An Album Review of ‘I’m a UFO in This City’ by ‘Lost-Alone’
Let us get the basic details out. ‘I’m a UFO in This City’ by ‘Lost-Alone’ is going to be released on the 5th of March this year. It is produced by the trio of Gerard Way, Jackknife Lee and Greg Wells. It has to benefit from the expertise of the Graphite record label in terms of dealing with similar marketing projects. The reviews have been very enthusiastic and it is probably a good time to try out the music.
The overriding impression that you get from ‘I’m a UFO in This City’ is that of joy and entertainment. In some reviews they have been compared to the legendary British bands including Queen. The music is bold and courageous without becoming irritating. They have handled their instruments well and seem to understand the value of harmony in terms of keeping the attention of the audience focused on the task at hand. They are fully committed to giving everything to the audience that you sometimes wonder whether the group will be able to sustain a long career at this rate. The brightest stars are often snuffed out before their prime. Hopefully we are going to have a real exception in this case.
There is something rather cocky about ‘I’m a UFO in this City’. This is an opportunity for the equivalent of bravura performances. They are essentially showing that they can accomplish all the challenge of the music without losing its meaning. The ballads are not meaningless opportunities for saccharine pop but rather little gems that promote the narrative in specific ways. It would be totally inaccurate to describe this group as being ordinary and the review takes note of the fact that the audience is in agreement with the opinions that have been provided.
It is very hard to get an album where every single is moving. This is the exception in ‘I’m a UFO in This City’ by ‘Lost-Alone’. They have paid equal attention to the pieces and the outcomes are absolutely amazing. It has every chance to become a classic as long as they do not over-promote it.
This is as close as you get to perfection in an album. The music and its delivery are of the highest order. You need to move on because there is nothing we can complain about.
