This album sounds like it was made in 1998 and not in a good nostalgic way. It’s boring and lacks depth.
Fitting album title
Like one other reviewer mentioned in their post: Pop Evil never make the same album 2x. “Versatile” is exactly the way I’d describe this band and this album. I’ve been a fan since “Onyx” and quickly picked up their back catalogue, including this Independently released album “War of Roses” from 2004 and fell in love with the sound. Then, when they came through Houston on their last leg of touring for “Onyx”, they toured with a still very new and yet to ripen Badflower and Red Sun Rising and I had the fortune of seeing that show and I have hardly missed a show since! Great group of guys, great band with a fresh sound and they just get it.. these songs on “Versatile” are memorable anthems you can play over and over again and not get tired of that easily. My favorite tracks so far are “Let the Chaos Reign”, “Set Me Free”, “Breathe Again” and “Raise Your Flag”.. nice work, guys (and gal)
I see that they’re evolving but in a good way
This whole album is exactly what the title is. They are trying some new things, at the same time staying true to their roots. The lyrics speak true as well. This album deserves more than 5 stars. You 1 star rating people don’t know true art. I’ve been listening to PE since 2013, I never thought that they would try making songs like these back then. They did an awesome job on this album and even surprised me especially with Same Blood and Worst In Me when I finally heard those tracks.
To be honest, I have liked the last few albums, but I have not loved them as much as Onyx. Versatile is a solid album, showcasing all of their talents. Lee's vocals are stellar. I'm very excited about this music.
Not their best work
Zero originality, zero inspiration
So I didn’t think I was gonna like this album after hearing “Work” but I have to said it’s a pretty good album. Pop Evil has always been a band that never puts out the same album twice .It’s def not as good as past albums ,but a solid record. By far the best two tracks on the album are “Breathe Again and “Set me free” The rest are what you would expect from PE post - Onyx
Work is def the worst track on this record. “But you don’t have to take my word for it.” (Cue music fill )
Kudos to anyone who knew what that previous line was from😀 give yourself a hand 👏
Just What I needed
