For real. Both bands are 'popular' because of the scene drama. Tyler does have talent though, just needs a good avenue to show it off properly.
Yep. Tyler's vocals are beautiful.
Both early WIM and Issues show(ed) some potential overall, but they tended to be messy, confusing projects. (especially issues, who can't seem to figure out if they want to be Tyler Carter's new pop project or a chugchug metalcore group)
the newer WIM, though, is horrid. Much of the genre is accused of being 'generic', but that album takes generic to the extremes. There are no original ideas there, and even the attempts at existing styles are executed poorly.
