The debut album from this California-based quartet is likeable, turn-of-the-century modern rock played with little style, but youthful enthusiasm. Nothing here's gonna change the world, but the fact that these guys don't seem inclined toward filling any agenda or catering to a specific audience is promising. It's no-frills rock & roll with occasional power melodies

Overview

The debut album from this California-based quartet is likeable, turn-of-the-century modern rock played with little style, but youthful enthusiasm. Nothing here's gonna change the world, but the fact that these guys don't seem inclined toward filling any agenda or catering to a specific audience is promising. It's no-frills rock & roll with occasional power melodies taking charge.

just got home from their concert and im amazed at how good they are. Anyone would love their music. Give them a try, you'll be surprised.

Why do these songs sound flat? It's cause the drums sound like ice cream buckets, the pounding guitars are muddy, and the only reasoning I can think of is to get the lead singers melodic high vocals through. That's the only beef I have with this album, there are some flat out rocking crunching tunes, and a dynamic vocal lead, but the album sounds BAD. The vast majority of songs are EXCELLENT, but needs better production. Otherwise I'd give it a solid 5 stars.

I just got this CD, and I absolutely LOVE it!! So what if it is only 40 minutes long, it is soooo worth it!! Plus, There are a couple of hotties in that band, what more could a girl ask for???

I think Hoobastank rocks. I saw them in concert with P.O.D and Linkin Park. They were all awesome.

They are skilled musicians with a new sound. The cd is a definite hit.

This cd is totally awesome! I loved the songs on here as well as the one Hoobastank did on the Scorpion King soundtrack. They are totally awesome! 5 stars all the way.

omg... i'd been listening to "running away" on the radio and absolutely loved the song. it took a while for me to finally hear who they were saying sang the song and i had to get the cd. it's a really great cd and i love every song on it. you'll love this entire cd. cant wait for their next album!

It's a nice sound if you're into bands like Incubus, but in my opinion, it's not a new sound. personally i wouldn't go out and buy the CD, because from what i've heard on the radio they sound like any number of other popular bands.

I have to get this album!!! It has two of the best rock songs from 2001 and 2002, Crawling In The Dark, and Running Away. This is on my to get list. I definitely want this one!
Guest More than 1 year ago
The first song I heard by them was ''Crawling in the Dark'', since then I've gotten their cd and in my opinion they are a great new band that I think you will be hearing of alot in the future.
