical about bands' new albums. Especially after a long delay. "Wild Blood" was worth every minute of the wait. It might be their best album already. "Everything Starts Where It Ends" might still hold that title, but not for long. Both are sooo good!
It's funny how I can pick out other band influences specifically for each album: 1) Sunny Day Real Estate, 2) Muse (and a lot of other bombastic bands, I guess), 3) Queens of the Stone Age, 4) U2. Does anyone else get the U2 vibe from this new one?
The new songs from the new album are great, although I like the EP versions of past songs more than the album versions (Ladders, Pink Champagne, etc). Favorites off the new album are easily Dinosaur, Wild Blood, and Revival. Only song I'm not really a fan of is Girl. Also, am I the only one that really kind of detests the guitar solo in Dinosaur?
