Walk the Moon (2012)

Details Release Date: Jun 19, 2012; Lead Performance: Walk The Moon; Genre: Rock; Production: RCA

A year after their galloping indie anthem ''Anna Sun'' went into rotation everywhere from retail V-neck purveyors to frat parties, the Cincinnati quartet finally have an album. And they're not taking any chances — Walk the Moon is stacked with the kinds of poppy hooks and pumped-up choruses you could bring home to Mom. Individually, the songs are strong enough to hold their own, but after 11 tracks in a row, things get pretty samey. Call WtM a sort of watered-down Killers. The Injurers, perhaps? B

Best Tracks:
Anna Sun
