First Listen: 30 Seconds to Mars
I have been waiting for this day for 4 years. Ever since 30 Seconds to Mars disappeared after their 2005 release “A Beautiful Lie,” fans have been wondering if we were ever going to get another album out of them. Today, the first stream of their new record “This is War” due out December 8, has been posted.
The mellow “Alibi” features a gorgeous piano opening and discusses the struggle of life as Jared Leto almost whispers “I fell apart, but got back up again.” A few of the songs feature a crowd of backup vocals that sound like fans at a concert and add an element of comfort to each song. Even the upbeat tracks “Closer to the Edge” and “Kings and Queens” feature anthems that will leave you speechless.
“This is War” is the soundtrack to your life that you have been waiting for all these years. From lyric after lyric, Leto doesn’t give you time to stop thinking, and we thank him for that.
