I love the sound and vibe of both 'Of Steel' and 'So Good', but those choruses are just so weak that it makes them quite forgettable. I hate how repetitive they are. Way too many songs on the album have a chorus that's just one line tweaked and repeated over and over again. I just feel like if Max had more time with those songs he could have worked at them to make them not so safe, and instead, a little more unconventional and chaotic sounding.
I get what you mean and I hate it when bands do that but Sherri's voice helps in So Good and I just like Of Steel too much to care. Peace Out is just pretty weak all over imo and while I do really like the music in the verses, AIA is just embarrassing to me.
