Pretty disappointed by this, a few decent songs but that's about it. Hope they play mostly older stuff on their tour.

its okay. im about halfway thru and its not bad, just different. underwhelming following the masterpiece of WFMTC. very pop-structured songs, which i dont have a problem with, but nothing very special

lmao why was this downvoted? i just asked a question, since the promotions and title suggest a concept album

This is absolutely terrible :( Contrast this with their first album and it's almost shocking.

Something something androids something something humanity something something future something something.

 

Maybe any upcoming music videos will help connect the dots a bit... if there was intended to be an overarching story/narrative.

Painfully generic and forgettable, that's all I can say.

Yeah now I can understand the whole amo joke. But this wasn't all that bad. Kinda enjoyed it. Don't know where they plan to go from here. Cause this is the only band who also does spoken word which for one is why this band is special for me but, i dont know. Its 7/10 for me.

I don’t get the hate behind this album. Yes it’s nothing like they used to sound, but I for one, thoroughly enjoyed this album. It’s not the same genre but that doesn’t mean it’s bad. I believe this is some of their peak songwriting. This is some of the catchiest songwriting in terms of chorus’s. This is actually a really good album. In my opinion at least. I’d give it a solid 8/10

I listened through and WOW! What a downgrade from WFMTC - every song sounds so samey and overproduced.

5/10 - no replay value

Imagine Being As Dragons really wrote for the arena this time.

Any recommendations on better BAAO releases?

Ok... some.of.you are forgetting that....  Some bands change their sound throughout their musical career it happens a lot in the music business nowadays.

Dont mind the trap/rnb influence, production is fantastic and everything sounds great sonically. The songwriting is just very boring and uninspired. I still listen to Glow, Alone and the other 2 bonus songs sometimes. I probably wont listen to anything on this more than once. But maybe it will grow on me, who knows
