This sounds like everything I’ve ever listened to. Totally generic.

What the fuck, a 2000s band that hasn't gone full blown Imagine Dragons synth pop? IMO the mixing could use some work but it ain't bad at all.

While not outright offensive, this is nothing I will ever willingly subject myself to again. This is bargain bin pop rock I would expect to hear on my local mainstream rock radio. Uninspired is the best word I would use to describe this. It's just... there. Never does it leave its comfort zone of radio friendly rock. That's just not something I have a lot of interest in.

Another uninspired pop punk release, that while the pop aspect is prominent, at least they didn't go full recent years Blink-182. It's biggest problem however, is simply an uncaptivating tracklist. From it's almost ballad-esque songs, and lyrics as clunky as they've ever been, Jimmy Eat World returns with a bland release with much to be desired.

Favorite Tracks: "555", "Surviving"

Least Favorite Tracks: "Congratulations", "One Mil"
