*****
The Chainsmokers werden immer besser mit der Zeit!
Die neue Nummer mit der sehr symphatischen Halsey gefällt mir bisher am Besten!
Vorerst 5*+
**
Awful. Are they even trying anymore? Something about this infuriates me, because even earlier this year there were Roses & Don't Let Me Down, and now there's this generic sellout. It sounds like every other chart hit this year. Even Halsey can't salvage this. And also, the guy from the Chainsmokers singing is terrible.
****
One step backwards.

Halsey seriously sounds like Swifty. It's a pretty catchy earworm and I quite like it. 3.75

Seriously sick of this.

Possibly their best? It had moments I quite like anyway.

Quite bland-ish.

Average and overestimated, but there are worses

It's almost as good as Don't Let Me Down, if not better.

And somehow, the lyrics work great, considering this is an EDM song.

Thanks to overplay, I am sick of this song.

As mainstream and structured as it is, this is probably my favourite from them. To be honest, I am quite impressed with The Chainsmokers in 2016.

Also, it is quite surprising to see 2 members of The Fray linked with this.
******
These guys are on fire, three smashes in a row. Although this does fall short of their best track 'Don't Let Me Down'. I think Andrew should probably just stick to producing and looking pretty though.

EDIT:

Upgrading to 6/6. One of the best songs of the year. I'm surprised people don't like the lyrics, it tells a good story. The "we ain't ever gettin' older" is meant to be in the same vein as Taylor Swift's "we never go out of style", basically a bad relationship stuck in a vicious cycle. The verses show that both sides of the story think they have pity for the other half, it's very well written.

The success of this bewilders me more than the success of One Dance - the male vocalist is so so bad, the lyrics are dumb, and it's a terribly undanceable 'dance' track. I just don't get it.

It's ok but can get annoying quickly. UK#1 and Ireland#1.
******
I personally love 'Roses' but hated 'Don't Let Me Down'. This song i think beats them both! Great to see Halsey finally getting some well deserved chart success as well!
**
I'm sick of it and I can't take them seriously because they brought out a novelty song as their first single! Why does Australia think this was so good? And the sad thing is Halsey couldn't save this!

This is a disaster, I really hate this song. It feels like a watered down version of Roses and I wasn't a fan of that either. That drop is laughably bad and I don't care for Halsey at all. It's just another proof that Americans simply can't do dance music.
**
Geez these guys are frustratingly inconsistent. They go from releasing "Don't Let Me Down" (their best) to this steaming pile of crap, which I would say is their worst to date so far (yes, even worse than "#Selfie").

I think it mainly comes down to that awful breakdown, which is honestly one of the worst breakdowns I have ever heard in a mainstream electro song. It is just way too plain and simplistic and pathetic (only 3 notes I think) and doesn't reach any level of elation whatsoever.

Let us not forget some of the cringeworthy lyrics we have here as well, particularly the lines about the stolen mattress and the Blink 182 name-drop.

And, this is more of a nit-pick than anything else, but who cares that she can't afford the Rover? What does that add to the song? It doesn't paint anything about the picture of this relationship, and just felt like you put it in to fill some space in the chorus.

And unbelievably, this spent nine weeks at #1. This song is just proof that once you water down your music and give it as least personality as possible, it will become popular. Such a shame, but what else should I expect.

1.5*
***
I still can't really get into this. Its 12-week reign at #1 in the US (and nine weeks here) is strange to me. I wonder if the Boulder mentioned in the song is the town next to Kalgoorlie, probs not!
*
Absolute rubbish, this is the lowest common denominator of mainstream pop/edm music and a perfect example of why a lot of chart music nowadays sucks bad. As several people here have mentioned, the male vocalist is godawful and one of the worst 'singers' I've ever had the displeasure of hearing. Although Halsey's vocals are somewhat decent, it's not enough to save this trainwreck of a song.

The problem doesn't end there though, the lyrics are terribly cringeworthy even for a song about sex, especially the blink-182 name drop as pointed out already. As for the beat, it is just as bad as the lyrics if not worse, not only for the fact it rips off a far superior song by The Fray but also because it is so lifeless and generic even for a typical edm track of the now.

I'm can confidently say this is the absolute worst song of 2016. Although 2016 has already been a year filled with shockers, this one takes the cake.

I hate "The Chainsmokers", aside the irrelevant fact that their band-name is ridiculous, they are shameless bandwagoners, they tried to create a novelty-hit after the "Gangnam Style" craze and ultimately failed, now they're trying to ride on the tropical/house anthems and you can't get more bland than this song, this is the musical equivalent to fast food.
*
Crap
******
Very good. I like how the piano wave chills the break chorus on "So baby pull me closer" I reckon that's why it was number one for quite awhile. Ever since is dropping out slowly this I still reckon is another biggest hit after Don't Let Me Down.
