While that song in particular probably doesn’t really convey what I’m trying to express well, I’m saying the overall work reminds me of “old rock.” Personally, I haven’t listened to a billion old rock albums, I’m talking about the ones I’m familiar with. If you’re thinking of Led Zeppelin, The Stones, or Guns N‘ Roses, you’re probably right. But the sound I’m comparing this to is specifically the later Beatles albums, some Queen, and The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust… etc.
Also, I find this album to share nothing in particular with the rest of pop at the moment, except maybe the piano chords on “Sign of The Times.” This sounds nothing like Bruno Mars, Dua Lipa, Taylor, or any other pop artist I can think of. And thank the Maker for that. I’m so tired of the same electronic sounds and trap hi-hats being played over and over, and going platinum. To me, this album felt like a breath of fresh air.
