At the heart of it all, this set is dark, sometimes exciting, and a step in the right direction for the immensely popular but critically maligned duo. World-weariness and a troubled heart suit them well and managed to do some good on Sick Boy.

I have to say my expectations were quite low but WOW! I mean no expectations could have prepared me for this. Holy crap!

Just kidding I didn’t listen.

definitely an improvement. Not in an "hey, this actually isn't that bad" improvement. It's more like in a "yay i didn't vomit as much this time around" kinda way.

They seem to become more sterile with every record. It's utterly devoid of the soul that might qualify the "human experiences" The Chainsmokers and their collaborators attempt to reflect on.

Rating: Poor to Awful (32).

Drew please stop singing.

Other than that it has some interesting ideas, but most have been done before. The chainsmokers seem to heavily borrow from Zedd/Diplo/Skrillex to make their songs sound interesting. Most of the album just doesn't work for me although it does have some fun sounding songs, but it gets bogged down by the cringy lyrics.
