Angels & Airwaves-Hallucinations

This pleases me hugely to be honest. I love Angels & Airwaves, and it’s superb to have some new music from them. It’s been over 2 years since the release of their last album, so forgive me if I’m a tad excited. This will be a far from neutral review.

This has that brilliantly distinct AVA sound, with the delayed guitars creating the dreamscapes and getting that anthemic feel that these guys are so good at making. The chorus is typically memorable, and it’s definitely becoming something they get right on a very consistent basis. The verses are also typical AVA, with extravagant emotional descriptions accompanied by the all-encompassing view DeLonge has no problem with expressing.

Really good track, and importantly it doesn’t stray from what they do best. I’m always harking on about how artists/bands should progress and evolve, but frankly I want these guys to stay like this forever! They’ve got exactly what I look for in alternative music nailed down to a tee: long may it continue.
