Holy shit what a banger. The chorus sounds huge with those loud drums over almost garage/bluesy guitars.

The ultimate happy and nostalgic tune. Never fails to bring a smile to my face. The instrumental is well layered and the outro guitar is really good.

I was an instant fan of Cutthroat. That song bangs. Now Follow You has completely clicked for me too.

Imagine Dragons has uploaded a bunch of old songs and demos to their website that can be accessed using the password 'anagram'. OG fans may already know about these songs but it's good that the band acknowledged these and gave them some exposure. They also shared a free documentary about Making of Smoke + Mirrors which was pretty good.

1. All Eyes: This one is very catchy. Is actually from their second EP called Hell and Silence. I love the intro rap verse with the tongue twisters.

Mering writes about the calling power of love through ‘sincere looks’ and inner voices, always looking for something greater to show itself, which is where the album’s beauty comes from.

Though it loses a little sonic steam in its latter half, Titanic Rising is front-loaded by some simply amazing tracks.

I have no idea why the tag of 'worst artworks' is attached to this. It really fits the album perfectly.

SZA' voice over Ichiko Aoba-like production? Put me right in.

I can't stress enough how underrated Early Imagine Dragons are. This is probably their most rock leaning set of songs. Catchy melodies, sweet guitar licks can be found throughout this EP. Drive is a beautiful song and is a good change of pace from the rest of the songs.

I like the Hear Me version in this EP more. Anyway, it's yet another great EP like all of them made by Early Imagine Dragons. Hear Me, Emma, I Don't Mind, All Eyes all have amazing guitar work and have the perfect hooks that you can expect from this band.

This EP is long and good enough to become a full album on itself. This is such a great collection of
well written, hook-filled, anthemic songs.

Note: The River's intro is literally bliss.

Radioactive, Demons, It's Time, Round And Round, My Fault. So many great songs. Almost all of them were hits.

Each of these songs are brimming with emotional lyricism, catchy hooks and well made instrumentals.

A solid EP. Dan Reynolds has such a great knack of writing hits. Each of these songs are brimming with emotional lyricism, catchy hooks and well made instrumentals.

Most of these songs already appeared in a few older EPs. About the songs, yes they are all solid.
Round and Round, The River, America, Selene, My Fault are all amazing songs with nicely packed instrumentals and melodies.

This little set of acoustic songs show how good Imagine Dragons are as live performers. While Dan's voice can rip through a big stadium with the explosive choruses of his songs, he also has the charm to make these sweet acoustic cuts.

Night Visions was, and still is a massive record. It's built upon very pure emotions and a pretty clear mission statement. It has a strong conviction and, on top of that, loads of pop appeal. The album is probably best known for some of its singles: the sweet, uplifting anthem 'It's Time' was played nearly nonstop in its prime, it's dinky intro leading into a powerful track with a strong drive. There's also the classic 'Demons,' perhaps one of the weaker of the singles. It's weird kick drum ... read more

One of the big reasons for Imagine Dragons' success on their debut album was the inability to pin down the band as "one thing." And that range of styles continues on their sophomore release. If you were a fan of "It's Time," you've likely already gravitated toward the single "I Bet My Life." Meanwhile songs like "Trouble" and the galloping disc closer "The Fall" will also grab your attention for their full band folkiness. If you were drawn in by ... read more

For the band’s third studio album Evolve, Dan Reynolds and company continue to create rock ballads that somehow turn into radio hits. I think that notion occurs on this project more than the last one. Instead of raw instrumentals, Imagine Dragons uses electronics in a more tasteful manner, and they tweak their sound just a little bit more than usual on this record.

I enjoyed the way the album title described the band’s state in music right now. Much like any other artist, ... read more

Origins is a fantastic pop record yall are just mean. It took me some to grow though.

Barely a year after the release of their album Evolve, Imagine Dragons are back with the new record Origins. Recording an album with 15 songs in that short amount of time brings some risks. As we heard on the former albums, it seems like the only rule of the Las Vegas-based band is: there are no rules. They are mixing genres and experimenting with different styles and the result is the unique sound of Imagine ... read more

On Toasterqueen12's review of Imagine Dragons - It's Time
""Lately I've been fine, lately I've been lying" and you think oh hey that's a really clever line, and then they use it 8 more times" Literally wrong. None of the 8 songs have share the same lyrics or the same meanings. I actually don't know from where you pulled that one from. Tokyo's lyrics are nowhere near as problematic as El Scorcho. I don't understand the comparison. It's about a girl the lead singer met in Tokyo. Calling that asian fetishism is like...uh? Also The River sounds like Nickelback? That call was the most outrageous claim out of the many in this review. I would be surprised if Nickelback came up with anything close to something as beautiful as that song's intro. So yeah, this is nothing new. AOTY users will slap a poor score JUST because it's Imagine Dragons."
