Album Review

The second volume of Angels & Airwaves’ Love project picks up where the first left off yet trumps its predecessor quite handily, appropriately offering a cinematic spin on A&A’s trademark blend of Cure and U2. Angels & Airwaves don’t abandon that sky-scraping spaciness — echoing guitars borrowed from the Edge careen all over the place — but there’s a force to their textures, some aerodynamic hooks, some shape to their songs that nevertheless don’t sacrifice atmosphere. Perhaps this was designed as a soundtrack to the A&A-produced movie Love but Love: Part 2 winds up as the group’s most effective album yet: it channels their ‘80s hero worship into something propulsive and distinctive.

Customer Reviews

Where have I heard that before?

I'm really a bit torn about this album, on one hand it features some of Angels & Airwaves most enjoyable and genuinely engaging songs. On the other hand it's an album that shows an extreme lack of creativity that's hit from the band. This lack of creativity shows itself in the blatant borrowing of melodies from the bands past songs. This starts with the chorus of 'Saturday Love' which is a pretty obvious riff on their song 'Hallucinations'. Then again in 'Surrender' where the chorus/bridge is basicallythe exact same melody of their previous song 'Some Origins of Fire', and that song itself actually borrowed that melody from an earlier song 'The Adventure'. But this borrowing doesn't stop there, 'Dry Your Eyes' takes a lot of its melody from another one of their previous songs 'Everything's Magic', but the worst part of this song is the fact that the entire intro is almost exactly the same as Blink 182's song 'Violence', except a lot more epic.
These things really shouldn't happen on any album, if a band is so tired of ideas they can't make new ones up, then it's time to call it quits.
But there are still positives here, even though these songs do rip off others, the actual melodies they take are good ones, and are used effectively in context. And for the songs that don't steal, most of them are actually pretty engrossing, especially when the band actually extend themselves in songs like 'Moon as my Witness' and 'The Revelator'.
Overall, if you don't recognise the obvious lack of creativity, the you'll probably really enjoy this album, me on the other hand, I could only say it's okay.

Still going strong

With Tom back in blink you would expect Ava to be his blow off for B-sides, but Angels and Airwaves have delivered another polished album and Tom has done well to the sound of Blink and Angels seperate. Definately worth the buy 'Saturday Love' and 'Surrender' are some of the stand outs, but the'"Cure-esk" 'The Revelator' is a stab in a new direction.

Love part 2

The new album is AMAZING!! I really thought it would be the same as part 1 that it was just a few songs that couldn't fit into part 1. But it wasn't! Even with AVA's outer-space tunes they always manage to find different and great new sounds like they did on this new album! I'm really surprised how UNDERRATED this band is!! And why arnt they bigger then they are??? Tom delonges Melodies for AVA could really be compared to coldplays on a music term.. The boys have done it again! (well drumming atom) hope the new drummer fills his shoes well! 5star! LOVE!
