So, um, 30 Seconds to Mars - Here's the thing...
I think that you're just fine. I really do. I get what you're trying to do. I've enjoyed what I've heard on the radio, which is pretty much that Kings and Queens song that the stations played 2300 times a day. It was catchy and angst-ridden, which is exactly what I would expect from Jordan Catalano.
I've since heard a few more songs, which... do they all feature a live audience? Do you ever have a hit song that is recorded in a studio?
