Pretty decent review, I generally enjoy the song-by-song break-downs. And yes, everyone should give this a listen regardless of their preconceptions about Angels & Airwaves - if you think they suck, you'll think this sucks a lot less.
'Take everything you know about Angels & Airwaves and throw it out the window. Forget that the front man Tom Delonge is the center of all of the blink-182/Angels & Airwaves comparisons and controversy. I urge everyone to take at least one objective listen to LOVE in its entirety. You might be surprised.
The opening track “Et Ducit Mundum Per Luce"---
I'm sorry, there's no way I could continue after seeing that. Fucking LOL.
"Take everything you know about Angels & Airwaves and throw it out the window."
Really? To me, this album was no surprise. I was excited for it, but it sounds so similar to the last two albums that I haven't found a reason to stick to this album, other than they are newer songs. The songs don't stand out as much for me. I thought by their third release, they would grow, or build upon something more, but this album is just another repeat.
I still love some of the tunes, but this album will have to grow on me, in time. I just don't see what is "new" on it. The could have been an continuation of I-Empire and no one would have known the difference. Again, not saying their bad songs, but just disappointed. I was expecting a surprise, but was feed the same generic spoon of classic AVA material.
