Biography

After the last note played on the last song of a marathon set a few years ago, Dan Reynolds, frontman for Las Vegas based rockers Imagine Dragons, realized it was all starting to come together. “We were playing a gig at this place called O’Sheas, which has the cheapest beer on the strip,” Reynolds remembers. “I was basically standing on top of the drums, the stage was ...

Editorial Reviews

Vinyl LP pressing. 2012 album from the Las Vegas-based Alt-Rock quartet. Imagine Dragons harnessed the restless energy of the city that never sleeps with two EP's in 2009, earning a string of local accolades including Best Local Indie Band 2010 by Las Vegas Weekly and Best CD of 2011 by Vegas Seven magazine for their third independent EP It's Time.

I love the band and the songs, but this album represents the absolute pinnacle of decrepit audio engineering. Perhaps someone accidentally left all the compression knobs cranked fully clockwise on the mixer, because that's exactly what it sounds like. I suppose it could have been mixed and produced to sound like a 0.5kbps mp3 compression on purpose, but WHY ON EARTH??? I have no idea whether the sound is the band's idea or the producer's, but as much as I like the actual music behind the distortion, I can't listen to the CD anymore since every note makes me cringe and feel like I'm destroying my amp and speakers even at a low volume. If you even remotely consider yourself an audiophile, avoid this album at all cost!

UPDATE: After a bit of research I discovered that all the added distortion/compression and totally overdriven sound is the brainchild of asinine producer Alex Da Kid. How unfortunate that someone in the music industry felt they had to actually ruin the sound of a good band in order to make them popular. I can only hope that this album is someday re-released without distortion at the proper recording level.

I love the group but their studio failed on recording the CD. Radioactive is extremely "fuzzy" or "clipped" or "muffled" or whatever you want to call it. The same is true for the rest of the CD although not to the same extent. The audio mastering is extremely poor.

For reference - Audio playback equipment used: a bare CD transport, custom build headphone amp(PCM1798 DAC, LM49990 pre-amp, and OPA827 amp), and Ultrasone Ed.8 cans.

I stumbled upon Imagine Dragons back in January through sheer stupid luck. The indie rock Gods must have been smiling down on me that day. From the very first listen to "It's Time" I was hooked. I knew from that moment that this band was going to go Big. Of course I didn't picture them going Big quite so fast (although the band has been working at this for years). It has been really cool to watch the band's rise in popularity. It seems like I can't turn on a radio without hearing "It's Time." What is cooler though is that as amazing as "It's Time" is, it's just the beginning. Night Visions is a stellar debut album. It is the product of hard work and vast musical talent. The songs hold common threads that make for a strong sense of album unity but the fact of the matter is that each one is a unique gem of enjoyment. Another review of the Continued Silence EP called Imagine Dragons a "radio friendly indie rock band" and that is a great description. There is an undeniable appeal here to the mainstream, even thought the quality is beyond the "mass consumption" label. From the well written lyrics and the percussive electronic beat to the subtle guitar work and vocals that are at once polished and natural, Night Visions is a debut album that sounds anything but "debut."

"Radioactive" - If the throbbing, pulsating beat of this song doesn't get you pumped there is something wrong with you. The vocals are firmly in charge of this stellar post-Apocalyptic rock song. Welcome to the New Age!

"Tip Tope" - I wasn't impressed with this song the first time I listened to it. After a few more listens I have to say that it has grown on me. I really dig the synth. There is a definite pop draw to this song, it makes you want to dance.

Not sure if it's supposed to sound like that or not, but I'm noticing that nearly the whole album sounds "fuzzy" or "muffled?"

I really like the beats in these tracks and I like the lead singer's voice, but the instrumentation all sounds kinda crap. On the first track "Radioactive" I thought it was just the style of the song, that bubbly distortion, but on the later tracks I noticed that it just sounds uneven and compressed sounding.

I know it's not my listening equipment, either, because the rest of the music in my collection doesn't sound like that. Until someone can correct me for convince me otherwise, I'm going to blame this on bad production/bad recording. I really want to like this band, but everything sounds off. I was excited to buy this album from listening to the samples.

If I'm wrong, why would a band choose to make "muffled" their music style?

Somehow, producer Alex da Kid thought that intentionally introducing that awful, cheap sounding distortion (several tracks, most notably beginning on 'Radioactive'), was somehow "artistic". What a stupid idea.

One word Alex...WRONG. It's not Eno-esque, not even close. It's asinine and sophomoric. You aimed badly and missed.

It's like Alex thought that he could pull off a musical equivalent of that classic photographic technique whereby emphasizing the "grainy" look of B&W Film can have a pleasing effect in portrait work.

HEY ALEX...IT DOESN'T WORK WITH MUSIC.

For the first time I can recall, I am returning a recorded work to the retailer because it is "defective in workmanship".

What makes me scratch my head is that the band didn't veto this idiotic idea. Oh well, they're young.

Hopefully the band still have masters that haven't had the distortion added yet. In a few years, maybe they'll release a "we booted Alex da Kid" remix.

I will buy it immediately.
