It has to be said, I've grown a little partial to the band 30 Seconds to Mars. It's not something I'm ashamed of, but equally not something I will be shouting from the rooftops. If, after this revelation, you doubt my sanity and musical taste, before you judge, you must check out their collection of hits they're racking up. Their current single, This is War, is the latest song from the band to catch my attention. And it's 30 Seconds to Mars doing what they do best.

Off the back of the 2005 album A beautiful Lie, the band re-released The Kill (Bury Me) in 2007. I remember really enjoying this single in the summer of that year.

Fast forward 2 years and the band released their third album This is War, and off it came the singles Kings & Queens and the title track This is War. Kings & Queens was a single that grabbed my attention upon first listen and I must say this is a common trait of their music. It's not often I can say I'm instantly attracted to a song on first listen, but 30 Seconds to Mars seems to have cracked the formula for producing an instantly-likeable piece of music. Of course they've managed to achieve this by consistently adhering to the anthemic cheesy pop-rock balled formula; something which I've embarrassingly acquired a liking to.

But it could be worse. It could be Glee. Wait, I LIKE GLEE. Oh dear. I feel I should probably stop divulging embarrassing revelations about my music tastes. However, if you think you may be in the same boat as me, check out 30 Seconds to Mars. What have you got to loose? ;)
