Even Angels Could Hear Them

Alright, so my review on this might be a little late. But as soon as I saw and listened to Angels and Airwaves on MTV, I was awestruck, and I'm definitely getting their debut album, WE DON'T NEED TO WHISPER (out 23 May 2006).

Tom and the boys have definitely brought alternative rock on to an epical journey with this fine offering. Their first single, The Adventure is already becoming a new anthem on the airwaves this year. It's a dreamy track racked with the energetic unison of riffs, beats, and lyrics that go "...and here we go life's waiting to begin...".
Followers of Tom DeLonge's previous side project, Box Car Racer would be pleased to know that The War has somewhat almost that similar kind of musicality. With raunchy guitars and quiet bars here and there.

This awesome foursome definitely have what it takes to step things up in the alternative scene. From the 3 tracks I've listened from, I give this album a 6.5/10.
