Quick one today, my power could go out any minute now. Yay!
Let's just post something to feel badass with, a song called In the City. If you've heard Rudolf before and weren't impressed, don't immediately discard this song. Sure, it's not the most musically impressive song in the world, but it sure does have a catchy riff and would work excellently in some big Hollywood action scene.
Or you could just put it on in your digital music player of choice and walk down a city without strutting. I dare you not to strut. I dare you.
All it is is catchy riffs. If they don't captivate you I honestly don't blame you, I've heard better too. It doesn't stop me from enjoying it on occasion. A guilty pleasure when compared to the rest of the Rock I listen to.
This album (which happens to also be named In the City) is not my cup of tea. I tried it a long time ago, I tried it recently, I just can't listen to it through and enjoy it. Having it start with In the City was the best thing he did as it made me curious for what was in store, however the rest of the album was something different, it was what he was aiming for.
If you like yourself a balanced blend of Pop, Rock and Hip-Hop, you will probably like this album. If you like the fact that Rudolf's guitar work and voice accompany the likes of Lil Wayne, Nas and Rick Ross, you will probably like this album.
If it's not for you, I get you. It's not for me either.
