COLD WAR KIDS, LA DIVINE
(CAPITOL RECORDS) - APRIL 7, 2017
Cold War Kids are relatively underrated in my opinion. While hits have been abound from previous records, this one feels like the most complete. The entire record is just a solid piece of work, using the same pop rock fun they've used in the past. Vocalist Nathan Willett has never sounded better than LA Divine, and I didn't feel like I had to skip past any tracks at all. Just an all around fun, rocking album of good tracks. Even the band themselves consider this record to be the best collective of what they've ever done. I can solidly agree. And "So Tied Up" features a huge up and comer: Bishop Briggs. Easily the best cut on here.
Standout tracks: "Love Is Mystical", "Can We Hang On?", "So Tied Up"
