Album Review: letlive. - The Blackest Beautiful

Author: Tori

There is no doubt that each song on The Blackest Beautiful will get your mind stirring. Today’s punk music is very repetitive and it seems like every band sounds the same; letlive. broke the mold and did something completely different from everyone else. If I had to describe letlive. in just a few words I’d say: brilliant, revolutionary, passionate, bold, unstoppable.

I was skeptical that letlive. would be able to top an album as influential and jaw-dropping as Fake History but from the moment I heard the first song, “Banshee (Ghost Fame)” I knew they had outdone themselves on The Blackest Beautiful. In comparison to Fake History, this album is more versatile; each song showcases a different style (they really switched it up on tracks like “Younger” and “That Fear Fever”) and they still managed to stay true to their signature soul punk genre from start to finish.

letlive. has always been a band with a purpose; not just to create assertive "soul punk" music but also to deliver an important message. Jason isn’t afraid to challenge the world around him and bring heated topics to light. The Blackest Beautiful is filled with passion and drive that very few current bands possess. Jason presents his thoughts in a way that conveys his own personal perspective while leaving it open for the listeners own interpretation. Their lyrics are so thought provoking and genuine; I wish bands were willing to express themselves as fearlessly and unapologetically as they do.

One of the most hard-hitting, quotable songs from this album is “White America’s Beautiful Black Market” where Jason repeats “they keep us sick so we can feel better” and he undoubtedly made a statement about today’s society and corporations. Another standout track is “Virgin Dirt”, the sound is haunting and chill inducing while the lyrics are clearly very personal to Jason. The only thing this album is lacking is a song like “Day 54” which is from their previous release “Fake History.” Although I wasn’t expecting them to recreate the same song, I was hoping for a track that would pack a punch in the same way that one did. It was straightforward and intense while the point they made through the lyrics was much needed.

Although I could rave about the brilliance of letlive’s music all day, nothing I say will truly do them justice. If you ask me, this is one of the best albums of the year. Please pick up a copy of their album The Blackest Beautiful on July 9th and see for yourself.
