Everyone is skeptical only because Alex has said almost the same thing with the last 3 records. And it's a good strategy. Saying you're doing something different will generate a bunch of curiosity which SHOULD lead to more plays, etc. Hopefully, they really are "just going back to being atl" this time though. I think that's all anyone ever wanted from them.
See I disagree. I dont remember him saying the same thing at all. He said for the last record they were aiming for a wider audience and want to be on radio. He specifically said that theres something on Dirty Work for everyone (which I agree with). I dont ever remember him saying they going back to theyre old style. I dont believe this guy who said its "horrid" at all. And about Mike Green writing...
"Studio erryday working on these new songs. @AlexAllTimeLow decided he hated me this record, and thought up some crazy ass parts."
- From Rians Twitter. Why would he lie about Alex writing drum parts? Singers/ Guitarists rarely write drum parts anyway. Alex has been in L.A. for basically the past 4 months in a rented out house and also went in December to write. He wouldnt go just to watch a producer write. Obviously we wont know until a song comes out, but Im 98.65% sure this record will kick ass (or at least be much better than Dirty Work)
