Album Review

On the heels of 2002's enormous hit "Wasting My Time," Default took another shot at platinum by releasing Elocation. "Who Followed Who?" finds the group nicking the powerful drive of the Bangles' "Hazy Shade of Winter" and gluing it to a Nickelback tune. Speaking of the latter, Chad Kroeger helped put Default on the map and naturally is back to help out, co-penning "Throw It All Away," which aside from its title is a track worth salvaging. Lead singer Dallas Smith sounds like a mixture of the aforementioned Kroeger, the Offspring's Dexter Holland, and Creed's Scott Stapp. Sure, the band plays as astutely as, um, Creed or Nickelback under the watchful eye of producers Rick Parashar (Pearl Jam, Rhythm Corps), Butch Walker (Sevendust, SR-71), and Kroeger. Although Default's bastardized cover of the Jeff Buckley classic "Cruel" is brave, the simple devotional "Without You" is the most memorable tune on Elocation. ~ John D. Luerssen, Rovi

Customer Reviews

Love Default!

I feel like one of the only Americans that truly love Default. There hard-rock songs with mix of heart-felt soft songs can compile to make one great album like this one! I believe this album is disregarded quite often, but I really enjoy it! My favorite songs are:
- Without You
- Throw it All Away
- Taking My Life Away
- Who Followed Who
- Let You Down Acoustic,
There's a few others, but I dont remember the titles! I wish people would look back and remember the true talent these guys had. I still listen to them all the time!

Root for the underdog

Default is seriously underrated. Its defintely a more mellow rock band compared to more mainstream bands, but Default still manages to have a definite edge with songs like Throw It All Away while serenading you with heartwrenchers like All She Wrote. I love this band!

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Vancouver's Default fit the definition of straight-ahead hard rock in the early years of the 21st century: the guitar textures and melodic bent of grunge; the dark, brooding earnestness of post-grunge; and the deep, thick-sounding production (but not the rap influences) of new alternative metal. Default was formed as the Fallout in summer 1999 by guitarist Jeremy Hora and drummer Danny Craig, four-year veterans of the local Vancouver music scene; after auditioning several vocalists, they settled...
