Editors’ Notes

As legend has it, Hinder sifted through somewhere between 50 and 70 songs to pick the 11 tracks that comprise their fourth studio album. Add to this the on-record reports that the band’s infamously indulgent frontman Austin Winkler checked into rehab immediately following the recording of Welcome To The Freakshow and you have the kind of rock ‘n’ roll lore that makes for some top-shelf hype. But from the volatile opener “Save Me” where Winkler screams, “I’ve cut my demons loose!” to the closing homage to megalomania “Wanna Be Rich,” it’s more possible than not that such hype is legit. With “See You In Hell” Hinder have crafted a perfect hard-rocking, parents-hating anthem that sounds best when blasted immediately after slamming the bedroom door. Conversely, the sultry and seductive “Ladies Come First” oozes the kind of leathery sleaze normally reserved for Rob Zombie movies and pole-dancing accompaniment. Of course it wouldn’t be a proper Hinder album without such Zippo hoisting power-ballads as “Should Have Known Better,” “Talk To Me” and “Anyone But You.”

Customer Reviews

Not the same hinder

Since when did hinder becomes so weak? They talk about rock and roll constantly in All American Nightmare, and now there gonna go pop rock on over half the new album? I have been a die hard fan of their last 3 albums and have seriously liked every song. Now i can't find one song that matches up with any of there old stuff. Never saw myself saying anything bad about hinder but wow.

Too Much Electronic Drum Machine

I knew it would be difficult for Hinder to follow up a classic like "All American Nightmare". What I didn't know was that the band's 4th studio album would be a colossal disaster. Half the songs are dominated by electronic drum machine crap and could have been recorded by anyone with a microphone and a computer. Remember the cheesy keyboard buttons that mimicked salsa, rumba, etc.? This is the "Rock & Roll" version and it's not good.

Can this be anymore disappointing?

I agree with the guy who said Hinder has become weak. I have loved them ever since I heard them back in 2006 and have been to a number of their concerts and never thought I could dislike any of their music until I heard this thing. I like half of the songs so I did give it 3 stars but I'm used to liking the full albums so this just doesnt do it. What ever happened to such statements as It aint real music without guitars? Well some of us actually do feel that way. I hope its worth it to alienate your real diehard fans to try and gain a bunch of bandwagon fans who will drop you when someone else is the next big thing. I'm sorry to sound harsh Hinder but I'm not gonna lie and say its your greatest when your last 3 albums were so much better.

Hinder began crafting cocky, raucous post-grunge in the early 2000s, when Oklahoma City residents Joe Garvey and drummer Cody Hanson found Austin Winkler singing cover songs at a college party. The three formed the nucleus of Hinder, and the group started landing local gigs opening for such bands as Theory of a Deadman. Lineup changes brought guitarist Mark King and bassist Mike Rodden into the fold, and the quintet signed with Universal after issuing a self-released EP. Their 2005 full-length debut,...
