I skimmed a few tracks just out of curiosity. I can't stand Radke and "Alone" was genuinely one of the most awful things I've ever heard, but I'll give anything a chance once.
First and foremost, it seems like they have absolutely no direction as a band whatsoever. It's like they simply don't know what they want to be.
What I heard ranged from offensively awful to surprisingly tolerable. Nothing I'd ever listen to again, but some of FIR's stuff would make them one of the more tolerable bands in this particular genre, whatever you want to call it, if Radke wasn't such an all out piece of trash. I've yet to find a band in this scene I can really listen to, though. I tried really hard to like Pierce The Veil because they seem like really cool guys, but I just can't.
