KARMS presents a unique approach to an anthem. Listening to all but the last few seconds of “We Always Lose,” the takeaway is a pessimistic one – “you can’t win, because you are surrounded by doubters and enemies.” There are hints of messaging a positive approach; then the chorus returns and the black cloud settles in. That is fine, music can motivate, but that’s not its only role. The lead and backing vocals are strong; they can carry the track. And we enjoy the Rock guitar that drives the bridge at 2:28.
