Imagine Dragons: Origins Album Review

600x600bf

Origins is an album from the popular band Imagine Dragons and was released on November 9th, 2018.

This review will be split into individual song reviews, until I finally get to the overall score.

Did I like this album? Did I not? This is my review of Origins by Imagine Dragons.

Natural: I thought this song was just okay. Yes, it’s catchy, but that doesn’t excuse the annoying chorus consisting of lead singer Dan Reynolds screaming about how you’re a natural for a short period of time. 5/10

Boomerang: This song was all over the place. At some points you can’t tell if it’s a love song or a rock song. That’s really all I can say about this song. 3/10

Machine: This is, in my opinion, the worst song off the album. It’s messy, melodramatic, and isn’t helped by the fact the song is just annoying. 2/10

Cool Out:  This song is actually pretty good. It has a wavy vibe and doesn’t feature Dan Reynolds screaming for the chorus. 8/10

Bad Liar: This one is just weird. It doesn’t make your ears almost implode like some of the last ones did, but it feels a bit messy.  Still, it’s not horrible. 5/10

West Coast: This song is much more light-hearted than most of this album. Is it great? No. But I can appreciate how this one was a change of pace. 5/10

Zero: This one is pretty snappy and fun, but it isn’t quite the home run I was hoping for. 6/10

Bullet In a Gun: Just like Boomerang, this one is all over the place. But just like Natural, it’s still pretty catchy. 5/10

Digital: I do not recommend listening to this song if you have sensitive hearing. This song consists of about 60% screaming. 3/10

Only: This song feels like if Hey There Deliah and Something Just Like This had a baby. Let’s just say it was their first and only child. 3/10

Stuck: This feels like just another love song with nothing special. 4/10

Love: Since when was repeatedly saying “love” a good chorus? 3/10

Summary: Origins by Imagine Dragons is a reminder of how low we can go when it comes to mainstream music. Cliched, repetitive, and loud, I don’t think I’ll be coming back to this album anytime soon. 4/10

One thought on “Imagine Dragons: Origins Album Review

  1. I think that this was a good album. I don’t like Cool Out, West Coast, Only, or Love but I like the rest. Evolve was much better though. But maybe it’s just because I went to an Imagine Dragons concert last summer.
    They used to be my favorite band but now I like more Weezer, AC/DC, and Twenty One Pilots. I’m sick of the repeating in all of the songs in this album. I don’t like how they’re now becoming pop music. But I still love Imagine Dragons.
