* EpicFail: Just watch [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9hLVAo5eU4 this video]]. First Alex says he doesn't partially remember how 'Let It Roll' goes, then he doesn't remember, ''at all,'' how 'The Beach' goes in the lyrical department or the guitar part. ''Then,'' when he finally does, he immediately stops the band playing because he doesn't remember that the first verse was very short and it goes right into the first chorus on the song when the crowd sings it right, claiming that they didn't know how the song either, yet they ''did.'' Give your crowds of teenage girls some credit, Alex!

** However, this is definitely a ''very'' loose case of this, as the concept of the songs being from the many different points of view he's had is a bit lost when looking at the songs themselves and how the lyrics are written. There's not really a central idea or message that the album is trying to convey and a lot of the songs sound disconnected from one another. Compare it to Green Day's Rock Opera ''American Idiot'', which is also a concept album, but has a centralized story and some messages that the songs convey throughout the album and actually make a mostly cohesive whole and an enjoyable experience the whole way through.



** Even if you liked the song, you have to admit that 'Dirty Laundry' was probably a big one when it was released as a single. Even coming off of Future Hearts, it's, largely, a big step away from what they're known for. Even on the album, the ending minute of the song has them slipping back into what they're known for after a few minutes of nothing but a synth guitar, automated drums, and Alex Gaskarth's voice, implying there was more to come afterwards, which there, largely, wasn't.

The fact that it was the first single off LYR and it was the first music video they'd released since Future Hearts pretty much cements that it was intentional on their parts.


Added DiffLines:

** An even straighter example is that some time in between ''Nothing Personal'' and ''Dirty Work,'' Alex's voice changed significantly. It got a lot deeper and he got a ''lot'' better with his diction and/or singing, to the point that if you hear live versions of the songs from their first 3 albums from their second live album, the difference is stunning with how much better he sounds.

* {Bowdlerize}: Arguably for their cover of 'Longview' by Green Day. The main verses are handled well, but when they get to the choruses, they for some reason slow it down in the instrumentation and cut out the guitar to a degree. The song's a Punk song about boredom and masterbation, yet they tried to turn it into a ballad. No, just no. This is also a band who usually does covers well too.

* MoodWhiplash: While Future Hearts may have a few of these, Last Young Renegade has a more obvious one, with 'Nice2KnoU,' a song about leaving the past in the past and moving forward coming immediately after 'Good Times,' a song about feeling nostalgic. It's also the only song that's consistent with any of the pre-Future Hearts albums, as it's the only actual Rock song on LYR, not only making it feel out of place in its sorting on the album traclist, but also the album as a whole, since LYR is composed almost exclusively of synth-infused, slow, kind of lathargic, Pop music without as much energy. It almost comes off as them throwing the fans that they knew wouldn't like LYR as a whole a bone, as it's the most stripped-back, straight-forward, energetic song on the album.

** ''Last Young Renegade'' full stop. Whereas ''Don't Panic'' at least tried to have songs more in-line with the material from the albums before it, LYR just doesn't have more than a few, and even then, it's debatable. [[BrokenBase Whether it's any good is a source of contention.]]
