The Neighbourhood are finally back. For those who don’t know The Neighbourhood, they are an Alt-Rock band. They aren’t just the typical alternative/rock band. What makes them interesting is that they mix all of those sounds with R&B & Hip-Hop, making it way more interesting. I’m a melody fiend and The Neighbourhood fully satisfies all of those needs. It’s been almost three full years since they released Sweater Weather, AKA my fall anthem for the past two years. Ever since I heard Sweater Weather, I had to check out the rest of their music. While their debut album, I Love You. was dark, about love lost, and personal battles that happen inside of your mind, Wiped Out! goes way beyond that. The ‘love’ songs on this album were a bit more about having issues and actually dealing with them. The previous album was more of pouring your feelings out and not knowing what happens next. I’m a sucker for good lyrics and this album is full of them. The first single R.I.P. to My Youth, is about the realization of having to grow up and willingly giving up your youth. The song also touches on the death of the lead singer’s late father, along with another song on the album called Daddy Issues. My favorite track is Wiped Out! it starts off as what seems to be cheery vocals and it takes a turn and progressively switches to Jesse’s signature rapping style. Then a guitar solo turns it upside down again and it’s back to the cheery beat and vocals. Overall the album is fantastic, although I must say that I may prefer their debut over this (I’ll have to give it a few more spins to actually decide). My favorites are Cry Baby, Daddy Issues, and the title track Wiped Out!
