What new Empire of the Sun songs are you referring to? I've heard Wandering Star, Tonight, and Welcome to My Life and liked all of them (but I don't understand why Welcome to My Life isn't on iTunes yet...)

Are there anymore I don't know about?

Those are the ones I meant. "Tonight" isn't the worst song I ever heard but it still sounds a little too much like Passion Pit and the lyrics are generic. Welcome to My Life sounds like every piece of crap track that I've heard a million times before on the radio. That is easily one of the worst songs I've heard this past year. Their music used to mean something 7 years ago. Now it's just conveyor belt fodder for the masses in an attempt to propel themselves to 15 minute immortality. There's nowhere to go after this album except going back on the hallucinogens and write music from the soul again. They've turned into one trick ponies.

What about Wandering Star? That sounded like pretty basic EOTS to me, tbh.

Yeah and that's all it is; basic. Empire isn't taking chances anymore. They've traded their unique experimental style for quick fame and generic music. I dunno, I just don't like their new stuff at all.

So why do you still like Ice on the Dune? That album gave them a more mainstream edge than WOAD, but I seem to recall you enjoyed it.

Lol hey just because I can't stand mainstream music doesn't mean that I don't enjoy simple groovy dance tracks that Ice on the Dune had. I've even grown to enjoy a few Lady Gaga and Bruno Mars songs. I enjoyed it because it was a fun album that explored the dance floor without selling out to yawn inducing lyrics and borrowed rhythms which is exactly what Every Ocean seems to be doing. They lost me when they sold the rights of their new music to Absolut vodka.

I'd hardly consider Ice on the Dune simple disco. It definitely has a more specific sound than Walking on a Dream, but I think the amount of twists it throws in make it far beyond basic. I thought the sound of the tracks on IOTD had a level of size, scale, spectacle, and emotion that I couldn't find on WOAD. My issue with IOTD is the lyrics. They're artsy and creative and stuff, and they certainly didn't "sell out", but they often came off as forcefully complex and not adding up to much of anything. The lyrics on most of the tracks on WOAD, despite their weirdness, can actually be deciphered and have legitimately fascinating meanings to them. The lyrics to the IOTD songs are basically just strings of creative proverbs with choruses that don't connect very well to them. Thankfully, the sounds of the songs are beautiful and awe-inspiring enough to more than make up for it.

Well "disco" is a completely separate entity altogether. When I say "simple," I am not referring to the "size, scale, and spectacle" that you speak of. No disrespect but I have no idea what that even means lol. What I meant was the that the guitar riffs and synthetic melodies are fundamentally easy to play, albeit catchy. I don't know that IOTD as a whole contained a plethora of complex lyrics. Certainly not more so than WOAD. I mean, Swordfish, Hotkiss, Night, Tiger By My Side, and Delta Bay?? If you can decipher those without flaw or faltering, then I suggest you quit everything you know and pursue a career in music.

That's the point, though. They can be deciphered. I didn't find anything particularly decipherable to the lyrics on IOTD. Just random.

And I just mean that IOTD had a more emotional core to its sound. Aside from Without You, none of the tracks on WOAD displayed a whole lot of emotion, they were more based on experimentation and artsiness. For this reason, I originally wasn't fond of WOAD, but now I've learned to appreciate it a lot more. I'll always prefer Ice, but I can still like Dream on its own terms.

In regards to your worries about Every Ocean Tells a Story, I don't know if we can have any clear expectations at the moment. There's no telling whether their three new songs are going to be on the new album. Imagine Dragons released a fantastic metal-tinged song Battle Cry for Transformers 4, but it didn't appear on their next album, nor did it sound like any of the songs on it. So I just don't know if we can be clear about what's going to be on Ocean.
