There's a tons of lines in the lyrics that are pretty clear water/mermaid metaphors in retrospect. Some samples:



Fishing reference + obvious.

I think I'm a little surprised at all the hate for Dissenter. I love it. Though I kinda think part of its charm is how polarizing it is - I feel like it was meant to be polarizing. It's literally...

The drums on Adelaide are so hot. That alone makes it worth it.

The supporting acts really caught me by surprise (in a good way), you should go. Breaking Laces were unmemorable, but they played first. Rare Monk were the ones that really caught me off guard - I...

I think this is pretty fair. It's grown on me enough, and I do like several songs on it. I don't think it'll be any fan's favorite album, but it's still enjoyable once you get past the "wow this is...

Posting this review a month before the rest of us get to hear it is just cruel. Nice review though, looking forward to this quite a lot.

All you people saying "I gotta go check out Have Mercy now" - yes do it.

I checked it out this time last week, and I have not stopped listening since then. I don't even know WHY I love it so much, but wow is it wonderful.

Hah, are you guys positive this is a new singer? He sounds identical. I didn't even notice during the song or trailer until I read the comments, and I can still barely tell.

Either way, new song is...

2/3rds of the songs range from mediocre to outright bad. I think the most painful part is the lyrics are utterly meaningless. Even Relient K's past poppy albums (Five Score) have at least had several...

I wish I could like this album because I love this band. Man, it's just not good at all. I even knew it was supposed to be "a goofy pop album" and I was totally fine with that... but man, this isn't...

Great review. Am I crazy to think this is the best to be released under the I Can Make a Mess name? There's no tracks I dislike, and as much as I loved the previous two albums, they at least both had...

It got taken down. Guess I should have ripped it when I had the chance.

I'm sure the band is thrilled with some dumb kid randomly leaking the song onto his tumblr.

This "study" sounds pretty flawed. I would guess that on average, Conan gets far fewer "big name" artists than Kimmel/Fallon. Do you really think Fall Out Boy on Kimmel was going to enormously...

So... they haven't even started recording anything? After how many years? And still no singer? I'm done with these guys.

They put on a pretty amazing live show. I think they're much better at that than studio albums.

I dunno, I thought Punk goes Pop was hilarious. Maybe it's not intended to be funny, but I don't care, it made me laugh enough that I enjoyed it.

Oh good, another thread where we argue about Some Nights. I'd like more of these. We haven't completely hashed this argument out yet.

What are some of the lyrical themes present on this album? NTFP had a lot of relationship-oriented stuff, Cities was very introspective, NS was very topical, DITW seemed more poetry-driven... What's...

No they didn't. They band formed this year, the scandal happened last year. They said it wasn't named after the scandal but after a street name, but it was still stupid.

Very well-written review, but I disagree with quite a few parts. I actually think the lyrics miss quite a few times, but they're acceptable enough. Just felt like a step back from their debut....
