Best thing About this Album: The consistency of the musical greatness blows my mind and puts a smile on my face. There’s not just one stand-out track. They’re all great! Also, I am obsessed with their harmonies. Twins ftw!
One thing I wish was different: Range? Nah. Idk. Trey and Ty can kind of do no wrong in my eyes. The album is a tad saccharine (even the heartbreak feels optimistic!), but some people have an emotional/auditory sweet tooth. It’s good. Nothing wrong with a little ear-candy.
