Good pop record, people just hating because they used to be a little punk.
Punk? What?

The hooks on this record are fine, I guess. But the whole thing is so sterile; there's not really any genuine emotion at all. It feels a bit soulless.

Also, can "harmless" really be used as a positive adjective in this sense? Don't we deserve more from music than something harmless?
with you.

Haha my thoughts exactly. Never thought of them as anything but a boy band.

Best thing the band has done. They made average, run of the mill pop rock music before. This suits them well.

80% sounds about right.
the one start from AP was a bit much, and I think it was the only one-star they gave all year

Alternative Press gave this 1 out of 5 stars, stating that it's a HORRIBLE album. Usually Alt Press inflates ratings of albums for various reasons (industry funding I presume) and Aboslute Punk butchers the hell out of poor records. This 80% rating seems so wrong...
Mega-lulz at "industry funding." You know you're posting on a website that at one time sold guaranteed reviews and news posts without letting the users know, right? Alternative Press has never done that.

Also, this record is atrocious.

How can you call "Take me home" awful? It's easily the catchiest track on this album.

Please stop lying, it's getting ridiculous. This is just patently false. Any advertisement has always been completely disclosed to the reader.

Not everyone can be "band of the year," Escape the Fate.

I like a few songs, but is seems very overdone. They're such a better band than this, I'm fine with them being a full on pop band now, but they could do better.

Doesn't look like it sold much the first week, lack of promotion I guess. This album has the potential to be big with the Adult Top 40 crowd. "Stuck in the Middle" is pretty much a "Boston"(Augustana) redux, which may help it in the long run. Even though the songs don't have great lasting value, the hooks are pretty damn addictive("Shoot").
