For me, Thirty Seconds To Mars is one of the biggest bands in the Modern Rock genre, all time. Seems that they managed to consolidate this more for each release, especially after the last masterpiece This Is War frpm 2009.
They are now back with their fourth album Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams and all I can say is that no fan will be disappointed as the band once again delivers on the highest level. This time, they have chosen to move towards a more direct format compared the experimental and progressive This Is War. However, they have done so with finesse and Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams has like previously much room for fancy electronic melodies. Tracks like "City Of Angels" and "Up In The Air" is among the best the band has made with their bombastic and huge choruses.
Do not think this is their best album since I prefer when they are less predictable. But it is a very well done and consistent album that I’m for sure will have my top list of 2013.
