  • Torches

    By Jonfriend
    Torches is the debut album from Californian indie-electro band Foster The People. 1. Helena Beat Catchy, dubstep beat, with a very memorable chorus. 9.5/10 2. Pumped Up Kicks Easily their most popular song, it has an infectious bass, and a catchy chorus too. 9.5/10 3. Call It What You Want This song is a favourite one of mine, with its chorus and ridiculously catchy bridge too. 10/10 4. Don't Stop Heard this first on a car advert. I love both the don't stop don't stop talking to me part, and the whistling bit. Both are equally classy, easy going and catchy. 10/10 5. Waste Less catchy than the others, more deep and serious. I like the chorus a lot. It just didn't stay with me like the others did. 9/10 6. I Would Do Anything For You My favourite. It always puts me in a good mood, and makes me wanna dance. The ooh la la chorus is amazing, and the verses are poetic too. 10/10 7. Houdini Another definite fave. The verses are some of the best lyrics on the album ; eye for an eye, but and f for fight' The electro whirrey riff is great too. 10/10 8. Life On The nickel Another catchy one, the lyrics are deeper compared to the rest of the album ; " The worlds got nothing for me" . The end part of the chorus is great. 9.5/10 9. Miss You When you first hear this song, you'll find The verses are decent, quite upbeat and bouncy, whereas the chorus is toned down, sad, and ballad esque. If the whole song was like the chorus, it would be my favourite. The verses are quite predictable, and don't work well with such a abnormal chorus. 9.5/10 10. Warrant Reasonably catchy, but nothing special. The minute of choir singing is pointless, and by the time the actual song comes around, ( 2 mins!) you are quite bored. It's still a decent song, just suffers in comparison to the rest of the album. Overall, this album is one of the best I've heard in a while. I. Not usually a fan of electro music, but here, it works well wi the catchy beats. 1. I Would Do Anything For You 2. Don't Stop 3. Call It What You Want 4. Houdini 5. Pumped Up Kicks 6. Helena Beat 7. Miss You 8. Life on The Nickel 9. Waste 10. Warrant

  • The best album I've ever heard

    By alwaysattract!
    It is truly rare for such a pitch perfect selection of songs to come along on one album, this is an absolute must own for all fans of electronic/ indie pop music or fans of music in general. Torches has a song for absolutely everyone, the beats range from fast paced and energetic, to beautifully composed indie pop anthems. The lyrics are thought provoking and meaningful and open to different interpretations and will more than appeal to those just wanting to hear a great story. The album artwork also deserves a ton of credit, the album art is unique and sums up the essence of Torches brilliantly, it will forever be commonly associated with Foster the People. To say this is the best album I've heard in years would be an understatement, to say this is among the best indie pop albums ever released would be an understatement, simply put (MY OPINION ONLY) this the greatest album that I have ever heard, if you don't already own Torches then do yourself a big favour and get it bought. Sheer brilliance by Mark Foster and Co. 10/10.
