Hollywood Undead, the rap-rock band from Los Angeles, recently released their fourth studio album, Day of The Dead. With the release of 6 singles, after the album had been set to come out in October 2014. The deadline had been pushed back till March 31st 2015, which you'd figure give them at least 4 months to fine-tune the album. This apparently is not what they did.
Looking at the first song "Usual Suspects", it's clear they spent more time mixing the beats for the album then writing lyrics. The lyrics are immature and forgettable. You'll find yourself focusing more on the music behind the lyrics then anything else. Diving deeper into this album doesn't offer much.
The only acceptable song is the song sharing the name of the album, "Day Of The Dead". It sounds like a typical anthem of teenager rebellion and shares some influences of Korn's "Path Of Totality". The 9th song on the album "Disease" starts out with the same beat as Kayne West's song "Black Skinhead" and it goes on and on from there. Some tracks on the album don't even fit into their normal style and seem to be there to just be joke songs.
Hollywood Undead hasn't changed much from their last album. There's no groundbreaking songs or anything worth noting. Even the 3 songs in the deluxe edition don't show any change. The only people who might enjoy this album to the fullest are fans of trap-rap or of their of other 3 previously released albums. It seems that this album might just be good if you want to zone out and take in background music.
Final Review: 5 out of 10 stars.
