Bring back the first albums style
The Boy Who Died Wolf was bad...
...aaaand somehow they made an even worse record.
Executed poorly and and not fun to listen to.
Highly Suspect's past two records have been phenomenal testimonies to this new generation of rock music, but this new record has been completely disappointing. For starters, some of the songs on this record get too personal and are kinda cringy and uncomfortable to listen too, such as "fly" and "16". The instrumentals are boring, needless and don't transition well into the other songs. The "rap" songs are mediocre, annoying and don't feel creative. The "rock songs", such as "snow white" and "@tddybear" are just cringy and cheesy and sound lazily written. MCID does have a few good songs, but they aren't strong enough to support the rest of this lazily written, chore of a record. Overall, MCID is a huge let down to fans, and is nothing unique to new listeners. This record will surely be forgotten.
It grows on ya
I didn’t care for it much the first time
I’m usually a rock guy and what not but that song 16 it’s just 👌. I can listen to that song everyday and still jam out to it so good for the band.
the laziest project i’ve ever heard
Going downhill fast
This only gets 1 star because it won’t let me give it zero. The lyrics on this album are some of the worst I’ve heard on any album in a long time. It’s like an angst ridden 13 year old wrote most of this album. These Days is legit one of the worst songs I’ve willingly listened to ever. This was one of my favorite bands when they came out and I get that they wanted to go in a new direction but they failed miserably at it. I’m not sure that they will get my money when a new album comes out
They are a knockoff of themselves
By Andrew Nice Clay
They are incredibly talented and driving with the emergency brake on. They sound like a knock off band inspired by themselves, Royal blood, and an awful rap group. It’s still better than 99% of pop, but won’t appeal to their fan base. To be more positive, this album is a more tolerable maroon 5
What a letdown!
Loved, loved their first album!!! After that they went downhill. This album is horrible! Go back to making rock music!
Difference between different and good
I can’t think of another rock band that had as much potential as Highly Suspect when Mister Asylum released. Sadly with the last two releases, it seems they have seriously killed their own momentum.
The boy who died wolf had some good ideas but was obviously very rushed and the lyrics were terrible compared to Mister Asylum and their self titled independent release.
And with MCID, different does not mean good, and this album is very disappointing considering how long it took to make. And for a sound that is drastically different, the songs are surprisingly forgettable. I doubt their next album will be better as this feels more like Johnny Stevens (feat. Highly Suspect) and its looking like it’s going to stay that way. We became fans of a rock band. You have the freedom to make whatever music you want as it is your music first, but your fans are not obligated to stick around if you change.
