The landscape of rock, and music in general, is pretty flooded with bands, but sometimes, a band will come out of nowhere and blow you away. 30 Seconds to Mars fits that exactly.
30STM is the brainchild of actor/musician Jared Leto, the band takes a very unique approach to the scene, lyrically they have alot in common with bands like Pink Floyd. That’s a pretty lofty comparison, but they do it pretty effectively.
There are really no rough spots on the album, it is a masterpiece of prog, new-wave, metal, and industrial mixed into one. Leto’s vocals are excellent and really hit high points all over the album. If you like bands with a standout frontman, check it out, Leto is amazing.
The album hits from many directions and keeps you entertained throughout.If you are into synth at all, check them out. The synth man from the band Deadsy provided keys for the opening track.
It’s a great release from most popular music. It is a great band with a great debut album…if you are a fan of experimental rock, or rock in general, then you owe it to yourself to check this one out.
