Today, I will shortly review the latest album by Imagine Dragons. It was first released in November 9th of 2018. It is the 4th Imagine Dragons album installment, and it has received varied ratings. The Original Listing has 12 songs. They include Natural, Boomerang, Machine, Cool out, Bad Liar, West Coast, Zero, Bullet in a Gun, Digital, Only, Stuck, and Love. The album review has a lot of controversial statements attributed to it’s. The Guardian gave it a 2 out of 5, stating that "the most streamed rock band in the world may want us to believe that they are angry philosophers, but the reality doesn't change a gilt-edged mainstream formula." Metacritic gave it a 59/100 based on ten reviews showing a varying opinion of the public. Newsday gave the album a positive review, saying: "It sounds like the start of something even bigger for Imagine Dragons." I will concur, there doesn’t appear to be many reoccuring themes.The only themes I’ve noticed are: improving self esteem, moving towards a better relationship, holding onto love, inability to communicate, breaking from society’s industrialization. The album itself is a collection of songs that have little uniformity. I’d give the album a rating of 8/10 in comparison with the band's recent albums. The album is authentically new, catchy, carries a positive message, and has drawn many to it’s melodic pieces.
