The song itself isn't too bad, though the lyrics are pretty weak at points. ("But for now, we're staying out of her way 'til then." ?)
The main thing I don't like about it is the lazy animation. This is the first time in the show that they used repeated clips for a song (I'm pretty sure anyhow), and they even went as far as to completely recycle the animation loop for the chorus. They change it slightly for the 3rd chorus, but it's still mostly re-used clips.
I really hope that it's an isolated incident, and not a picture of what we'll be seeing in the future. Like, they were really crunched for time on it so they had to give it a bit of a rush job; I can understand that. But to really put something like that out as the best they can do? Ehhhh. I hope not.

Whaaaaaaat? No way. I've been watching his pony stuff on DA for a while now. :)
I had no idea he and Zander are the same person.
On the topic of the new episode: I thought it was pretty mediocre. Which, by FiM standards, is pretty bad.
My primary concern arose the moment they released the first teaser with Babs Seed in it. The character is very clearly a girl, yet she doesn't sound anything like one. She doesn't even sound like a more masculine girl. She just sounds like a straight-up guy. It's like when they were casting her part, the person in charge never got the memo that they were supposed to be casting a female character.
I mean, most of the background characters we've seen throughout the series have had more fitting voices, but at least with those you can chalk up a bad voice to, "Well, it's a background character." But for one who's supposed to be the main antagonist of an episode? Eh.
And the other problem I had was with the song sequence. (See above for details.)
It had its moments--like the introduction to the CMC clubhouse, and the speech at the end accepting Babs into the CMC
--but on the whole, I wasn't nearly as impressed with this episode as I was with the previous three.
