I FINALLY could get the new Midnight Juggernauts album, ha ha!! And I was so lucky because even though I got it two months after its release, the shop had limited and signed editions, yeah!

I really liked the first single This New Technology, but I was rather disappointed by the second one, Vital Signs. And actually, I really liked the album, the first time I listened to it.
The 3 Aussies have kept in line with the previous album, it's rock with a space disco flavour. The first half of the album is really good, the second one, less. Many fans seem to say they have taken too different a direction. I don't think so, not at all actually. Their sound got more perfect. As a result, it may be less... fanciful, let's say. But it's still good.
The song The Great Beyond deserves its name given how high they go in it. Lifeblood Flow, Lara Versus The Savage Pack are very punchy. Regarding The Final Goodbye, I just regret it's not a bit longer, and I hope it's not self-fulfilling.
The lyrics tend to be different from the previous album, Dystopia, as they speak less about galaxies and stars, and more about life itself. You know, when you're a fan, they can talk any bollocks, you're still gonna like it and be much more merciful than with others. For example, when Ke$ha talks about love, I don't buy it, I think it's easy, silly and/or hypocritical and I hate it, but when it's Midnight Juggernauts, then I'm all like... sweet like honey. The chorus of Vital Signs is:
You've got to open up your mind and feel the love in your life
You've got to open up your heart and feel the love in your life
And, yeah, I totally understand what they mean.
I really like these ones from Lara Versus The Savage Pack, I was repeating myself this kind of stuff when I was travelling around South America:
Keep on building
Chasing that feeling
If we make it out of here alive
We'll get through anything
