The long awaited album by Imagine Dragons "Evolve" has epitomized the standards which an evolved rock band should keep up with its contemporaries. With eleven exciting tracks, their third album has diverse songs that reveal different facets of human life.
The pre-released song 'Believer', the one in the Nintendo Switch Super Bowl commercial, had over 25o million Spotify plays (which was expected, I guess). The track is about bottling our emotions and letting out pain to make ourselves stronger. A transcendence to light from darkness is the core of its lyrics. "Walking the wire" and "Rise up" makes us remember the rare originality of their renown tracks. Meaningful lyrics coupled with heavy bass is the key attribute of "Walking the Wire". Another notable track in "Evolve" is "Whatever it takes" which is kind of personal and connects itself with "Believer". Music enthusiasts have considered "Thunder" as the most underrated track in this album.
The previous releases outshines the current album "Evolve" and it's evident from the mixed reviews by critics.
But these songs redefine the paradigm of ideal "modern rock music". Imagine Dragons have created powerful and at the same time well constructed music tracks. Each song has become unique in its own sense.
Reynold's truly amazing voice makes us forget that these songs are personal and delivers yet another album comprising of uplifting raw flow of emotions.
