The Energy – “When We Were Young”

YOU TUBE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCswB0b79No

The Energy has managed to channel the true essence of old-school rock ’n roll in their album. Their album consists of edgy chords, dynamic lyrics, and an overall resonating vibe that will leave listeners wanting to listen to “When We Were Young” over and over again.

Their songs are as follows:

Losing Myself

The song tells a story about what is happening when someone is stuck in abusive relationships. It’s sort of the opposite of Free, which is about pursuing personal identity. The song is all about losing the self and falling apart. I rate this song 8 out of 10.

You Can Follow 

The message of the song is about following someone not because of its fame but because following by the unique personality. We all know that most of the people are attracted by the physical appearance or by fame but the important thing is, we should love people by their kind inner peace. I rate this song 9 out of 10.


When We Were Young

The message of the song is about looking back our lives, and realizing how much less powerful and in control we are when we are just kids. I rate this song 9 out of 10.

Return To You

At first the song is very relaxing to hear because of the guitar sound or we call it as acoustic song. This song tells a story about lovers and the boy is asking to wait for him by the girl she really love and also the boy promises to the girl that he will return to her, if she’s willing to wait for him. I rate this song 7 out of 10.


The beat of the song is very nice that can make you wave your head voluntarily and even if the song is repetitive it’s very nice to hear. I rate this song 10 out of 10.

Don’t Come Around 

This song is one of my favorite because the story of this song catches my attention, it’s all about being wanted to be alone because the betrayal of the people around him. I rate this song 10 out of 10. 

California Sun 

If you love a place because of the memories created on that place, this is a perfect song to hear for you to remember those happy memories with your friends or love ones. I rate this song 9 out of 10. 

American Disaster 

If you’re the kind of person who likes being alone and if you don’t give importance to others, this song is for you. I rate this song 7 out of 10. 

The Constant 

If you’re the person who loves rap, I’m sure you’ll love this song. There’s some parts with rap and it is very nice when it comes to duet. I rate this song 9 out of 10. 

Little Man 

The song is very relaxing and the sound is very soft because it only uses guitar. This song is all about growing up. I rate this song 8 out of 10.

This album is great for those people who wants to flashback their memories when they are still young. The happiest and saddest things happened in our lives remains in our mind, at some point people forget it so they need to recall it if they want. I give this album a total 8.6/10. With 10 great songs in an album, it is definitely a good to buy.
