*****
Eine starke neue Single!!
Gefällt auf anhieb! Hoffe auf ein Hit wie es "Stitches" war!! 5*
***
Mediocre.
***
Looks like I'm still not a fan. Only a couple of notes away in the main hook from sounding exactly like "Stitches", but at least the production is somewhat neater, making for a better listen. 2.75
****
At the moment I liked Stitches better the first go around, but in time I expect this marginally different version to grow on me.
***
It's a decent track but I definitely agree with the similarities between this and Stitches. I really liked Stitches a lot, but it outstayed it's welcome. Also the 'better than he can' does not sound so good. A shame that they went for something so same sounding...

I'm not especially fond of the lack of evolving, and it doesn't really help that the production is a little bit overdone. It sounds really uncomfortable in the chorus because Shawn's voice doesn't really mesh together with it, like the volumes don't match up or something. While I'm at it, it does also feel like it's trying a bit too hard to find a hook and it just doesn't click with me in the same way "Stitches" did.

But that's not the problem. The problem is of course the lyrics. From my perspective, he doesn't paint a very flattering image for himself here, and so any potential saving grace has either been left on the cutting room floor, or I'm just supposed to assume isn't there. See there's this girl, let's call her Toriel, and there's this boy, let's call him Asgore. Toriel and Asgore are going out with each other. Toriel tells Shawn that she is happy, but he believes this is not the case, he implores that she give up Asgore and instead go out with him, as he is in fact better for her.

There are a few ways you can save this. For instance, provide an example of some sort of reasonable insider info that Shawn can dig up. Perhaps Asgore is cheating on Toriel for another girl, Undyne? Perhaps he heard Asgore talking to his friend Papyrus that he is in fact just stringing Toriel along. I just need something to go off of, because otherwise it's just Shawn's word against Toriel's, and that's something we generally file under mansplaining.

Then there's the opposite approach, Shawn could at least explain why he is in fact the more suitable suitor. All we get from it is that he 'won't let [her] down' and that he is a self-described 'gentleman', the former feeling like a platitude at best, and the latter descending this into fedora-core.

My third suggestion isn't much of an exclusion, rather a re-writing. I can't quite get behind the whole sentiment that Shawn is looking out for Toriel when he immediately suggests that he himself is the replacement. It's just all a little too convenient isn't it? The whole of the song leaves me feeling that he doesn't want her to be better, he just wants her.

Look at it this way: You know the film "There's Something About Mary"? In this song, Shawn Mendes is figuratively Tucker/Norm. So what I'm saying is that Toriel should just go out with Brett Favre, even if the Packers suck. I hope his next single is back on track because I feel a little betrayed here.

Still don't like his voice but I prefer this over Stitches simply due to this not being as overplayed. A weak 3.
**
Not that good.

And lets be honest, a guy like Shawn Mendes probably wouldn't treat your girl that much better, smh.
*****
Stitches Pt II is much better than I expected.

lolz @Hijinx.
**
Well I liked this more than "Stitches" at first because the production sounded nicer than on that track, while it also was catchier for me. It's only gotten worse especially since it's become a big hit like "Stitches". I hate how it sounds like it's trying to emulate "Stitches". Obvious mention about what an asshole he sounds like in this song. Dude just go find someone else, get over the fact you're not with her and stop whining. Cringe video too, you look stupid trying to be some tough guy. Is the whole point of the video to prove what a masculine real man he is to this girl? If so then fuck you, fuck you Shawn Mendes. The world needs less of that toxic hyper-masculinity.
*
Cliche and awful. Sucks
**
I can only agree with most people on this; the production here is decent, I could see myself enjoying this, but dear god that voice, it's atrocious.
Yes the lyrics are bad, but I can always turn my English language switch off and pretend it's some gibberish like I'd done before, but I can't escape that bratty, whiny voice. Him shouting "Better than he can" is one of my least favorite moments in a pop song this year.
*
Lame song and I don't like Shawn Mendes at all. Like most others, his voice irritates me as he just sounds like he's whining like a spoilt kid 90% of the time. To make things worse, the lyrics to this make him sound like an arrogant, obnoxious douchebag with him trying to steal someone else's girlfriend. That's just pathetic and is the ultimate dick move.

Edit: Wtf was I thinking giving this a 2?! This is a truly awful piece of garbage that only deserves a 1 along with his other singles.
