Who'd have thought that out of the messy sludge that nu-metal trawled out of the swamp with it, a glistening gem such as Hundred Reason's hotly-tipped debut Ideas Above Our Station could appear from Surrey and blow everything else out of the murky waters? Ideas Above Our Station is a genuinely solid rock album of immediate quality. Heavy metal? This is precious metal--a true diamond in the dirt: rock without pretension, but fuelled by canisters of sheer emotion and raw energy. It's exciting, it's immediate and it will start a fire in your belly.

There are shades of early Pearl Jam here, particularly in the first single "If I Could", but such comparisons on their own are unfair--witness the gloriously deranged guitar of "Shine" or the restrained brutality of live favourite "Silver". The only trouble is their immediacy often suffocates their fragile melodies, whereas bands such as My Vitriol and Feeder have always elevated them to the forefront of their songs. What it lacks in finesse it makes up for in sheer dewy-eyed belief--there may be silver here, but they'll have to dig a little deeper to produce pure gold. "In my hands good fortune", frontman Doran near-croons on "Falter". On the basis of this, it is well deserved. --Ben Johncock

In the middle of the sludge of nu-metal tthat surrounds us at the moment this by-rights stratospheric album shines. This is one great hope for British music, let alone the international rock scene. With riffage on songs like Silver and I'll find you of ear splitting quality, but change to the Falter ballad and you will be stunned by the sheer beauty of this epic.If you have to won 1 rock album buy this one-it epitamises everything that is good music without a hint of the usual arrogance of other greats.
An unbeatable emo-rock record.Without this album your collection is incomplete!

i wish people would stop throwing around such phrases as "emo" and "hardcore". It's a rock album, straight up, and finally. I have to admit I am a big fan of the deftones, lost prophets, ill nino and other harder 'nu metal' bands. But I love rock music (foo fighters, hundred reasons etc) and for me this is the first stright up rock album that has come out in ages with no alterations to it whatsoever, such as muse, who r good but sing high and add wierd affects. The guitars are distorted and clean, nothing else. It's a raw album and it's brilliant. I'm gonna start by talking about the last track. it's a just a guitar and vocal and it's beatiful. The harmonies in the chorus, oh just listen to it. All the singles are great. Track 3 is amazing. Track 11 is like shouty then beatiful singing again. Honestly u want a rock album? u want this!! it's brilliant

Well not quite a hundred, but each track on this debut release should count as a reason in itself.
As standard bearers for the British emo movement of rock bands, Hundred Reasons have unleashed one of the finest British rock albums in years. Full of driving rhythms and strong melodies, this lot provoke a thoughtful mood as well as one of sheer exhilaration through a need to jump around the place, playing your air guitar for fun.
With a three killer singles in 'I'll Find You', If I Could' and the brilliant 'Silver', Hundred Reasons have delivered an equally impressive album which stands shoulder to shoulder with anything the US has sent us recently.
Hundred Reasons have an appeal which should stretch from fans of The Strokes, BRMC and The Hives to those who enjoy the melodic rock of Nickleback, Puddle Of Mudd and The Calling.
The best news of all, is Hundred Reasons have delivered an album superior to any of the aformentioned bands recent releases!

Its been a while since we've had a nice bit of hype for small band. Problem is whenever a band is due to release their debut and they're hyped up they usually end up flat on their faces, rueing the day they entered the studio.
Not here. Having already released the best songs of the album on EP (sorry couldn't resist a small dig), I was beginning to get sceptical as to whether HR could pull it off. But they have. The familiar crunching guitar riffs are there along with the growling vocals we've come to love.
I was going to write about how their live performances are outstanding (and by God I just have), but that shouldn't be taken into consideration when buying this album.
For once a Brit band that promises much, and actually delivers.

What an album!! From the storming I'll Find You opener to the beautiful Avalanche HR give a performance that combines power, energy, sensitivity and sheer genius. Musically it's not that similar to ATDI, although the energy's the same, its rather in a genre aside. This is one of my favourite albums ever-you can listen to this album all the time and never get bored.
Musically its top notch too. The interplay on guitar between Larry Hibbit and Paul Townsend is superb, and solid beats are provided by Andy Bews on drums. Buy this now.

Well, this release from Hundred Reasons was eagerly anticipated and had a lot of high expectations on it. But boy did it meet them. It includes the crowd favourites 'Silver', 'If I Could' and 'I'll Find You', along with the other fast energetic tracks; such as 'Shine', 'Drowning' and the heavier 'Gone Too Far'. At the other end of the stick you have a couple of more mellower, emo style tracks in the likes of 'Avalanche' and 'Falter'.
All in all, this is a must buy, especially as this band have gotten this far through sheer hard work. None of this silly American nu metal "lets jump on a bandwagon" stuff, Hundred Reasons have stayed true to their roots and are now holding the British rock flag high.
Oh, and they weren't bad live, either ...

I've not felt the urge to write a review before but after listening to this album I am gutted for the band that they are not as big as they deserve to be. If you are considering buying this album do yourself a favour and buy it now ! It's difficult to categorise their music as it has such a wide range of styles from the heavy tunes such as "What thought did" and "Gone too far" to the softer ballad (if you can call it that) of the single "Falter". Tracks 5 and 10 are the tracks you will most likely have heard before as they received heavy radio play when released and deservedly so. I can't stand U.S nu-metal and pop - punk and while this album has been put into this bracket by critics, it has a sound of its own - I guess because it's British. I have only just got into this band and I regret not giving them a chance when they first came on the scene. With a record label dispute behind them and a third album out in March 2006 maybe HR will get the credit they deserve. I hope they do.
