Best CD

Listening to such megabands as Coldplay is frustrating when Las Vegas boasts an act just as, if not more, talented: Imagine Dragons. Given the right label push, this could be a platinum-selling band that packs stadiums. Don’t believe it? Listen to the Dragons’ It’s Time EP, an exquisite gathering of eight perfect synth-pop tunes, from the deranged and disturbing kiss-off of “Leave Me” (“I give up/You gotta get a gun/To make a woman run”) to the chill wave-meets-R&B groove of “Tokyo” (“Where do I have to go/To find a honey with a little soul”). It’s Time, indeed.
