This kind of reminds me of Fall out Boy mixed with Wolves and Machines. The song wasn't bad, if not generic at times, but it's nice to hear Johnny on something that is not R&B garbage

I have no idea how these lyric videos are an actual thing now. They're unpractical and it doesn't look good either.

Too much reverb on the guitars. They feel too overlayered in effects.

I'm enjoying the song but yeah it's kind of just one giant buildup that doesn't go anywhere unexpected. Still could have been a lot worse.

And hell yea those guitars are pretty drowned out, sadly. Hope the album has some more interesting riffs and songs.

Yeah song pretty much sucks IMO. I dig Craig but I hope the album is more straightforward than this massively layered vox show. It's like everything has taken a backseat and then we got Johnny but he's doin the same junk we've always heard so

I got halfway through, then I just started skipping to see if anything was actually going to happen towards the end. I can't say I expected much of this though.

I hate that I like this fuckhead's voice. If someone tears out his trachea and transplants it in someone non-douchey, will it transfer over?

I'm not sure if I listened to something else than you guys, but I thought it was really good, and far "catchier" at least than the majority of stuff he's put out himself and most of Emarosa's stuff.
Musically it's still nothing special, but it's the most interesting backing he's had for ages.

I'm glad they made sure to show 'stuck between the voice and the echo' everytime he sang it.
I would have never known what he was saying without it.

Issues, Woe Is Me, Memphis May Fire, Jonny Craig - just don't understand the hype on these. Song sucks.

Reason i listed those 4 is cause ppl talk about them all the time and they blow
