Angels & Airwaves

I picked up this CD today, I've been looking forward to it for a few months now.

It's Tom DeLonge (Blink 182) new band from members of GodSmack, Boxcar Racer among others...

The album is "We Don't Need To Whipser" and while it might be too sappy with the power ballads to some I find it very refreshing. Most noteworthy are tracks 1 (Valkyrie Missle) 4 (The Adventure) 7 (The Gift) and 8 (It Hurts). The album really sounds like The Cure mixed with u2 and Blink 182. The recording is actually of very high quality. The depth in sound stage is deeper then most rock albums and the bass is tight and firm. You'll be tapping your toes.
we'll have to agree to disagree on the merits of this one...
I just saw them at the 930 Club in DC Sunday Night. Delonge was great.. Enjoyed the tunes.. Picking up the album today..

Let me know what you think Chris,

regardless of liking the music or not I think you'll find the quality of recording very much above par.
It is a very enjoyable album. I mean it does sound very 1988 but I am child of the 80's so I kinda dig it. The recording is also decent. Definitely not up to the Hype of the pre-release but very enjoyable..
