Doesn't hold a candle to that first single. Didn't like it too much... Chorus is awful.

Whomever thought it was a good idea to accompany a JC song with a lyric video is dumb.

This is pretty bad. I like his voice but the tuning and tone of the guitar is off putting and while his voice is good as always, the melody and the mixing just aren't right. The vocals sound so detached like they're on top of the music rather than part of it. And again, that guitar tone, yuck.

I actually don't mind the guitar as much as the drums. Just like the last song I feel they're the most buried piece of the music.

I made it four seconds in. Can't stand heavy bands that rely on that djent sound. So fucking boring.

Agreed. Few bands do it right, it isn't one of them.

yeah.. I knew this band came together too quickly to have any sophisticated material. And that 'breakdown' or whatever at 2:32 sounded god awful

I feel like he's sung ONE song his whole life and producers just fit his vocals over new instrumental tracks..

This sounds like Issues minus the yelling. In other words - boring, which says a lot given that they have such a talented singer.

But then again I've been rather disenfranchised with this style of music" for a very long time. It only serves to remind me how much I've grown up and how much my taste has changed.
