Is this album essentially just a scrapped album that’s finally being released? A compilation of material that didn’t make Human and instead of letting it waste they figured they’d get something from it? Like I’m glad these songs are seeing the light of day but if it’s all stuff from 2017 and before it kinda feels confusing why it wasn’t just released back then when they had essentially a local repeak with IMB and lots of televised promo.

Some of the stuff is from before 2017 (Sugar Daddy, 101, Godzilla) but some of it is more recent I believe. BlackoutZone would be able to tell you which ones are newer.

 

I believe they were having some label issues unfortunately (don’t they always) that contributed to them not releasing a full fledged album, but yeah it would have made so much more sense to just release a record back when IMB was smashing in Australia. Alas, at least we get two now.

Do we have anymore Life On Mars leftovers that fans would still want or they could give us?

1 Godzilla - Really sticks out from the rest of the album 7/10  
2 Kaleidoscope - Love the sorta spoken vocals, but with the production it feels a bit off 6/10
3 In My Blood - immaculate and timeless 10/10
4 In It to Win It - so short and yet feels too long, a mess 2/10
5 High Score - Immediate love from the production, then verses felt off intially, once used to it my favourite of the new tracks! Stranger Things 80s Vibes 10/10
6 Stealing Cars - continuation of 80s vibe from High Score, melody is great but i wish the song was different 8/10
7 Supernatural Girl - I'm now more hyped about song title itself than the song 6/10
8 101 - There is slight changes to the mixing, somehow less punchy then than leaked version? Added minor elements towards the end. Glad we have it in HD 8/10  
9 Catch Fire - makings of a haunting ballad, could be in a sound track 8/10
10 Silent - a haunting ballad into a crescedo! This is what I expected and wanted from the girls 10/10

11 The Only High - Nice 8/10

12 Sugar Daddy - immaculate and timeless 10/10

Justice for Alive

I was so in love with their first two albums but self-titled and Godzilla are not it. (Both have great moments!)

Kind of frustrating tbh. I just know, that they still have the talent to deliver. 

 

Silent is great but as a whole this album is all over the place and just not good enough. 

The Secret Life Of and Hook Me Up are so cohesive and I miss that.
