Fair points. I agree that a lot of this stuff doesn't sound great. Some of that is a 'kitchen sink' approach to production and arrangements whereas back in the day, less was often very much more, but obviously compression and the demands of streaming and MP3 which seem to dictate the need for everything on a level don't always do it any favours. At least with this band, there's less going on.

I don't listen to a huge amount of the new melodic rock. It has to really grab me. This and the first single grabbed me, whereas nothing from the debut did.
Ironically (and very surprisingly) so does the new One Desire (the debut left me utterly cold) and I've always liked Lionville's very smooth almost Westcoast sound, but the vast majority of stuff on Frontiers in particular these days doesn't do much to excite me... I'll look forward to hearing more from TMF.
