Album Review

The web is all abuzz. After a year of selling their The Passage album at gigs and via their website, Boy Hits Car finally struck a deal with Rock Ridge Music to give the set a "proper" release. Then out came the worrywarts, concerned because the sleeve notes explain that Passage is a concept album, and thus presumably damning the CD to airwave oblivion. Guess these moaning minnies are too young to remember Tommy or Quadrophenia. Just because the set has an over-riding theme of exploring life's journey doesn't mean that the individual songs can't stand on their own. The glorious "Everything" certainly does, its rousing, sweeping melody and singalong chorus could easily be spun onto 45. The lovely acoustic-laced ballad, "This Song for You," is made for late-night airplay, the heavy-hitting "These Burning Memories" and "Tonight" for hard rock stations, and "Escape the World" could work there or during emo slot on an alt-rock station. Of course, not everything is appropriate for airplay, this is an album after all. The graceful "Windswept" is too "folky" in feel for American radio, but it's still a wonderful song. And really that's the marvelous thing about this album, although all the songs further the theme, they organically work on their own terms both musically and lyrically. But taken as a whole, it's even better, as the set sweeps across diverse moods and styles, and after one finally digests all the varied musical experiences, there's still the thematic concept to ponder. The Passage is indeed an epiphany of a set, and a revelation for fans, and by far the group's most stunning album to date.

Customer Reviews

Extremely moving and powerful album.

Like most of Boy Hits Cars songs they are heartfelt and filled with passion. Almost each song in this album emulates this. They accommodate to any mood that you're currently feeling and set you into a melodic trance. They are very much unique branding their music as 'Lovecore' which perfectly suits the genre. I cannot express how underrated they are as they deserve far more than some of these so called 'artists' within mainstream society.

Boy Hits Car - The Passage

Amazing album, from a truly underrated band!


Formed: 1993

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

In 1990, childhood friends Scott (bass), Louis (guitar), and CRegg (vocals/guitar) initially formed the aggressive rock sound they would create in the band Boy Hits Car three years later. Singing of typical teenage trials and tribulations, Boy Hits Car inked a deal to independently release My Animal in 1998. They were now firmly planted in Los Angeles during this time, but opted for another record deal and signed with Wind-Up Entertainment...
