    I know that every critic out there as far as i've read has killed this album. Being a legit hooba fan I think this album rocked. While it is predictable in certain songs, it still sounds like THEM and whats wrong with that? After listening to the whole thing through the other day, when it ended I flat out said.."that was freakin awesome!

  1. Despite this barrage of invective, it's strangely reassuring hearing the oft-preprogrammed Hoobastank break free from their constraints.

    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.
  3. 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.
