To pick up from the last thread, the question was posed regarding whether or not these songs are really THAT bad.

No. They are not.

(Queue the 18-paragraph posts talking about how wrong I am.)

The Blackout is definitely as good as the better songs from the last couple of albums.

American Soul would be if it weren't for the chorus and our mate refu-Jesus.

GOOYOW and Little Things are bland, and The Best Thing can go blow a d**k.

If they want people to pay attention again, reusing bits from recent albums in multiple songs that weren't that successful to begin with might not be such a good idea.

Counter point

No one heard the old songs.

i'm all for making connections back to the last album if you want to tie them together thematically, but some subtlety or cleverness would be better than just copy-pasting bits wholesale.

That Is How You Can Find Me Now would've been a huge hit.
