Customer Review

on 13 April 2005
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.
