On the British band’s debut album, Bastille hits every emotion with deep lyrics that will have you questioning yourself. Though, each song has its own upbeat energy that keeps you dancing.
With every song, there is a deep meaning that will sometimes leave you lost and yearning for a connection with another person before it’s too late. And with this, the band proves how lyrically strong they are. However, when the lyrics are mixed with the music, the true meaning of the song feels lost. Unless you are reading the lyrics, there’s a loss of that relationship with the music.
A later single that catapulted the band to stardom, “Pompeii” is among the best on the album. The song captures what it feels like to have everything crumbling around you.
Final say: Strong effort but disjointed. ★★★☆☆
