Review Summary: Someone had to do it.

I think we can all agree pop music has taken a massive turn for the worse over the past few decades. Pretty much every single pop act over the last decade has been the same thing: preppy, trendy, 20 something boys/girls singing 2-3 minute puppy love anthems that dominate the charts and are consistently shoved down our throats. Big Time Rush, a boy band manufactured by Nickelodeon (of all companies) jumps on this bandwagon to create one of the most generic pieces of music (I.e. Noise) ever.

First off, I would like to put a fact out there: I have actually listened to this album. My sister has this CD and she used to play it on loop in the car all the time. So, believe me when I say their is absolutely nothing redeemable about this CD. It is comprised mostly of songs from the TV series of which the band derives from. The show sucks, but the music is pure sh¡t on a stick.

Okay, that may be stretching it bit. The album does one half-decent moment on the track "Boyfriend" where some fairly catchy instrumentals show up. But aside from that, the song, like everything else on this CD, is bland, cheesy, and painstakingly generic, and the verse from Snoop Dogg (Yep.) doesn't make it better.

The overall biggest problem (aside from everything obvious) about the CD is the four vocalists in the band, Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow, Carlos Pena, & Logan Henderson. They have no power blending/harmonizing their voices, and on their own each members' voice is mediocre at best. They heavily rely on autotune in EVERY song, which says enough on its own.

Well, I've pretty much said what I need to say. Unless your a 9-12 year old girl, don't buy this CD. Unless your a sexually confused little boy, don't buy this CD. Unless you have severe brain damage or an IQ of -10 or lower, avoid this CD at all cost. Unless the Loch Ness Monster was discovered and ate your ears off, don't buy this. I can't stress it enough.

Eh, at least it's not BrokeNCYDE.

"I think we can all agree pop music has taken a massive turn for the worse over the past few decades."

I do not recall being surveyed for this.

"preppy, trendy, 20 something boys/girls singing 2-3 minute puppy love anthems that dominate the charts"

This is every single era of pop music in modern history.

"First off, I would like to put a fact out there: I have actually listened to this album."

I usually listen to the albums I review as well.

"My sister has this CD and she used to play it on loop in the car all the time."

I guarantee she has better taste in music than you do.

Homophobic? Check.

Look, I can understand if someone was having problems if it was their first review. My first ever review on here wasn't pretty at all, but after ten reviews and you're still doing a worst job at talking about an album than the average youtube commenter, which seems to be what you were aiming for. You only brought up one valid point and then brushed on every other thing you said with no detail because you wanted to make cheap shots at other things instead of the subject matter at hand.

Not trying to be rude, but this is worst than the Punk Goes Pop review that was posted the other day.

These guys always struck me as being wack as fuck even by tween pop tv star standards, and yet they still have millions of genuine adoring fans and what not and it blows my fuckin mind.

Finally, someone else who see how SHIT p0p music is nowadays! Everything is garbage now! I was totally born in the wrong generation, since I missed so many great bands, like The Shaggs, The Archies, Starland Vocal Band, etc. Music was so much better before the 2000's! XP
