I think Strange Desire is a solid album but its standout tracks like I Wanna Get Better and Rollercoaster were, in fact, singles that Bleachers had released to hype up the release of their debut album. Thankfully, Strange Desire does have some redeemable qualities that make up for the album being, in my opinion, heavily over-hyped. Overall, Strange Desire is a solid album with enough decent songs on it to be a good debut album for Bleachers but the song set beings to fade rather quickly after several listens and besides a couple stand out songs is forgettable.
The debut album from the pop-rock band Bleachers earned the new band plenty of attention, with the two popular songs "Rollercoaster" and "I The debut album from the pop-rock band Bleachers earned the new band plenty of attention, with the two popular songs "Rollercoaster" and "I Wana Get Better.
The album has two guest artist appearances - two more than Gone Now. Most of the music on this album sounds good, but not terribly original or creative.
Also, the production on this album sounds much less polished as the music on Bleachers' sophomore album. The biggest example of the occasionally unpolished, undercooked music on this album would be "Shadow," which has weird, offbeat music during the choruses. The last two songs have varied, slightly experimental music that really stands out, highlighting Jack's creativity.
The last song is really good, while "Reprise" falls a little short. Lyrically, Strange Desire isn't great. Most of the lyrics are about teenage love, and the problems and drama resulting from it. The lyrics are not terribly original or insightful; tired, but not entirely true. Most of the lyrics on this album are meant to be fun-loving and carefree, so I can't bash the lyrics too hard.
Bleachers' debut album has a solid amount of fun, enjoyable content, but also leaves plenty to be DESIRED, in terms of music and lyrics. Jack shows potential on this album, but really delivers on his second album. Essential Links. Current Music Releases Full List ». By Metascore By user score. All Current Music ».
