Foster The People, Torches
Key Track: “Don’t Stop (Color On The Walls)” is the LP’s brash and bratty rock jam.
Key Track: “Heavy Metal Lover”, which isn’t one bit heavy metal, captures Gaga’s inner nightclub maven.
Key Track: “End Of Time” is fun and dancy, and evokes the drumline excitement of Destiny’s Child’s “Lose My Breath”.
Key Track: Electro-pop perfection is achieved on “Losing Myself”.
Key Track: “Wolf And I”, an unforgettable melodic fable about star-crossed love.
Key Track: Gospel-inspired tune “Take It All” will never get the non-stop airplay of “Rolling In The Deep” or “Someone Like You”, and that’s a shame.
Key Track: There really isn’t a song to be skipped here, but one particular highlight is the forlorn “Wonders”.
Key Track: “Run Dry (x heart x fingers)”, an ode to imbibing and letting yourself make mistakes.
Key Track: “Smoke” (performed live with the Western Australian Symphony) in a word: unreal.
Key Track: Dubstep-riddled lead single “Hold It Against Me”.
