Nothing Close to 'Light Me Up'
on 7 May 2014
I waited so long for this album! But damn I was so disappointed. 'Light Me Up' was such a good listen, chugging guitar riffs, thumping drum beats and Taylor's soaring vocals made it one of the finest rock albums of it's generation. But the follow up is far from that quality. The opener 'Follow Me Down' carries some of the influence from 'Light Me Up', but falls way short in quality during the chorus and bridge, same problem with other tracks such as 'Going to Hell' and 'Heaven Knows'. It seems as though TPR have forgotten how to write really great chorus', something they excelled in during 'Light Me Up'. The album slows down far too much, on 'Light Me Up' you had a couple of slow acoustic songs, but this one is full of them, and in my opinion, that doesn't bring out the best in TPR. A decent album, but it should have been a lot better following the quality of the amazing first album.
