The Maine lost some of that chill vibe, and upped the pop in "Everything I Asked For." It's cheesy, and cute. Songs describing girls are easy songs to fall in love with. The random gang vocals are a good touch.
"We Roll Along" kind of blends in the background, in a repetitive monotone way. At first, I was slightly bored with "Girls Do What They Want," until the chorus kicked in. Although juvenile, it has the perfect effect.
The CD title comes from "I Must Be Dreaming." It's not anything particularly special, just aboy wants girl song. "Into Your Arms" is a stand out track on the album, it's sincere, yet witty, cute and innocent with a hit of mischief. Not many bands can have a slow song that totally represents them as a band.
"Whoever She Is" reminds me alot of Cute Is What We Aim For's "Fourth Drink Instinct" "Count Em, One Two Three" is the pre packaged radio track of the CD and will spin through your head like a cheerleading chant for days.
"You Left Me" is the pick-me-up the CD was missing, a nice tongue in cheek dance track with a lot of variety. There's a country twange to "We'll All Be...", it's the perfect final track, warm and inviting. It's like saying see you later on a summer afternoon. In the end it leaves you smiling.
That thing that made "The Way We Talk" so special has been lost with the full length, “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop”. Instead of 5 amazing songs that could be singles, some tracks are just fillers. It's not a disappointment, but it's also not on the level that is expected, however, The Maine proves to be nothing short of amazing live, that the tracks will take on a whole new life when placed on a stage.
3.5 out of 5 [CO]
