Yeah, why is this a Must Hear Album?

The lyrics are so bad they're cringe, the clean vocals are way too clean that they do not supplement the music well at all. The only consistent thing on the album was the instrumentals. Which, even those consistent moments are broken up by cheesy acoustic ballads or generic synth pop.
