Score: (Rubs His Hands/10)
(But seriously: this is melting pot of “too-edgy” choruses and overbearing bass noises. Also, the singer sounds like he’s trying to channel a coffeehouse singer-songwriter mixed with Christina Aguilera vibe…it’s not working too well. Oh well, their target audience won’t even get the above jokes. Then again, I suck at jokes and meme placement.)
TL;DR: Smoke & Mirrors is an amalgamation of tasteless trends and experiments catered to pleasing the public, all while sacrificing artistic integrity. No grit, no ambition, and no pride – Imagine Dragons are as bland as white bread.
