Now I've not listened to much of OM&M (Only the Defy album and SECOND & SEBRING) but holy shit I'm loving this. I loved Defy for it's more melodic elements but this goes fuckin hard. New album hype!

You just can't listen to this and tell me it doesn't sound like a song every single second-rate metalcore band from 2011/12 was putting out back then. I'm talking those bands like Through Arteries or Close To Home or some shit. This sounds like it could have been a song written by any of those sorts of bands back then, when everyone wanted to be as big as Asking were. It's hilarious, and OM&M still has such an obnoxiously subservient fanbase while dropping the blandest music ever. It blows my mind.

One day they'll sound like Jamie's Elsewhere right? Right??

Let's hope so, it would surely be better than this plus the last two albums.

can they just call it quits and stop ruining the OM&M name 

Unironically couldn't agree with this more 

 

Kinda funny how people can't take differing opinions

Funny that you're implying amo is generic. I will agree on it not deserving the amount of praise it has though

It is generic. It's nothing special at all. Granted i know OM&M don't make unique music, but they don't need to. Amo is every pop album ever. I think Nihilist Blues is the only unique song on that album and even then it's pretty boring. It's not all bad. I like Mantra and Sugar Honeg Ice & Tea, but it's a generic pop record from an otherwise great band

Hmm, i think some people here have no clue what "Generic" even means.

I definitely like that they are continuing with music, even after Austin left. It's not the same as it was before he left, but They are making music, and really enjoying themselves. I respect them for that. Now this? This rips. I really dig it. Can't wait for the new album they're working on!

Every time I see a new OM&M song I somehow expect Savage Hands and I'm severely disappointed when it's inevitably not.

Wonderful Life isn't that great people. You can like the album but you cannot tell me it's revolutionary in the slightest

There's a huge difference between disliking something and calling it generic. If you think Amo is generic, you don't know shit.

If you think it isn't, you dont know shit. It's a bland ass pop album with occasional signs of greatness. I've heard Amo 30 times before it was even announced

Your a moron it’s generic as fuck just because a metal band is making a pop album and they decided to put a song on the album that is the slightest bit heavy doesn’t make it unique. The whole album is lazy and poorly written. If you like the album that’s a big old sack of peaches but you can’t call it special because the same thing is done so much better everywhere else

Definitely cool that they're doing something heavier, they just don't draw me in like they used to. Maybe this'll grow on me, who knows.

I adore Amo. But I’m not familiar with many other albums that have a rock driven, polished electronic sound like it does. Can you recommend some stuff for me?

The implications that amo is "just pop" or "generic" are rather funny 

No bsnd sounds like BMTH. 

Amo wasn't only pop

This is good in terms of a "good song", but this is bad in terms of an "Of Mice and Men" song..

Glad they're keeping it heavy. I enjoy Aaron's unclean vocals just as much as his cleans.

"Generic" doesn't necessarily equal "bad"...this song, and Famous Last Word's new single both are pretty good (while not great) and they're both generic. Would something else be better? Yeah, sure. This is nice tho and I dig it honestly. Heavier than I thought a new OM&M song would be.
