EDITORS’ NOTES

Recorded in the midst of a bitter contract dispute, This Is War is a show of outsized bravado. “This is not a game,” Jared Leto cautions atop the foreboding synthscape of “Escape," and for the next hour his alt-rock armada unleashes a maelstrom of industrialized post-grunge angst. The relentless intensity suits Leto’s acting chops. Amid the techno-emo of “Night of the Hunter,” he declares: “I will break your heart/Tear you to pieces and rip you apart”—and yet still sounds sympathetic.

My absolute favorite band ever

This is one of my favorite albums ever made. It makes you tear up, laugh, ya get all he feels. It's just something 30 Seconds To Mars is able to do every time they release or create something. I adore this album so much it's definitely my favorite besides A beautiful lie, LLF+D, and their self titled. I can't decide which album is my favorite tbh. I've tried but, once u listen to all of them, you really can't decide. 30STM is definitely an extraordinary band and they are my favorites. #ehelonforever
