EDITORS’ NOTES

Andrew W.K. doesn’t just like partying, he inhabits it—taking the bombast and excess of arena rock and elevating it to mantra. Fist-pumping, gate-crashing, dragon-slaying, and, in general, a pretty good time, You’re Not Alone plays like an hour-long exclamation point, setting daily affirmations—“Music is worth living for!”, “Make your dreams your destiny!”—to a continuous charge of booming drums, airbrushed guitars, and planetarium-ready synths, recalling everyone from the Ramones (“I Don’t Know Anything”) to Meat Loaf (“You’re Not Alone”) to Journey (“The Devil’s on Your Side”).
