You can have whatever opinion you want of the band’s music, but a “comparison” like this is not helpful at all, and is needlessly hurtful and offensive when you could have easily made your point without it. Do better.
I think this is really cool. I'm usually a fan of psychedelic pop when done well though, so I'm not surprised. When the bridge kicks in and the guitars get louder in the mix, that's a really cool moment.
Hmmm. This is an interesting experiment from them for sure... not sure if it exactly plays to their strengths, but it's a cool change of pace at least. I just hope this album doesn't turn into their version of Highly Suspect's "MCID" where it jumps wildly in a dozen different directions.
This is honestly pretty great. The more alt metal influences work REALLY nicely for them, songs like the opener "Dead and Done" strike a really nice balance between melody and more aggression than I've ever heard from this band before. This is a really pleasant surprise.
Lol a 2-month wait for just 3 more new songs... that being said I actually like Space and The Water so I think this could be solid. Agreed with @BlueWall that I’m really glad Headrush didn’t make the cut for this.
