Product Description

Madina Lake set the stage for an immersive three-album trilogy with their debut, From Them, Through Us, to You in 2007. Set in the fictional 1950's town of Madina Lake, the story began with the disappearance of a gorgeous local celebrity named Adalia. The plan for World War III was to outline the battle between good and evil in the final chapter of this fantasy, however, real evil intervened. In June 2010, Matthew was brutally injured after stopping a man from beating his wife. He ended up in a coma for five days with a fractured skull, broken jaw, and a swollen brain. After four months of recovery, Matthew was back in the band's studio, The Attic, working on new material with his brother and band-mates. World War III sees the group following every creative impulse to the fullest. On the album's first single 'Hey Superstar' elegantly ethereal textures bleed into propulsive guitars just before an anthemic hook takes hold. The song rises and falls like a roller coaster of riffs and melodies. Other songs bring listeners closer to the band than ever before. 'We Got This' is an uplifting tribute to Matthew from Nathan, showing the strength of their bond. 'Imagineer' proved to be a truly perfect dream come true for the twins. Matthew and Nathan planned on taking a weeklong retreat to Sedona to hang with legendary Smashing Pumpkins main-man Billy Corgan. Focusing on Matthew's healing, they didn't think they'd end up working on music with Corgan, but 'Imagineer' was born from one of Corgan's riffs during that trip. Given the events of the past two years, Madina Lake are ready for anything. For Nathan, there's one crucial thing he wants listeners to walk away with. 'You can survive anything' he declares. 'What goes down shall rise again. Life will throw things at you that you can't even fathom surviving, but you can. If someone feels that after listening to World War III, we've done our job. To have the opportunity to make music, we're the luckiest people in the world. Thanks to everyone for saving the life of my brother and the band'

Been a massive Madina Lake fan since From them, through us to you.. And I pre ordered this from America to make sure it arrived on time. The album is very different to FTTUTY, and Attics To Eden.. Similar style to the Dresden Codex and this is brilliant.. The songs have some great riffs and edgy catchy lyrics. We then have the emotional contrast of "We got this" which described the trauma of Matthews horrific incident, has to be one of the best albums of 2011, if not of ever. Stand outs for me include "Fireworks, Imagineer, We Got This, Hey Superstar and Howdy Neighbour"

This album is the third to come from Madina Lake - it is (as said in the title of this review) a brilliant CD. I personally prefer their first two albums, but there's nothing I dislike about this one! I went to see them live on the 12/11/11 and every song sounded amazing! Nothing to do with the CD but if you like this band go see them live as they were on of the best live performers I've seen....but back to the CD. Stand out tracks have to be Hey Superstar, What It Is To Wonder, and Imagineer.

Overall, if you liked the last two albums, or are considering it off the back of hearing one or two tracks, don't hesitate to buy it!

p.s. don't download, long live CD's! :)

Just like the previous reviewer I have to say that this is a good if not very good album. I just don't feel that it is as good as the ones before.

Nothing wrong with it and maybe it will go up to 5 stars with a few more plays. If you like the band you will like it. If you don't know of the band please try another album as them are both better.

Overall well produced, nice guitars, good heavy alternative rock.

I like it and do not regret buying it.
