    You want the mix to jump and pound and excite. But it doesn’t, and the choruses feel hung out to dry. This makes for a frustrating listen, because the talent is there – damn, even the songs are there.

    There's some post-winter optimism to be had in its relentless good cheer, but for the most part, it's too indistinguishable from the rest of the pack to have much of an impact.
