  • Hoobastank:Dan – Guitar Doug – Vocals Chris – Drums Markku – Bass i just got this album about less than a week ago, i heard most of the album online as Hoobastank has it on there site. I was pretty impressed. It took me only 3 songs, before i went out to buy it. BUT.. i couldn’t find it at hmv and tower. They said there was no such band at all, and once again, the most famous line, ‘Hobawho?’ appeared! But i finnaly got it the next day.Hoobastank (originally called Hoobustank) displays a range of music. From a slow, meldolic song like ‘Running Away’ (A track which was done acoustic at the band’s album relase party with Ed Kowalczyk of Live) and ‘To Be With You’ to something more faster and hearvier like ‘Crawling In The Dark’ and ‘Pieces’. Every song is well crafted, and lyrics true to the heart, and with amzing vocals, guitar riffs and drum loops. Douglas Robb, has a amazing voice as most of the review’s have said, and also comparable to Bradon Boyd (Incubus). But a true Incubus fan would know, that they aren’t the same. I acutally couldn’t tell the similarities of Doug’s voice in ‘Crawling In The Dark’, but i could a bit in ‘Running Away’, ‘To Be With You’ and ‘Let You Know’. Both bands are very talanted, and both from SoCal. But if you like genarilizing things, you could say Hoobastank is Incubus without the DJ. I really think this band is going to become super huge. Watch out for them, and looking at them perform in the video, looks like their live concerts are amazing. A lot of energy. This is a must buy album. It worth every single penny. Especially if you are a fan of bands who play a wide range of music.
