Wow, this is my first blog post in aaaaages! I can't believe it's been so long! I felt like it was time for another blog post, and since not much is going on in the MLP world and I have nothing else I'm really interested in enough to talk about right now I decided to check out this song, enjoy ! Icon for Hire are a more recent band. I thoroughly enjoyed there first album "scripted". The song Cynics and Critics was released as a preview of there upcoming album (name of which is not released yet) and comes out in a few months time ! So here it is: Now I may be a bit biased, but LOVE this song. I have listened to it for an hour straight, to see if I could find any flaws in it or anything that just starts to annoy me and currently I haven't. The backing music really fits, and the alternating fast and slow singing sections (making it almost impossible to learn the words to the verses) fit together seamlessly giving the music added depth. The mix of guitar and bass and electronic music is something that they did very well in the first album, and I think this song is a prime example of how in this genre the merging of the 2 styles of sounds should be done. The way the rythm of the song changes from the verse to chorus is also something I really like, keeping the song "fun" and not repetitive and boring as some song are.. The singing varies from rock singing, to very bouncy almost reciting of the lines to straight talking. Once again I feel they merge the different types together really well (aided by the perfect backing music for each moment) to really give a great alternation of styles/sounds through the song to keep in interesting all the way through. Overall, its a great showcase of the merging of different styles of singing and electronic/classic rock. With great sections to air guitar to, as well as parts truly great fun to sing to it makes the whole song a joy to listen to. I would give it a 9/10 and recommend everyone who likes rock music to listen ! Thanks for reading, feel free to leave feedback!
