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.

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.

Musik wie ein 1996er Ford Mondeo - nichts Halbes und nichts Ganzes. Aber die Fans des Formatradios sind damit bestimmt trotzdem d'accord.

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 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!

The best thing I can say about this song is that I made a remarkable observation: This is a collaboration between the duo who made "#SELFIE", and a singer who did a highly questionable version of Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself" that essentially made it "F**k Yourself". I caught a glipse of the video recently and realised that Halsey looked familiar, in the hotel scenes at least, remarkably resembling one Victoria Chase from "Life Is Strange". If you've played at least the first episode of it (if you haven't, it's free to buy on all platforms and very good), perhaps the line of dialogue that you'll most recall is when she tells you to 'go f**k your selfie' (which makes sense in context). This also means I have to dock points because Halsey never taught me anything about daguerreotypes, the process which gave portraits a sharp, reflective style like a mirror. Now I'm totally stuck in the retro zone :(

In all seriousness, it's kind of remarkable that Halsey ends up being far from the worst thing about this song, although the ensuing profile advancement from it may prove its most testing impact. No, the problem lies almost solely on The Chainsmokers, who as you might know, have gone great lengths (17 inches innit?) to show their inner bro. It's a shame really. I was once prepared to defend "#SELFIE" whose retractors felt more le wrong generation-y than anything else, but I can no longer look past just how exploitative the song is to the opposite sex.

A problem that seems to come up in just about all their songs once I started to notice it. Put simply, they just cannot seem to write a female perspective that feels on level, they always seem to be in need of this greater man. I can (most of the time) appreciate that they're using their influence to push lesser known artists into the spotlight, but I wish it were done in a more dignified way.

"Closer" is after all, a story song, told through two perspectives, but it's the guy who comes off looking stronger in this match up. He's the one whose life was perfectly in order, while she was immensely taken by him and even has to remark how attractive he still is. He's the one who's badmouthing her friends, while she's the one who's broke and living by off whatever she can scrounge up. Oh and she was insane.

You can say it's a millennial romance anthem, and in that sense it glamourises a whole sort of image that I just cannot allign to*. The people in this song are just people I would not want anything to do with, and the song isn't framed in any significant way to support this feeling. It's just dumb, overdramatised emotions that will have no tangible impact on their lives 10 years down the track when they've travelled every other state and hooked up with half a dozen other partners, never learning anything. Such is life?

Oh and something about Andrew's complete incapability to sing, and how unsatisfying the 3-note Fischer-Price breakdown is. The Chainsmokers regularly have lousy breakdowns but woah this is a disaster.

*The shoehorned blink-182 reference really seals it for me. If there ever were a band I retain no emotional connection to despite growing up at just the right time to do so, and part of me gets bothered that blink-182 get all the promotion when their new album is just so lousy. A few months on and "Built This Pool" is like the only thing I can remember from it.

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*

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.

Seit 10 Wochen jetzt auf Platz 1 in den USA. Kaum zu glauben, welcher Mist heutzutage auf die Chartspitze steigen kann. Die Band erlebt dieses Jahr ein Hype - aus diesem Grund der unerklärbare Erfolg. Und jetzt, wo das Video veröffentlicht wurde, wird das Lied noch für längere Zeit in den Top 10 bleiben. 2*

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.

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.

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.

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.

Ik was hier in eerste instantie niet van onder de indruk, maar ik moet zeggen dat ik dit nu helemaal geen slecht plaatje vind. Integendeel zelfs, bij elke luisterbeurt vind ik 'Closer' aanstekelijker klinken, en dat is natuurlijk grotendeels te danken aan The Chainsmokers. Ik blijf erbij, na '#Selfie' zijn ze alleen maar bergopwaarts gegaan!

Hätte hier nicht mit männlichen Vocals gerechnet, aber anscheinend singt einer der Chainamokers-Jungs auch mit, und das gefällt mir hier fast mehr wie Halsey's Beitrag. Guter wenn auch deutlich schwächerer Nachfolger zum genialen "Don't Let Me Down", ist aber trotzdem ihr bisher zweitbester mir bekannter Song. Bin nach wie vor überrascht dass das schon der dritte Hit dieses Jahr werden wird, hätte bei dem Selfie-Schrott nie im Leben mit auch nur einer Nachfolger-Single gerechnet... gute 4+*

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.

Also nach der Steigerung auf schwachem Niveau von "#Selfie" hin zu "Don't Let Me Down" haben sich die Chainsmokers bei mir mittlerweile ins solide Mittelmaß vorgearbeitet. Die Produktion klingt professionell und catchy, die Stimmen sind beide ganz angenehm, viel Spektakel wird aber nicht geboten.

Knappe bis solide 4.
