Haha, you actually nailed most of them (Halo, Hide and Seek, California Girls)... There were some other ones that if I were to sit down and listen to the record again I could probably remember.

When it happens once or twice on an album, I typically let it slide. But when it's a reoccurring theme across the whole album, I feel like I have to say something...

And I guess it's the way they build the chorus until the cut out and start chanting "Fallout" that reminds me of the ending rendition of the "Battlefield" chorus.
I have to agree with what you're saying. I love the album, the vocals, and music, but many of them melodies of it get too similar to some other songs. Thankfully, it's not whole songs and only just parts of them, but still. Like it's only the first part of No Place Like Home that souns like Hide and Seek, my favorite part of the song is the last three minutes of it - beautifully eclectic.

Where the fuck is the rest of the band? Also showing an awkward guy running from obviously green screened explosives is cool, for like one shot, not an entire video. /rant

Regardless, I enjoy this band

Dude sings his ass off. Still can't get over the Nickleback pre-chorus though. Ruins it every time for me. And the person who mentioned them kind of aping a few big songs from the last few years on their catchier tracks is absolutely right.

I feel like I can go through their new album and with every song point out the mainstream pop song that "inspired" it...

For example, this song is their remake of Jordin Sparks' "Battlefield," their song "Toy Soldiers" is way too reminiscent of Adam Lambert's "What Do You Want From Me," etc...
Desperate Measures has some "Teenage Dream," "California Gurls," and "Blow
in it. I knew I heard toy soldiers in it somewhere, but with all that, I'm still a fan of the album. Aoty for me.

That's instantly what I thought when I heard this song. I like this band but I don't like their most recent album.
