Keeping boy bands alive!!!
By Shinedown Fan 18
No Its more like R and B???
The band must know
This is horrid... it’s like they went, “okay fellas... we have an audience of pre-teen girls we have to impress, let’s go get it!”
This Cali pop Britney Spears sounds is nauseating... Wouldn’t even give it 1 star.
This band needs to change their name
To daddy pops or something like that.
This band are like bipolar they never stick to their roots.
I’m taking this album as a homage.
the Elevate song and -Top of the world as a tribute to Imagine Dragons. Like -Not the only one was ‘tribute to Blur (song2)
And -Renegade music ‘tribute to Beastie Boys.,
-Who do you trust ‘tribute to RATM,
-Feel like home ‘tribute to Foo fighters,
-Maniac ‘tribute to The Pixies,
-Better than life + The End ‘tribute to Muse, etc...
I see why people compare when the sound/styles are so obviously copied and modified for Papa Roach rap Style. It is fresh only for them and younger audience maybe.
I personally don’t mind the similarities to other bands out there. I follow them and I know they say they were gonna experiment with music styles they like. but it does make them seem desperate and lazy, not original at all, and taking on count that it only took them two months in the studio it is pretty understandable what they had in mind, I’d call it A QUICKIE, it isn’t a bad one, in fact it would’ve been a great album if any of those other bands didn’t exist at all. Or if people weren’t so uptight or smart.
Me.. id be skipping so many songs if I buy this album so only buying a couple, Maniac Pixies style does it for me.
Maybe next time just copy your old (papa roach) self. Infest songs are still relevant for a reason. Young people follow you and rock to those old school songs for a reason. You’re still playing them live to open or close your shows for a reason, your last album Crooked Teeth was a hit for a reason, you said it, (it was based on Infest) Because that.., your own papa roach music style is unique, no need to copy anyone else, evolve your own style not on somebody else’s and please tone it down a bit with all those electronic elements/sound/mixes and too repetitive lyrics if you want to keep your old fan base happy maybe? At least a little bit? :) See you on tour!
Love this new direction

All the haters need to relax. It’s okay for a band to explore new directions musically and this album is awesome! I’ve been a guitarist for over 30 years and this is a very well written album that truly showcases the talent and diversity of this great band. 👍
I have all their albums and this one is definitely different from their past stuff... BUT it still holds some the their original uniqueness. I personally love this album. I see that it’s either loved or hated and I’m one of the “love” it people
I’ve been listening to papa roach and I like their older stuff. This... it’s garbage and doesn’t sound like their other stuff. Papa roach seems to of lost themselves or decided to sellout
Not a Rock album
I have no idea why this is labeled as rock music. I’m more of a fan of their rock side. Like 2 songs are rock songs on here. I enjoyed “Feels Like Home”. “Maniac” wasn’t too bad, but the rest is way too electronic and rappy for my taste. Dude has such a great angst singing voice for rock and roll, and I hate when he wastes that on the less talented rapping. They teased some of this new sound on Crooked Teeth, but it wasn’t overwhelming and still very catchy with good beats, but I just couldn’t get into this album. Didn’t feel it. Hopefully they return to rock and roll on their next one.
Papa Roach Dominates Again🔥
What a fantastic album. People are so quick to bash something that they aren’t used to. NEWS FLASH: BANDS EVOLVE. Just because every single song on this album isn’t 100% rock, doesn’t mean it’s not good! This album is AMAZING! Papa Roach is the best! Keep it up!
