This album had been growing on me lately. Then I listened to FANSD yesterday immediately after listening to Collapsible Lung yesterday and I just couldn't believe the regression. As others have said, the pop sound wasn't necessarily the problem. The quality of their past releases just isn't there on this one. Still has some super catchy jams and I listen to it all the way through when I listen to it but it is by far my least favorite release from them.
I tried that too and had the same result. The new stuff is fun and catchy but almost entirely throwaway, none of it really made an impression on me or was memorable per say. But that's ok! I'm not driven to hate it by any means. I just love other albums more.
