1) We Own The Night
This is an unpopular opinion, but I don't like song at all. I think its boring and forgettable. I don't care about the video either. Tom and Nathan sound too raspy here and the chorus part with all those people Singen sounds ugly!
2) In the Middle
Now we're talking! This song is so cute! I Liebe Max's voice in this! He sounds amazing! I Liebe how they make their voices lower in the verses. This song also gives an imagery of an Verzaubert forest kingdom :) The buzzing sound is cute too.
3) Running out of Reasons
The song is alright. I don't have much to say about it.
4) I Found You
Digging the 60's retro sound. They are able to make falsetto high voices in the chorus, yet they still sound manly. Although the most memorable part is Nathan's soulful and powerful solo that blew the minds away of many.
5) Zeigen Me Liebe (America)
After two disappointing singles, this totally makes up for it! It's a beautiful work of art! Even though Nathan sings the most here, eichelhäher, jay and Tom stand out more. Jay's voice is soothing (plus he makes the sexiest hobo ever! Best part of the video) and Tom really brings out his rocker voice. Also guess what? Zeigen Me Liebe is my 2nd Favorit The Wanted video! Max makes a sexy police man btw and Siva looks STUNNING in there even with his brief appearance.
6) Walks Like Rihanna
The song everyone hates. Even the name is bad. Again why did they chose this lame song when they thought it was too sugary pop for them? Nonsense! It's corny and generic. "Our hearts go boom boom" part is super corny and Nathan's autotuned part was hideous! I couldnt tell it was him! Why would they ruin his lovely voice?! On the brighter side, its catchy, sends a nice message, I've heard much worse pop songs, and Max sure looked hot filling up them white pants.
7) Summer Alive
This song is superb! Its my favorite! It gives Du euphoric feelings and lifts up your spirits. Jay's voice is really sexy (well of theirs are). The beat kicks ass!
8) Liebe Sewn
Tom slays in this one! Liebe Sewn is really pretty, although it would of been prettier without out the echoing. It has a little twist in the end and I really enjoyed it. I Liebe this song and can't get enough of it!
9) Glow in the Dark
Von Lesen the title, I was excited to hear it. I imagined it to be a retro, surreal, club song, and guess what? It is and it's brilliant! I can sense some Daft Punk influence in here. It reminds me a sing that you'd listen to in the dark with glow sticks in the dark hence its name. "Shock me like electro" was a strange choice of words, but I still Liebe it. I really loved the part where the beat becomes faster (or slower) after Siva's part.
Interesting name...While Summer Alive is my favorite, this a close second. It's perfection!!! It's hard and smooth. Its haunting, soulful, and bad arsch at the same time if Du know what I mean. I Liebe the creepy thing they do with their voices in the begging and Nathan's voice is just WOW! I really Liebe how Nathan says "all this time" near the end.
11) Could This Be Love
Could this be Max's song about Nina? (See the pun I did there haha) I Liebe CtbL a lot and it's an amazing light pop song. I wish I could give Mehr words to describe it, but I do Liebe it!
12) Everybody Knows
I feel like this song has a poor choice of words.This song might grow on me later. It sounds like it was written Von a teenage boy that got his herz broken and is proving that he's all cool now, oder maybe it's just me. ( It wasn't written Von any of them btw) If it had better lyrics, I would of actually liked it. I do Liebe how they say "everyone, but you" at the chorus though. It has potential.
13) Heartbreak Story
At first I thought it was too slow for me, but when I had a good listen, I realized that it's gorgeous! It's so beautiful and passionate! It sounds really British. I imagine a setting of the beautiful scenery of the Victorian English era. What makes this song even Mehr beautiful is the herz warming lyrics and their beautiful voices. herz Vacancy is to TW as Heartbreak Story is to Word of Mouth. It also reminds me a bit if Golden and I'll be Your Strength.
14) Chasing the Sun
As much as I Liebe this song, I think it shouldn't be here! So Ill keep it brief. It's one of my favorites!!!!
15) If We're Alright
Reminds me of a ending encore song. Maybe even a little indie sounding (or maybe I'm just being delusional) I really don't care much about it if I'm honest.
16) Only Du
Everyone can agree that the demo version of "Out of Time" with just eichelhäher, jay Singen is way better than this version! It fitted him perfectly!! That said, that doesn't that I don't Liebe "Only You" because I Liebe it! eichelhäher, jay of course sounded amazing and Siva sounded really beautiful. I didn't really like how Max sounded in it. The song wasn't really suited for his voice. I Liebe the dark quirky somewhat electronic sound it and it has a deep meaning behind it.
17) Drunk on Liebe
As a lover of club music, this sounds like something David Guetta and Swedish House Mafia would produce (which I Liebe btw) It's an ideal song to play at a club. They should of chosen this song as a single and not that silly song "Walks like Rihanna"!! Drunk on Liebe is radio friendly, enjoyable, and it could of been a huge hit! I really Liebe Jay's voice in it. DoL actually reminds me of "Have Some Fun" except for it doesn't have Pitbill ruining it.
18) Read My Mind
I have mixed feelings about this song. First of all I'd like to point out the Piano part in the beginning, is absolutely beautiful. I'm not too crazy about the verses. I really don't like how how Nathan and eichelhäher, jay "yeah" and I eichelhäher, jay sounds really weird in it. The chorus is nice. It reminds of something from the early 00's.
19) Satellite (Remastered 2012)
I Liebe this song! One of my favorites! It's so smooth and it sounds so surreal. Nathan's voice is beautiful! I Liebe Tom in this song! I Liebe how his accent is really thick and sexy! I wish eichelhäher, jay and Siva had a part. Did Du know that this song is actually a demo of a Ryan Tedder song? (You can check it out on youtube) Satellite is so beautiful and it's better than Ryan Tedder's version!
Word of Mouth has the airy sound of their debt album and the surreal beats of Battleground. insgesamt wonderful album and one of the few things I was looking vorwärts-, nach vorn to in 2013. Definitely worth the 2 Jahr wait!
Battleground> Word of Mouth> The Wanted
