Album Review: Softengine – We Created The World

Album Review

Band: Softengine
Album: We Created The World
Year: 2014

Softengine is a Finnish alternative rock band that represented Finland in the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark, with their song "Something Better". They released their debut album We Created the World in October 2014. 

They look like a boy band and these guys are all youngsters but this is a great debut album. Nearly every song is really good. It does lack a huge song that you can’t get out of your head but consistency counts too. The songs tend to build in complexity and intensity to a big chorus. Sound like something you might hear about The Killers, huh? Softengine compares to them or maybe 30 Seconds To Mars. The singer’s voice reminds me of Brendon Urie of Panic At The Disco! If you like those bands, surely you would like this.

Here is the list:
1.             Our New Age ★★
1.             This a whiny intro-song that is unnecessary.
2.             Broken Reflection ★★★
    1. This could be a Panic At The Disco! song
3.             Yellow House ★★★
    1. One of the singles
4.             Phone Call From Unknown ★★★
5.             The Sirens ★★★
6.             What If I? ★★
1.             Yeah, kinda whiny but it is ok
7.             Narcissus ★★★
8.             Something Better ★★★
    1. Probably the best song here
9.             In Disarray ★★★
10.          Circle ★★
11.          Our Life, Our Love ★★★
