  1. I like this album a lot.....as background music. The way it started out was super poppy and I was digging it. It mellowed out a bit which made me sad, but she always brought a unique sound to each song which I appreciated. I'm not a big fan of Hide and Seek. I did listen to this song once when I heard that this is where the Jason Derulo song came from. I was disappointed back then, but i appreciate it a little more. This is definitely the type of artist I've grown on now that I couldn't listen to like 5+ years ago. Definitely a unique artist and I may come back for more later. Thanks for the share Andrew.
  2. I'll give you my thoughts tonight
  3. meh
  4. Texans, Seahawks, Steelers, Packers.
  5. So this is the first one I had heard prior to the Club. I LOVED 96 and Queen Mary when they were announced. Bleed came out soon after and I thought it was a solid new sound from them. I really enjoyed it and there's a comment out there saying that I think this has every right to be my "AOTY". Baby Blue is the first new song on the album....and I'm like, YESSS this is awesome. Strange Fate is a perfect interlude for the album....but it actually signifies a shift in the album. Kodiak is pretty heavy all things considering that the first 5 songs set up...and it just throws me off every time. If it was a one-off to show off how heavy they could be, I'd appreciate it....but ILoveHateYou is the same way. The Curse goes back to the more traditional ways and I love the song. I think they could easily find themselves in repetitive rut, so its probably for the better they didn't keep it all the same, but I definitely prefer this style. Skin & Bone is good too...and Lowland Hum has your nice closing song material. This album is a 9/10 for me....but that two song-interval just kills the flow for me as an album, and while it may be in my top 10 for the year because of their normal sound, I just don't listen to it as an album that much. But I love their sound and I can't wait to see what comes of them in the future.
  6. Good pick Breanna. I have a lot to say on this one
  7. I actually really like this for some reason.....it feels....episodic is the word for it? It feels like it's telling a story. I can't tell what the words are for a lot of parts on just one listen....but I enjoyed it. I'm a person that enjoys a little more music....but I love the emotion it brings. We've had a lot of arguments on what is a good amount of scream, as we've been on the heavier side for a lot of these weeks....but this one was perfect. I didn't write down song names as I listened, but all really solid additions to the album. I'm going to give it a 9/10 on quality of what I've listened to for the year. It probably won't be on my personal AOTY list because I don't know if I'll ever come back to this anytime soon. I'm looking for something that's catchy and I can sing along to....this isn't quite that, but I sure enjoyed the hell out of it.
  8. Uhhhh, that's the 8th track on the original album. One of my favorite songs of the year.
  9. Okay @Ruiner. I finally got around to this. This is really good. My biggest complaint is that it isn't on any of the streaming services. It is on Amazon weirdly enough. Well 5 songs. To me they have a little identity crisis. They remind me a lot of Staind. A little Default in there too. Very mid-2000s. I feel there are a few songs in there that I wouldn't know it was them because they weren't unique enough, but then there are others where they go heavier and it's great. Overall they definitely should have done a lot better than they have....and I think with more albums they could have become something big. 8.5/10 Thanks for the share Vigo.
  10. New song they recorded for their overseas tour with Alter Bridge. EASILY their heaviest song ever. So good.
  11. Excuse me? Smackdown was awesome this week. One less hour to deal with too.
  12. I don't have the energy with this one to do it track by track like I did the Architects. I gave it a shot, I listened through the end, but nothing really stood out to me this time. I can't really say much that hasn't already been said. Looking forward to tomorrow's album.
  13. This is apparently the first album where they haven't added effects to his voice. I can't really notice, but I think the vocals are good.
  14. Figured that would be number one. Proud of you guys.
  15. I think it was a huge mistake to go with this style after Architects. I want to see this concept succeed around here, but if you have bands like this every week, you're gonna lose people.
