4.6 - 5*
Während ich den Erfolg von "Closer" wohl nie verstehen werde, ist und bleibt "Don't Let Me Down" ein grossartiges Stück Musik, und ist bei weitem ihr bester Output bisher & ein Highlight von 2016. Den Release dieser EP ist aufgrund der Tatsache, dass alle Tracks auch als Single veröffentlicht wurden, zwar etwas unnötig, aber was soll's.
*** This might sound very unfair, considering I like many more songs on this EP than I don't, but I didn't like this.
The main reason for that is that "Closer" is on this EP, and tha twas really going to drag this down.
There are more problems than that though. Elsewhere, I just don't think there is any artistic ambition here, however catchy many of the songs may be. The guys themselves even once stated in an interview, “Even before success, pussy was number one” (as late as September last year!), and have even done things such as publish their combined dick size on their website. And, they are also the guys that made "#SELFIE". So there are a lot of demerits against them.
But if this establishes anything, it's that they are not really here for the music. As enjoyable as some of their stuff is, their worst stuff is completely atrocious, and the duo seem like a couple of frat bros that just started making music to score chicks rather than to make interesting music, and for the most part, it shows.
