With their self-titled third album, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros soldier on with an earnest hippie-commune style as leader Alex Ebert seemingly wills away bad vibes by singing with a positivity that rarely flags. It sounds as if a world music carnival has hit town—and while The Magnetic Zeros don’t break out into a drum circle, they do create a festive atmosphere. That’s true even during the more desperate-sounding moments, such as the pleading yet laid-back soul of “Please!” Handclaps are as integral to the band's sound as the punchy brass section, and “Better Days,” “Let’s Get High," and “If I Were Free” are certainly inspired by the optimistic tones of the early psychedelic era (particularly The Beatles). Jade Castrinos' lead vocal on “Remember to Remember” is a welcome change of pace, offering sweetness to a fine piece of soul-pop seemingly from the mid- to late '60s on an album bearing a 2013 copyright. The deluxe edition adds three bonus tracks.
Edward Sharpe does it again.
Their first album was incredible. It has classic songs like 'Home' and 'Janglin' and 'Carries On.' The second album was more subdued, less classic songs but they were all relaxing and beautiful. But this album… from what I've heard, this is gonna be their best one yet. 'Better Days' really utilizes everyone's vocals in the best possible way. The song evolves into a beautiful crescendo with everyone singing and Alexander croaking out incredibly emotional vocals. I say, either buy this album now or buy it when it becomes a quintessential classic.
Marked my calendar the day I heard about this album. WORTH THE WAIT AND MORE. I will never tire of this band. All time favorites. Bless this band. The music industry isn't all bad.
This album is one of my most favorites from Edward Sharpe. Combining an old-school rock 'n roll flavor with a Motown bluesy vibe. The sound on this album reminds me a lot of the late Beatles, Combined with the Gloriousness of Edward Sharpe and the magnetic zeros. I would definitely recommend this album... it is a must!
