Great album if it was some band that had no history, but given how awesome and cool alternative pop On Your Side was, this album is kind of a bummer. Sub out Nick for some guy with a southern accent and you'd NEVER guess it was ARTTM. This is a pretty far cry from what this project started as, and it still carries the same name...
I get that artists change and grow and that's fine but this is a pretty big change. Hope they find success with this though, even though I can't get excited about the music.
ON A LONELY NIGHT YOU WILL SEE, YOU'RE EVERYTHING TO MEEEE
Never listened to them before, always known their name. Tried a listen here and was immediately turned off by the first song. Country pop mixed with a presence of Autotune just turned me off. Actually I've always been extremely turned off by just Country.
LOL at everyone talking about The Maine. Big change musically though for both The Maine and A Rocket To The Moon. I saw A Rocket To The Moon on their last tour and I could definitely feel that the musical change helped change the crowd at their shows. Same goes for The Maine. As for The Maine, I live by Black And White and Pioneer. Both of those albums made me feel uneasy and unsure of what I was hearing when I first heard them, but damn did they grow on me. I don't even know what kind of new music to expect from The Maine anymore, but at the same time I'm completely ok with that because they haven't done me wrong yet.
