EDITORS’ NOTES

Largely abandoning the post-hardcore sound that they made their name on, Sleeping With Sirens pave their major-label debut with a glossy mainstream sheen. From beat-forward pop-rockers (“Cheers,” “Empire to Ashes”) and passionate electro ballads (“One Man Army,” “Hole in My Heart”) to gospel-inflected tearjerkers (“War”) and a ridiculously catchy lead single in “Legends”—the official anthem of the 2018 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games—the band seems to be signaling their readiness for prime time.

okay....

i'm sort of into this, but i'm confused on whether this is pop or rock? 'Legends' sounds like they just slapped something together real quick instead of taking their time. Kellin may as well be a solo artist bc it seems like he is rn🙄 It also sounds like his voice was heavily auto tuned, and it doesn't need to be. The song was also very repetitive. Maybe if they added a few screams here and there? It doesn't have to be like WETSAETH, it can be like Feel.

hopefully the rest of the album is better and will have more rock in it. fingers crossed🤞🏼

I'm confused.....

I heard in an interview with them that they were gonna take this album back to there roots and bring back their old sound. After hearing legends that was obviously a lie. It sounded like a kid pop song. Sws is my favorite band and I've been trying so hard to give them a break and stand by them through the hard times when feel came out. I hope to God their not conforming to this pop generation we're kids have no idea what rock music is. No matter how much the times change I believe you need to stay true to your roots. Don't let rock, punk, die!! I really hope the rest of this album keeps some of that alive

Go back to the old sound

This song does not sound like the Sleeping with Sirens I love. They don't even sound like the same band anymore. I wish they would go back to how their old music sounded. 😔 I keep hoping that it'll be good each time they come out with new music but it's just all been a disappointment the last few years..
