2020s already had enough. Way to make it worse, AA.

I don't give a damn about any potentially heavy tracks. 

 

Can someone tell me if there are any good ballads on this thing?

I like "I Don't Need You," which is the most ballad-y style song on the album. But don't get your hopes up

So bad it hurts... I know they are soft now, but this is straight up garbage, it really hurts.

To be fair, plenty of "Dad Rock" genre bands make better stuff than the majority of this, tbh. That being said, the only songs I can say I kinda like are "Antisocialist", "I Don't Need You", and "In My Blood"....but I don't enjoy them for the same reasons I usually enjoy AA songs. I just like them bc they're subpar pop rock songs lmfao definitely not enough for me to download the album though. RIP AA for now. They are capable of so much more.

Also, "Give You Up" made me give them up.

Just don't comment, move on, and listen to something you like!

If people were disrespectful towards the band’s work I’d be ok with you but I think it’s good if people voice their opinion, whether it’s positive or not. And we’re talking about one of the biggest releases in this scene this year so far, so..

 

i feel like people are a bit disappointed that a band they probably loved and had affection for is becoming a bit dull, so that’s why there are such disappointed reviews but still I notice that (almost) no one’s going “that’s sh*t f*ck this band” so that’s cool

They don't even know what scene they are part of anymore, the band is having a never-ending identity crisis

Not my cup of tea, but I respect these dudes. There are some things I wish they would've capitalized more on, like the first 20 seconds of All Due Respect. Love the twang on the guitar. I wish for a more eerie vibe like that over big stadium shoutin' rock choruses. Nevertheless, I'm glad people like it. If I become a dad I will try again.

Seems to me that they're really trying to become Shinedown.  After touring with them in larger venues than they've played in recent years, I guess I don't blame them for trying.

I don't mind if a band goes soft, but they really stopped trying altogether here. It's like they wrote one song then said "that's great, let's do that 20 more times"

Trolling? Do you actually want to get rid of the tattoo?

This is the fourth reminder they’ve given me now that I don’t have to ever bother listening to anything past Reckless & Relentless. Like I was jamming Dear Insanity at work today and hearing this shit makes me genuinely upset.

 

 

And here I was thinking nobody could flunk harder this year than that stinker that Telle and the Telle Smith band put out.

Thanks for the leak.

 

Can't say I'm disappointed...I had no expectations to begin with on this album.

 

After my 1st listen it's 15 almost identical songs;

"Heavy" intro

Bland Danny pop verse

Cheesy Dad Rock, stadium chorus

Verse

Chorus

A predictable bridge

And back to that "epic" chorus

 

I have no problem with bands adapting their sound but these guys have been false as fuck about the reasons why and there's absolutely nothing inspired about their new sound. They've aimed for generic and smashed it out of the park.

Y'all remember when Danny did that interview saying "bands need to go get a drug problem"? He needs to go heed his own advice.

If you actually like a band enough to get a tattoo you wouldn’t peel out after one bad album go listen to the albums that made you get the tattoo in the first place

That's funny i legitimately thought the vocals at the beginning of "It's Not Me" were Halsey

At first I thought it was her too but then realized it's not and still couldn't put my finger on who it was, but either way, the music continued on and I couldn't shake the feeling that this album is exactly what I said in my previous comment, most of the songs can't even be considered rock anymore, they're pop rock at best, or pop disguised as rock, and they're not even doing a good job at this sound in my eyes. I shit on The Black any chance I get and call SUAS dated generic garbage but this is easily the most monotone and least creative project they've done.
