This is War; a long overdue and highly anticipated new album from 30 Seconds to Mars.
And they've really delivered.

After hearing the release of Kings and Queens, which I loved instantly, I could see how much they had changed.
And after listening to the whole album, I could tell the ones that will make a massive impact (goosebumps are a good indication), and those that will grow on you.
Personally, Hurricane and Stranger in a Strange Land really hit the spot.
They feel so powerful, and really unique.
The fans in the background give Hurricane a great atmosphere.
And the music in the beginning of Stranger in a Strange Land can't help but captivate you.

I'd say (and this is just my opinion), that the weakest songs that will take time to grow on me(and possibly others) are Vox Populi, Search and Destroy and Alibi.
They are in no way 'awful' or 'dull'. Just not memorable when I think about the album.

The rest of the songs I haven't mentioned, really add to an extraordinary album.
You just have to listen for yourself.

Lastly, I truly adore how they've included the fans in a few of the songs, without going over the top.
As I previously mentioned, they add a great atmosphere to each song.

If you're even considering buying this album, don't think for another second and just buy it.
There are songs that you'll love, possibly accompanied by goosebumps, and those that you'll come to love in time.

Format: Audio CD
After 2005's release of the truly epic album 'A Beautiful Lie', 30 Seconds To Mars have become a international phenomenon winning various awards including Kerrang!'s band of the year in both 2007 and 2008; so it was in no doubt that their latest release, 'This Is War' had a lot to live up to.

After expecting another fantastic album similar to 'A Beautiful Lie', Jared, Tomo and Shannon have produced an album which most people did not expect. The lead single, 'Kings and Queens' only had a highest positioning of 3rd across the entire world suggested that this was a weak song, and that 30 Seconds To Mars had had their heyday. However, this is not the case.

What most people (myself included) had expected from 30STM was another 'A Beautiful Lie', an album with solid tracks throughout; and some truly awesome songs (see From Yesterday, The Kill and Attack). Jared et al haven't tried to replicate ABL, what they've done is created something with far more intrigue and depth. The title track, 'This Is War is be, in my opinion, one of the greatest songs of 2009; the suspense and drama achieved in this song is simply great. Other exceptional songs to look out for: 100 Suns, Vox Populi and Search and Destroy).

The only bad thing about this greatly artistic album is from the track L490; which has an opening unparalleled to any other song, but still doesn't really make it any good at all.

In short, if you're a 30 Seconds To Mars Fan, or a fan of well produced music with intriguing and thought provoking lyrics, this is the album for you.

Got this album because I liked a few of the previous songs and the MP3 album was only £3. Damn glad I did as this is epic. Every single track on here is utter quality. The vocals are amazing, lyrics are thought provoking. Was expecting more songs like "The Kill" but this takes them to a different league. Excellent work :)

I have been a fan of this band for a few years now and have the previous two awesome albums. I already love the current single 'Kings and Queens'. Some of the other tracks took a couple of listens to get used to. But now I love the album, Jarred's voice is awesome, the drumming and guitars will blow you away. Wasn't sure about kids quire initially, but it really does work well. Amazing use of strings too. Give it a few listens and you will love every track. A total grower!

I only discovered 30 Seconds to Mars about six months and instantly fell in love with their music, and having been lucky enough to see them recently at Koko's in London fell in love with them all over again. Was so excited about the release of This Is War and having received it last week and listened to constantly since can say I am not disappointed. I think this album is achingly beautiful, heart rending, powerful and passionate. I'm probably a little biased but definitely the album of the year! Give it a try and I bet you fall in love with it too - along with their previous offerings 'A Beautiful Lie' and '30 Seconds to Mars' X

Whilst prolonged anticipation of the band's latest release may have raised expectations to impossibly stratospheric levels, the progressive, electro fuelled results of more than two troubled years are immensely impressive.

Jared Leto's rasping vocals take centre-stage once more, rising and falling between high-spirited guitar anthems and quick tripping cadences - overtured by expansive electronic and choral drama. This is a hi-fi, heavily engineered piece of work leading to the edge of disconnect. So whilst overplayed, the imperfect choral injections from the band's fans are welcome in returning a warmer, more modest, digital-free touch.

Tracks span contrasting themes from alienation to inexorable optimism, and although lyrically constrained within sound-bite simplicity, the album's message rides on a wave of melodic energy throughout.

Occasional déjà-vu is understandable as motifs from A Beautiful Lie reawaken in new form. Still, This is War represents an accelerated progression of the band's imagination and creative velocity.

With This is War, 30 Second's to Mars can't fail to leave an impact.
