Amazon.co.uk

A Beautiful Lie, the second studio album from 30 Seconds To Mars, was recorded in five different countries over a period of three years, in order to accommodate vocalist/guitarist Jared Leto's acting career. Yet the album is anything but disjointed. On the contrary, it's more consistent than its predecessor, 30 Seconds To Mars, as well as more confident, more personal (lyrically), and generally more mature. True, A Beautiful Lie relies heavily on Leto's dynamic vocals to lead the way. But lead single, "Attack," illustrates the more stripped down, radio-friendly sound of the band perfectly - as do tracks "The Kill," "Was it a Dream" and "From Yesterday". The band conjure up some slower, more kaleidoscopic moments ("A Modern Myth," for example), but A Beautiful Lie is largely a punchy project with a frisky mid-tempo pace and an engagingly sonorous aura. The only criticism would be the choice of Bjork’s "Hunter" as a song to cover: 30 Seconds To Mars are very far from doing the song - or themselves - justice here. However, the newly enhanced version of the album, with its re-recording of the "The Kill" and DVD featuring live performances and MTV2 moments, help make up for any occasional blips. --Danny McKenna

So much has been written about the 'Hollywood star' connection so lets dispence with all that crap and focus on the band and music. I've been lucky enough to have been listening to this album for over a year having bought it in America the day it came out, and what a cracker it is. Kicking off with Attack this draws you in with some amazing vocals and a fantastic driving song(just watch your speed). Not wanting to really use the Emo tag this album cannot get more emotional if it tried on tracks The kill and From yesterday with Jared screaming his lungs dry. I found the best way to describe them was if you were to put U2, Depeche Mode, and Motorhead in a room to duke it out the surviving members would form 30 Seconds to mars. Great album hope the hype does not break them up, an album that will certainly help you work,rest and play.

I bought this after a few friends recomended it. Being into all forms of guitar music from emo-pop through to Death Metal I listened to it with an open mind and without even knowing who the lead singer was.

Quite simply first listen I was amazed at the quality and talent shown here. Jareds voice is simply awesome and the songs are excellently written and polished right the way through.

Starting with "Attack" a song that just reeks power and get's you really excited straight away. Then the album does soften up a bit throughout the next couple of tracks with "The Kill" being a really (I hate this tag.) EMO song but you realise then just how awesome this guys voice is and that's not going onto the tunes themselves which are awesome. Then after a couple of great 'filler' tracks you get "From Yesterday" Quite possibly already one of my favourite songs of all time. His voice throughout the song is amazing, from the soft melodic verses to the screaming choruses where he really does seem to sing his heart out and after a few listens you will probably do so to. A song that really lifts your spirits and get's your heart and soul going.

The album ends on a softer note and as soon as the last note is rung you want to hit the repeat button to go through it all again.

So I would recommend anyone who likes rock music buys this album, yes in parts it's EMO but don't let that hinder you. I promise, if you like soaring vocals, well written songs and music that really makes you feel what the singer seems to be, you won't go wrong with this album.

Having put up with Radio 1 and listening to 'The Kill' overplayed, trying to get used to it after the very fantastic 'Biffy Clyro-Puzzle'(album of the year, in my opinion) the album would appear to be impossible to match. 'A Beautiful Lie' became an absolute joy and grows on me each time on playing(listen to the reviews so far), it is a real grower after a couple of listens. Please, please buy and listen more than once (it will be your favourite album at one stage in your life)!

I don't really have anything new to add to what has been written below about the songs themselves, but feel I should post a warning to Mac users about this CD (and indeed about any others that use the OpenDisc 'interactive' element). You will NOT be able to eject this disc from your Mac without re-booting as the disc is effectively opened twice (once for the audio tracks and once for the interactive element, which I didn't even want in the first place). Even after quitting every application I had open the disc still would not eject and re-booting was the only option. Hope this is helpful!

I don't usually say this about a band. But this album is PERFECT. Ranging from subdued and intimate to arena-filling rock anthems.

Jared's voice is on TOP form, and I mean that, just listen to "From Yesterday" if you don't believe me. He may be on a complete ego-trip with this album, but hell, he's earnt it.

It is massive, extravagant, daring, tight and simply amazing. Utilising different time signatures (such as the 3:4 time signature in "The Kill" - hence its Waltz feel, and the waltz dance in the video), and different tunings, 30STM have really set the bar for other bands to live up to.

Shannon Leto (Jared's brother) is by far one of the most amazing rock drummers to appear recently, with technical drumming, amazing fills and an overall brilliant performance.

And don't listen to Amazon's comment on their Bjork cover, "Hunter" is a stand-out track on the album, a brilliant alternative, synth epic.

30STM are a band that mean business, well, Jared does at least...

Never one to dissapoint, Jared Leto is back with the follow up to their fantastic debut album, and its just as good, if not better than the first. Big production, huge melodies, futuristic electronics and imaginative lyrics, anyone who likes any kind of rock/metal music should check this out, its that good.

"A beautiful lie", the second masterpiece of ThirtySecondsToMars is absolutely good. They seemed to move on in a new direction, different from the first self titled album. I truly like all the tracks, my favorite one is "the fantasy". With "A Beautiful Lie" you can feel for the second time the rhythm and the sound of another far planet, with the impressive voice of Jared Leto and the sound of his mates.Every song has meaning and depth to it, lyrically and musically. There are two tracks that you must listen to: "Hunter" a cover of Bjork song and "The Battle of One" that in my opinion is a bridge that connect this new album to the first one. This is their growth, thier consacration.
My suggestion is "Go and buy it".Those 4 guys worked hard on this new release and they deserve to be listened and appreciated by all and in many countries.BUY AND ENJOY A BEAUTIFUL LIE-IN STORES FROM AUGUST 30TH.
