CD Review: Never Shout Never Learn "Time Travel" With New Album
The album begins with the electro, art house, pop sounding title track that shows the band experimenting with different sounds and tempo’s right from the beginning. It is hard to categorize the music of Never Shout Never as displayed in “Awful” as it switches from a mainstream, dance-pop beginning to a grand “Queen-like” rock ending which continues into “Silver Ecstasy.” I wish that Never Shout Never would do a rock opera in the near future, because their songs “Robot” and “Complex Heart” sound as if they would fit perfectly into a storied soundtrack. The album closes with “Lost at Sea,” a slow-chanting, power ballad that leaves you wanting more from this band.
Their “Time Travel” tour will begin in 2012 in Europe and joining them will be A Rocket to The Moon and Plain White T’s. The album was released in September on Reprise Records and is available everywhere. For more information on Never Shout Never, please visit nevershoutnever.com.
