Poughkeepsie, a city of about 30,000 inhabitants in the state of New York, about halfway between the Big Apple and Albany, is just about to make its debut on an upcoming We Are In The Crown CD. The pop-punk group of singer Taylor Jardine made their debut under the name The In Crown with the single "iTunes only" with the title "For the win".
In June 2010, when the group changed their name to the current one, they released the EP "Guaranteed to disagree" and then stepped up to the billboard of the Vans Warped Tour 2010. The boys' debut album is called "Best Intention" and will be released in the USA on October 4th. The tape currently consists of:
S2 - Songs of Experience - Recensione
The slow downfall of an important group, the feeling of being faced with betrayal, a certain tendency to bend the sound towards the calming mainstream/showbiz circle, the basic idea of having sold completely according to the laws of the market. Two groups, distinctly adjacent to Coldplay - the first to have cold-played before this word was filled with this more or less precise meaning - seem to have gone through this process in the recent past: Muse and S2.
For the first, contemporaries of Coldplay, it's easier to draw a comparison not only qualitatively, but also temporally: when Chris Martin's volume with Milo Xyloto (2008) began its descent into artistic corruption, Bellamys began with Black Holes and Revelations (2006). For U2 the theme is more complex, because the story of Bono's group, now returning with Songs of Experience, is much more important and lasting.
For U2, the theme seems to be actually connected with a question of natural artistic decay: perhaps quite early, considering that their last big record is Achtung Baby, 1993. This cold play speech is not entirely related to the Irish group. U2 continued her artistic discourse and chose the wrong path.
Despite everything, Songs of Experience is one step ahead of the previous Songs of Innocence, where the single "The miracle (of Joey ramone)" was a lazy and satisfying work. The latter, on the other hand, opens unexpectedly well, in a way that does not correspond to the U2 logic: the almost three minutes of "Love is All We Have Left" present us with a group that gives us the idea of being strongly inspired.
The guitar part of Beck's "Loser" frames the beautiful pop of "Lights of Home" and anticipates the single "You are the Best Thing About me", a well constructed piece that fulfills all the tasks of the single: immediately, without nausea and as a driving force for the album - one has to say that U2 in their downfall succeeded again and again to extract singles or single songs (e.g. "Ordinary Love", later included as a remake on this album, from the soundtrack of the movie Mandela: Long Walk of Freedom) at least functionally.
I' m having trouble accepting your "You are the Best Thing About me". From the descendants of teen pop punk "Get Out of Your Own Way" to Ed Sheeran's winking "Summer of Love" to the disgusting choirs of "The Red Flag" to the shawm "The Blackout".
The songs of experience get lost in talking and laughing, and it's a pity, because there are moments you don't expect from U2 anymore, moments that are valid regardless of what U2 is today: the War' s U2 seems to shine almost in a typical U2 style track in "The Little Things That Give You Away" and in "13 (There is a Light)", which travels to the same areas as "Love is All We Have Left" and with which it forms a nice triptych together with "Book of Your Heart", there is the class that made Bono what he is Bono.
Experiential songs are confusing and frangible. Despite everything, there are points of light in this last work where you can admire a glorious past that Bono's group has never been able to transform into the present since the second half of the 90s.
