VERY GOOD STUFF ! 90/100 traditionnal STADIUM ROCK/HARD ROCK with some modern influences ! Like the perfect cross between late HAREM SCAREM & AEROSMITH with a strong focus on anthemic chorus like the incredible "up all night"! The singer is awesome and the production is Outstanding ! The 6 bonus tracks edition is worth buying ! in my 2008 top 10 Easily !!!

From: metalmastermusic Date: December 15, 2008 at 8:16
This is one of the best albums of this year. It has song huge chorus's, great guitar work and excellent vocals. Reminds me of a modern day sleaze rock band. I'm usually not into the mainstream like this but this one is a definite must have disc. I have the Wally World extra 3 track version and the cover of AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" is actually pretty good. Pick this one up !!! 92/100

This album is delicious. Melodic heavy with modernities kept at bay A LOT better than the previous one. I was positively surprised at first listen.

From: aorluver Date: January 2, 2009 at 14:16
P. S. I finally found out who the singer have always reminded me of He , at times, is impossible to tell, especially on higher notes , from the vocalist of the german band FURY IN THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE.

These Back side boys of rock are posers with a capitol 'P'. Where talking Jonus brothers with manufactured badditude. They look like they fell off the turnip truck from Oklahoma and are trying way to hard to show you that they are bad asses, stealing every dumbed down sleaze-rock cliche' and regurgitating it into dumbed down modern rock for the masses. I'm surprised to see positive reviews from our own Dan the Man as he puts this on his 2008 best of list. Here are words to live by... If Walmart has the bonus tracks of a cd chances are you should run for the hills if your a HH regular into quality melodic hard rock/metal. I'll pass on joining the Hinder Army(another original).

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: January 13, 2009 at 1:34
It's somewhat better than the first album, but this is like the 2008 equivalent of Slaughter. It's cool when you're drunk and more interested in watching dumb chicks dance with each other to it. Sober, it makes you feel kinda dumb listening to it. And totally aside from that, how lame is that drummer, trying to look like Axl with his red hair and blue bandanna?

From: Geoff Date: January 18, 2009 at 22:59
Wow, in a task that was almost impossible, they topped the killer debut, and then some. This is pure melodic/commercial hard rock bliss from start to finish. 'Best is yet to come' is a bit of a filler, but the rest is simply immaculate. Highlights include 'Loaded and alone', 'Last kiss goodbye', 'Heaven Sent', 'Thing for You' and 'Lost in the Sun'. But they're all great. Anyone critisizing their lyrics needs to step back, look at the site they're on (a "hair metal" site) and realise we're not dealing rocket science here. This is good, fun, harmless rock n'roll, just like what Poison, Pretty Boy Floyd, Tuff, Wildside etc. etc. all did and we loved them for it. Killer melodic hard rock disc, and along with Rockarma, my fave of 2008.

Good modern Glam album with plenty of catchy songs and a guest musician in track 6 (Mick Mars/Motley Crue)"Take It To The Limit"...the voice of Austin sometimes reminded me of Scott Trapp (Creed) and that's where the band can be folded into some kind of "nothing new to offer" act but that is far from true."Use Me","Without You"(beautiful),"Take It To The Limit",the AC/DC cover and so on makes this album a must to buy and a guaranted of good fun rock'n'roll music.90/100

From: juan carlos Date: February 4, 2009 at 23:43
I donīt think this is the best album of this year but itīs The Best Modern-Melodic hardRock Album 2008, Thatīs for sure. Hinder reminds me to last Harem Scarem Stuff on certain Tracks. "Lost in the Sun" "Last Kiss Goodbye" "Without You" "Loaded and Alone" "Thing for You".. Are great. A Must Have! 9/10

From: 123charpenay Date: May 11, 2009 at 13:17

From: poser forever Date: June 14, 2009 at 14:45
Take it easy guys. It's a well played played modern rock with some hints of late 80s hard rock but i wouldn't call it hard rock.The singer is screaming too much. Anyway it's not bad with some good sons like ''without you''.

From: WookieEnthal Date: July 10, 2009 at 4:29
Sigh...putting this on here is like trying to hammer a square peg into a round hole. Delete!

woooooooooooooooooooow awesooooome

Some folks with just can't see past the "modern" tag this band carries, but anyone who lets that be a hurdle is missing out on some great modern commercial hard rock that is so firmly rooted in the 80s it should be wearing spandex. Take the choruses, for instance: big, loud, anthemic, loaded with the huge hooks that all our beloved hair-metal bands would have scalped a kitten for back in the day. The lyrics, too, cling close to the non-serious, sleaze-tinged subject matters of the 80s, without ever crossing the line into the graphic raunch of, say, Steel Panther. The vocalist continues to be the worst thing about this band, definitely an acquired taste, but the music more than compensates for it, and let's face it, there were a plethora of hard rock bands in the 80s that were fronted by rough-around-the-edges singers, yet we loved them for their tunes. If you choose to limit yourself to oldschool melodic hard rock, then so be it, but you're missing out on a great album right here.

This rocks!!

From: Sam Date: February 13, 2011 at 10:03
Super duper cool, when a band gets a major label sound, everything else from the underground shows itself for what it is...which is nothing compared to this. After Nickelback, Shinedown and Bad City, another well produced album that carries all that was and still is(!) Heavy Rock in the Big 80's.

From: Doug Date: March 2, 2015 at 15:23
Hinder is not a band that I seek out, but this album rocks!
