Album Review... Ima Robot - Another Mans Treasure

Here is a track by track Album Review of Ima Robot - Another Mans Treasure, the actual album on consists of an initial eight tracks, but the digital copy which can be ordered online has a bonus four tracks, which will also be reviewed here

The beginning track, truly sets the tone for the rest of the album
Out of 10: 7/10

The first single off the new album, it shows just how different the band has become. With Alex Ebert mumbling out words that could only make sense to him, it still has that sense of an Ima Robot song, but with four years of growing up, it's much darker touch gives it a truly eery feeling as you listen to it.

Rough Night:
Ruthless perfectly medleys into this track, and the initial tone still remains. Starting the song off with the words "Sitting like an see my friend again" (:52), the slow, direful beat coupled with his low voice truly hits home.
Out of 10: 6/10

Life is Short:
The album takes a slight turn for the happy here, with a tune that could adorn an ice cream truck and not be out of place at all, reminding us that life truly is short and all we need is love, whether it is right or wrong.
Out of 10: 7/10

Sail With Me:
More synth heavy, this song has a fairly simple beat, mixed in with morbid lyrics that has Alex Ebert questioning his own mortality.
Out of 10: 8/10

Pass It On:
Slightly repetitive, but truly heart warming, focusing mainly on the phrase "Pass it on and multiply your love" in a way only Ima Robot can do, it doesn't get boring at all, making it a really fun song.
Out of 10: 6/10

Shine Shine:
An all acoustic song, it's a fairly personal song, centring once again on the concept of love, and how it will always lead us home. With Alex Ebert singing with a much softer voice, its a very smooth song.
Out of 10: 9/10

Maxing out at nine minutes two second, this completely instrumental song is not all that, there's something very pleasing about this song, a song that can be played in the background for hours on end and not really get tiresome, it doesn't force you to pay attention to it, and in its modesty lies its beauty, making a really relaxing song.
Out of 10: 7/10

Greenback Boogie:
A really fun song, more upbeat than the rest of the song. It is a bit more of a mature dance song, not exactly your little brothers idea of a dance song but something you can still get down and move around to.
Out of 10: 9/10

A much more nostalgic song, this song resembles more what they were doing around the end of the last album, very anthemic and very personal, but still upbeat as hell.
Out of 10: 9/10.

Another full instrumental, It is a really simple beat but very beautiful the whole way through, it easily enters your mind and gets you thinking, even though it says nothing. It really reminds you just how powerful the beat of a song can be in contrast to the typical lyricist.
