Angles and Airwaves - We don' t Need To Whisper
I must admit I have a soft spot for Blink-182 so I give you Guitarist Tom DeLonge's band, Angels & Airwaves' 2006 debut album. It is an attractive blend of shimmering electronica and alternative rock, conjuring the glory days of 1980s pop with shiny, anthemic songs like the album-opening "Valkyrie Missile" and the stomping stadium rock of "Distraction." WE DON'T NEED TO WHISPER also revives the dormant notion of the concept album, with several songs taken from a projected film based on episodes from DeLonge's life. Think U2 without the messianic overtones, with a hint of Genesis thrown in for good measure.
If anyone is after any Blink albums leave a message in the comments. Cheers b
