Album Review: Animal Sun - 'Generation Waiting'

Updated: Jul 28

LA pop-rock band Animal Sun releases highly cinematic and engaging sophomore album, Generation Waiting.



Animal Sun has continued to push the boundaries with their sound within the pop-rock genre. With agitated guitar nuances, spry percussive energy, and unique, playful soundscapes, Animal Sun proved with their first release, Echoes In A Dream, that was more to their authentic presence and textured sonance. Their new release is no different, as Generation Waiting is an extension of everything fans have come to love from the fresh LA four-piece and more.


"Incredible cinematic track "Generation Waiting" is by far the best listening experience on the record. You feel as if you have been transported somewhere else texturally on this album, however, it does not feel out of place, just Animal Sun showing they have the chops and the instrumental technicality to pull this off, and it's simply breathtaking."


The album starts with a catchy lyrical and electrifying first experience, "Chasing Shadows." A perfect blend of electro-pop and alternative rock, it hits a gorgeous sweet spot for what's come on the rest of the record.

Another beautiful moment that takes full-emotional control throughout the album is seedy-synth number, "Up/Down." With a highly stylized grungy, otherworldly atmosphere and great use of lyricism, this track is one of the best representations of their sound on the album.

Incredible cinematic track "Generation Waiting" is by far the best listening experience on the record. You feel as if you have been transported somewhere else texturally on this album, however, it does not feel out of place, just Animal Sun showing they have the chops and the instrumental technicality to pull this off, and it's simply breathtaking.

The album ends with two luminous arena-worthy tracks, "Make Believe" and "On and On." Vocally candid and instrumentally transcendent, Generation Waiting ends on a highly positive note.

Generation Waiting is vivid, heartfelt, and original from start to finish. With inventive uses of each genre and lyrically peeling back emotions with every song experience, Animal Sun spares no expense at giving us a great album and a grand spectacle that showcases pure emotion and instrumental creativity at its brightest.
