That recent song I heard from MT sounded like Katy Perry's "Fireworks" to me, haha.

Yeah, I didn't hear it until another user pointed it out, but that's true. However it's grown on me (I like some straight-up pop every now and then) and I've had a soft spot for this band since Fix Me so I'll give it a chance.

Sort of, but not really. They're a pop-rock band, but that song is definitely more on the pop spectrum than anything they've ever done. Masterpiece Theatre is their second record and would be a good place to start. Jason set up a stream awhile ago and it's still on their AP.net profile.
