I typically start my reviews off with one-liners to grab the reader's attention and then jump into analyzing, praising, and tearing down the project at hand, but with Mama's Boy, I have so many one-liners that I've thought of, so instead of actually putting effort into my writing, I'll just do this!

It's crazy that a band can devolve at such a rapid rate, but LANY love a challenge.

On Mama's Boy, LANY say the word "you" hundreds of times. Not once does it feel genuine.

“There’s been a couple times / I’ve done a couple lines / I lie to my mama, smoke marijuana / Most of the time I do what I wanna / You might not believe it / But I still talk to Jesus” I hate this song :( (i still talk to jesus).

The rest of the album is also bad. Quite bad. Boring as well. Do not waste your time on it.
I never post here but this album is so safe, corny and predictable where it's so easy to see what every single song sounds like. The lyrics on this thing are so corny, extremely unlikable and hard to believe. I really feel like a big problem on the album is Paul himself. Sometimes he has a good lyric sure but there's no passion to his voice and he sounds as bored and dragged out as the rest of this absolute snooze fest of an album is.
I love boys being vulnerable and honest.
