I'll have to take a listen after work. I didn't like anything post-Santi. How does this match up?

I would never joke about such a thing! Hand claps, finger snaps and "whoa-ohs" make any song significantly better!

prepared myself for the worst, but it wasn't terrible. it may grow on me once i get over the fact that it's not TAI.

it totally reminds me of a jackson 5 song that i can't think of the title of at the moment. is that weird?

Even though it is eerily similar to "I Want You Back" by The Jackson 5, or at least the choruses anyhow, I still really dig it and I like the direction he is taking with his solo stuff.

In my view, this solo project is to TAI what Patrick Stump's solo project was to FOB.

Unlikeable by comparison.

Edit:

Yeah I couldn't put my finger on the exact song, but this is definitely the sonic unoriginality I was hearing in my first couple of listens. It's uncanny at some moments.

Think this could grow on me after a while as I'll always love his voice. And, yes, the hand claps surely do it justice haha.
