EDITORS’ NOTES

The platinum-selling “Best Day of My Life” put American Authors on the map, and their sophomore album is filled with a similar brand of bold pop-rock euphoria. If the titles didn’t give it away, there's a top-of-the-world optimism in explosive, inspirational tracks like “Right Here Right Now,” “What We Live For,” and “Go Big or Go Home”—all guitar-driven rave-ups built around huge choruses. These are the most dynamic when the band adds a flourish of banjo (“Pocket Full of Gold,” “Mess With Your Heart") or whistling electronics (“Nothing Better”).

American Legend

American Authors is brilliant in so many ways. They are one of the most unique bands I have ever listened to and I have considered myself a fan since their debut. This is a fresh follow up. Making a sophomore album is always the biggest test after an amazing debut. The goal is to create a new sound while being able to preserve the fanbase. Well, American Authors is both diverse and expressive. They stick to their roots while experimenting with new elements. I am extremely excited to see them in Albany!

Skeptical

I'm a huge American Authors fan. I found them through the song "Believer" and was hooked from there. Their first album was fantastic, captivating, and just what I wanted from American Authors. When they released "Pride," I was so excited because it had been such a long time since I had heard anything from them, and it sounded like a newer, better version of them that still had hints of the American Authors I fell in love with. But, now that these other songs have been released, they sound completely different and way more Pop-y than what I expected from this band. I really hope that the rest of the album doesn't sound like this and instead more like "Pride." I don't want them to become the next "boy band."
