Sound: Blood On The Dance Floor's 2012 release, "Evolution" has a more mature sound than their previous albums. This is mostly an electronic album, but there is some good guitar work in some tracks. This album shows that this band has a variety of song styles. The first track "Rise And Shine" has a very creepy sound, "Revenge Porn" has a fast electronic sound like their previous albums and "You Are The Heart" has a very nice and relaxing sound to it. This album, like their other albums, shows that this band's sound is very original. Overall, I think this album has a great sound, which shows that Blood On The Dance Floor have progressed musically. // 9
Lyrics: The lyrics in "Evolution" are definitely more serious than lyrics from previous albums by this band. For me, the lyrics particularly stand out in the song "You Are The Heart". Dahvie is reaching out to someone who is suicidal in this track and basically saying that they shouldn't go through with it. The chorus opens with, "You are the heart, that beats inside of me, if you give up tonight, you give up on me". The other song's lyrics deal with bullying, revenge, sex, love and more. Dahvie Vanity has a great singing voice and his voice goes with the songs. Jayy Von Monroe is a great singer, whose vocals also go with this album. The vocals in this album are the best I've heard from this band and I hope they keep up the good work with their next albums. // 9
Overall Impression: In this album, Blood On The Dance Floor show clearly that they have progressed lyrically and musically. To me, the best songs on the album are definitely, "Unforgiven", "Revenge Porn", "Incomplete And All Alone" and "You Are The Heart". There are a few songs on this album that aren't quite as good as the rest of the album, but there are some special tracks that make up for this. I love most of the lyrics and themes of this album to be honest. If this album were stolen or lost, I would buy it again. It's just very fun to listen to and it is clear that the band worked hard on this one.
