Loving the dual vocals and and pretty much everything about this album.

Great release.

IMO they sound like just surrender vs. mayday parade
really fun pop punk music with dual vocals going on, everyone should check this band out!

backstabbing is one of the catchiest songs ever (think there's no I in team, but not so intense :P)

Not too shabby.
I really wish the autotune wasn't so noticeable, or that they were better singers and didn't need it (in the songs where it's not supposed to be noticeable).

Really enjoying this band, great review. I actually like the backup vocalist better than the lead.

Pretty much every song on the album. I'm not talking like T-Pain auto tune (although that is used on at least one song if I remember right), but pitch correction. If they don't hit the notes perfectly then they use a program to correct it, or to help a long note sound better and stay the same not the entire time.

It's not super noticeable though, unless you know what to listen for.

Oh I'm sure they can sing. I mean, I don't see why they'd have a record deal if they couldn't sing at all, and I'd love to see them live. Just by listening to the songs I can tell the shows are probably good.
