What people are saying about the new Imagine Dragons single

Since the Nickelback writeup was wildly popular, I decided to start a new series I'm calling "What the people say". Imagine Dragons is the second group to get the crowd sourced review treatment.

Walk through that turnstile and feast your eyes on this skyline of music…

Turnstile - "Gravity": I expected chaos. Instead I got a mix between straightforward rock and hardcore. The vocals sound like Zack De La Rocha of Rage Against the Machine. I very much dig this.

Callin’ for more single reviews? Here ya are.

Scandroid - "Empty Streets": Dark industrial new wave. That's the moniker I give this sound. I know little of this artist, but it gives hope to a style of music that unfortunately has Blood On the Dance Floor as its main representative to the world at the moment. The song is club ready and arena ready at once, and robotic ...
