yeah tbh the cleans are too high pitched for my taste, but thats nit picky shit. the screams get me where i need to get.

i'll probably prefer ben's lyrics too, cuz the lyrics aint standing out too much to me from the new homie

So it was pretty in the middle for me. On the one hand, his harsh vox are on point and fit perfectly, but then his cleans are so weird and don't really mesh that well. Instrumentation is solid as expected, but it kinda feels held back.

Best part of the song is 1:55 to 2:30 was by far the best part of the song, that shit slapped

Overall tho not worth the wait

I like it quite a bit, but I'll wait for the full length because his work on Aviana is generally stronger.

The harsh vocals = Good/great
Cleans = Ass
The song overall sounds so derivative too. Its like they made a Stillworld track and sucked the soul out of it.

"Best part of the song is 1:55 to 2:30 was by far the best part of the song, that shit slapped"
lol that part felt like all the cool little parts in their past songs all condensed into a single riff. Wish the song was as good as that part

Agreed completely, that part is like that old Stillworld feel coming back out, I wish the song had more of that sound

Was waiting to see the official single art for the song and my god is it DULL, what happened to the sick looking vibrant art on Everchanger and Stillworld, that single art perfectly personifies this song is well, pretty directionless... I mean... it's smoke... it's a shit and fucking boring art (yeah album art is usually a factor in my enjoyment of a song, sue me)

album art is part of the art man. i get it. i like covers too. visual art is part of the illustration of the sound for the public

Man they should've continued with the cool album art instead of this

Listened to the song a few more times and honestly it's solid other than the cleans, which wouldn't be so bad if he didn't use them so much lol

yeah the screams are dank, and they use some of the stillworld ambient clean shit on guitars too. better than most bands who replace a vocalist and try to come back.. but it woulda been cool to be BETTER than before with ben

He just needs to stick to the cleans he did in the chorus of "Canvas" by Aviana, those sound good

He has solid range and a really emotive mid to high range scream, I really don't see a need for cleans at all. It's like they went down the metalcore checklist and said "well we HAVE to have cleans."

The song has grown on me and I'm not nearly as offput by the singing as I initially was, but it still totally derails the song's flow, it's just weird how poorly it fits into the track.

Yea I'm feeling the same way, the cleans def aren't necessary. Ben didn't even use cleans that much so I hope they don't force cleans into every song
