If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power Halsey

Released with no singles and joined by an IMAX movie, the latest from Halsey is a conceptual look at love, pain, sexuality, misogyny and motherhood produced by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross from Nine Inch Nails. Mixing fractured riffs with weighty beats, it’s a dark and moody take on alt-Rock that provides an expansive soundscape throughout.

Halsey’s vocals variously take on expressive and cinematic moments, charged Pop and more intimate confessionals that show both their vocal and lyrical talents. While the Pop Punk ‘honey’ features a rollicking drum beat from Dave Grohl and is a sure hit, the real highlight for anyone brought up on the further reaches of 90s alt-Rock that so heavily influenced this record is ‘Easier than Lying’ featuring an all-consuming, wall of sound mix by Alan Moulder.
