Customer Review

on 31 January 2006
Most reviews of Hope of The States seem to be focussing on the inevitable comparisons to Radiohead- ie. nice middle-class boys producing grandiose rock for the intelligensia which has a somewhat depressing tinge. Whilst Hope of The States probably fit this description they are definitely not Radiohead. For one thing the vocalist appears to be tone-deaf,and this is probably the main drawback on this album- amidst the swirling epic rock soundscapes which send shivers down the spine is this nasal whineing, which really needs sorting out if Hope of The States are to scale the heights of which they're clearly capable of. Not only that, but several tracks do sound a tad "samey"ie slow build up to an epic chorus/crescendo, which I think they could have avoided. But all in all a very impressive debut(better than Pablo Honey!) that most bands would feel priviliged to lend their name to, and to anyone whose musical sense extends beyond Greenday or Oasis- here's your answer.
