The War on Drugs

Visions of Mom and Dad slow dancing to the powerful Eighties rock ballads from I Don’t Live Here Anymore invite themselves. The fifth studio album from Philadelphia-born rock band The War On Drugs is all Eighties synth, owing debts to Phil Collins, Bob Dylan, and Def Leppard. Luscious and melancholy, the Grammy-winners offer their most grounded lyrical reflections, losing none of their sparkling layers of texture and melody. These songs were made with legacy in mind, inspired by new baby Bruce (like Springsteen), said leader Adam Granduciel, who requests that concertgoers mask up. – Christina Garcia
