I enjoyed Pioneer greatly. Didn't like any of their releases prior to.

man i could barely stomach myself through Pioneer. Like the guy doesn't have a very good voice and without the catchy hooks from their previous material it was almost unbearable. Rated it a 1 on my itunes lol. To each his own though I guess.

Pioneer was atrociously boring in my opinion. I don't get how this site can be in love with The Summer Set (it made the most anticipated list for gods sake) but absolutely trash everything The Maine did before Pioneer. Honestly they were probably my favorite straight up pop band with The Way We Talk and CSWS. Don't have high hopes for this
If it is any correlation I have seen the summer set play live once and it nothing special and neither are their albums. I think they just wrote extremely generic stuff back in the day which honestly I guess was fun but never really stood out in the pool of pop rock bands do the scene thing. They are better off maturing and writing alt rock music these days. They are alienating their younger fan base but writing music with a lot more heart and depth. I think this band's best songs are still to come if they continue the route they are going because they are not limiting themselves and writing music they want. It is not the bubblegum pop some want but the sound they had on Pioneer has a much broader appeal.

not that you should listen to other people's opinions, but my opinion is certainly a popular one

You say you have a popular opinion... and then link to a thread containing a whopping 9 people who voice their dislike for the album, one of which is yourself, and three of which were just whining about how they wanted the old sound back. Not the best example, haha.

Just to be clear, I don't think you're wrong. From where I stood, the reception of Pioneer seemed pretty even on both positive and negative sides, you're not necessarily wrong in saying a ton of people share your opinion. I just expected to click that link and see like 10 pages of people just relentlessly shitting on it.

Pioneer is only boring to those who don't like progression and have an unhealthy love for bubblegum pop and neon colors.
This. They've grown into some respectable musicians who seem to put a lot of effort into making music they genuinely like. Don't think I could have said the same for the 2 prior releases.

"When I'm at home" is the best song they have ever written and songs like "Identify", "My Herione", "Don't give up on us", and "Thinking of You" are anything but boring IMO.

Sure the last two tracks are filler but the rest is killer. Can't wait to see where the band goes on the new record!

I wanted to like Pioneer, but couldn't get into it... Every release has captured my attention for a little while, so i'll definitely be curious to see what direction they go in. I think that's the biggest problem with people that don't like them, it's because they've gotten something different off of every lp, so they're just not sure what to expect.

nah, the record is trash

love these comments.....

obviously his opinion is important, i mean when you say "this record sucks" and "this band blows" it's pretty substantial and well thought out, so who wouldn't agree with him??

can't wait to see what he says next, i'm hanging on by every. single. word.

I can't stand their early works of this band but really loved Pioneer. They got their shit in gear and made a good album but it felt like just the begging. Anyone who wanted them to continue to keep making neon pop garbage won't be disappointed cause 100s of high school bands are doing that.

All your comments are exactly how I feel.

The only thing they do with next album other than keep up the style is to have less creepy artwork.

The band has a good following and although pioneer had 2-3 decent songs, the record overall was awful.

Loved the production of Pioneer, and most of the songs on there are solid songs. Some are a bit boring, but the album as a whole is just good. Not great, but good.
