Angels and Airwaves - It Hurts
Its been an interesting few months for Angels and Airwaves – the top ten success in the UK of the album and also the support slot with the Foo Fighters must have done much to lift the spirits of the former Blink 182 player and his bandmates. Shame then that this song is so weak, with its repetitive refrain and straight-forward direction that misses much of the good stuff shown on the LP.
There are no mysterious electronics and industrial drums here, just a basic guitar track and whiny vocals. The lyrics about war and UFO’s are replaced with drab prose about girlfriends and relationships. It mostly misses the mark, and sounds more like his own band than the future.
