I absolutely adored The Click Five during their Eric Dill/first album days but the moment I heard the new guys voice + the FOB-wannabe songs, my adoration for them fizzled away. Their first album was filled with pop masterpieces, tracks that were so fun yet 'cool' enough to top the charts and the band admitted that they were making pop. Their second album quietly came along(I didn't even know they were releasing one until about two weeks after!) and the only track I really actually liked on it was Flipside but even that wasn't like how they used to be.
So apparently, they're gearing up to release their new album sometime this year and a new song is circulating. I got curious and since I loved their first album so much I gave them a chance and listened to the song. What I heard surprised me.
The guitar at the start sort of reminds me of Catch Your Wave and the verses sound like something Eric Dill would have no problem singing but what blew my mind was the chorus. It's nothing like the first album but it's like they've managed to make the two sounds from their previous album mix with the poppy side more prominent, thankfully. The in-your-face melody that the first albums songs had was there, but you could hear the second album in the song. It made me smile, it isn't this lame trying-hard rock song like Jenny - it's a sweet pop song that I could imagine playing at a beach party or something.
I honestly have no idea what this song is going to be - is it gonna be on the album or a single? What I do know is that I absolutely love it and if they see the light of another album with stuff like this, I'd buy it.
