CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

While there are plenty of hooks here, the dancey pop attitude is matched by a growing maturity with lyrics about growing weary of the party scene, the emptiness of touring, and yearning for that one perfect love.

Rolling Stone

The snottiness of pop-punk highlighted their natural humor, and while they've certainly grown as musicians, singers and writers, a bit of that goofy charm is missing.

O terceiro LP surpreende pelo novo som apresentado. A banda australiana saiu da zona de conforto e reestruturou a sua música. Com músicas intensas, "Youngblood" é um álbum brilhante, divertido e ousado que, de alguma forma, conseguiu mostrar a maturidade recém-descoberta da banda.

Anyone wanna bet on what shitty Instragram-era design aesthetic a now-irrelevant boyband is gonna try to head their new album release with next?

I've never been a fan of 5SOS. This album is alright, I guess. It's nothing daring, nothing offensive either. But they've gone for a pretty neat sound and while the songwriting needs work, it still has matured. Plenty of hooks here too.
