    Angels & Airwaves has carved out a nice little spot for itself in the oxymoronic world of thinking-man's arena-rock.

    Love: Part 2 winds up as the group's most effective album yet: it channels their '80s hero worship into something propulsive and distinctive.

    Except for the dearth of truly original ideas, Love Part II is, at its core, just another Angels & Airwaves record--nothing more, nothing less. [Jan 2012, p.100]

    Any distinction between "Dry Your Eyes" (which sneers, "Don't pretend to cry") and "The Revelator" (which offers moral support in hard times) is erased by the band's numbing grandiosity.

    It can be boring and not much fun. [19 Nov 2011, p.50]

    There's nothing here to be triumphant about.

    Ignore the critics. Love part 2 is the best Angels and Airwaves to date. The album brings an energy that most bands cant create. Many criticsIgnore the critics. Love part 2 is the best Angels and Airwaves to date. The album brings an energy that most bands cant create. Many critics blast then band as nothing more than Arena Rock but i would argue that the music is much more mature and developed than your average arena rock band. This is a great album and is def worth the money. Expand

    Worst AVA album, actually. BUT this band is so great so this doesn't matter. It's a bit unvaried but still great! Similar to its predecessors,Worst AVA album, actually. BUT this band is so great so this doesn't matter. It's a bit unvaried but still great! Similar to its predecessors, 'Love: Part Two" has no really striking songs, it's the whole album who makes it. 11 songs full of beauty, which make me happy everytime I hear them :) Collapse

    Definitely their weakest album. Delonge's vocals actually get annoying at times especially in the opening track. There are a few notable songsDefinitely their weakest album. Delonge's vocals actually get annoying at times especially in the opening track. There are a few notable songs on here like "Surrender" and "Crawl" but other songs on this album are very hard to listen to. Delonge shows no creativity by recycling guitar riffs and vocal melodies throughout the whole album. "Love part 1" outclasses "Love part 2" in every way and It makes me wonder why they even needed a follow up. This album makes Delonge look like a fool for trying to add to an album that was already perfect and their band would have been better off if this album never existed. Expand
