Hello, Zedd Wiki!
As of the time I'm writing this, True Colors is only a few hours away from being released (unless you pre-ordered it via iTunes, in which case you should already have all the songs). For those of you who chose to buy it and have heard it already (and for those of you who will wake up tomorrow or a few days from now and listen to it)...what do you think about it? Is it better than Clarity? Worse? About the same? Share your thoughts below!
If you're feeling like giving it a star rating, see here.
Loved the whole album. Quite different than Clarity, but it doesn't mean is not good. My top 5 songs are:
Beautiful Now: Everything about this song is perfect. Jon Bellion's collaboration, the lyrics, and the most important, the beat break.
Transmission: If we take out Beautiful Now, this would be my favorite song off the album. Logic's verse sounds awesome, and the hook by X Ambassadors kills me.
Papercut: Although the song is pretty long, it's such a masterpiece. Troye's vocals are on point, and the beat is simply perfect.
Illusion: Even though the beat doesn't kills me, I've got to say that the song is amazing. Sydney sounds beautiful.
Daisy: This one was really good. Violins mixed with a catchy beat and a singer out of this world. Loved the backing vocals too.
Think I'm going to edit this a lot :P
Great job Anton!
Around two and a half years after the release of Clarity, Zedd finally decided to surprise us with his second album, True Colors. For almost a month, I'd waited with much anticipation for its release…and I am very pleased to say that—in my opinion, at least—it was worth the wait. ^_^ (Of course, no album is perfect, though. :P )
My thoughts on each song:
And that's it. ^_^
Comments: On the KCC scale from 1-10, Clarity was a 7.5, meaning that I find True Colors to be better than its predecessor. Congrats, Zedd! :D
Going from the best in album to okay (because none of these were bad, so there's no 'worst' either), here are my thoughts of True Colors Album:
Papercut: I gotta agree, this is THE BEST track in the album. Deep, emotionally progressive, smooth vocals, and beautiful melody.
True Colors: This is the song which lyrics I can relate to very much, and really portrays the emotion it potentially can.
Addicted to a Memory: Most people don't like Zedd's electronic side, and this song suffers that judgement. To me, this song is brilliant in every way. The vocals, the complex melody, even the artwork! XD
Daisy: I really like this song because it's like a character reference; her hobbies, her personality, even her past. The lyrics took a nice turn there, if you know what I mean. So, it's not like a regular pick-up song for someone you just fell for; it's a pick-up song for someone you are really know/close to AND fell for.
Done With Love: Emotionally, this is like the continuation of Daisy. And it drops hard, too!
Beautiful Now: I've never listen to a song that give me extreme chills when a crowd of people who love this song suddenly sing in unison in TCT more than this. Not Spectrum, not Clarity, this. And it gets better with the “underwater feeling” in the second verse.
Bumble Bee: Just like Addicted to a Memory, this song is dissed because of the electronic style. To me, the drop is insane; like Botnek said, the drop makes you feel 'swarmed by bees'.
Transmission: The instrumental is great, and with Logic's raps, this song becomes bad*ss.
Straight Into The Fire: What makes this track great is that this song's key makes it able to blend in with Zedd's 2 popular songs, Spectrum and Find You. I think the emotional depth, instrumental-wise, CAN go even further. Weird enough, I find the ending is the most interesting part in the song because the melody makes it feels like all your pain and poblems are gone, but the lyrics makes it like it doesn't end there.
I Want You To Know: Like KCCreations said, this song is lack of emotional depth. Even though lyric-wise it is deep, it's not as deep as the others. I still enjoy it anyway, though.
(I think if the numbering of the songs is emotionally right, this whole album CAN, in fact, be a short romance novel.)
