Album Review

When Vancouver hard rockers Default appeared on the post-grunge scene in 2001, they were largely dismissed as Nickelback's B-team protégés. (Not without reason: Chad Kroeger produced the demos that got them signed.) However, as Nickelback have drifted further into artistic and commercial irrelevance, Default have smartly moved away from that particular sound. Their third album, One Thing Remains, is completely straightforward old-school hockey-arena-sized hard rock with minimal "alternative metal" associations: most of these songs sound more like a mopey Bon Jovi than anyone else. Only the Kroeger co-write "Count on Me" really goes back to that particular well, and it's worth noting that it's by some measure the worst song on the album. The rest of the album is fairly anonymous, but not actively bad, and some songs, like "It Only Hurts," are actually quite OK in a faceless Canadian hard rock band sort of way. Maybe Default aren't out to be this generation's Triumph, but worse fates can happen. They could be Nickelback, for example.

4 stars

The album review is crap, great band and Count on me is probably the best song they ever made. Worth the .99 or 10 for the album


i found about this band when i heard "the memory will never die" on danny phantom xtreme insider :), and i fell in love with it. i thought it was nickelback at first. glad they're only 99 cents because they're worth more than that. <3

Love it

Default is so underrated its not fair. Yes, they have Nickelback-like moments, but seeing as how Nickelback is wicked popular (and awesome) no matter how many people bash them, I don't think that's a bad thing to be compared to. Count on Me is of course amazing, but its not the only good song in the CD. Personally, I love Get Out of This Alive. I love it when Default puts some edge into their songs ^_^


Formed: Vancouver, British Columbia, Cana

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...
