Editors’ Notes

Down to a trio (original bassist Markku Lappalainen left the band) since their previous release, The Reason, Hoobastank turns in an album with a leaner sound. That’s not to say they don’t still rock — they clearly do — but their approach has changed. Where their drumbeats were once plodding and pounding, they’re more nimble and dynamic here, and in the case of “Born to Lead,” deliver an unexpected four-on-the-floor dance beat. The still-catchy guitar riffs are less muscular than on prior releases, as the band moves closer to power chords and arena rock big choruses. They also pull off some convincing and well-written ballads in “Moving Forward” and “More Than a Memory,” both of which display the band's evolving softer side. They also bring a greater range of instruments to Every Man for Himself, most notably horns, keyboards, strings, and some acoustic guitar, giving an added depth to the band’s sound. Overall, it’s a more mature sound for Hoobastank, yet one which should still appeal to the bulk of their big fan base.

Customer Reviews

Great album

I've been reading all of these reviews and seeing many comparisons to their last album, "The Reason," however, if any of you have listened to their self titled album or the albums before that, you'd know that they were trying to get back to their old sound. The Reason was an okay album...it had it's good moments, but for the most part it was made to satisfy the demands of the label....the lyrics on most of the album are radio friendly and pretty uninspired. This album gets back to Hooba's hardcore roots, and unique sound that made them great before they hit the mainstream. Complete with hardcore guitar solos, great, passionate lyrics and performance, and (my personal favorite) an assortment of different sounds...toy piano's, flutes, and Hoobastank signature horns, this is a classic album from a great band who have come full circle. Great Album, stop comparing it to the Reason, start comparing it to the old, true Hoobastank.

Hoobastank - Every Man For Himself

It has been three years since Hoobastank’s previous installment “The Reason” and when I heard that they were putting out a new CD my interest was perked to see what this quartet could do and where they had decided to take their music. When the day arrived I was disappointed, to say the least, though I wasn’t surprised at my dislike of the album, in fact, I was expecting it. Hoobastank has come a long way from their first self-titled debut back in 2001 which was filled to the brim with energy and enthusiasm that I liked. While it was nothing new, it was definitely a good rock CD from a promising band. The next release in 2003 titled after their huge hit radio song “The Reason” was also good, though it did not pack the same punch that their previous CD had. This CD, “Every Man For Himself”, while it is decent, shows me that all the success has gotten to their heads. There isn’t really any standout tracks to me and it seems like on a few of the songs (I won’t name names but I am sure you can figure it out) they tried to duplicate the song “The Reason” in all it’s FM Radio glory. I am sure they will fool some of you, but I have better things to do then listen to a remake of “The Reason”, one of those things happens to be listen to “The Reason”, which on a whole is a better album anyway.

Like everyone else i enjoy Hoobstanks catchy love songs and for the most part thoguht this was gunna be another attribute to their collection. Well after hearing " If I Were You" i had a feeling that their feelings had changed. Their sound is different and packs more of a punch than any of their other cds, to be honest all i did was preview 3 songs, and i downloaded the whole thing. Im a broke college kid who dosent to that often, but to all of you out there that like one song on this album, youll love them all.

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...
