Then where is it all? I think 4/6 of these songs were either released on their other EP or as singles on iTunes.

I have 21 in my iTunes.

Still didn't explain WTF brocoreness means...

Your words are like an epileptic fit on a forum: involuntary and prone to draw stares because your actions come without rhyme or reason. Get it together man; express your opinions with dignity.

all this band is known for really is autotune lol, i'd give them a 3 on vocals, and 4 on lyrics

you're kidding right? i've seen them live several times as fnb and in different projects and i'm going to call bullshit. chris barrett is by far one of the most talented drummers you will ever hope to see. if you don't like the pop aspect fine, but don't knock these guys as a whole for their talent because that's just crazy.

high school wasn't re-recorded. sounds like someone was looking for something to hate on.

I wouldn't really consider any part of this review "hating," but okay. If I was hating then the reviewer tilt wouldn't be so high.

Drumming has nothing to do with vocals...or lyrics. I disagree with his vote on lyrics but he does have a reasonable opinion about vocals. Autotuning has its place, but it's not something to be used in every single line of a song...as FNB seems to be doing.

Autotune aside, I still find listening to them, first time through, rather enjoyable.

sorry should have said drummers/vocalist seeing as he does both. my point is live they hold up.

you're right, apologies. it's tough not to be defensive when you're in a pop band surrounded by a sea of critics :) no hard feelings, bud?

How do you even start to compare JM to FNB?

Anyway, good review. I agree mostly. FNB is good fun music. I don't take it all that seriously but its great to drive to and puts me in a good mood.

I highly recommend this if you like Backstreet Boys, with lots of auto tune

No repeat songs? Wow. I'm suprised I haven't heard more of them.
