I'm actually really proud of how far these guys have gotten. They're always touring and always working. Alex is actually a really good singer and hating on them purely for their more pop-oriented sound is ridiculous. I was bummed when Ian left because he is a FANTASTIC guitar player, but they have consistently good guitar players join them for tour.
I'd also like to mention that Alex apparently kissed a girl in the crowd during that show (he said so on Twitter) hah.
