Angels & Airwaves - LOVE

Maybe it was because I was on the road and kind of fell of the music scene, but I completely missed the talk about this album. I was also expecting more from the Blink-182 side of the band (Tom). Musically, the album is a continuation of the previous two, with a easy blend of electronic, space sounds parlayed with the conventional guitars, drums and bass to create that louder-than-life, celestial sound that Tom was going for by starting A&A. Deeper lyrics about love and life abound throughout the album, including the track "Letters to God, Part II" which is a follow-on to the first part written during Tom's Boxcar Racer stint. Overall, there isn't too much of a departure from their previous two albums, so if you enjoyed them, chances are you'll enjoy this one. Oh, and it was released for free on Modlife. But you can get it here for free, too. My favorite track: Shove.
