Avatara's review of 30 Seconds To Mars "Abeautiful Lie".
on 6 January 2015
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.
