    Great!. People told me the Foster the people released a new album, supermodel. I first listened to Ask Yourself, I thought it was the best song from Foster the people. I fell in love with it until I heard Nevermind. I fell in love with those 2 songs, again. I fell in love to, Coming of Age, Psuedologia Fantastica, Best friend, A beginner's guide to destroying the moon, the truth, and now the whole album I loved Torches before, but now I love Supermodel better. I don't see what the people who hate Supermodel are talking about. It's great!!! Foster the people did a great job once again, addicted to this band's album

    Simply A Masterpiece. This album is easily a masterpiece. Beautiful lyrics and stories dangle out of Mark Fosters lips. Some songs are fast and catchy while others are slow and impactful. This album has no boundaries and every song has a different concept and story. The whole record is an emotional roller coaster as it really raises your self awareness. The guitars and drumming patterns are a nice touch as well. The album finishes off strong, almost like the band is exhausted from their struggles. This shows how the record is more than a series of songs, but an experience. This album is more superior than Torches and I believe it's one of the best records on the market. Favorites: Ask Yourself, Coming of Age, Best Friend, The Truth, Fire Escape

    This album is an absolute gem.. I’m so happy i discovered this album after revisiting some old songs by FTP from their “Torches” album. I have to say, their sound is a lot different in this one, but it just shows their versatility as a band and nonetheless I vibe with it. Some favs of mine include Fire Escape, Coming of Age, Ask Yourself, and Best Friend. I really love FTP’s ability to combine thoughtful lyrics with their own unique sound and couldn’t be more grateful for this gem of an album.

    Really really good. So many great innovative melodies and moments on this album. Mark is obviously improving as a composer. I really look forward to his next project . . . Hopefully the record company doesn't get in his way! The dude has brilliant ideas. He's on par with Thom Yorke in my opinion.

    A new, more evolved sound.. After the huge breakout success of Torches, Foster The People could've recycled the same catchy hooks and kept the same dance-pop sound. Fortunately, they changed their sound while still implanting infectious hooks into the songwriting. Fans of Torches will immediately notice the catchy hooks and melodies on Coming Of Age and Best Friend, the latter of which will surely be compared to Capital Cities, mainly because of the trumpets and funky guitar riffs. Are You What You Want To Be has a world groove, and a "Na Na Na" chorus. The Angelic Welcome of Mr. Jones has a church choir, but the simple acoustics, vocals, and subtle production tricks of Fire Escape steals the show. Really, Foster's latest release lives up to and exceeds its predecessor. Seriously, this is worth checking out.

    JUST AS GOOD AS TORCHES. okay im one of the biggest fans of foster the people, and i think this album is pure amazing just like torches! i dont seem to see what people's problems are, because this is just as good as torches. theres no need to complain, especially when they have 4 and a half stars for BOTH ALBUMS. i think supermodel and torches are both worth the money.

    Wow wow!!. I always felt that 'torches' had a few underrated songs in its repertoire that were just sooo good, but were mildly brought to the surface because of 'pumped up kicks' hype. This album though, is incredibly great! It's so bold and, in my opinion, a step in the right direction to this genre. I'm so glad that bands like this can evolve in their style and sound and really get in touch with their music. Listen to foster the people, people, lol! They're coming up with great things

    Still love it. Seeing that Foster the People is my favorite band, I am prone to being bias. But i waited 3 years for this album so I was basically just excited to have more music by Mark and the gang. It definitely different from Torches, but I applaud them for trying something new, if they stuck to the same thing over and over again they would never grow as artists. And I heard in an article or interview with Mark that the first time around, they wanted everything to be perfect, and with this album they let it be more free, not at strict. I still love it :)

    Supermodel. This album was one of the best albums I've heard and I'm not just saying that because I'm a fan but because this album has true meaning. For all those people who say that this album was disappointing, you all seriously have issues. Mark himself said this album was gonna have a different vibe than Torches. If you didn't like Supermodel listen to it again but pay attention to the lyrics and think twice about what you think of it. This album is gold. Period.

    BEST ALBUM. I loved this album sooooo much. And once i found out what they wrote their songs about…It made me love it even more. The Torches album is similar to this album in some aspect, but (like many people stated previously) if you are expecting a sequel than you will be very disappointed, although this is nothing like torches, it is DEFINITELY worth listening to considering how talented each one of the band members are. Once you start listening, you will not stop! Hope you enjoy!

    Way better than torches. Don't get me wrong, I loved torches but that was mainly because of "Don't Stop" "Helena Beat" and "Houdini." But now FTP ditches the creepy techno beats and dark lyrics, they then used amazing new light hearted beats and great new lyrics, this album is unbelievable. And woah the change in theme!!! They whent from talking about abuse and school shootings to a... Wait! A boy coming of age and taking a task to bestow on himself, woah!! What a change!!!! Love it!!!! The emotion near the end is off the charts, "fire escape" is such an emotional song, filled with great things, so is "the truth" great album

    What?. It’s like an album of filler songs from an indie band you’re trying to get into because your friends are into it. Terrible. Torches was a masterpiece that got me back into writing music… this sounds like they gave up or just don’t have anything good written to produce into music. Just get Torches and wait if they make a better move. This isn’t enough to give up on FTP, but enough to be disappointed.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!. Total opposite of torches, yet just as lovable! More pop and edgy sounds that make you want to dance (or is that just me..?) with still a unique vibe that Mark Foster brings to every song. I would 100% recommend this album to anyone whether they enjoyed the first album by this band or not, because this one is a complete evolved version of the band that shines through even brighter than before!

    What a new album should be. I find it hard to believe the arguments these negative reviews have... "I wanted something like torches". I don't see how you can want a new album to sound exactly like the last. If you want repetition go listen to pop music. As far as Supermodel, it's like nothing I've ever heard before and for some people that's good and for some it's bad. Coming of Age was a radio hit for a reason, it's the easiest to listen to and it's catchy enough to remember.

    Take the time to let it grow on you!. Not the catchy tune by tune that your used too. Still twisty dark weird but cool Foster. Might send a lot of the pumped up fans running but the next time you go on a long drive make this the drive tunes and after you will just see how much more you will like.

Foster the People - Supermodel Album Wiki

A supermodel (also spelled super-model and super model) is a highly paid fashion model who usually has a worldwide reputation and often a background in haute couture and commercial modeling. The term supermodel became prominent in the popular culture of the 1980s and 90s.Supermodels usually work for prominent fashion designers and clothing brands. They may have multimillion-dollar contracts, endorsements, and campaigns. Supermodels have branded themselves as household names and worldwide recognition is associated with their modeling careers. They have been on the covers of magazines such as French, British, American, and Italian Vogue. Claudia Schiffer stated, "In order to become a supermodel one must be on all the covers all over the world at the same time so that people can recognise the girls.".
