30 Seconds To Mars – A Beautiful Lie – CD
(Virgin Records) This is the second release by actor Jared Leto‘s band, and unlike other bands that include a popular actor, this is a real band (Dogstar I’m looking at you). 30 Seconds To Mars is a better than average rock band with an industrial slant. However, the lyrics seem a bit trite and the music is a bit too clean for the look and style they’re trying. My favorite song on the disc is “The Fantasy”, which is nicely done and a step above the other tunes. I think this is better than a majority of the crap that gets released out there and since it features an actor I really like, I give it a few bonus points.
