Overview

On the surface, a band blending driving hard rock with powerful ballads would seem like a fairly boilerplate proposition in a world already populated by Shinedown, Three Days Grace, and any number of other faceless post-grunge acts. Fortunately, Halestorm have their not-so-secret weapon, singer Lzzy Hale, whose powerful vocals easily set the band apart from its peers on its sophomore album, The Strange Case Of.... Delivering another versatile performance, Hale helps to give every song that special something, adding the right amount of snarl and grit to more aggressive songs like "Love Bites (So Do I)," while also bringing genuine passion to the more emotional "In Your Room." Her ability to convey emotion without being dramatic is an asset that Halestorm take full advantage of, and to some extent, probably rely on. This isn't to insinuate that the compositions backing up Hale are bad, but the music, while solidly written and cleanly executed, isn't anything that fans of the genre haven't already heard before. It's a bit of a boon, then, that the strength that Halestorm play to is an exceptional one, and anyone that has grown tired of the current crop of meatheaded hard rock bands trying to seem sensitive would do well to give The Strange Case Of... a spin. [A clean version was also released.]

This is an excellent, hard rocking album from one of the best up and coming rock bands today. Lzzy Hale's vocals remind me a lot of the legendary Pat Bentar with her range and emotion. "Love Bites" is up for a 2013 Grammy, and its well deserved. Favorite tracks include "Here's to Us", "Love Bites", "Freak Like Me" and "In Your Room". I have seen them live 3 times in the last year and they have quickly become one of my favorite live performers. Get this CD, you'll love it!
