The new one from Imagine Dragons in an EP entitled "Continued Silence" and it's on Interscope. Not a hobbit's nightmare but rather, the next big thing to come out of Las Vegas. It's straight ahead rock, maybe even arena rock - do they still have that? Anyway, there's solid vocals by Dan Reynolds - the band has it down and all the right people are throwing around the right adjectives and the band is playing all the right gigs, and the check is evidently in the mail. "It's Time" is the hit single, not to mention a funny moment from one of the funniest TV shows ever, "Action." They're OK but no reason to get excited - not as entertaining as Panic at the Disco but light years better than Wayne Newton.
