This is too Poppy for my liking. I was able to jam to old Lydia in my car without feeling like some super happy little high school kid, It was just more aggressive and serious I suppose. This... There's no way in hell I could jam this out loud with my windows rolled down. I am a pretty big Lydia fan but not of this new direction they went in. Oh well, they don't owe me anything. I was a fan of sad Leighton, Happy go lucky Leighton is not my cup of tea. He's a nice guy though so I'm glad he's happy.
That's a great attitude to have about a band changing it's sound. It's a shame people usually jump straight to anger if a band changes it up and they don't like it.
