I spoke too soon when I said that there weren’t any single-worthy songs on Angels and Airwaves’ Love. It took the music video for “Hallucinations” to show me that. It’s nothing more than a collection of performance shots and clips of the guys standing around, but the production gives it a alluring, cinematic quality that keeps you watching. I hope that this spells good things for the film the band plans to release later this year to accompany the album. The song itself is filled with the atmospheric build-ups and catchy rock chorus you’ll find in much of AVA’s work, although Atom Willard’s drumwork during the outro gives “Hallucinations” a nice unexpected flair. I have the feeling I’ll keep finding more reasons to like this album.
Don’t forget that you can download Love for free from the band’s website.
