30 Seconds To Mars: A Beautiful Lie

Sound — 10
The sound is definitely different from the first album. I would like the hear more like this from Jared and the gang. If changes sometimes from song to song and you get an overall impression of the 3 years that it took the guys to make this album. And all the different impressions that they got for it.

Lyrics — 6
Jared Leto, I'm sorry, but he just is not the best lyricist. There are a few songs on the album that have wonderful lyrics (Attack, A Beautfiul Lie) other than that, they are pretty mediocre. They are good, but not great (except for those two songs).

Overall Impression — 10
I had never heard of 30 Seconds To Mars before going and seeing them play with The Used a few weeks ago. They really impressed me so I waited in stock antipation for the 30th when this album was released. As soon as it was I listened to it over and over again. It did not dissapoint me at all. It was better than I had hoped it would be after listening to the first album and seeing them live. Truly a wonderful album.
