Imagine Dragons are one of the most successful recent pop/rock acts. I downloaded “It’s Time” because it made somebody “Best of 2012” list. It sounded very familiar when I first listened to it and I realized one of my improv groups has been using it as our entrance song for several months.
Its a big, lush song that grabs you with its barbed claws and forces you to listen to it. I suspect the lyrics are supposed to be inspiring in some way shape or form, but this is a flawless victory for style over content so you’d be forgiven for not having the slightest idea what the fuck the singer is on about. Just clap or stomp or even sing along. Its all right if you feel a little ashamed after. Doing stuff you shouldn’t just because it feels good is supposed to make you a little ashamed.
