An Enjoyable Rush | Posted May 18, 2017
Electronic music is radio's sound of choice these days, and more and more bands are getting in on the action. We Are Leo wades headfirst into the electronic pop waters with The Rush and the Roar, an album full of songs to get you moving. 

Opening track "Dimensions" is a good choice to open the project, serving as one of the album's most memorable cuts with a chorus that sticks in your brain and beats that can cure even the most insistent cases of inactivity. "Astronaut" continues the momentum and offers the same benefits to make the album's start a one-two punch. The album sounds lush from start to finish, and you can feel a lively energy radiating off each track. The songs call to mind just a bit of old Hawk Nelson or Relient K. 

Fans of electronic pop will be satisfied. Those who aren't diehards of the genre may wish the music felt a little more organic. The melodies are strong, but sometimes get a bit overwhelmed and lose their musical identity beneath the production level. 

Lyrically, the band juggles the fun and the spiritual, making for an album happy to be a lighthearted escape from the weight of life. Songs like "Salt Life" and "Shine Forever" are infectiously joyful in their execution. It's hard not to like something that wears a happy heart so proudly.

The Bottom Line: Musical safety and a bit of an over-reliance on electronic production doesn't dampen an album that's likable and exuberant, making The Rush and the Roar a great summer listen.
