So Hoobastank’s got a new album out. I dunno, my first impressions are mixed. It doesn’t reek of moldy vagina, per se, but you aren’t exactly eviscerated with pleasure, either.
There are some songs on the album that I genuinely enjoy. The following are two of them. The songs are a nice mix of heavy guitars as always, but Doug’s voice gets a little whiny, not so whiny as to classify it as emo Bullshit Confessionals whiny, but whiny enough to bother a little. I’m also not a fan of the prelude, featuring an annoying yelling drill sergeant. In short, the album’s feh; a mix of good and bad. Have a listen.
