You awoke and unleashed the fire in my heart I will dance and I’ll defeat them through the light and the dark Your mistake was to underestimate my power Won’t let go of the fight, ‘till Tomorrow Is Mine
I will ignite, dancin’ through the fire around me, I’ll never stop You’d better hide now I’m in the mood for a fight! You won’t know what hit you when I spin around with you in my dust bin Bang-bang, down-down! Yeah, it’s my desire, you’re going for the win Tomorrow Is Mine!
You better run, don’t wait here I’ll come, no The fuel in my fire won’t run dry, it burns bright And you better hide, I came for a fight, yeah. Until Tomorrow Is Mine (Don’t miss me too much)
Due to his recent appearance on Conan, I figured I would catch myself up on what Way has done since the disbanding of his previous band. Hesitant Alien is an interesting album because of all the mixed feelings I have towards it, loving the prominent guitars but missing some of the stronger vocal pieces he has done in the past. It’s a very strong solo debut, oozing with this style that I didn’t know I wanted and showing how interested he is in being a separate entity from MCR, yet I found myself taking far too many issues with it.
The prominent guitars are fantastic but are far too layered, introducing an ironic situation where the heavy focus on the guitar ends up making it all kind of moot. The lyrics and song stylings are far more chipper than I would’ve expected but the middle part of the album tries too hard to contrast with muddled, flat-key mumblings. Funny enough I started this album thinking it would be a surefire purchase but it pushed me out of its world too quickly and for too long that now it’s in heavy doubt. The last two tracks end off the album nicely, the finale probably being the cleanest sounding track of the bunch, but it lacks the punch the record started with.
In short, there are a handful of tracks that stand out as songs I wouldn’t mind listening to on my morning walk or a road trip but the entire package is kind of muddy. Considering how this is Way’s first solo work, his first work since MCR split, and that he was clearly trying to mix styles, this rough piece is a valiant effort. The biggest thing that upsets me about this album is that it is coming from him after the height of his popularity and as a solo artist; I can really see something like this turning heads with a little more polish and a band behind him.
i cant believe this. i cant fucking believe this. i meant to send this to my boyfriend but instead i sent it to my boss right after i told her i was quitting all i wanted to do was make an inappropriate cookie joke but no i got mixed up texting two people at once and literally sent a picture of a chocolate chip cookie captioned “ooh she thique” to the fifty year old suburban mother of two of whom i have nothing but a strictly professional relationship with. after knowing me for almost a year and a half as a hard working and respectable employee this is the last thing i will ever say to her i can never go back to that shop again all because of this god damn cookie blunder What have i Done
