Album Review

2011's "Sail," a thick blast of paranoid, midtempo, industrial-tinged electro-pop, was the centerpiece of Awolnation's platinum-selling debut, and its fevered Trent Reznor-isms and heavily barbed hooks (and very 21st century refrain of "Blame it on my ADD") lent themselves well to late-night TV dramas and intense sporting montages. Run, the Aaron Bruno-led outfit's sophomore outing, doubles down on the attention deficit with a dizzying 14-track set that channels everyone from Muse to the Beach Boys, offering up a grab bag filled with huge arena choruses, bucolic harmonies, and meaty dance beats. Bruno comes out of the gate coiled and ready to strike with the unnerving title cut, which introduces a sleek, orchestral, minor-key loop and a mantra of "I am a human being, capable of doing terrible things" before exploding into a full-on NIN-style hissy fit (had it arrived a year earlier, it would have made an ace stand-in for the Eels' "Fresh Blood," which adorns the opening credits sequence of HBO's true crime Robert Durst documentary The Jinx). Bruno pulls a complete 180 with the breezy and soulful "Fat Face," but wastes little time in getting back to the dystopian workout regime on the brazenly retro "Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)," a hook-filled, heavily arpeggiated blend of classic new wave and early-'90s big box pop that falls somewhere between ELO, New Order, and Imagine Dragons.

It's about time!

They are long overdue on new material, and this already sounds epic. I'm so excited for one of my favorite bands to release their next album.

It was a let down

As a HUGE fan of the first album, this was a huge let-down, maybe some will like it but as someone who has been waiting a long time for this I was disappointed by how tame the music was. It wasn't exciting, it didnt keep you guessing, and it wasn't what made me fall in love with AWOLNATION in the first place, and trust me no one is more disappointed than me that I had to write this review

So far this is an unimpressive album....

Biography

Born: November 11, 1978 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '10s

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,...
