Album Review

How do you know that former blink-182 leader Tom DeLonge intends for his post-blink project Angels and Airwaves to be taken seriously? Because throughout their debut album, We Don't Need to Whisper, he relies on sounds and textures borrowed from 1988, the era when college rock was filled with atmospheric sonics and earnest politics. Specifically, he layers delayed guitars ripped from U2 over soundscapes equally inspired by the Cure, New Order, Peter Gabriel, and The Unforgettable Fire, all in an attempt to fashion a modern-day protest record. The result might be less than successful, but it is interesting, particularly in how DeLonge's desire to be taken seriously has led him to use the serious music of his adolescence as a signifier that he's serious now. [This edition of We Don't Need to Whisper includes a bonus track.]

Customer Reviews

Amazing album, a tribute to Tom DeLonge's music career!

When I heard about AVA, which was just after some Googling to see what the Blink guys were up to having not heard much for a while, I was instantly impressed at the tracks that were on the official site for sampling. I checked out the website and all the stuff on it, a very cool process since they've put solid effort into making it clear what the album is about, what their goals were with it and it really amped me up to hear more. Tom mentions on the site how he'd like people to listen to this album. A dark room, soft light, maybe a candle, with headphones on, sitting on the floor. He says all he's asking is 50 minutes of a lowered heart rate and escapism. I did just that and I was just amazed at the tranquility and progressional beauty of the album. It's really a work of art, and a pleasure to listen to over and over. I honestly have never given so many tracks 5 out of 5 stars, hence my rating for the album of 5 stars. If you are a Tom DeLonge fan, or a fan of any of the band's he's been in, I think you'll love this album as I did. It's an evolved form of his style, and the talent of all the band members has allowed for this album to be just that cut above if you ask me. <3 you guys, you rock.

AVA is A Okay.

Tom DeLonge is one amazing guy. How one can write such awsome songs, over and over again, is a rare and amazing talent. I really was not expecting much of this album to be honest. All the hype built up and around it made me fell a little unsure about the overall quality of this amazing band. Yes DeLonge voice will always remind us of late Blink and Box Car, however this is nothing like either of those bands could even contemplate realeasing. Personal Favourites, "The Adventure" "Do It For Me Now" "Good Day".

A lot to live up to

This album had a lot to live up to with all the hype generated from site's across the web from Blink182 sites to their own site. If you came wanting to hear an updated version of anything Blink, you wont hear that here. Certainly the album Blink 182 was a stepping stone on the way and even Box Car Racer came close, we see here a more mature and experienced collection of songs. Lets just hope this isn't the last of Tom DeLonge, because there is a wealth of talent and song writing artitstry there just waiting to be set loose on the world.
