Take a deep breath, Chainsmokers fans…
The DJ duo's single is currently No. 1 on iTunes charts following the hotly-anticipated release of their debut album last week.
But as a whole, the collection of earworm-y tracks that is Memories… Do Not Open has most of the users and critics of Metacritic gasping for air (and substance)!
As of now, the pop/EDM duo's debut LP is the WORST release of the year, with a critic score of 4.3 and a user score of 1.3!
The user score for Memories… is particularly dismal, given the next lowest score is for Ed Sheeran's Divide, which received a comparatively honorable score of 4.3.

On the critical side, the album was ranked as the second lowest on the site, only beating Canadian-rapper NAV's self-titled album.
Critics were weary of the album's repetitiveness, Andrew Taggart's inability to carry a tune, and vapid lyrics that sound like they were penned by a songwriting computer. Ouch!
Though we don't think the VMA winners mind these shitty reviews, since not an hour goes by where one of their singles isn't blaring on the radio.
