Album Review: Imagine Dragons - Smoke + Mirrors (Score: 7/10)

ImagineDragonsAlbumArtworkSmoke + Mirrors, the second studio release for alternative rock band Imagine Dragons, is a solid venture into a fusion of several rock subgenres. Spanning indie, southern and industrial rock, the Las Vegas-based band do what they do best: create big rock anthems perfect for radio play. However, some of the tracks are so demanding of attention that the songs that follow become overshadowed. Standouts “I’m So Sorry,” “I Bet My Life” and “Trouble” will certainly find themselves as favorites among both new and old fans, and hopefully be released as singles. – Victoria Patneaude
