It’s The End Of The World But It’s A Beautiful Day is focused and concise, with no songs longer than three-and-a-half minutes and an emphasis on Jared’s emotive, straight-from-the-heart vocals. The group explores new feelings and colors while taking solace in the elemental: love, seizing the moment, heartbreak, and transcendence. Among the highlights are the strident, hook-filled “Seasons,” which is enveloped in the reassuring warmth of acoustic guitar and effervescent synths; the roof-raising, arms-in-the-air tracks “Life Is Beautiful” and “Avalanche”; and the artfully produced gems “World on Fire” and “7:1.”
Thirty Seconds To Mars is overjoyed to share the wide-ranging It’s The End Of ThWorld But It’s A Beautiful Day with fans, especially after the tumult of the recent past. “If you’d have asked me when I was a kid if I’d release a single album, I would have told you you were crazy,” Jared says. “I’m an art school dropout but I was a musician first. In fact, there’ve been these funny times in my life when I was just a musician and didn’t make a film for six years. Now, it seems to have all come full circle.
