    The band has sharpened their focus on their most recent records, but in doing so has placed a spotlight on their songwriting and performance. It’s a shame that NOW + 4EVA can’t withstand this greater level of scrutiny.

    It appears that the group is still plagued by these awkward growth spurts.

    The result is one of the more confidently presented, mostly inoffensive and ultimately inconsequential albums in recent memory.

    There’s a lot less variety and momentum. That would be fine if the band proved able to write 11 really good pop songs, but this record has maybe three.

    Between the airless production, the clunky arrangements, and the songs that are bereft of hooks, the album is their worst to date by far and hopefully signals either the end of the road, or rock bottom.

    This half-baked record teeters on a constant sonic sugar crash, unable to sustain energy or interest for prolonged periods.
