The last song I'll talk about is my favorite of the album so far, "Thousand Eyes". This one definitely starts off with the darker feel, almost haunting in the bareness of the beginning. The slow build in this song is incredible; it's past the two minute mark before the drums and guitars really start to kick in. When they do, however, the vocals fade out, and the way that the instruments erriely climb higher and higher is enough to give you chills. The height of the track is absolutely incredible; it's such a massive sound, it's almost hard to believe. The song doesn't follow a traditional structure of verse chorus etc, but instead has two parts; the vocals, and then the instruments. All together, it creates a piece that you would be hard to match. It reflects a soundtrack feel, especially in the build, and I would be surprised if it didn't end up in a movie or a trailer for one.
Overall, I was thoroughly impressed by the sophomore effort from Of Monsters and Men. It's different from their debut album, but that's good; too many bands get trapped in their own sound. They retained their core feel, but expanded to new territories.
