Sharp turn away from what made them good

It breaks my heart when a band that i am into turns their sound into a cold-play rip off in an effort to make arena rock money. They've enlarged their sound to the detriment of the quality of the music. I'm not music savvy enough to know for sure, but it sounds like they might have used tons of synths on this one. There's just more of a "trying to stay current" electro sound. I'm also really not liking the vocals on this album. I don't know what's changed about it, but i kinda hate the singing on most of the tracks. Keep it simple or continue to lose my interest.

Excellent Album!!

Bronze Radio Return has done it again with their new album Light Me Up. Fans of their more traditional sound may need a few listens to truly appreciate the new direction that they are headed in. Believe me when I tell you, it is worth the trip. With Light Me Up, Bronze has joined the ranks of bands such as Arcade Fire, Arctic Monkeys, and Mumford & Sons as bands who refused to settle for a catalogue focused on the sound that made them popular and let their imaginations take them to a new, wonderful level. My wife and I had a chance to meet the band a few years back and they were some of the nicest, most genuine guys we've ever met. Good company indeed!

BRR knows how to Light Me Up!

It’s impossible to ignore the talent of Bronze Radio Return. With each successive album the band continues to grow in new directions while keeping the BRR sound at their core. “Light Me Up” builds upon the melodies and expert craftsmanship of “Up, On and Over” and the band has produced another set of songs you won’t be able to get out of your head. The title track is a bit of a departure for a band most known for their Americana roots, but it’s undeniably catchy and should be a deservingly big hit. “Light Me Up” also offers up a healthy serving of why most of us like the band. Songs like “Build a Stage,” “Before I Get There” and “Say Hello Sometime” all feel like they were cut from the same cloth as “Shake, Shake, Shake” and “Up On and Over.” Be sure to listen to the end as “Good Company” is one of the most beautiful songs you’ll ever hear. Well done Bronze Radio Return, well done indeed.
