Valleyheart by She Wants Revenge
Released May 24th 2011, let’s get one thing straight, this is She Wants Revenge, but it isn’t the SWR you may remember. They added a few instruments to their arsenal and a little change in the vocals. Vocals are still headed up by frontman Justin Warfield, yet to me, he sounds a little different. This album is full of everything you’d expect from SWR, high school prom, break ups, first loves…the list goes on. I feel that’s what draws me to SWR so much are the lyrics and deep beats. This album still brings those strong lyrics but trades the deep darker beats for a happier, poppier 80’s sound. I hear a heavily influence from Depeche Mode (naturally) but now I even hear a hint of an 80’s U2.
This album isn’t their most artistic album, nor is it my favorite, but I like what they brought in Valleyheart. If you don’t pick up this album (I still suggest you do), please at least download “Little Stars”. “Little Stars” sends goosebumps all over my body, it has easy powerful lyrics with great riffs and the deep dark beats you expect from past SWR albums. Buy the album, check out the album art, which has great photo’s of a hollywood landscape at dusk as a bonus. Beautiful.
