This is Hundred Reasons follow-up album to "Ideas above our station". As it usually goes in the music industry, i expected this album to be nothing compared to the first. I was proved wrong. Its just as good if not better than the first one. Hundred reasons are a local band to me, so i once had the pleasure of meeting them in their early years, and its true nice people make fantastic music!
The album begins with "savanna" a song dedicated to heros of this world with lyrics such as "Get on your knees for saviours". There is no bad song on this album. Track 10, "Pop" sees a change of vocalist, which happens on the first album as well. It helps to give variation and depth to the album. My personal favourite song though has to be "Truth with elegance" which is simply earth-shatteringly good! It has power and you will find that u cannot resist bellowing out the words as you go along with it, fantastic!
Their two recent singles, "What You Get" and "The Great Test" are both on this album, so it does have some recognisable stuff.
Hundred reasons sound a bit like Incubus, with their more peaceful moments and their powerful moments too.
I would recommend this album to anyone, i have already done so to friends and family, who now say that they listen to it most days. Whatever mood u are in, this is the album to listen to, it can capture all your emotions, whether its happiness, sadness, love, or heartbreak, this is the one for you.
This album ends with the fantastic "makeshift" which is a very chilled what i like to call an "Autumn" tune. Very enjoyable indeed. This album is definately worth the money.
