I was trying to think of something amazing to write for my first post on this new blog. But I was thinking “what could be a better topic to start off with than a review on a great cd?” I would say music makes up at least 50% of the person that I have become and the person that I continue to be. It’s one of the things that makes life worth living. I’m a true believer that music continues to be one of the best mediums to express yourself through. Whether you’re creating it or listening to it.
Thanks for joining me on this journey of my first Blog, Elite Eternity.
Here goes my first post:
As I sit here and listen to this ridiculous song by who knows who. I’m reminded of the Heavenly Music that I heard just about an hour ago. Today was the day that I would come home to I Empire on my doorstep, go downstairs and listen to the long awaited album un-interrupted. The words that came to my mind about half way through the album, (in no particular order) were these: wow, amazing, inspirational, heaven and an array of others. I had been waiting for this album for about a year and a half now (since their last album: We Don’t Need To Whisper) and I can truly say that it blew me away. The words to each song were inspiring and had great meaning and the actual music was just as inspiring as the words. I would recommend this album to anyone with any taste for good music. For those of us who are worried about bad language in this corrupt society, the only “bad” track on the whole cd is Rite of Spring (which also happens to be one of the best songs). The rest of the album is 100% pure.
After re-reading through what I just wrote, I realize that I sound like a loser when I say “wow, amazing, inspirational, and heaven”. I won’t change it though, I’m sure I’m not the only one that thought of those words. Just get it and hear for yourself.
Call To Arms
Love Like Rockets
Star Of Bethlehem
Rite Of Spring
They also have a really cool demo video on their website: www.angelsandairwaves.com. Tom Delonge (former Blink 182 Guitarist and vocalist. Now Angels and Airwaves band member) always has new things up his sleeve. From what I gather, they’re making a whole video that has their music in it. It’s going to be like a Super Music Video. I’m pretty stoked for it. In the meantime though, I think this cd will tide me over.
Excerpt from Rite of Spring: “If I had a chance for another try. I wouldn’t change a thing. It’s made me all of who I am inside. And If I could thank God that I am here and that I am alive and every day I wake I tell myself a little harmless lie: the whole wide world is mine.”
