Product Description

Product Description

Given their emo-pop influences and powerhouse female vocals, it's hard not to draw parallels between Hey Monday and Paramore. Cassadee Pope serves as the band's centerpiece, howling lovelorn lyrics with all the marketable grit of Hayley Williams while her bandmates pummel through power chords and group singalongs. Paramore's platinum-selling Riot! incorporated elements of hard rock, though, while Hey Monday go for a sweeter approach with their own album, which takes its sustenance from bubblegum pop melodies and well-scrubbed guitar riffs. Hold on Tight also benefits from the presence of S*A*M & Sluggo, the veteran production team that scored hit singles with Cobra Starship's "Snakes on a Plane" and Metro Station's "Shake It." Writing in tandem with those producers (as well as guest collaborators Butch Walker and William Beckett), Hey Monday come up with a number of radio-geared pop anthems: "Homecoming," whose guitar intro borrows from "Hazy Shade of Winter";" "Set Off," an us-against-the-world dose of adrenaline; and "How You Love Me Now," the sort of sonic guilty pleasure that inspires teens to roll down their car windows and crank the stereo. There's certainly some filler here, particularly toward the album's conclusion, but Hold on Tight is still stacked with enough T.G.I.F. nuggets to make it an engaging debut.

4.0 out of 5 stars Setting Off for the big time 7 Mar 2009
By Trixy
Format:Audio CD
Hey Monday will never, perhaps, shake off the Paramore comparisons. However, if you like Paramore, it's worth giving the songs a listen. The Hey Monday style isn't ground-breaking or anything remotely new, but it's tuneful pop/rock with the tiniest dashing of punk.

Highlights of the album, for me, are: Homecoming (this is their single), How You Love Me Now, Obvious and Should've Tried Harder. Their upbeat songs work much better; the songs like Candles and 6 Months have a saccharine, cliched feel to them. Cassadee's voice is perfectly fine at some times but at others it's sickly sweet - therefore I steer well clear of the ballards.

In fairness to Hey Monday, they have a lot of potential. I saw their live set supporting Fall Out Boy in London and they were pretty good there - they lost the manufactured edge to their music.

All in all, it's not a must-have of 09 but it makes comfortable, easy listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pop-rock perfection 2 Jun 2011
Format:MP3 Download
I don't think this album is aimed at me and it probably isn't expected that I'll like it as much as I do, but didn't someone once say growing old is compulsary but growing up is optional? I stumbled across this album by accident on its week of release in 2009 and expected its impact to fade, but two years later I still get a rush of excitement when the first track erupts from the speakers.

I rarely give out 5-star ratings but in the pop-rock genre Hold on Tight is, to me at least, outstanding. Every track is filled with energy, exuberance and joie de vivre, and I defy anyone who likes the lighter side of rock not to find yourself tapping your feet (or even banging your head), singing along and grinning like an idiot by the time you get a few moments into the first track. It's difficult to choose one standout track but my favourites are Obvious, Run Don't Walk and Josey. The slower, acoustic track, Candles, is the best known track in the UK (probably because it has featured in Glee)and is a lovely sing along.

Although it doesn't have the 'heaviness' of Heart, Vixen or Bon Jovi (bands from 'my day'), when I listen to this album I'm reminded of those bands because of the sheer infectious energy and gorgeous melodies in every song.

Ok, Hold on Tight is not going to change the face of music, and if you're after heavier, moodier rock (my usual natural habitat musically speaking) then this isn't the album for you but as unashamed pop-rock goes this, for me, takes some beating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hold on Tight.... for the sound of your life 23 Jun 2009
By Gee
Format:Audio CD
when i first heard this album, i was honestly put off by the whole female vocals thing. i mean, even though im a girl, and im always looking for more female fronted bands, the fact that they were signed to FBR just signaled to me that they were another paramore clone. how wrong was i.
i took the time to listen to the album, and my mind was completley changed. apart from the fact that they share a record label and are both fronted by females, paramore are nothing compared to HM. cassidee sounds amazing, and showcases her talent in a range of diffent tempo songs, which for a debut album, shows us that we can expect big things from them. all i have to say is that if you dont buy this album, you are seriously deluded.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly enjoyable to listen to 1 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
Although, as it's already been said, Hey Monday will never shake off their likeness to Paramore, I enjoy listening to this album. I was recommended this band after my friend found their MySpace and knew I'd like it. She sent me a YouTube link to How You Love Me Now and I loved it soo much I instantly downloaded the album and put it on repeat for a solid week.
1. Set Off - 7/10 Average, catchy and very sweet. Lyric meaning are a bit of a mystery though
2. How You Love Me Now - 10/10 One of my personal favourites. Very good idea for a song and an enjoyable rhythm and tune to listen to. Love this song.
3. Homecoming - Hmmm 8/10, their single, I believe. It's ok, very different to the rest of the album, being slightly 'darker' in comparison, but still good and interesting to listen to.
4. Obvious - 8/10 Lovely to hear and lyrics are very sweet. The singers voice gives me gooze bumps in this song, it fits so well.
5. Candles - 6/10 the singer doesn't do Ballards very well, and the bands style in general doesn't really fit. Not the best
6. Run, Don't Walk - 10/10 Also an amazing track. Very sweet and mushy, lovely lyrics and the singers voice sounds amazing.
7. Josey - 9/10 Strange thing to write a song about, but after just turning 18 years old, I can understand and relate to the lyrics and the ideas behind it. Good backing for the singer's voice
8. Hurricane Streets - 8/10 Lovely and soooo sweet! A true feel good song, using lyrics like 'Live faster, love stronger' - one of those types :)
9. Arizona - 9/10 Although the lyrics slightly confuse me, this song is one of the catchiest on the whole album. You find yourself singing the chorus after only one listen.
10. Should've Tried Harder - 9/10 Also an awesome song and an amazing idea behind it.
