Review Summary: You already know it’s bad. Why even bother?

I’ve been avoiding this album for months, because I knew how bad it would be. However curiosity has gotten the best of me and I finally decided “Forget it, I’m bored as hell right now so I guess I could use something to laugh at.” Wow did I regret that decision. Never again will I torture myself with decisions that I know will make me lose brain cells in the process.

Not only is this the worst rock album of the year, but it’s also one of the most boring, generic, run of the mill, painstakingly bad albums I’ve ever heard in my life. And I’m not saying this because everyone else is saying it. I genuinely believe it’s this bad. It’s so boring and formulaic that I literally fell asleep halfway through my first listen. This was one of the longest most excruciating 45 minutes of my life that I’ll never get back. I will say that there are some pretty decent choruses sprinkled throughout the album, but that’s the only positive thing I can say about it. I think a toddler can put more effort into making better music than this. The lyrics are laughably bad. The instrumentals are nauseatingly dumbed down, and the vocals are nothing to write home about. It’s like they took the worst qualities of Nickelback, Creed and every other generic radio rock band and put them all together to make this abomination of an album.

I don’t know what else to say that hasn’t already been said. This record is garbage through and through. One of the worst albums I’ve ever heard, and I hope it’s the nail in the coffin for this band’s career. I guess they couldn’t get past being “headstrong” assholes on Twitter, because they’ve accomplished the impossible. Well done Trapt, you’re losing whatever was left of your dwindling fan base.

Score: 1/10

the Armstrong brothers have openly supported Trump since 2016 and at least one of them is an election fraud conspiracy theorist

a profile popped up on parler claiming that they had, and a lot of news sites ran with it. turns out it was a fake though. he was never fired.



given that he seemed to be someone in control of all the band's social media and is one of the only original members left in the band, I wouldn't be surprised if he has some legal claim over the name. I think the other members would more likely just quit than fire him.

Yeah, quitting would definitely be the best option in that scenario. Even if the band members fired Brown, all of his bullshit would loom over the band's name and brand regardless

"Not only is this the worst rock album of the year"



That new album by the old FFDP drummer is probably worse but these two are definitely the worst rock albums from this year.

Oddly enough, both are albums with frontmen who are crazily hyperconservative MAGA bros.
