Pretty decent! I give it a 5/10 or so. I have basically zero expectations for AVA so I've actually "enjoyed" all 3 of the songs we've heard from this album. Not enough to listen to them more than a couple times each, but at least they don't make me want to laugh/cry/barf.

I do agree that his bandmate seems to be the driving force in songwriting now. The style doesn't really seem natural for Tom and doesn't really suit my tastes but at least it's aiming for something other than Diet U2

I kinda miss diet U2.  I miss the WDNTW or I-Empire sound.  But I guess all of those ideas were the last of what he had for blink before that well dried up.

I just can’t fuck with Tom anymore. His voice is so fucking bad. Does he realize he sounds like a fucking dying cat grasping for air?

To be honest I'm used to how his voice has settled the last few years. It's not as good as his old voice obviously but I don't really care about it now.

It's funny, my snobby musician friends who hated his voice and Blink back in the day say he has a good singing voice now.  They probably don't listen to it enough to hear the dying cat moments, but I showed them Rebel Girl one day and both stated that.

Chasing Shadows > WDNTW/I-Empire days > RG/K&T Tom > Dreamwalker Tom > diet U2 aka Love > dying cats and yodels

Did anyone else miss this one?

 

Whatever it is, I like it.

 

i think they fucked up majorly by sacrificing this song to some garbage edm mashup. if this was a normal ava song then it could have been the lead single. paper thin has classic tom melodies that get stuck in your head. euphoria barely even has a chorus.

All that proves is that Tom needs to be working with a modern, non-henchman producer. Besides the EDM crap, yeah that is good. But it's only good because he's not allowed to do what he wants lol.

Feldmann producing Mark Tom and Travis would result in some good shit. Tom would cancel out some of the excessive Feldmann influence.

And Feldman would probably cancel out some of the weak ass shit Tom comes up with and force him to put his balls back in his nut sack. I actually really like the idea

He sings too high in the chorus. I like the leading but then it’s like he’s out of breath and sounds like he’s mocking a high pitched singer like when he fucks around on First Date

( deleted the double post it did for  some reason )

Hmmmmm. I like it, but the last chorus is by far the best part of the song. Wish it was more like that. Its like that was his first idea, then had to make it “more mature/arty” and wrote the first half.

AVA is playing lollapalooza. I’m honestly surprised how high up they are on the billing. They’re above all time low.

Euphoria is going to sound TERRIBLE live
