Lyrically, they hit the mark with tracks like “Something’s Gotta Give”, “Missing You” and “Tidal Wave” showing off their songwriting capabilities at their finest. The record is full of sing-along, head bopping jams as well as calmer, folk like songs stimulating a spirit-lifting atmosphere. All Time Low has always done a good job of lightening the otherwise darker sentiments of their lyrics with fun melodies, which has done well for them considering their fan base consist predominately of teens in need of a musical get away.
With cool electronic elements, mainstream punk ballads and appearances from Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus and Good Charlotte’s Joel Madden, there are a handful of reasons for this to be a hit. Overall, Future Hearts gets a big thumbs up from us.
