Today we are featuring the promising alternative rock band, Blueanimal, from Orlando, Florida, USA, with their latest album, Figment That Was Me.

Blueanimal is a promising alternative rock band I discovered with their two singles off this album, 'On My Mind' and 'Rock Bottom,' and featured them here on Metalhead Community Magazine. Today, I am going to talk about their latest full-length album, Figment That Was Me, which was released on June 4, 2021. Please give the album a listen while reading the rest of the article.

When I first listened to Blueanimal a few months ago, I was positive about everything the band was musically trying to do. However, after listening to Figment That Was Me album a few times on repeat, I started to feel like they are not just another indie alternative rock band making traditional American alternative music; it is surely much more than that.

First of all, Figment That Was Me is an easy-listening album with nine delicious songs, mostly influenced by the '90s alternative, hard rock, and blues-rock scene. 'On My Mind' and 'Rock Bottom,' the songs I reviewed before, had blues-rock fundamentals in their build. Yet surprisingly, the rest of the album takes a different musical direction and influences. It leans more towards grunge, hard rock, and sometimes pop rock, giving a nostalgic feel as if these songs could have played on MTV and VH1 back in the day. Honestly, I wasn't expecting to like and enjoy this album that much. It took me back to my childhood and reminded me of all the great music playing on the radios. I even heard some influences from Nirvana, REM, U2, Metallica's Load and Reload era, which immediately made me feel better (for instance, the third track, 'Anyone But Me'). In my book, Blueanimal is a good band with their blues-rock side, but they are quite fantastic when they show their '90s alternative, grunge, and hard rock influences.

The technical side of Figment That Was Me is spectacular. I loved the real-sounding instruments with the necessary headroom, lively energy, and beautiful vibes throughout. After spending all these years listening to new music every day, it's a gem for me to find an album with such a sound. I loved it, and I don't think it could sound any better than this.

When I take all of this into account, I'd like to say that I enjoyed listening to Figment That Was Me by Blueanimal. As I said earlier, they show real potential with the character in their music on this album, which I believe will play a crucial role in their future careers.
