This is a mixed bag but it's not all that bad in all honestly, it's very long which means it's gonna have hits and misses. But my major pet peeve is the English Lyrics, I'm all about fun but man, I don't want to listen to 80s lyrics in a modern album

It's very Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll, which I don't hate but it gives off big "look at how cool we are" Energy, it's a big part of thier marketing and also, they won Eurovision, they have all the right to brag, its just lacking substance a little but some of the songs on this Definetly packed a punch and that Riff in MARK CHAPMAN is phenomenal and that song just slaps in general. If Not for you is a really good ballad, probably the best one they've done singe the other 2 slower songs on here and kinda weak.

Great instrumentation as usual, Vic Deangelis is a fantastic Bass player, so much talent there.

Damiano is such a charasmatic front man that you can't help but love his charm, even if the lyrics can be too much sometimes.

Kool kids is a weird song for this album And it doesn't fit but it's not bad, the lyrics of Bla Bla Bla are probably some of the worst I've heard though. Makes up for it that this band is just naturally talented and have a good production them behind them too as this album is clean as hell. Just wish it wasnt so long

After all that though, this is still a solid 7, above average.
