All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Hinder have a lot invested in being the bad boys of rock & roll, of being the "All American Nightmare." Of course, their conception of danger is tied to the late '80s, when the hellions of Hollywood escaped from L.A. to rule America and elsewhere. Hinder is proud to be conservative, boasting "Just leave the Jack and take your Hennessy/Take your Kanye out of my player please/that Zeppelin 45 is staying with me" on the staunchly anti hip-hop "Hey Ho," and they live so far in the past they don't quite realize how their power ballads evoke the Reagan years. The new wrinkles are the Nickelback grind of "Striptease," and strumming singalongs in the vein of Uncle ...

    Be Prepared to Make New Memories with ALL AMERICAN NIGHTMARE

    In my younger days, I was a far greatly listener of heavy metal than I am today, but, every now and then, who doesn't want to pitch every adult contemporary 'rock' album out with the trash in favor of something that has greater edge and harder bite? Hinder's ALL AMERICAN NIGHTMARE fits my modest bill, though I know that there's much heavier stuff out there. It works for me, and, if you're reading the review, then it perhaps works for you. Here's the breakdown: 2 Sides of Me: (5 out of 5) "This ain't a love song . don't get me wrong ." Like a hot wind blowing in over the desert, Hinder rocks hard at the audience with plenty of driving rhythm in its first track. Loving another person means embracing both the public and private personas, never an easy task, and it's never been hotter than set to Hinder's music and vocals. All American Nightmare: (5 out of 5) Another rock track pounding out a solid beat. "I love the good girls bad and the bad girls worse." "I'm a one-way ticket to your darkest side." Every waking parent's worst nightmare. What Ya Gonna Do: (4 out of 5) Hinder finally slows it down a bit to get reflective about facing life's challenges. "What ya gonna do when the whiskey ain't working no more . life don't feel like before . nobody's beating down your door . what ya gonna do?" If there's any drawback to this tune, then it's probably that every rock band asks and answers the same question. While there's nothing new, it's still a great listen, elevated above the commonplace by stellar vocals, even a closing coda in near acapella. Hey Ho: (3.5 out of 5) Borrows a heavy through-line from any rock track (the open sounds very familiar to Edie Brickell's biggest hit) to celebrate rock and its lifestyle (and, especially, the women) that go hand-in-hand with it, hence the 'ho.' "You never liked any d*mn song I wrote ." Perhaps a bit too predictable to bring anything new, but there's a welcome sense of fun to all of it. The Life: (4.5 out of 5) Rockers know more than a thing or two about celebrating love, and Hinder is thankfully no exception. Indeed, where would wedding receptions be without songs like this? "So this is the life we talked about, this is the 'I can't live without,' when the real world crashes down, oh, if they could see me now ." A stadium-style ballad if there ever was one. Nice work, boys. Waking Up the Devil: (5 out of 5) Welcome to what rock'n'roll does best, folks. "I didn't come here looking for a fight, but if you're gonna bite then you'd better have a bite." Laughs, pretty girls, great base-lines, whiskey, rejection, anti-establishment sentiments, and terrific backing vocals. Hinder's performance here is a bit reminiscent of some of Def Leppard's less radio-friendly stuff but with far more edge than that band ever showed except for its early days. This might be the best track here. Red Tail Lights: (5 out of 5) "Red tail lights in the pouring rain ." "We ain't gonna get nowhere screaming ." "This is where the ending begins ." Relationships are a beach (you know what I'm saying), and rockers have charted out a special niche in celebrating those final gasps at 'workin' it out' and then realizing it just ain't worth it. This is a song to crank up when you've had enough. Striptease: (5 out of 5) "You're a wannabe stripper with a microphone, and I'd respect you more if you just took off your clothes ." Bad boys are always gonna be bad boys, and perhaps there's no better j
