    5 Seconds of Summer Youngblood - Deluxe Edition CD          Review of 5 Seconds Of Summer - Youngblood by Thomas Bleach   Australian four-piece 5 Seconds Of Summer have really proved themselves with the release of their third studio album. Youngblood hears them striving towards a bolder and more mature sound that channels 80s synth rock. This record is full of personality, emotion and groove and it couldn't be a better re-introduction to this band. Forget what you already know about 5SOS because this record is nothing like they have ever released before. There are only a couple of songs that even come close to the try hard angsty pop-rock their previous two albums tried to create. The opening title track oozes pulsating synths and drums and introduces this chaotic but experimental synth sound. The honest track looks at a relationship where theyve reached breaking point and they push each other away but its still so confusing saying goodbye as there are still strong feelings involved. The rest of the album follows lead with the groovy Want You Back, the Twenty One Pilots inspired Valentine and the absolutely 80s inspired Talk Fast. Its bold, different and will have you constantly wondering what they are going to do next. Moving Along returns to their rock roots with an injection of indie-pop which polishes it up and will be instantly stuck in your head. But expect a couple of slower tracks like Lie To Me, Why Wont You Love Me and Better Man which aim to swoon you but still give you a groovy vibe. Its their most consistent body of work yet and hears them truly finding their sound. Their harmonies have never been stronger and their songwriting has never been so honest and raw. Even upbeat tracks like More and Woke Up In Japan have an emotional undertone that will instantly captivate you. However Im unsure how I feel about the similarities of Nirvanas Smells Like Teen Spirit in the hook of Monster Amongst Men. But the rest of the album is pretty close perfect that I am happy to ignore that one little flaw because this is definitely their strongest record yet and is an exciting reintroduction to who 5SOS are as artists.  See more from Thomas on his website
