Artist: Imagine Dragons
Song: My Life
Location: Las Vegas, United States
Release date: September, 2021.
Comment: I remember when Imagine Dragons used to be this alternative band few people knew about. It wasn’t that long ago. Then they hit it off at some point and became so successful that nowadays some people dismiss them for being too mainstream. In my opinion, that would be a mistake because they are actually quite good. For better or worse, they’re not afraid to experiment while they could just repeat the same song again and again and still sell million of records anyway. Their experiments don’t always work out but when they do, they strike gold. Case in point, I only liked two out of the 12 tracks in their new album, Mercury – Act 1, but one of them, My Life, is insanely good. Just listen to it and when you get to that instrumental bridge at 2:25 you’ll see what I mean. On top of it, the lyrics, that talk about mental health struggles, are outstanding as well.
Enjoy your Friday listening to this #musicalcrush.

Like Coldplay, Imagine Dragons have become a band many people disparage, but I love their music (except for ‘Thunder’, which is really annoying).
Yeah, I love both bands even though I dislike some of their songs. Btw, Coldplay’s live shows are something else. It’s a great experience.
Yes they are. I saw them on their Head Full of Dreams tour in 2016.
Me too! I saw them for the first time in 2009 (Viva La Vida) and thought the best live show experience ever. Then I saw them again in 2016 and they blew me away again. I hope I can see them again at some point just to see what new fancy trick they can come up with.
