It’s easy to deride music by the likes of 5 Seconds of Summer. Why? Because it’s shit. Derivative, boring, unexceptional and totally by numbers, this is the musical equivalent of a Big Mac or a coffee from Starbucks. You know exactly what you’re gonna get and you know it’s going to be of low quality.
But since I always try to be balanced, let’s hone in on the good points of this Aussie teen sensation’s debut album. Firstly, it’s doing quite well around the globe – it’s always good to see Australian talent doing well on the world stage. Secondly… umm… nope, that’s it. Sorry. (PH)
