Check out what Kidzworld thinks about the lastest album from the guys who brought you Crawling in the Dark and Running Away. Check out The Reason - by Hoobastank.

(2003 Universal)

If you haven't heard of Hoobastank yet, you've been living in a cave. This rockin' foursome brought you Crawling in the Dark and Running Away and now they're pumping out more hard-hitting hits with their latest album, The Reason.

Hoobastank - The Sweet Smell of Success

Once again, Hoobastank proves that they know how to rock - hard. The Reason has the same heavy feel as their self-titled album but Hoobastank's full, nu-metal sound has matured. This album has the heavy hitting sound of the 80s with a little pop-punk polish. The song Just One has "radio-friendly" written all over it - expect to hear it non-stop on your local radio station this year.

Hoobastank - Hoobastinks

There's not a lot that sucks about The Reason. The sound of the album isn't very different from Hoobastank's previous efforts. If you like your rock consistent, maybe that's not a bad thing, but if you were looking for Hoobastank to break new ground, this isn't the album for you.

Hoobastank - The Bottom Line

Hoobastank are the go-to guys for modern, melodic hard rock. If you're tired of pop-punk that's more pop than anything else, you need to check out The Reason. This album has an honest, authentic feel, which is a rare commodity in an era of manufactured rock stars.
