Product description

Product Description

'Shatterproof Is Not a Challenge' is a huge step forward for the Surrey rockers. Intense, loud but dipped in honey-like melody, it is the album that will silence the critics, astound the fans & launch the band full-pelt into the wider musical arena. Every song is a winner, from singles 'The Great Test' & 'What You Get' through to the razor-sharp 'Harmony', the delicate grunge-lite 'Lullaby' & the immense 'Pop'. Brit-Rock has returned, louder & prouder, & Hundred Reasons are spearheading the assault. Their sophomore effort is quite simply one of the best rock albums of the past ten years. Anthemic, huge in scope & completely mosh-tastic... this is the sound of young Britain. 12 tracks. Sony. 2003.

Amazon.co.uk

The second album from Home Counties emotional hardcore stalwarts Hundred Reasons, Shatterproof Is Not a Challenge sees them consolidating the punk-rock revolution they partly sparked off on these shores: one that rejects the snotty rush of UK punk, instead harking back to American post-hardcore touchstones like Fugazi, Quicksand, and At The Drive-In. Hundred Reasons offer a poppy, mainstream take on this most defiantly underground of musical genres, but no qualms, they do it very well: the production clarity demonstrated on "What You Get" and "The Great Test" renders hirsute frontman Colin Doran's skinny roar in spittle-flecked high-resolution, and supplies an agreeably punchy presence to the twin-guitar interplay handled by Paul Townshend and Larry Hibbitt. And while often vague, Doran's lyrics frequently attain a sort of tear-pricked emotional resonance: "Sing this with me now/ Try to harmonise this," goes the mantra-like 'Harmony', gaining strength in every plucky repetition.

If there's any criticism here, it's that Hundred Reasons appear to have found a successful formula and stubbornly stuck to it: "Pop" sounds uncomfortably like a band ripping off themselves, and even a pair of ballads, "Still Be Here" and "Makeshift", appear to be tacked on just because that's what well-rounded rock-albums are supposed to do. In future, a touch more variety would prove a real boon. But in short bursts, Shatterproof Is Not a Challenge remains a bracing example of sturdy, cathartic punk-rock, and we very much suspect that's exactly what Hundred Reasons were after all along. -– Louis Pattison
