Evolve (stylized as ƎVOLVE) is the third studio album by American rock band Imagine Dragons. This album includes 11 songs and 3 singles. The singles are titled as “Believer" and “Thunder”. The album's sound has been described as pop rock while containing elements of R&B, hip hop and EDM. The album’s title “Evolve” represents the evolution of Imagine Dragons in terms of sound (music). The songs in this album sound generally strong and at times, dark. The songs have a mix of up-tempo and downtempo music., For example, “I Don’t Know Why”, “Walking The Wire”, “I’ll Make It Up To You”, “Thunder”, and “dancing In The Dark” are all downtempo music. I enjoy the songs in this album because of the beats and the similarities to electro music. My personal favourites are “Believer”, and “I’ll Make It Up To You”. Overall, the second studio album by Imagine Dragons was much better than this one because this album felt as if this was an experimentation gone wrong. They experimented by including multiple genres in each song such as electronics, pop, rock and mixed it together, with a failed result.
