30 Seconds To Mars – A Beautiful Lie Review


Link: 30 Seconds To Mars

The Inside Pulse:
Fronted by Jared Leto, actor of such great films as Fight Club, Requiem For A Dream, and Panic Room, 30 Seconds To Mars started out in 2002 with their first self titled album. While not critically acclaimed by any means, it also wasn’t slagged, which proved one thing: movie stars CAN in fact rock out too. Just don’t tell Keanu Reeves or Russell Crowe.

Positives:
This isn’t really like a lot of stuff out there. A nice spacey sort of feel. They rely on very cool sounds effects.

It’s also a very easy record to get into. The tracks don’t vary a lot and does make it a nice listening experience.

Negatives:
While the tracks don’t vary a lot, that also can serve as a negative. They all seem to blend together, which makes distinguishing tracks a mute point.

Cross-breed:
New school Deftones with a mix of Perfect Circle.

Reason to buy:
It’s really not a bad disc, however it’s not a great disc. But for albums featuring movie stars, this is easily the best of the bunch.
