Review Hoobastank - Hoobastank - Cd
Fight Or Flight

Review The XXX-rated quartet Hoobastank arrives on this self-titled major-label debut as a nu-metal Weezer, though without anything as cheekily subversive as "Hash Pipe." The similarities lie more in Hoobastank's tight playing and vocal harmonies than in the overblown post-teen lyrics. In track after track, singer Douglas Robb is in crisis; whether he's intoning or yelp-rapping his words, they are never as articulate as the emergency-siren guitar of the punkish "Pieces." Even the grateful love song "Let You Know" is weighed down by an expectation of times "when I'm feeling like everything and -one is hurting me for something or other." Dude, get yourself a Popsicle. The album's 12-song sequence moves inexorably toward clichéd Limp Bizkit guitar riffs and one true change of pace, the spacy, Deftones-like "To Be with You." Unfortunately, its lyric is nothing more than a sensitive-guy attempt to convince a girl to "give in." Sweet. --Rickey Wright
Every Man for Himself

Review Fight Or Flight, the new album from Hoobastank, marks the beginning of what promises to be a vital new chapter in the nearly two-decade run of the versatile
L.A. band. This musically and emotionally intense work is Hoobastank s initial release on Open E Entertainment following a productive decade on Island Records during which they ruled the modern rock charts, crossed over big-time with the iconic smash The Reason and sold 10 million albums.
FOR(N)EVER

Review 2010 collection of iconic recordings from one of music's most memorable (and successful) acts. From hit singles to fan favorites and album tracks, this compilation of great tunes tells a more fulfilling story than any written biography ever could. One listen and you'll understand why this release is part of the Icon series! Universal.
Extreme Behavior

Review After logging more than a year on the Billboard 200 albums chart with their Grammy-nominated double platinum second album, The Reason, Island recording group Hoobastank returns with their long-awaited third album, due to arrive in stores on May 16th, 2006 featuring the new single 'If I Were You.' Hoobastank delivered one of the true phenoms of rock's last two years with The Reason. The title hit, 'The Reason,' 2004's longest-running rock single inside the Hot 100, was nominated for Grammy awards as Song Of the Year and Best Pop Performance By a Duo or Group with Vocal, while The Reason was nominated as Best Rock Album.

Review Hoobastank - Let It Out
Fallen

Review 2009 album from the Alterna-Rock heroes, produced by Howard Benson who is best known for his work with My Chemical Romance, Daughtry, Reliant K and Flyleaf. When a band has as much success as Hoobastank, the motivation to top itself must come from within. That renewed desire can be heard from the very first notes of "My Turn," the first single from Fornever, which marks a return to the Rock roots of their first two releases, the platinum-plus self-titled debut and the two-million-plus-selling The Reason. With Fornever, Hoobastank have gotten in touch with what originally motivated them, which has made them stronger than ever. Hoobastank is Fornever.

American Idiot

Review The romantic undertones of Hoobastank’s catalog are brought front and center with Strung Out on Hoobastank. The delicate string passages, which have already accented several Hoobastank songs, are given the opportunity to fully flourish. Is it possible for "The Reason" to be any more breathtaking? Well, yes. And the result can be found on this album, along with other select cuts from the band’s catalog. Strung Out on Hoobastank is best enjoyed under starlight or with candlelight. Buy this album and get "Lucky."
