    Hinder are a tight hard rock outfit with a growing glam metal vibe and there's no denying some really catchy songs on the album. For fans of post grunge bands like Buckcherry and Shinedown.

    Great album. Fun listen. Moving listen. It is full of great modern rock with a ton of old arena style sound. Production is excellent. I like Brian Howes style. Not a deep indie ambient sound but a well polished produced rock album. Critics can shove it because you know what your getting when it comes to Hinder don't critic it for something its not. Great second round guys!!!

    i find that this album [and group] are providing the music industry with a much needed hit of classic rock which has been long forgotten. i love their style and Austin has the most unique voice i have ever heard, great stuff!!!

    With their sophomore effort you can certainly hear the growth and new strength from the guys. There are a couple of really strong songs here that will prob be lost to most people, but they're worth a listen anyway. Sadly, 2 really great tracks were left off of the main cd release but added to the iTunes version. "Heartless," while being another "love gone wrong" song is haunting due With their sophomore effort you can certainly hear the growth and new strength from the guys.

Sadly, 2 really great tracks were left off of the main cd release but added to the iTunes version. "Heartless," while being another "love gone wrong" song is haunting due in large part to Austin's improved vocals but also thanks to the strong backing of the entire band. The entire album is a great 2nd effort and it's worth a listen. They're even better live, so go out and get your tickets today! ;) Expand

  1. The repetition hammers home Hinder's stultifying lack of imagination and even that would be excusable if the group had a scintilla of sleaze but like anybody too beholden to their idols, they tread the familiar ground too carefully, winding up as bland by-the-book bad boys.
  2. Deliciously decadent, Take It to the Limit has even more melodic power than its predecessor, delivering tons of guilty pleasures that sound fresh and familiar and strangely exciting.
  3. If you were ever young and in love, dumb with drink, and had a head swimming with not just Boone's Farm wine but also Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, and AC/ DC (to name these guys' most blatant anthemic influences), you may be willing to forgive Hinder's lack of originality and preponderance of madonna/whore issues.
