iTunes Review

Even the Blink 182 reunion couldn’t put Tom DeLonge’s side project to rest. Angels & Airwaves’ Stomping the Phantom Brake Pedal opens with “The Score Evolved: Reel 1 (Diary),” a gradually building instrumental of layered synthesizers and guitar drones. (It's seven minutes and 41 seconds, but the vocals don’t enter the equation until nearly six minutes in.) The song’s following counterpart, “The Score Evolved: Reel 5 (New Blood),” pulses with timeless-sounding Krautrock textures: antiquated keyboard notes intertwine with cold piano parts over a mantra of restrained beats. This really is a huge and brave departure from the band’s orchestral emo-pop beginnings. “Reel 6” of the triptych “The Score Evolved” plays like a soundtrack to a remake of heady sci-fi films like The Idaho Transfer, save for some jagged guitar distortion. The EP’s second half starts with "Love Two Re-Imagined: Surrender Remix," a perfect chaser for anyone who missed DeLonge’s vocals in the first three songs. Here his boyish singing floats over murky drum tones and skittering rhythms. The “One Last Thing” remix kicks out a four-on-the-floor rhythm track.

Not Real AVA...

This should be called "Stomping The Phantom Pile Of S@#&". I bought the album just on respect for everything they have done before. Imagine when I start to listen and it is this. Tom, let be honest. Your just trying to make money on this one. Weak boys, weak. Kind of insulted as a fan. I know I can be alone in this.


For those who say, "What happened to AVA!?" this isn't supposed to be a full on album. It's a few experimental things that Tom and the boys were playing around with in between albums. It's pretty good for what it is, and I enjoyed the remixes. Just these three new songs are STILL better than the garbage the fills the top 100 on iTunes and pop radio. Keep up the good work, AVA!


Diary is a great song. The rest on this ep are meh..

With the hiatus of pop-punk superstars blink-182 in full effect by the fall of 2005, singer/guitarist Tom DeLonge revealed the formation of his new band -- one he'd already been working with for six months -- called Angels & Airwaves. Much hype ensued after the announcement. In interviews with outlets like, DeLonge proclaimed that his new music would borrow elements from bands like U2 and Pink Floyd and, ultimately, be something of a revolution to change the face of rock & roll forever.
