Overview

This young Ontario-based quartet works in a not terribly original but completely winning pop-punk vein, churning out power chords, hooky choruses, and sweet vocal harmonies at tempos that generally vary between medium-fast ("From Underneath," "Letters to the President") and rip-roaring ("California," "Recess"). Hawk Nelson are on the Tooth & Nail label and little phrases like "It's from my Father's hand" and "She thinks life would be so simple if everyone would pray" keep cropping up, so there's good reason to believe that this is one of those crypto-Christian pop bands that can't help expressing its faith but is less interested in bringing you to Christ than in making sure you bop to the beat and take away a general feeling of uplift and encouragement. Of course, once in a while they'd like you to just bang your head, which explains the headlong, 50-second punk rush of "Recess." And they're not afraid to let you know that they sometimes stand by the window crying, either ("Take Me"), which one supposes is kind of endearing if you're into that whole Jade Tree/Promise Ring/Rainer Maria Rilke thing. Overall, not bad at all. [The Deluxe Edition of Letters to the President

This is one of those CD's that theres not one song on that you don't like. They will soon worm their way to becoming your favorite that they have to me. These guys are seriously talented. Buy their CD!!!

If you thought that the pop-punk music scene was starting to die down, well then think again. Hawk Nelson has just brought to us the typical pop-punk album that you can put into your cd player and bob your head to all afternoon. They'll probably put on a pretty good live show too, so i'd be on the look out for them on the road sometime soon!
