All Music Guide - John Duffy
With a Hefty bag full of hooks and plenty of crunchy guitars, rocker Will Hoge can hardly do wrong, even if his lyrics add up to not that much. It is quite obvious Hoge is using his songs to exorcise his own personal frustrations the details are all too perfect anyway. In "She Don't Care," he, a bar-hanging low life, pines for the well-dressed bombshell across the street. By "Let Me Be Lonely," the relationship has fallen flat and he sees her as a big phony, and even if he swears "I'm Over You," he has a tough time convincing even himself. It makes for an interesting story to follow, but not all that enlightening, considering how many times you've already heard it, or lived ...

Guitar geeks, though, will love the strident playing of Hoge's friend Dan Baird.

    Want some classic rock and roll...well will hoge is one of the best!! Carousel is an awesome cd. Every song has a different sound, and the lyrics are amazing. Will's voice is a cross between Springsteen, Counting Crows, and Bob Dylan. Once you listen to this cd you will never be able to stop. The music gets inside your viens and flows through you body. Its great!!!!

    Will Hoge Really DOES Rock!

    I too, stumbled across this band quite by accident, opening for Midnight Oil in San Francisco. Will Hoge was the best part of the night! I'd say he's more Elvis Costello than Springsteen, but way hotter! They're the nicest guys, too. They all hung out after the show, signing CD's and making conversation... They're my new favorite band, I can't stop listening to this CD! BUY IT, and see them live whenever you can!!

    I'm hooked...

    I cannot get this cd out of my player! It's almost like classic rock again and wow- does Will Hoge have a powerful and raspy voice. Rock hasn't seen someone like this in awhile. This is his first release on Atlantic Records. He's been compared to such others as Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, and Counting Crows. The cd is simply good rock that anybody can enjoy. I love it!

    WILL HOGE ROCKS

    Not only are they the nicest guys in the business, but this is heartfelt rock and roll! The boys of Will Hoge (Will, Tres, Biran and Kirk) put on the best live show I've ever seen, and while the Bruce Springsteen comparisons are getting old, they still ring true. Check out this album if you want just a piece of what these guys pound out on the stage each night.

BUT I FEEL REALLY BAD CAUSE I DIDN'T GET TO BUY THEIR CD OFF OF THEM AND I WISH I WOULD HAVE BOUGHT IT AND GOTTEN IT SIGNED. BUT STILL, I LUV WILL HOGE.
