In The Middle
Label: Universal-Island Records Ltd.
The best trance-music boy band since Joshua Tree-era U2 return with the best album of their career, one filled with both soaring EDM riffs and canny pop tricks. If you're after the former, try lead single "Chasing the Sun," a 2012 holdover that once topped the Billboard dance chart, or "We Own the Night," the album opener that itself opens with a drop and a sing-along. But if you're craving the latter, skip directly to "Love Sewn," an otherwise pedestrian album track that uses a few emotionally charged notes from Berlin's "Take My Breath Away" to transform it into a great one.
