Doesn’t live up to the previous 2 albums
These guys are seriously talented, and this album is still good, but lacks that depth and intensity that really made Vessels and Transmissions really set them apart
Honestly some of the best music I have ever heard (not annoying pop as some are claiming)
This is some of my favourite music I've ever heard. I'm not sure why people are complaining that it is "pop" because very very few of the songs sound like pop and the ones that do actually do it well instead of sounding crappy like a lot of that stuff. Overall it has a very good variety of various rock, electronic, and mildly pop stuff. Very impressed, and I can be picky with music. These were some of the first songs I ever heard by them and I can definetly say they tie with my other favourite band.
Starset and pop don't mix
By S.P.A.M Games
Starset wouldn't make a "pop" song. Every band wants to be popular, and that may include adding more stuff to the mix. Most of the songs are "rock", and Waking up, Fault line, and Solstice, are just softer music. Trials, Manifest, the other 11 songs are rock, so why crack down on Starset when just three of the songs aren't as good. Every band has a couple less great songs. Don't judge a book by it's cover.
Doesn’t live up to Vessels, but...
The whole record feels pretty basic, nothing real special, quite frankly. It’s not bad and I get why people like (and why they dislike it), but I’m not much of a fan.
Songs I very much enjoy: Other Worlds Than Theses.
Songs I find entertaining: Trials, Manifest, Echo, Telekinetic, Solstice, Perfect Machine.
Songs I don’t care for: Faultline, Stratosphere.
Songs I strongly dislike: the rest of the album.
By Crazy Ei8ht
Their first 2 albums gave me chills. This one isn’t as insane as the other 2. I’ll give it an okay. Not my favorite.
To the haters
I understand why some people don’t like this album. The style is different, there’s a little more of a pop feel, and the story feels a little unfinished. But I think that’s the point. Personally, I still don’t think Starset can make a bad song.
Came across this band about a year or so ago while searching songs. Monster caught my attention. Love that song! This band is awesome. Love their style. Could listen to them endlessly.
Starset Does It Again
Another great album from the Space/Cinematic Rock band. These guys couldn’t make a bad song if they tried!
Please make up your mind
Is this band pop, like everyone else who packed it in to become pop, because that’s what sells these days, or is it metalcore with the screams and hard guitars? Please, make up your mind. If you’re going to sell out, like every other band out there (Skillet, Nine Lashes, etc.) then please pick a genre and stick to it. I cannot stomach this. Feels like I’m listening to Maroon 5 or BlackPink or any other popular pop band these days, except for the screaming. This band sounds a lot like Falling Up, however. So far I’m not impressed with any of the first 8 songs I have been listening to on Apple Music. Maybe because I loathe pop music. Oh well, the search continues for a band who has not sold out. Sigh...
New single and album is fantastic!
By AnneXin - Chris
Loved the peaks and valleys of the single. This I feel is pushing rock forward. It has so much substance and emotion. Love it!
Edited- The whole album is incredible! The merge of music genres is absolutely amazing. Keep on rocking guys.
