Cincinnati-based Walk the Moon self-released an enticing album late 2010 called "i want! i want!", which created some buzz, primirily due to the can't miss-must see video that went viral for the band's break-out song "Anna Sun". It didn't take long for major labels to come knocking at the door, and the band ultimately signed with RCA. Now finallly comes the band's major label-debut album.

"Walk the Moon" (11 tracks; 43 min.) starts off with several re-recorded songs from its self-released album with "Quesadilla" and "Lisa Baby", the latter being a a prime example of what makes Walk the Moon such an enjoyable band: smart guitar hooks, heavy drums-and-bass, plus a can't miss sing-along beat. "Next in Line" is the first of 5 brand new songs on here (the older songs are rerecorded with the current line-up, of which lead singer Nicolas Petricca os the only remaining original member). Then comes the band's signature song "Anna Sun", which by now sounds so throroughly familiar, yet still feels fresh. Other standouts among the new songs are "Tightrope" and, even better, "Shiver Shiver", which Petrucci singing falsetto but the underlying grooves are just massive and fun. The only surprise on here for me would be "Iscariot", not one of the band's better songs and feeling out of place due to slow/pensive (instead I woud've included "Me + All My Friends" or "The Liftaway"). "Fixin'" is another great new song. Things finish up with the now-classic "I Can Lift a Car", which also is a perfect summary of the band in one song.

In all, this is a boisterous and fun album, with hardly a weak moment in it. But to get the full Walk the Moon experience, you need to see these guys in concert. I've seen them a bunch of times in and around CIncinnati in the last 18 months, and a good time is always guaranteed. Do not miss them if you have a chance to catch these guys live! Meanwhile "Walk the Moon" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I was surprised to learn that Walk the Moon was a band that originated in the States. Something about the band's sound conjures up memories of Blur (circa PARKLIFE). Their selftitled album is full of electronic rock anthems; it's poppy, fun, and exciting. The slippery guitar riffs, the distorted bass, the pounding drums -- it all makes for layered music that is very accessible and really engaging. It's a great major-label debut - this band is going to find an even bigger audience than its previous ANNA SUN EP allowed.

The album opens with "Quesadilla," an introduction that begins with fluttering synthesizers before launching into a rolling Johnny Marr-esque guitar riff. "Lisa Baby" launches the band into a fun, poppy, electronic number. I was familiar with the Walk the Moon's breakout song "Anna Sun," but I have to admit that the rest of the album does a good job of matching this songs quality; it's not even the best song on this album. "Jenny," a Maroon 5-like track, sounds destined for play in dance-clubs. WALK THE MOON is consistently good, but I will agree with other reviewers that I wasn't crazy about "Iscariot," a slow track that doesn't quite pack a punch. The album is concluded with the fantastic "I Can Lift a Car;" a track that is optimistic and melodic. It ends WALK THE MOON with a calm, determined smile.

While this genre doesn't usually grab me, WALK THE MOON is fantastic; I loved this album. It's engaging, accessible, and energetic. This band is destined for big things. Fans of Young the Giant, Two-Door Cinema Club, Imagine Dragons, or Grouplove will find a lot here to enjoy. Standout tracks: "Lisa Baby," "Anna Sun," "Jenny," and "I Can Lift a Car." Sampling these songs here on Amazon will give you a good idea of what to expect from this album.

I discovered Walk The Moon on my recent research of modern bands paying homage to the long lost classic 80's New Wave sound. I sampled some of their songs and felt they had some clear authenticity with great and obvious influences, so I bought the CD.

After listening to the album in its entirety, I can't help but feel there's still some unrealized potential here. You have some wonderfully upbeat and catchy songs that would sit nicely along some of the best from thirty years ago, the three best tunes having been made into very entertaining videos: "Anna Sun", "Tightrope" and "Next In Line". I couldn't help but be impressed when I saw the vocalist sporting a keytar, (Howard Jones would be so proud), and the bassist playing a guitar with a look and sound right out of Duran Duran's "Planet Earth" video. But I guess it is cyclical, so it may have (thankfully!!) been inevitable that the look and sound of New Wave (which was highly scoffed at during the miserably lifeless and colorless 90's) would return again.

But the potential of Walk The Moon is marred by, dare I say it..., juvenile lyrics about girls. OK, so you're young and in a perpetual state of arousal. That's super, but part of the charm of the 80's was that songs could be about any random subject, (telephone booths, construction sites, bugs, anything and everything). Part of the escape with New Wave was that it wasn't the same bland lyrical fodder found in mundane pop music of the time, or any time for that matter. So while the music of Walk The Moon can be very catchy, some songs are ruined by the samey subject matter. The song "Jenny" would have worked if it wasn't just a moderately clever wet dream, and by this point in the album it was just too much.
