Imagine Dragons - Night Visions

2013-02-26 12:46
What we thought:

The new kids on the block have cemented themselves in the music scene with catchy tunes, giving the already yearning indie music industry just what it wants: a bit of fresh blood that actually delivers.

Although Imagine Dragons reminds a bit of other groups, they have raised the bar on artists such as The Killers, Snow Patrol, The Fray and The Script with their unique sound and image.

From their powerful first track on the album ("Radioactive"), they manage to grip you in a whirlpool of sounds - music that is not only pleasant to your ears, but has you singing along and doing those awkward little dance moves in your car.

Every song on the album is unique. Whether it's an upbeat tune, a catchy melody or something with a serious tone dripping in emotion and heartfelt lyrics, there's something for everyone.

It's fresh, it's new and it's simply put a good new addition to the unpleasant and struggling music scene at the moment.

With their sultry sounds, Imagine Dragon's debut album Night Visions will just add that bit off spark to your day with their positive lyrics and upbeat tunes.

Best track:

Radioactive - It's raw, powerful and dripping with rock chords that make you want to jump on the table and dance like there's no tomorrow (I certainly did).

Worst Track:

Every Night - if you compare it to the rest of the tracks on the album, it just doesn't manage to impress... At all.

Sounds like:

If The Killers, Snow Patrol and U2 were to join forces, then Imagine Dragons would be the product of their creation. Hinting at elements from these three groups, Imagine Dragons reminds you why they might have a shot at fame.

Their debut album brings a new, fresh vibe to a starving indie music industry, but also manages to convince you that they are here to stay with their unique sound and image.
