Birds Of Tokyo - Birds Of Tokyo
It's... interesting. I mean, the tunes are good, and I have no complaints about the singing or the production or any of the other myriad things that can go wrong in putting an album together. But it just doesn't appeal to me.
Much like you can put on an article of clothing when the cut, colour and fabric all look right, but you look in the mirror and you just don't... pop. I like my music to make me pop, and this stuff, while I almost guarantee it'll go on to please audiences worldwide and sounds ideal for stadium shows, leaves me unmoved.
Frankly it's a bit MOR for my taste, although YourZ hotly debated this with me.
VERDICT: TURN IT DOWN
