A song created when Ryan Tedder decided that he didn’t want to pay for couples counseling
lol but all jokes aside this song is a straight banger
Track 2- Future Looks Good
That build up tho
This song’s melody is so good like dayum boiiii
Everybody says this song sounds like “Don’t You Worry Child” by Swedish House Mafia but I don’t hear it???
Track 3- Oh My My (Featuring Cassius)
Is this even OneRepublic?
This song makes me wish I knew how to play the bass guitar
Track 4- Kids
I swear I’ve heard this song before
This song sounds more like an EDM song than a OneRepublic song but I kinda dig it
Track 5- Dream
The bass riff at the beginning of this song is outstanding
I remember hearing Ryan Tedder talk about this song and saying that their goal was to make this more of a rock song than a “pop” song. They succeeded.
Track 6- Choke
I didn’t like this song at first but it really grew on me and now it’s one of my favorites on the album
I’m totally digging that choir in the chorus
Track 7- A.I. (Featuring Peter Gabriel)
This song is so weird…………… but I friggin love it
That drop 0.0
Track 8- Better
This song sounds like if Imagine Dragons and Twenty One Pilots did a collaboration
The lyrics of this song are a little too relatable tbh
The kids choir at the end gives me chills every time
Track 9- Born
This song’s beat is too dope
I got major nostalgia when they made that “Where the Wild Things Are” reference
Track 10- Fingertips
This song sounds like a lullaby
That part where the beat comes in is really cool in a way I can’t even explain
Track 11- Human
This song is so deep holy moly
I love this song because it makes God sound really sassy and it’s great
Track 12- Lift Me Up
This is one of the few songs where I can’t tell if the verses or the chorus is better
Also the bridge is really good
I guess this whole song is just really good
Track 13- NbHD (Featuring Santigold)
Why isn’t this song just called “Neighborhood”?
This song gets so much more meaning when you realize it’s technically written from the point of view of a refugee
Track 14- Wherever I Go
This song is a complete banger. That’s all.
Track 15- All These Things
This is one of those songs that you skip a lot but it’s actually pretty good but you just never realized it
Not sure why but I really like that “ts” sound that is repeated throughout the song
Track 16- Heaven
I LOVE THIS SONG
This song’s melody is so beautiful I can’t even stand it
Not to mention the lyrics oml
AND THAT DROP THO
10/10 would recommend this song
OneRepublic was definitely experimenting with this album and did many things that I never expected from them, but unlike many other bands, just about everything they did worked for me. I’ve seen so many bands branch out and try something new but they totally failed and lost their identity. Some may argue that this is the case for OneRepublic with not only this album, but their last album “Native”, but I don’t think so. Although they have incorporated many new themes into their music and have a lot more of a poppy vibe, to me this still sounds like the OneRepublic I’ve always loved.
vice quadrant lyrics, slapped on crappily drawn mspaint spacescapes! did every song except 10 because i got frustrated after doing so many, lmao. y’all say something if you’d like to see the rest, cause i’ll totally do them. also if you reblog or w/e say which one is your favorite because i’m curious :O
i think i’ll do this with the rest of the albums (not spacescapes though, like a different theme for each album? hmm. and i’ll draw them better.) if anyone wants to see a specific album done like this pls tell me and i will oblige!
