    Haters gonna hate. POP ETC is a beautiful album revolving around the themes of being honest with one's self, creative vision, and overall control of life. With the name change, Pop Etc realized that they couldn't be anyone but themselves. Also, embracing POP music as a genre is a powerful beautiful thing. For many artists, the main goal is to spread their music to as many people as people, and pop music is the most effective medium to achieve that collective - it's a beautiful thing. Funny thing is, tons of indie-artists are now recognizing this and the most successful ones of late, I'd argue, have integrated pop sentimentality into their sound - tame impala's lonerism, vampire weekend's mvotc and a whole bunch of others. Even if the music seems a little hard to digest, I'd recommend re-listening to it and embracing it for what it is. It's fun and some good shit. That's not to say that they can't improve, but that I look forward to what Pop Etc releases next.

    Hahahahahahaha this is so bad. And not because of the genre-change. God, I love rnb. But this is just bad. The vocals, the production, the lyrics, the melodies. The lack of inspiration here is astonishing.

    perhaps they went for it under a new name, so they can go back as Morning Benders without having the name stained :D

    if it sounds amazing, then yeah, of course. experimenting with new sounds is generally cool, but not when it actually does end up sounding like One Direction.

    New direction is interesting. What, you all want a band to have only One Direction?

    i wouldn't have minded the name change so much if they didn't decide to become so awful as well.
