I am just a PASSENGER

Passenger is what you should listen before you go to sleep.Those who don't know who passenger is, here is the wiki intro for you guys.

Michael David Rosenberg (born 17 May 1984), better known by his stage name Passenger, is an English singer-songwriter and musician. Previously the main vocalist and songwriter of Passenger, Rosenberg opted to keep the band's name for his solo work after the band dissolved in 2009.

      Passenger has the right mix of love, pain, happiness, joy, and many others emotions you would experience while you listen to their soothing music and heart touching lyrics. Michael David takes you to core of your emotions and makes you experience little things you stop experiencing in this fast moving life. The music is so intoxicating that once you get into it, you will find it hard to get out of it. You will get a hint of it from "Somebody's Love" video embedded below.


A Feature about a band is incomplete without the top 10 song list, so here is my top 10 for Passenger.

  • Somebody's Love
  • Let Her Go
  • The Wrong Direction
  • Holes
  • Sacre away the dark
  • All the little lights

  • You're on my Mind
  • Caravan
  • Patient Love
That's all from my side. I hope you enjoyed the post and if you like the songs share this post and if you have different top 10 comment it below.

Wilder Mind by Mumford & Sons

      "Wilder Mind" is the latest album from a relatively new band called Mumford & Sons. For those who don't know Mumford & Sons, they formed in 2007 in London and they consist of 4 Members(Marcus Mumford, Ben Lovett, Winston Marshall & Ted Dwane). They previously released two albums which were successful by and large . They have a distinct musical style in which they mix alternative rock with folk music which is soothing and easy on ears.
    Moving on to the album, this is a 12 track album with 4 live versions of some songs added in the deluxe version.
Track listing
1.Tompkins Square Park 
3.The Wolf  
4.Wilder Mind
5.Just Smoke
7.Snake Eyes
8.Broad-Shouldered Beasts
9.Cold Arms
11.Only Love
12.Hot Gates

   Deluxe edition bonus tracks
13.Tompkins Square Park (live)
14.Believe (live)
15.The Wolf (live)

16.Snake Eyes (live)

          "Wilder Mind" is just a magical compilation of songs which flow one after another smoothly. You will feel the synergy in the album as the tracks start to numb the pain out  of your mind. Starting from "Tompkins Park Square" to " Hot gates" you will forget the time and just get into the album. I know it may seem to you why I am so over praising this album so much, but I have my reasons. I can't even list out 4 best songs out of it because all of them equally touched my heart at some point of time. All of the songs has their moments and each of them will be taking you to different place.
         I don't know how some websites have rated this album negatively, but generally it has favorable reviews from critics and users. I wouldn't rate this album because grading something so beautiful will destroy it. Comparing it with something else will be injustice to the artist and music. So to keep it simple, its a lovely album with lovely tracks by a lovely band. Just listen to it and tell me how you guys found it in comments. Adios..

Switchfoot @ HRC Pune

       Hi guys, Now its been about a year I've written something here but now you can't miss events like a Switchfoot Concert. Last month Switchfoot toured 3 venues in India namely Mumbai, Pune and Deli and all the gigs were arranged in Hard Rock Cafe of the respective venues. 
 As soon as I heard the news I booked the VIP tickets for Pune show and seeing that my friend from Hyderabad booked the tickets too. Now I haven't gone to a HRC before so I was very excited. I met my friend in a Mall nearby and we had  pre gig chat about all the +Switchfoot previously heard and songs from the latest album +Fading West. We were discussing all the Set list probabilities and when would they play their all time favorite "Meant To LIve". When we reached there, their must be couple hundred people there waiting to for the gates to open. We had small talk with couple of people outside till the entry gates opened.

Ambiance inside was amazing as there were Rock N Roll posters, Guitars and T shirts hung around everywhere. Their technician started the sound check as we were waiting for them. After waiting for an hour they came and blasted the stage. They started with "Say it like you  mean it" which I didn't heard before the concert. I was pumped up but I was waiting for a familiar song and then they started playing "Stars" which I like a lot. After these two songs I don't remember the perfect order the songs but I remember the most of the songs that were played.    
They played  most of the songs from their new album "Fading West". Among them "Who we are" is my favorite and while performing it Jon Foreman dived into the crowed and that was amazing. "Love alone is worth the fight" & "When We Come Alive" were also great. After playing some of the songs the band went inside and we got really disappointed as most of our favorite songs were not played. But after some time Jon Foreman Came back alone and after few minutes the others followed and then they played all their famous old tracks. "Dare you to Move" and "Only Hope" were amazing and he played both acoustic and normal version of them. And at the very end they played "Meant to Live" and just before that all of our devices got drained (from camera to phone) and that made me wonder that some moments are not meant to be recorded but they are "Meant to Live".
