Weird. I heard Everything's Magic in the chorus rather than the verse.

Same. The verse is just a bunch of annoying Tom sounds. Maybe that teaser was on to something

I’m surprised to see so many people liking this one. I usually can get it even if I don’t like the song, but not here lol Tom’s a mess on this one. And how dare people compare it to Shove which is actually great and Tom doesn’t overdo it.

His vocals are a bit muddy, yeah.

The mix in this song is so bad. The guitar and vocals are just muddy. Not really one to complain about mixes but the mixing has kinda ruined the last 2 tracks for me. Can barely hear a word Tom is singing.

So what is the actual album art? The astronaut foil idea is cool. But then I see this weird chick with 4 arms that looks dumb. Is that the art?

Yeah, unfortunately it's the woman. The foil was a much better artwork.

This one is definitely my least favorite of the 4 released so far. All the others grew on my a lot and I enjoyed at least one aspect from first listen but I just can’t get into this one. Like Kay said, it’s an AVA copy and paste job.

Hmm. They're playing Bristol like a week before my birthday next year. Not that far... But... I really don't wanna give him money, and none of my friends are brain dead enough to like AVA. 

It's a pickle, for sure.

😂 Are you calling yourself brain dead?

I assume you just think Free Masons are cool because of Tom? Do you even know anything about them? Were you involved with Free Masonry in any capacity before you became a Tombot?

LOL what's funny too is Everything's Magic is one of the most lame songs I've ever heard in my life. He could have at least tried to remake a better song. Sheesh!

Tom just did an Instagram live and pulled in four or five people to join and ask questions which was really cool. The most interesting answer he gave was talking about his thoughts on psychedelics and he seemed pretty well versed in the science and social philosophies surrounding them, but also said he doesn't do anything more than microdosing occasionally and doesn't use it in his song writing process. 

Also very cool to see how genuine and kind he was with the fan interaction! Good little insty live and reminded me why the personalities of the 182 trio were such a big part of the bands we like to begin with.

Also I don't know why the new song is getting as much hate comparatively as I've found the past 3 releases to be snooze fests versus the most recent release sort of being a "Kiss With A Spell" anomaly in that imo it felt more left turn than predictable. Tom rehashing melodies is no new surprise though and I'll admit it pulls from his older stuff here and there but overall I liked the direction of it and it made me excited to hear more of the album.
