3.0 out of 5 stars Overproduced. May 25, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First Album: Hard rock with an industrial edge.

Second Album: Hard rock with a hint of pop.

Third Album: Pop Rock.

This Album: Pop with hints of rock music.

There is nothing wrong with this album. But I am a hard rock and industrial enthusiast, and this album barely shows a hint of the roots that drew me to them with their early stuff. When I hear it I definitely recognize it as them - their sound is still very distinct. But they have made a very big deal with this and the last album about working with big-name producers and I think they've let the sound of those producers take them too far into a very generic direction.

I'd rate this 2.5 stars if it let me - it is well crafted but not made for me, and if you were concerned about the direction they took with their third album this one is even further down that road than before.

3.0 out of 5 stars Do you grow with the band or apart? May 21, 2013
Format:Audio CD
This is a interesting album to put into words. This is a band that started out with a very raw and unique sound. Today they have an even more unique sound, but has the band aged well?

If you listen to all of the albums in order you can hear and appreciate the transition that 30 Seconds has made. If you would listen to this new album after only hearing the first album, you would not know that it is the same band. Gone are many of the heavy guitars and drums from the first release. Programmed drums and loops of synth sounds abound on this release as they did on the previous album. At times it sounds like a move soundtrack and in a way that is what they have created. A soundtrack for our lives. Is it the same But one thing always remains with 30STM, raw emotion. Leto sings with full emotion again. If you are looking for more of the same, you might be disappointed, but why would you ever expect "the same" from this innovative band. My only let down is the return for the children backup on many of the choruses.

I think after 100 listens through I might have a different take on this release. I miss the hard rocking heavy guitars that I first fell in love with but as with most things the more time you spend with it, the more you will understand it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Progression...? Yes!!! May 23, 2013
By Shadows
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been seeing a lot of mixed reviews mostly regarding the bands move to using synthesizers and ditching some guitar work, a common move in this new technology/electronic age growing rapidly throughout the world. I find this record to be quite a gem in Thirty Seconds to Mars' discography mainly because each record has its own identity and this one's is the most unique and creative in my opinion. While I love their first two records, both of them have such common elements of alternative rock and post-grunge while their last two records blend so many awesome genres that the music just speaks for itself regarding how awesome and creative it is. I personally the love the record, I wouldn't change a thing about it. I do not call those who have been long time fans 'traitors' if they don't particularly like the album because it is certainly a departure from their previous endeavors. I do however believe that people should keep an open mind and honestly they should just appreciate the music and what it means not only to themselves but to other people. Mow back to the record, I will now proceed by conducting a song by song review with a few words describing why the rate the song that appropriate rating. Enjoy.

1. "Birth" 9/10 - It's a strong opening, something that pumps up the listeners, prepares them for the excitement that proceeds after the brief introduction. I love the brass section, so strong, powerful, great opener.

2. "Conquistador" 9/10 - One of the more rock oriented songs on the record, great riff, great lyrics, terrific vocals. One thing I've always loved about 3STM is Jared's strong vocals and powerful delivery. This record in my opinion properly projects Jared's magnificent voice.

1.0 out of 5 stars 30 seconds to Failure. December 4, 2013
By Arish
Format:Audio CD
The one thing I can say about this band . Is that they never repeat the same style twice. 1st album was unique , 2nd was phenomenal , 3rd was emotional and dark. Jared is a very talented person and its amazing that they don't duplicate the same loops , drum patterns or sounds . But without a shadow of a doubt I have to say this is really different but finally in a bad way. This is the blandest most uninteresting, unengaging , uninspired album they have ever done ! I hope that they get back to the darkness again and the unique production. Its not that this album is lacking guitars because if you listen to the previous works they fuzed electronics well. This just sounds like they don't care anymore they have moved on to more important things. If this was there album 9 years ago I don't think anyone would be on this page right now. I know people will try to see good in this even justify the bands lack of creativity. But the truth is this could be any indie band at this point. I hope that this review helps people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic journey of love May 25, 2013
By Sherri
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
It's hard to find the words to describe this album. I found it beautiful and haunting, but everyone will have their own unique take on it. Many people have said this is not true Thirty Seconds to Mars, but it has all the same components as the previous albums, just at times lighter than the other albums. Jared, Shannon, and Tomo made an album to be proud of it. It's intimate and I feel like I get to experience the journey they took to create this with them. I'm proud to have this part of my collection and proud to be part of the Echelon. :)

30 Seconds to Mars continues to impress me. I like this album as much as the last one, but the style of music is different than that of This is War.
