As one of the few people on this site who enjoyed their debut for a few listens, I was interested in hearing this. Hearing Breathless on the EP made me think this could be a bit better. But it was really disappointing. I've only listened to the album two or three times since I got it. Great review, I 100% agree with you
yeah I completely agree. Breathless was just about the only good song on the new album. I feel like they're trying way too hard to keep that exact same sound even though they're naturally moving away from it as people, so it just ended up with a huge mess.
Also, some of the songs kind of remind me of Escape the Fates' new album, which is unforgivable.
