Reseña de álbum

Following his group sojourns with major-label projects Home Town Hero (on Maverick) and Under the Influence of Giants (on Island), Aaron Bruno resurfaces as a one-man band (albeit with a lot of help, including longtime partner Drew Stewart) under the name AWOLNATION on Megalithic Symphony. A megalith is a large stone, so a megalithic symphony would seem to be an ambitious suite of rock music, and the album fits its title if one interprets the ambition as an unfettered eclecticism and sense of whimsy, as tethered to constant dance beats. Bruno seems to have built his tracks up from the percussion patterns, and once he got the beats he liked, he layered poppy melodies supporting lyrics sung in falsetto or a gritty tenor, with plenty of goofy electronic sounds in between. The "anything goes" quality takes in a spoken-word track ("Some Sort of Creature") and songs that recall everything from Prince to Men Without Hats. It all comes together on the 15-minute closer, "Knights of Shame," which begins with Bruno imploring, "Dance, baby, like the world is ending," and continues through various sections including a rap by Cameron Duddy, and ends, after a minute or so of silence, with a hidden track that finds Bruno strumming his acoustic guitar and croaking, "It's been a long time waiting for you." Megalithic Symphony engages the ear from moment to moment and allows Aaron Bruno to try out a variety of ideas, many of them half-baked, but all of them entertaining. [A Deluxe Edition added a second disc of remixed and live tracks.]

This album is so fantastic that you should be warned ahead of time. You may not be able to listen to anything else for days, and you may feel very compelled to attempt dance moves that might provoke those around you to dial for help.

Despite this, do your ears, soul, and feet a favor. Buy this album. Listen. Enjoy.


I guess I'm the only one who didn't experience a life changing experience with this album, but I just don't think it's that great. Yes, it is different, but only if by different you mean it emulates several worn out styles and not just one. The music shows a surprising range and an undeniable talent, but there is nothing overtly new or altogether complex about it save two exceptions.

Sail is one of the best songs I've heard out this year. It is the one truly original and complex thing on the album. It alone is worth the 7.99 (but hey, it's .99). Knights of Shame is also worth owning, mostly because while an eclectic album full of emulations is not something I endorse, a staggering nearly 15 minute track that contains so many different styles without becoming old or seeming forced is worth recognition.

Besides these two tracks, however, I just don't see anything to write home about. This is written to sell alternative pop, and the fleeting glimpses of pure soulful sound are drowned out by the appeals to popularity. I'm not saying it isn't good, and if, like hundreds of others, you get enjoyment out of this album I bear you no judgement; but I think, given the obvious talent shown in this album, we can expect a lot better from AWOLNATION in the future.

Just Incredible!

Just ran the Boston Marathon in my fastest time to date and I'm convinced it's due to this incredible album. The beats to these songs are so moving that I just couldn't stop and, more importantly, they made me want to speed up. The lyrics are insane and totally inspirational. I really wanted to sing at the top of my lungs at mile 24. Now, I can't stop playing it in my car, again, screaming as I drive. Truly one of the best albums I've run to and listened to in years.

A solo project of Aaron Bruno, AWOLNATION began as a creative outlet for the songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Bruno, who had been a member of Home Town Hero and Under the Influence of Giants, needed a break from the collaborative process and hoped to find a place for some of his songs that didn't fit with his other bands. With AWOLNATION, Bruno built a kind of creative free-for-all for himself, allowing him to mix genres as he wanted in a style reminiscent of Beck, blending live instrumentation,...
