“Yesterday I’ve learned from/Tomorrow is uncertain/So why can’t I just/Make my turn today.” “My Turn”

When a band has as much success as Hoobastank, the motivation to top itself must come from within. That renewed desire can be heard from the very first notes of “My Turn,” the first single from the group’s fourth Island Def Jam Music ... Read more in Amazon's Hoobastank Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Every song a winner. 3 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The biggest accusation levelled at Hoobastank is that they sound how Incubus now sound.
True, on some tracks, you'd be forgiven for thinking Brandon Boyd was guesting. But this is the only nag about what is a very accomplished album.
The awesome single "Crawling in the Dark" kicks things off and sets the precedent for an album full of energy, emotion and good tunes.

Pigeon holing them would be doing them a a dis-service. For references sake, they probably sit in the nu - metal category, but Hoobastank are different from alot of the more modern metal acts currenly flooding over from the states.
The guitarist has his own style, the songs are written from a more basic punk origin and combined with metal stylings.

Basically, Hoobastank are a very good rock band.
They're not the most original and certainley aren't breaking any new ground, but check them if you like nice, unpretensious, uncomplicated, well written, sometimes well heavy and always tuneful contemporary rock songs.
An ideal pick me up for those long winter nights or a soundtrack to next summer.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last... 21 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
In a world full of repetitive choruses and recycled riffs, the music industry has been long in the waiting of a band such as Hoobastank. With their eponymous debut, this album is certainly not one to be missed, with such hits as "Running Away", "Ready For You", and the released single "Crawling In The Dark", this album is complete from the effects-ridden guitar to the rhymthmic bass lines, and Doug Robb's powerful catchy lyrics. In essence, buy this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!!!!!!! 5 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I first hear about this band when I knew they were supporting incubus. As I was going to see incubus I wanted to hear some songs by the support band. I was really impressed with what I heard and even more so after I saw them live (obviously they weren't as good as incubus) I started to listen to the album again after seeing them live and realised how good it was. All the tracks are good with the standouts being the single "crawling in the dark", "pieces" "up and gone" and "remember me" If you like incubus you should like this album

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent album 31 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album after having heard them live at the apollo, during their european tour with incubus. There isnt a song on it that i dont like, but in particular i like 'running away', 'up and gone' and 'pieces' and obviously 'crawling int the dark'. For htose of you who are familiar with Incubus, their style of music on this album, is like a mixture of 'Make Youself' and 'SCIENCE', melodic and yet quite loud. I guarentee Hoobastank are going to be big, and i cant wait to listen to their other albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could Hoobastank be making themselves? 5 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A couple of months ago I read the name Hoobastank on a rock/metal web page and decided to find out more about this band...boy was that a good idea!
First listen to their latest material (their self titled album) may well conjure up hasty similarities to Incubus and I suppose you'd be right (especially vocally from Doug). This is not so surprising as they both come from the same music scene and are good friends. This similarity though is definitely NOT a bad thing, and they certainly stand their own ground here. One big difference is that Hoobastank don't have a DJ in their midst which again is certainly not a bad thing.
The opening track "Crawling In The Dark" is a good choice...energetic, good harmonies and a great groove. You can't help but get a big smile on your face listening to it, knowing exactly how it would look and sound in the live environment. From there on in the album does not disappoint the listening. Unlike some bands that have come out as of late (mentioning no names) the tracks on this album do not just follow the same formula over and over again. There is good variety and diversity throughout, from the faster "Pieces", slower moments on "Too Little Too Late" & "To Be With You" and all out groove/funk on "Crawling In The Dark", "Better" and "Give It Back".
This is a very good album and comes across to the listener as a very positive, uplifting experience. You can tell that these guys have been together a long time (since 1994) and it will be a crying shame if they get overlooked as a simple "Incubus-a-like" cheap imitation - this they certainly are not!
Buy this album...NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars Emmense 22 Jan 2002
Format:Audio CD
Hooberstank are amazing but people try to knock them down with saying they sound like Incubus. Incubus is one of my favorite bands and before Hooberstank there was only one Incubus but now there are two so being an Incubus fan i think it's great someone has gone out and updated their sound. Great Music!!!!! BUY IT NOW if you love Incubus and if you don't buy it anyway cause it is a brilliant album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Building Up To Nothing 13 April 2005
Format:Audio CD
Hoobastank have long been a favourite of mine. I bought the reason first, and lo and behold, it was wonderful. I don't know anyone else who liked it. Then, I heard Pieces, and knew this was for me.
Crawling in the Dark is an excellent song, and one of the greatest openers of all time, excellent tempo and an intensity that rivals System of a Down among others. You listen to it and think 'maybe Hoobastank will be the band to make Emo into a credible genre'.
Remember Me is my favourite song on this album. It drops the albums pace wonderfully without making it so totally different you can't like it as well as Crawling in the Dark. Lyrically, it's wonderful too.
Running Away is good, it seems to drop tempo even more, and you begin to worry that the album is calming down and the rest of it will be acoustic like this. Really, they're lulling you into a false sense of security, because Pieces will blow you away. Siren guitars and a screamalong chorus makes you wish you were in a mosh pit every time you hear it. One of the greatest songs of all time, perfectly sang, played and worded.
Alas, after that, no song is worthy of mention. The album trails off into oblivion, and I'm sad to say Hoobastank may do the same.
