Album Review: Madness


Most people out there will agree that Sleeping with Sirens’ last studio album, “Feel” was a flop. As the release of “Madness” grew nearer, even my own skepticism rose.
However, the group’s release is, in my opinion, a success! While many of us were waiting on the up-beat power anthems that Sleeping with Sirens has delivered us before a la  If You Can’t Hang,  what Madness provides is just as good.
While not too lyrically complex, “Kick me” has a very fun and empowering energy to it, making it an instant crowd pleaser. Front man Kellin Quinn is able to show off his impressive vocal range in the more subdued ballad “November”.
Yet another lighter selection is the song “The Strays” which provides an uplifting beat as well as an insightful message to listeners- to be who you are no matter what other people see in you.

Overall, I think the effort put into this album is very clear, as well as shows the world what the “real” Sleeping with Sirens is all about. The band is back on track and better than ever and I cannot wait to see what they have in store for us in 2015.
