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.

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.

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!

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.

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...

This is their second album and it really took me by surprise, it is so good from a song writing point of view. In the days of NU Metal and EMO where bands and albums were nothing more than winey Nirvana clones this album was a breath of fresh air. Musically speaking this album has many different influences from Hard Rock to New Wave Electronica. 30 Seconds To Mars are a band who are diverse, talented and ground breaking. "From Yesterday" is the standout track and had an awe inspiring video release to promote the album. The feel of this album reminds me of Queensryche's "Operation Mindcrime" and is just as good in my humble opinion. If you love heavy music with different musical influences then 30 Seconds To Mars is the band for you and this album is a true coming of age. Buy this album with absolute confidence, it is well worth your hard earned cash.
