  • Summary: The fourth studio album for the California rock band was produced by Howard Benson.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 0 out of 4
  2. Negative: 1 out of 4
  1. Despite this barrage of invective, it's strangely reassuring hearing the oft-preprogrammed Hoobastank break free from their constraints.
  2. Formulaic though the album may be, the band musters enough craft and personality to keep it afloat. The band is at its best when mixing pop melancholy with strident guitar rock.
  3. 40
    Album four is especially monochrome gut-check metal, so flourishes of mellow pianos or cargo-shorts funk are as welcome as a bag of Skittles in a pack of combat rations.
  4. All 11 tracks feature painfully predictable song structures and lethargic chord progressions devoid of anything resembling a hook.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 6
  2. Negative: 2 out of 6
