This Is War By 30 Seconds To Mars
It’s been over two years since the Leto Brothers’ band, 30 Seconds To Mars brought us any music. Jared and Shannon, along with bandmate Tomo Milicivec, haven’t been resting on the brilliance of 2007’s A Beautiful Lie though – an unharmonious split from their record company saw them sued by EMI for $30 million. The court may have ruled in favor of the band, but the trio seem to have been left with a whole lot of pent up anger to put into their new album, This Is War. It’s not always completely clear who this anger is directed at, but after just one listen to this CD, you’ll be fully engulfed in 30 Seconds To Mars’ war cry anyway.
So if you are feeling the need to wage war on society (or pretty much anything, for that matter), take this is your “call to arms, brothers and sisters, it’s time to go to war,” and you’ll love this CD. But if, like a lot of us, you don’t care what message Jared Leto’s penchant for the dramatic is trying to deliver now, just listen to This Is War for some of the best soaring, solid rock music around at the moment.
