Your giving unfair credit to the band, credit the hooks to their army of co-writers. I do not hate pop music, I like the genre a lot actually, but you are insulting artists who are actually making creative and original pop by fawning over what amounts to even more poorly written teen pop.

The opening paragraph of this review sounds really pretentious. Why do some staff members pad their reviews with drawn-out filler nonsense?

Anyways I agree with the review for the most part. But damn, the lyrics on the album are pretty cliche and lacking quite a bit of depth. Probably don't deserve a 9.

it was just a way to compare my life with the band's, how we're both at a point where we're the people we want to be doing what makes us happy. its mainly the reason why I love it/relate to the theme so much, even if the lyrics aren't perfect

They don't rate the categories individually, just the album as a whole

I beg to differ with you and when the band says Everythings fine came out too early. There's nothing wrong with sounding mature. Also there's nothing wrong with abandoning everything that made everythings fine a masterpiece, all to attempt to be on the radio..oh wait there is something definetly wrong with that.

This site really needs to refocus on the type of music it started out covering.

And what type of music is that? Punk? I'm getting so tired of the attitude some people have towards/against music on this site. And i'm getting even more tired of seeing music and music opinions trapped in these genres, boundaries, "scenes". Music is music! Some of it you like, some of it you love - some of it you hate. You can't control which types of music makes you feel something, you cant't decide what music to like. That's just stupid thinking. If something clicks - no matter what genre of music - great! Enjoy it! Savor it. Feel it in your heart. Don't let the notion of "wrong genre" stop you from enjoying something.

I love the fact that ap.net covers all kinds of music. I listen to everything from Yellowcard to Killswitch to John Mayer to Japandroids to Brand New to Frank Turner, and I'm pretty shure ap.net has turned me on to 95% of the artists I listen to. I absolutely love The 1975 these days, they're my new favourite band, and they're definitely not punk. So I'm glad AP.net writes about all kinds of music.

I listened to Legendary while walking the dog today, and to me it sounds like glossy pop, with great melodies. And hey, if it makes me want to dance a little (i don't dance) and sing along, why not enjoy it for what it is? "Oh no, it's not poppunk anymore, I can't listen to this!" Who cares? No one's going to get shot for listening to the "wrong" music. (At least not in the free world)
