Sound — 10
Well here comes another Tom DeLonge (Blink 182, Matchbox) band, but with a new twist, it's actually good. The sound of Angels And Airwaves is purely amazing. It has an almost epic/star wars feel to it. Definatley something new in this day where the same stuff is heard over and over. After listening I have decided that the best/favorite songs are their current single The Adventure, Do It For Me Now, and It Hurts.
Lyrics — 8
The lyrics in this album are amazingly deep for Tom, I honestly didn't know he could think like this. The lyrics cover many topics ranging from love to war and beyond. As for the lyrics they too are epic and match perfectly. Tom's voice has never been considered great by any means, but it too matches the music and he sings with enthuiasm that I think he may have lacked earlier in his career.
Overall Impression — 9
Angels And Airwaves debut album is definatley something impressive. Compared to Tom's other bands it pretty much takes the cake. I love the catchy guitar riffs that the band has in almost every song and look forward to hearing newer and greater stuff from a band I plan on following for most of their career.
