Thirty Seconds To Mars a band that has long boxed with overblown pretentiousness. Listening to their new album Love, Lust, Faith And Dreams, two things become clear. One, the only entertaining part of this travesty is picking apart its pretention. Two, Thirty Seconds To Mars have zero understanding how pompous they come across.
No less staggering than Mount Rushmore or what lies at the deepest parts of the ocean is how Thirty Seconds To Mars are on their fourth album and that two of those records have gone platinum. Seriously? Are there that many My So Called Life fans out there desperate to keep their dreams of dating Jordan Catalano alive? Regardless, the pretention that has mounted through three records comes to full realization on Love, Lust Faith And Dreams.
