Customer Reviews

different, but better.

definitely not what i expected, but i was pleasantly surprised. some tracks sound more like coldplay or old radiohead, but they all fit so well and taste so sweet! i was pleasantly surprised by the catchiness of the songs, and how endearing tracks like atlas and false start are. this cd suits them.

Good album, but not what I was expecting...

I loved Wiretap Scars and Porcelain - two of my all time favourite albums - so you can imagine how anxiously I was awaiting this release. After digesting Threes for a couple months, I am a bit on the fence over the album as a whole, but its definitely worth buying. There are some tracks on Threes that are pure Sparta gold: Untreatable Disease, Crawl, Unstitch Your Mouth, Without a Sound and The Most Vicious Crime are wicked songs that you will be giving solid 4 stars to in your iTunes. Some of the tunes seem like they are trying too hard to experiment and break into the mainstream or emo scene a little too much: Blood Spills, False Start and Atlas belong on a U2 or Coldplay album - I actually had to delete them from my iTunes! But, I am a bit of a fan and as it goes, we want our favourite bands to evolve but not alienate us, right? If you haven't listened to Sparta before - buy this - you'll like it. If you are a fan already - buy it - you'll like (not love) it, but be afraid... there are obviously two directions battling on this new album: the roots of Sparta vs. going mainstream... If you haven't seen these guys live - GO! - they are awesome. Hopefully they are listening to the crowd and get a bit harder on the next album.

Best album in years

Love this album. I got it when it came out and I'm still not sick of it 2 years later and that is rare for me. The songs are more in line with Radiohead or Coldplay but they rock so much better. Catchy tunes, melodic transitions. The music is just plain beautiflly written and played. 5 stars!
