Angels & Airwaves, 'Love: Part Two' (To the Stars)

5
Love: Part Two
Critical Mass
Release Date: November 8, 2011
Label: To the Stars

by Jon Young

Handsomely produced, energetically performed, and crushingly familiar, the latest epic from blink-182 vet Tom DeLonge's other band follows last year's free download Love with another blast of confident arena rock defined entirely by the broadest of gestures. Any distinction between "Dry Your Eyes" (which sneers, "Don't pretend to cry") and "The Revelator" (which offers moral support in hard times) is erased by the band's numbing grandiosity. Heard in small doses, though, DeLonge still knows how to sell a thrillingly catchy chorus, as "Surrender" and "One Last Thing" prove.
