Connection - Single Tracklist:
Solid 5 stars. I’ve been a fan ever since I heard “Wherever I Go” in May of 2016. Amazing in concert and I’m so stoked for their fifth album, I hope it’s even better than the last one!
This is one of those rare songs where I liked the verses better than the chorus. The chorus is just them saying “Can I get a connection” over and over again and without any real level change so it feels like it’s missing some notes to make it better. I don’t think it’s a bad song but I don’t think it’s particularly a good song either. Middle of the road.
I don’t see it. I am not feeling this. I am usually for artists exploring new creative sounds but THISSS compared to the unique sound and emotional punch that all of One Republic’s first albums delivered?!? It’s a huge miss for me. OR is so much better than this. They are one band that is farrr too talented to make this crap, crap that doesn’t even sound like them anymore and is no longer special in any fashion.
I am enthralled with the idea of OneRepublic expanding to different sounds. Ryan Tedder is still a lyrical genius, and I can still hear the masterwork of a band rather than a singer with a few grown men tagging along. However, my own nostalgia allows me to sympathize with the passionate fans OneRepublic left behind with Oh My My. While I enjoy the new sound and like it as much as the old, I hope we haven't seen the last of classic OneRepublic. Nice job though, and I am still here and hyped for the new album!
All these people disrespecting the change, man. I love it. I loved your old stuff and I still listen to it all the time but this new stuff is pretty good too. Keep up the GREAT work and hopefully your new album will be awesome too.
Just found out this dropped and I've got a 'Connection' to this song! I like the new sound and as always OneRepublic never dissapoints!!!! Can't wait for you guys to come back to Florida!!!!! -Jerry
