I don't see where people get the idea that because someone releases a solo album, that it must be exclusively them and them only on the tracks.
It's just Travis working with other producers and whatnot without needing the input of the rest of GCH.
no, but the part he is singing is the main hook. the part kids are going to be reciting to their friends in clubs and it's not even his melody
i'm not saying that people should go the route of literal solo albums like patrick stump and serj tankian but i'm saying that if you're gonna write a solo album, you could at least write it
besides, the GCH band besides Travis are actually pretty talented musicians
