Royal Blood - Typhoons

‘typhoons’ is very quality. it’s a slightly unwanted yet welcome change of pace from royal blood.

i enjoy the new direction that royal blood are taking. the group’s stellar instrumentation proves to be impressive as ever, and their craftsmanship is impassable.

side one was the warm up, its purpose to expose the audience to royal blood’s new visions and sound. side two is where ‘typhoons’ takes off. it casually goes off the rails while maintaining a neat clarity.

this album is more engaging, in a certain sense, than other royal blood records directly because of its pop style.

royal blood self-produce most of, if not all of, their third record ‘typhoons’.

after touring with queens of the stone age, royal blood seemed to have adapted to queens’ recent pop-rock-experimental sound. one can totally hear the similarities between royal blood and queens of the stone age on tracks like “limbo” (especially the beginning) and “all we have is now”.

meanwhile, tracks such as “boilermaker” and “who needs friends” demonstrate royal blood in their own element; the band is thriving with a new sense of purpose. their goals for the music seemed to have changed, and it’s interesting to hear these concepts.

notably, the album closer (on regular versions), “all we have is now”, is the softest song royal blood have ever put out. the song is amazing, and it’s totally worth checking out the piano part.
