Thousand Foot Krutch is set to release their first album in two years on August 26. This album will be their ninth release since their start in 1995, and surely it is highly anticipated by many.
As with every album, some tracks stood out more than others. This particular one includes;
"Untraveled Road" stood out so much. Its all about living your own life, and taking the path less traveled. A lot of the lyrics were very attention grabbing, and the fact that it says, "These are more than just words on a record." (or something along those lines.) is incredible. Music speaks where words fail, after all. This song is entirely inspiring, and goes on the list of songs that everybody must hear at some point during their lifetime.
"Born This Way", title wise, sounds like it's going to be a cover of the Lady GaGa song, but this song is similar in meaning, but highly different. "You can't stop us, we can't be stopped." Be yourself, always. This song promotes that perfectly, and is very catchy, as well as meaningful.
"Give Into Me", "Light Up", and "Oxygen", all stand out as well. "Give Into Me" is entirely relatable, especially due to the fact that it speaks of feeling like you simply don't belong. Everyone has felt that way before. "Light Up" and "Oxygen" are sweeter songs, speaking kind words about a loved one. They say things about lighting up when they look at someone, and "You are my oxygen." They're both simply beautiful, and you can hear the love in his voice. He clearly means every word of it.
Over all, I feel like people will greatly relate to this album, and possbily be inspired by this album. It appears to speak of living your own life, and being yourself quite a bit, and that is a message that needs to be spread. Fans will not be disappointed with this album, because frankly, this album is arguably their best album yet. You can pre-order the album now through PledgeMusic, and get some 'fan only ' experiences once you do that. Hurry though, that offer ends on July 28! Please check out PledgeMusic for more information, and get the offer before its gone! Also, don't forget to get the lead single, "Born This Way" on iTunes now.
In case it was not entirely obvious, this wonderful album has earned a solid, shiny, five stars.
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.
