This album, in my opinion, is more of a personal album than their last one. Rolling Stone states in one of their articles, “it reflects decades of accrued emotional and musical wisdom,” while Entertainment Weekly calls it “their most focused album in years.” I agree with this, and I honestly feel they have put a lot of thought into this album.
My favorite songs from the album are "Somewhere Now," "Still Breathing," "Ordinary World," and "Forever Now."
"Revolution Radio Tracklist:
"Bouncing off the Wall"
"Too Dumb to Die"
I would give this album a 10 out of 10. They put a lot of work into this one because they got personal and worked hard. I just love how they mixed this album with a little soft/Alternative rock then went to pop rock. I really think you guys should go check it out.
