Overview

The new millennium's surge of alt-metal acts and various punk-inspired groups nearly blurred the ideas of originality and credibility. Los Angeles' Home Town Hero emerged from the same scene as Hoobastank and Incubus, totally ignoring such theories. Their power pop spirit blended with an intensity similar to the likes of Stone Temple Pilots and Our Lady Peace, defining Home Town Hero's own stance in rock. First single "Questions" is a ballsy look into the band's tight rhythm section of bassist Todd Burnes, guitarist Drew Stewart, and drummer Ray Blanco. Frontman Aaron Bruno delivers tough, throaty vocals while turning to personal reflections. Post-grunge turns pop for the jaunty bounce of "Who's to Say" while "Run Right Through" is a frenetic metal blast. Home Town Hero isn't concerned with making music for the mainstream. They've tailored it to those who'll identify with them lyrically, leaving them to be thrown into the fray of current TRL hard rock favorites. Still, Home Town Hero exudes an honesty in this record. It's basic, but smart.
