Meg & Dia started out as just two girls. One did vocals and one played guitar (basically). That album was really good and honest (Refering to "Our Home is Gone"). This is faceless pop rock/pop punk that is so over-produced that it now sounds just like anything else that's out there. They claim that there's experimentation on this album, but really all the only new elements are the same dance-pop crap that every other over-produced band utilizes. That's not experimentation and this isn't worth anybody's time.
