Album Review

The parenthetical "n" in the title of For(n)ever isn't merely a piece of clever typography, it's an indication of what Hoobastank's fourth album is all about, for For(n)ever is tied together by the notion that nothing lasts forever...or more precisely, whatever relationship singer Doug Robb just finished sure didn't last forever. For(n)ever is a breakup album at its purest, teeming with regret, anger, and recriminations but little guilt, as there's little question that Robb believes he's the wronged party. He finds incriminating letters tucked away behind the bed, discovers that "[The] more you speak/The less I care about you," wonders "Who the Hell Am I?" now that the relationship has sputtered to a halt. Despite this barrage of invective, it's strangely reassuring hearing the oft-preprogrammed Hoobastank break free from their constraints. Prior to this, they seemed more concerned with airplay than emotion, so it's nice to see their human side slip through.

Customer Reviews


Ive been waiting for ages for this album to be released. I heard The Letter a little while ago and just needed to hear the rest of the album. i LOVE hoobastank.

My favourite album!!!

I imported this album from the US on pre-order so it's safe to say I was eagerly awaiting it, and I'm glad to see it's on iTunes. I don't agree with the official review here, I don't think Hoobastank is "pre programmed" at all, they had one super-radio-friendly hit - "The Reason", but the rest of their songs are quite different from that, and very deep lyrically. This album is by far their best work to date, my favourite is definitely "You Need to Be Here"... also worth a mention is "The Letter", "So Close, So Far", and "You're the One". You won't regret buying this album if you like their stuff!


Hoobastank outdo themselves in this effort. The letter featuring Vanessa Amorosi is a powerful song and her vocals set the song on fire. A great addition to any library.

While the heavy alternative sounds of Tool and Alice in Chains were primary influences on Hoobastank's sound, the post-grunge quartet tempered the gloomier elements of such music with a suburban California groove and an eye for accessibility. Formed in the Los Angeles suburb of Agoura Hills in early 1994, the band's earliest members were vocalist Doug Robb and guitarist Dan Estrin, who met each other at a high-school battle of the bands competition. The two chose to join forces, adding bassist Markku...
