Amoeba Review

04/29/2013

The Airborne Toxic Event continue to make unabashedly stratospheric rock ’n’ roll on their third album, Such Hot Blood. Like their brethren in The Killers, The Airborne Toxic Event make no attempts to hide their Bruce Springsteen-inspired, stadium-bound ambitions, and thus their music is allowed to be as grandiose as possible, which is not to say it’s without nuance. Sure, “Safe” has U2-sized grandeur on its mind, but it gets there via traded-off male/female verses, chugging acoustic guitars and looping, slowly building violins before achieving that climactic chorus four minutes in. “The Storm” allows frontman Mikel Jollett to really belt over a stately arrangement, displaying an ability to appeal to fans of emotional acoustic-rock bands like Mumford & Sons. “The Secret,” meanwhile, makes its choral hook the main attraction, even as Jollett tears apart his voice to get there. They’ve got stars in their eyes, but you couldn’t accuse The Airborne Toxic Event of not putting their hearts on the line on the impactful Such Hot Blood.
