EDITORS’ NOTES

This is the sound of world domination in 2017. Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall’s debut album comes after quite the storied introduction to their sound: two monster EPs and a summer-owning single (“Closer”) they were confident enough to leave off here. Memories… takes the band’s dynamite blueprint (retro synths and minor-key piano that softens up their explosive EDM) and adds some maturity. Opener “The One” feels like “Closer”’s broken-hearted sequel; Emily Warren’s two stately contributions add class; and the mellow “Wake Up Alone” features Jhené Aiko in masterly, seductive form.

Jonah Varc ,

it's kinda okay but still not good

Repetitive with such mediocre vocals and a forgettable chorus. The chainsmokers are the most below average EDM duo that exists. There is absolutely nothing special or different about them, and everyone makes a huge deal about them for pretty much no reason. They were good when they weren't super popular, but now they're just sellout electronic dance crap. how sad. if this is what people consider good, then the music industry is doomed for sure.

seriously?!?

why do all of their songs sound the same with a few different parts and lyrics? this music is complete trash

maxj13.👏🏼 ,

they're ripping themselves off

do people not realize the drop is literally the exact same one from "Roses"? it's kind of crazy to think they're willing to rip themselves off to give them another hit
