Spoiler : it's the best they ever sounded, save from few mellow songs.

Well time to clear the rest of my day. I really need to invest in some quality headphones.

Yeah, I dunno what it is about this band, but I can't get into anything they've done. I like a couple of scattered songs -- A Toast to the Future Kids is pretty good -- but as a whole, their work seems pretty unmemorable to me. This feels the same.

The album leaked a couple days ago, and i've spun it as few times since then, but i just can't shake the feeling of disappointment that i had upon the first listen. The three tracks they released prior to the album launch were all really good, and got me really excited for the album, but the vast majority of the rest of the album is just boring. I knew that there would be more mellow songs on the album, and being a huge fan of Bradleys vocals i thought this would be a good thing, but holy hell do the songs lack imagination. They just drag on and on, and even though Bradley sounds technically good, it just does nothing for me.

Beautiful record and absolute the best they've ever been. I love it wholly and I'm glad that I preordered it.
So happy for Bradley too, as I can't say enough great things about his vocal and lyrical performance on this.
I'll Just Wait and But You Won't Love A Ghost back-to-back is my favorite part of this thing. Bevard, Gold Dust, and the 3 singles all get me pretty stoked as well.

There's a few quality jams on here, but a lot of the album does seem a bit mellow.
The thing I don't understand was how vocal they were about being reduced to a Jonny Craig backing band, and now that they are out from under him, they release a record where they are just a backing band for the new vocalist. Dare i say that both of the Criag-era albums featured more stand out musicianship than this album.
I'll definitely continue to listen to it, as maybe it'll click once it sinks in a bit more. But I will say that Bradley sounds great on this album, I really dig his delivery

this guy at times might be one of the more annoying sounding vocalists in several years to come out of the "scene" or whatever yall are calling it now

This will be one of the most overrated albums of the year. The hype is unreal.

Personally never got into emarosa's previous albums, I just can't stand last singer after a song or two. But this albums pretty great.
