In exactly one week, Blood On The Dance Floor will be releasing their brand new album, Evolution. It is currently being streameed exclusively through Hot Topic's website, and I feel like they're on to something.
BOTDF is always talking about how they're all about contraversy, but until this album, it appeared as if their music was all about sex.
I feel that this album really expresses who they are, and how much they actually care about the issues in life. There's 18 songs on this album, and twenty one on the deluxe edition.
Lyrically, this is their best album yet. They've taken things they clearly feel very strongly about, and put them into songs. My personal favorite is probably, "The Right To Love", which is all about not discrimating against anyone. "Every man, woman and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunities, equal dignity. Without discrimination, regardless of race, sex, religion, sexual
preference or social status. When you were born, you were born with the same human rights as everyone else. You have the right to live, you were born free and equal to have freedom and choice of your religion and the freedom of expression. All men and women are created equal…"
I'm in love with the lyrics on this album, you can tell they really worked very hard on it. I understand why the working title was "R/evoluiton", because clearly BOTDF is on their way to starting a revolution. Musically however, I feel like they could have done better. A few songs on the album have their normal sound, such as "Revenge Porn", and "The Last Dance". I found the music to be boring, but the lyrics have so much power to them, that I'll look that over.
I give this album five stars! There's songs on this album that every person currently living needs to hear. Maybe it'll open people's minds, where eventually discrimination would be a thing of the past. Get this album on June 19, or listen to the live stream now. Even if you haven't liked BOTDF in the pa
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
