This is my Pop Evil Music Review
Pop Evil’s new music, UP, is one of their best so far. They have some really great songs like Footsteps, My Confessions (Bonus Track), and Dead in the Water. From upbeat to hard metal; from sexy to soulful, this album takes the listener on a ride of a wide variety of emotions and moods.
I started listening to Pop Evil at the recommendation of a friend several years ago and I have become a big fan of their music. If you aren’t familiar with them and love hard rock music, give them a listen. They have many other awesome songs like:
Somebody Like You
Last Man Standing
Monster You Made
Good with the Bad
Goodbye My Friend
Sick Sense (This is a list of my favorites throughout the years)
Their latest Album, UP, was released just last month and I honestly love every single song on it. While I would love to talk about every single song, I am going to only talk about a few of my favorites. One of my favorites is Ghost of Muskegon. This song is about finding oneself lost and misguided. With lyrics like, “Lost, still I’m searching, Seek for the truth that will keep me together I drift, through the ether”, feeling invisible to the world and to yourself can lead one to disillusionment and sorrow.
Another great song on the album is If Only For Now and what I take away from it is a sort of love song but about living in the moment because, as the song says, “Cause we know the world won’t ever slow down.” Often times we lose sight of precious moments that mean so much because our lives are moving so fast these days. In this song Pop Evil says, Let’s take the time to slow down a bit and revel in the beauty that surrounds us.
Way To Get High is an upbeat song that is about the many ways to get high but doesn’t specifically talk about drugs (though you can certainly take it that way if you want). Getting high can mean any number of things from actual drugs or just living life, to seeking adrenaline in sports, love, etc; this song has a great beat to it that makes me just want to dance, which always puts me in a great mood.
My Confessions is a bonus track that is essentially, a break up song. Pop Evil writes such great songs but this one is one of my top five. I really like this song because well, read the lyrics and judge for yourself:
The last song I am going to talk about is my favorite in the whole track. It was the first song they released and it is such a positive song to listen to: Footsteps. I adore this song because it is about climbing out of darkness and turning your negative past into a much positive future. That is where I am at in my life right now. I have struggled with darkness and have fought my way out.
Now I’m focused on living positive and being happy. My negative past will always be there. However, it doesn’t have to define me and I choose to NOT let it run the rest of my life. To end this review, here is the awesome video that is one of my all time favorites.
