I have to confess that I was a bit afraid about what this second album could be, because I just adore their first one! But it's been a month I only listen to it (+ Torches + new songs from The Black Keys...) and
So then? Some songs (like 'Pseudologia Fantastica' or 'The Truth') sound like nothing else, but I also appreciate them and for me, they perfectly knew how to stay true to their style while evolving. Music still has this amazing (Helena)beat and joy and energy which make me dance!
Besides that, lyrics improved too, being more adult and serious ('Are you what you wanna be?' and 'Ask yourself' made me think about life, consumerism and future a lot...!)
Plus, I find Mark Pontius (drums) is as cute as a surfer....
“If you want more and you'll get there.Throw a quarter in the well.
Well, it's okay, you're fine, ambition's not a crime.
And you say that dreamers always get what they desire.
Well I've found, the more I want the less I've got.
Is this the life you've been waiting for.
Or are you hoping that you'll be where you want with a little more?
Well ask yourself…” > Foster The People
