The Line of Best Fit

A carefully crafted album that reaps all the benefits of those ten years’ experience.

Clash

The carefully crafted record, which is sonically their best when it comes to poetic lyricism and intricate production, realistically captures their ten years of experience and proves that stepping out of your comfort zone and taking risks can pay off.

AllMusic

As they've matured and embraced more elements of contemporary pop and electronic dance music, the group's name has felt more akin to spending languid days in one's room or walking the beach alone after a rough breakup. It's a particularly ruminative and introspective vibe they sink into on their streamlined fifth album, 2022's wryly titled 5SOS5.

O quão 5 Seconds Of Summer vem amadurecendo como artistas desde 'Youngblood' está me impressionando, a banda que no passado era uma boy band que fazia canções pop-rocks medíocres, em seu terceiro e quarto álbuns de estúdio trouxeram uma grande evolução artística, entregando neles algo muito mais interessante sonoramente que seus trabalhos anteriores.

NR

This album feels different from others this band has. It’s their first self production and the work they’ve done is amazing. Every song has its own story.
This album is a first in years they weren’t screwed over and it shows. This album for me is 10/10 and I’m looking forward to what’s coming next from this band.

NR

Let’s be blunt: it feels like 5 Seconds of Summer have been screwed over in recent years - more label mismanagement than anything, especially as the fans stuck around!

Now quasi-independent after Luke and Ashton put out decent solo projects, they produced and wrote the majority of this themselves… and for the better, because there’s quality here! No, not a pivot back to pop punk and there’s more programmed elements from other producers that don’t fit - ... read more
