The reasons behind buying albums always interests me; did you hear the album from a friend, or on music tv? etc etc. I have to confess, somewhat sadly that I bought this album through being a massive My So-Called Life fan (thus having always adored Jared Leto, in what I think his best role....controversial!) and reading an article about the forthcoming album on mscl.com!
Any MSCL fans will no doubt already know from the song 'Red' seen on the show, as I did that frontman Jared Leto has got an amazing voice (kinda like Chino Marino [Deftones] without the whine) and he doesn't disappoint in this debut album. That teamed with good lyrics of a sci-fi subject, a drummer playing along the same lines as Danny Carey of Tool, the fantasy meets somewhat glam overtones and produces a modern sound, refreshing in this era of same-old:same-old new metal.
Capicorn [a brand new name] is a great starter to the album, but if that doesn't get you hooked, I found the subdued Echelon was a good middle point to build out from. It took some effort to get into the mood of this album, but like other good bands e.g. Tool, the more time it takes to get to know/like the album, the longer you will love it. This one is a definite 'grower' (Balladie 2002).
If you like A Perfect Circle, Deftones, Tool and Pink Floyd (to a degree) then you should definately try it and give it some time.....happy listening! :)

30 Seconds To Mars. A band now synonymous with rock fans all over the world. Yet this was perhaps only after the superb 2005 album A Beautiful Lie.

Personally, I was initially introduced to 30STM in 2005 just after A Beautiful Lie was released, and absolutely loved them. Ever since, I've wanted to hear their early stuff, but have struggled to find it. The other day, I found the album here on amazon and snapped it up straight away.

'30 Seconds To Mars' only sold around 100'000 copies, and to be honest, its not hard to see why. This is a rather different sound to many other 'alternative' rock bands, and I initially found it quite difficult to listen too. It is often rather heavy and I didn't like it at first; it wasn't as listener-friendly as A Beautiful Lie.

The lyrics are odd too. In the bizarrely titled 'Buddha For Mary', this line struck me as totally random; 'Mary...had a thing for astronauts'. Also, there is 'Will you rape me now?'. Totally bizarre, no? These are just a few of Jared Leto's musings during the album.

Although it may be argued that '30 Seconds To Mars' is a totally different sound to 'A Beautiful Lie', I would disagree. If we are talking style, it is almost identical; extremely powerful choruses, coupled with light and melodic verses. The only difference is the guitars; Solon Bixler replaced by Tomo Milovic.

Overall, I enjoyed it, but not to the extent that I did with 'A Beautiful Lie', which is significantly easier to listen too, and has better songs too. It didn't deserve the critical panning, but it certainly isnt a gold selling album. A good start, could do better, and ultimately they did with 'A Beautiful Lie'

This album is living proof Hollywood stars can rock! After the failed attempts at rock stardom made by some big screen stars, Jared Leto has proved it can be done and with some style. The soaring vocals are complemented by heavy, riff laden guitars and thrashing drums. This, however does not mean it isn't melodic-'93 Million Miles' and 'Year Zero' combine crashing choruses with calmer verses before ripping back into a loud chorus again, and I love it! 'Buddha For Mary' and 'Capricorn (A Brand New Name)' are probably my favourite tracks but on an album with no weak tracks, it was a difficult choice!

30 Seconds to Mars main claim to fame is the fact that their front man is reasonably well known actor Jared Leto, who had a minor role in Fight Club and a more substantial role in Panic Room.
With this in mind you would exspect 30STM to be a useless vanity project, for Leto to live out his fantasy of being a rock star. But this is not the case at all. This is a propper band, that write their own songs, play their own instruments and have been doing so for a number years.
Their music is very unique and certainly doesn't sound like anyone else around at the moment, and for any band to make something original in the over crowded music scene of today, is a great achievement in itself.
The best way to describe them is an up dated version of the 80's synth-rock sound combined with a touch of todays new metal and a range of intelligent lyrics. and it works suprisingly well.
If you are unsure of what i mean you should go to 30STM official site, the albums best track 'Capricorn' plays as you log on. This will give you a better idea of their sound, and if you like that song, then you are certain to enjoy the rest of the album too.
So if you fancy something new and differnt, then you should give 30STM a chance. They are a suprisingley good band and deserve to be noticed.

If you haven't already listened to this, DO IT NOW! This band is absolutely awesome. The Ethereal sounds, the off-beat drumming, the harmonious vocals...it's all amazing!
To give an idea of what it's like just think Perfect Circle with a Sci-Fi twist. Once you hear this album, it'll be in your CD player for quite a while.
Yes, yes, Jared Leto (AKA 'too blonde' guy from Fight Club) is the singer but don't let this put you off. This is not just another side-project of an actor...it is a full force, mind-bending experience.
DO IT NOW, CHECK IT OUT!
You won't regret it :)
