III (The Lumineers) Album Reviews

IQ Test
  • The Happy Phantom
    4 stars
    Love the Lumineers. III is adventurous, inspired, and real, and carries a resonant message. The Lumineers first two albums are more pleasing to listen to and I do prefer them, but I admire Wesley and Jer's bold creation of III. The best song on the album is the "Salt and the Sea." It's one of their new best of all time. I really like the build up to the climax in "Leader of the Landslide" and "Jimmy Sparks" as well as the powerful storytelling in both songs. "April" is beautiful but wish it wasn't so short. (Side-note: we need an all-instrumental piano album from Jeremiah.) I was a bit disappointed with the album at first because some of the tracks are a bit rough-sounding. I will also say that the story is a bit confusing, especially without the videos. After repeated listens of the album as a whole, it has grown on me. Can't wait to see what the Lumineers do next.

    Depressing. I had high hopes for this album, even after not really caring for the early released “Gloria”. But this album is really just depressing. The Lumineers are wonderfully talented musicians, but this album just doesn’t sing to my soul.

    Album of the year. I love these lame reviews saying this is unoriginal, uninspired, unhappy music. It’s not meant to be happy. It’s an album about addiction you morons. It’s their most inspired album yet. A story of 3 generations of people dealing with addiction and the effects on their family. It’s so real. So emotional. The short film for the album is brilliant. There’s never been an album like this.

    Introspective, Toned Down. This album seems like a shift from some of their more upbeat songs that play well before an audience into areas of reflection, exploring broken lives at a personal and societal level. At times, the songs almost feel like the demo version, with minimal instrumentation and vocals. It's a good album, hence 4 stars, but seems not as wide ranging as their first 2 albums.

    Please Don’t Change. For all those thinking that the Lumineers need to change their music, please please don’t. I fell in love with your music, not the potential of what your new music can bring. Death Cab changed from their roots. So did OAR. Now the Head and the Heart. I don’t listen to any of these three’s new music.

    Stellar. This is The Lumineers best album by a mile. Mature songwriting and produced like its coming right off a vinyl record. All without slipping into the pop mentality that so many Alternative artists do by their 3rd album. Amazing job guys, keep it up!

    Best album!. This album is perfect! Just perfect! All your songs touch me in feelings. After Cleopatra I didn't think I could love them anymore. But here I am loving you guys even more.

    Moving forward. Yes Neyla left, the sound is a tad different but in a good way. The band has moved into its next phase. Maybe it’s the writing, but the music feels for more serious, it feels more epic and grandiose. There is a couple songs with a very welcoming orchestra. Personally I love this album, the band has evolved and it’s very evident on this album.

  • Kepesky
    3 stars
    Oh, that’s all?. I’m a huge fan of their music, huge! My kids are as well. Not one song I don’t like of theirs from The Lumineers, Cleopatra, C-Sides, every single, soundtrack song, holiday, and cover, so I was stoked! This album definitely is different and I really like a few of them but this isn’t the same band we all know and love. The story, I get isn’t upbeat and feel good but without the music videos to fill the imagination, the lyrics are repetitive and seem incomplete. The beginning of Democracy, I was going crazy - something different and theatrical but then it stopped and continued the same chords and riffs. I’m not going to say I’m disappointed because these people are very talented but maybe this was just hyped up and anticipated a little more than it was worth.

    Headlines Ripped from my Life. It never ceases to amaze me that in all three of their albums there are lyrics in multiple songs that seem to be headlines ripped directly from my life in a way no other song or band has ever been able to do so closely. I became an instant fan of the Lumineers since their first album and continue with their third masterpiece; equally excited for their future work in the coming years.

    Another Banger!. Here just 5 short days before the full release I have listened to the 6 pre-release songs on repeat. I’ve followed The Lumineers since earlier 2012, their songs were the soundtrack to college, marriage, and a kid for me. While this album feels a little rushed and the songs feel familiar it’s still a welcome sound in my life. The visuals are incredible, as always, the videos coincide breathlessly like a movie. The only thing I feel is creatively missing is the album artwork, it’s dry, but has zero detractions from the music itself. Overall I’m incredibly pleased, yet again, with this amazing duo. I worried with the departure of Neyla that we would hear a drop of soul but Wesley and Jeremiah still have it!

    6 songs in: A big disappointment so far. Let me start by saying I am a big fan. I caught on to them following the first album, so I didn’t have long to wait before Cleopatra. I like the first album and the second album even more. Heck, I like C-sides and even the songs from Storks and Pete’s Dragon. So I was really looking forward to III; it should have been a complete layup for them to impress me. So far, it is doing almost nothing for me. I get that maybe they wanted to ‘strip things back’ closer to the first album, but so far, 4 ½ of the songs sound like a dude brought his guitar to a campfire and decided to do some singing. The lyrics are unimpressive, including the strange tribute to… themselves(???) in life in the city. The melodies are largely unimpressive, and that makes the singing sound marginal. He’s not singing badly, there’s just nothing more to the song. The two things I liked most were their story-telling and their musical talent. I’m afraid – as others have mentioned – that their best composer left when Neyla Pekarek moved on. I’m still hopeful with seven songs to go, but that hope is entirely based on what they have done before this album.

    Growing Larger. I’m so happy that while the Lumineers have grown in their fan base, they have managed to hold true to their original sounds. Their first album seems very timid in comparison to their newer music. Their sound has grown along with their popularity. I’m so excited for this upcoming album! I wish it would be released sooner than September.

    Same thing, different year.. A lot of bands only have one good album in them and the Lumineers are one of those bands. Just buy their first album, it's all you really need of them. Unless you like paying for the same slightly reworked songs again and again.

    Uninspired. So far not so good... These first few songs seem hollow. There are lines taken directly from earlier albums which I have to think was deliberate but it comes off feeling lazy. The song rhythms and melodies are lacking and missing a lot. Also, the album art is flat out bad and here’s that word again, lazy. I don’t like the 3 stage release plan either. I really hope Neyla (the third member, cellist, and backup vocalist) who departed the band prior to this album wasn’t the real heart, soul, and composer for the Lumineers. I had a feeling after the second album that she was being phased out and not being given fair credit & compensation. A couple years later and she leaves the band, hmm... Bottom line is what we have so far is far from illuminating.
