Thanks for the info. I was hoping for this. Pleasantly surprised with the reactions. Glad a lot of people are enjoying this. Overall I think it's a good song, but I'm not in love it. Verses are basically perfect. Really fun and was smiling and jamming on first listen haha But the vocal melody in the chorus is too low to have the power and punch that we have grown to expect from this band.
That being said, I think it's a good chorus, and they maybe were aiming for something different, but in my opinion their catalog (which rarely includes a dull chorus) and our expectancy to hear Alex sing higher, make this one seem "lazy". Also I think the acoustic guitar wasnt really needed and it just felt weird to me. It also doesn't help that I have extremely high expectations for this album and know this song and "Reckless" have to be the worst songs on the album in order for the the album to be a "success" to me.
Despite the fact that I dont like the first two songs nearly as much as a large majority of their old songs, I like them both a lot and this song specifically has gotten me crazzzyy excited for this album. Like this more than Reckless too.
