Album Review: Neon Trees - Habits

Genre: Rock
Release date: March 16, 2010

Neon Trees - Habit

Finally a rock band that makes fresh and organic music. Old school rock nowadays has become somewhat of a fresh thing, quite an oxymoron.

I can feel their pain, in their song Love and Affection, song about having the feeling of your love not as worthy as the other person. Animal is a song that was released a couple months before the album was. The riffs sound very raw and catchy while drumming is consistent and fun. This was the song that first drew me to this band in the begining. Your Surrender has a very memorable chorus, but this song sounds a bit basic compared to the others, nonetheless still a great song. 1983 is a nostalgic song about going back to 1983 and revisting former flames. I love the way he belts out "1983". Let's go back to 1983. :]

The last three songs. Girls and Boys In School starts off with less instruments and more vocals at a slower consistent pace. The drums come in... the vocals pick up, and then slows down again. I love when songs do this. The song, In The Next Room has a loud and upbeat chorus with a consistent tempo overall. Our War starts off with dialogue "When we were in our youth we had dreams we could fly. We had friends that weren't visible and love that never died and as we grew old...", it's a pithy song about letting go.

My favorite songs in this record are definately Love and Affection, Animal, 1983 and In The Next Room.

Overall I love this band especially for the singer's stylistic vocals. It sounds like a mixture between classic rock and modern rock, sort of reminds me of Brandon Flowers of The Killers (they actually opened for them in 2008).
