Australian band The Cat Empire’s most recent album, Cinema, is their first studio album since So Many Nights in 2007 and is well worth a listen.
The band explores a slightly different genre in this album than in their previous releases; I would classify the band’s new songs as ‘alternative’, however they have possibly delved a bit further into rock in this album.
The singles distributed by the band before the album itself was released, while very good, are surpassed in quality by other songs in the album. For me, the stand-out song is All Hell, which draws you in with an exciting introduction which continues as an underlying rhythm throughout the song.
Cinema is a great album both for fans and those new to the Empire.
