I kind of have to agree with Mr. D. R. Ashton on one point as I also believe that Hundred Reasons started off with so much promise. I remember seeing them live around the time of the release of the first E.P's; they were a great live band and went on to release a great first full length record. Personally I thought that the next two records showed a change in direction to a slightly more nu mental kind of sound loosing the poppy emo sensibilities of that great first record. I do disagree however with the other view taken by Mr. D. R. Ashton as with first listen to Quick the word sharp the action it was immediately clear that Hundred Reasons had made a conscious effort to try to return to the sound of Ideas above our station. The less mentally more melodic riffs and melodies are back here and the singer is once again, thankfully, producing harmonies on the choruses that equal those of Ideas. I feft compelled to write this as I always thought Hundred Reasons had sadly gone the way of such bands as Hell is for Heroes or the long pigs but don't give up yet and don't be put off this record by its so far one and only soon to be two reviews; if you like me enjoyed Ideas and missed the old HR then you should give this its deserved chance. As for this record being "whiney emo pap", I don't hear much whining or pap to be honest apart from maybe Mr. D. R. Ashton's review that is.
I give it 5 stars for nostalgic reasons....also to pull up it's unfair poor rating. Welcome back HR

No one was more pleased than I at the return of Hundred Reasons in 2007, especially as the band seemed to be getting less known somehow and details on a fourth album were sceptical at best. Fortunately they managed to release 'Quick The Word, Sharp The Action' as well as being able to tour a fair bit, perhaps not in the grandeur style of the early days, but intimate/insane small venues catering to their cult following. I recall a gig in Aldershot where the band members simply strolled around before and after the show, drinks in hand, chatting to the fans - most pleasant, down to earth lads you could meet. Its sad for me to say that I can finally understand as to why they are becoming an acquired taste instead of a household brand that they were predicted to become during the early 00's. The brand of music has changed one step too far into unknown territory which has got its positives, but also a fair amount of average, at times uninspiring, sounds. It was also re-released in 2009 due to complications with record label and rights ownership.

Instead of kicking things off with a standard hi hat countdown, grizzly guitar riff or atmospherical dirge, QTWSTA introduces itself with a piano piece. Nothing special but its a good enough track that showcases Larry Hibbit's singing ability - Again, nothing special and a bit nasal, but its still a rip roaring, polished track. Song 2 is what puts a smile on your face - 'No Way Back' the albums first single and probably the most popular track, is as upbeat as HR have ever been, rolling back the years with more lovely harmonized voices and synchronized guitars. "Watch us strive hard honey or there's no way out of here" grinded out by frontman Colin Doran and backed up by Hibbit's "you knoooooooooooooow". Definitely a song to savour and stand out track.

Hundred Reasons' are an awesome band. They have their own little niche in music and clearly define their style. 'Ideas above our station' was a brilliant album, as was 'Shatterproof is not a challenge'. The third album is always a difficult one, but 'Kill your own' was a brilliant album full of interesting counter melodies, and brilliant vocals.
I read a review for 'Quick the word sharp the action' on here, and expected to be dissapointed by the fourth attempt. However, when i listened to the album i discovered that the worst part about it was the title, and that it couldn't be longer. 12 songs is an average length album, and at fourty minutes i don't feel short changed. I feel that the album plays very quickly,because it is so good!
It is one of those albums which i can listen to all the way through. In fact 'Pernavas Iela' acts as a welcome bridge in the album to allow the listener to calm themselves down and prepare for the second half.
My favourite song is 'Out of time'. It is a brilliant outro to the album, as 'Breathe Again' was on 'Kill your own'.
I am glad to see that Hundred Reasons have not gone the way of emo/screamo, and have further developed the new sounds that we heard on 'Kill your own'.
If you didn't like the way the band were going with the last album, you will not like 'Quick the words'. However, if like me you thought 'Kill your own' was excellent, you will think their latest effort is a masterpiece.

Although HR didn't develop into the band many fans (including myself) hoped they would after albums one and two there is no denying their ability to write a decent anthemic rock song and the new album is full of them. The tracks are perhaps a bit more mainstream/pop but let's face it they have always had melody. I'd like a bit more scream from the vocals on the new album, but to be fair the vocals are excellent and powerful and to be frank they'd become a parody of themselves if they continued to add 'screamy vocals by numbers' like some of the other bands that sprung up at the same time.

Overall it's a great listen and these guys deserve much more airplay than they get. They and the album are distinctive, they sound like no one other than Hundred Reasons and more importantly they've been nowhere near the retro-bandwagon.

My only complaints are the complete waste of space taken up by the instrumental track and the Shredder. The former takes all the momentum out of the album (which is not epic in length so doesn't need a bridge/breather) and the latter is a token 'we used to be heavier' screamy track which is a half hearted attempt to keep the Lucky Nine fans happy (but comes nowhere near the quality of said band).
