First Impressions: House of Heroes
First Impressions: House of Heroes
03/13/12 at 11:22 AM by Jason Tate
Sitting here listening to the new House of Heroes album. Man, it's one of those albums that hits me in the face with just how much I love music. I can just sit back and appreciate. The harmonies, the musical expansion, the obvious care and passion in each song ... it's a great album that really shows that you can write a catchy song without sacrificing anything. In that way - it reminds me of the reason I've always loved the Foo Fighters -- they make rock music without the compromise we see (or hear) from other bands. I really respect that. Great musicianship. Great care. Great vocals. Great harmonies.

Third listen through: could see me ranking this as the band's best album when it's all said and done.

Great songs.

Stoked. Suburba didn't really scratch the itch.

Dude, you suck. You're so lucky that you get to listen to this four months before it comes out. You've also raised my expectations for this record. I expect nothing short of an AOTY candidate.

That you have it and have listened to it 3 times, yet we're going to have to wait 4 months, is a travesty.

Bold review. I was sure they were going to suffer from the "too many releases, too fast" virus that goes around. Looking forward to the record, but I didn't have high hopes until this.

I'm going to hold my excitement until I hear it, but this is still great to read. I recall you enjoy Suburba though and I felt that was their weakest album, so hopefully we can agree on this album come July.

Having met the dudes 2 years ago for an intimate acoustic performance, listening to Suburba on loop, and getting my 50-year old dad to get into it, I wouldn't be surprised that the next one would be not awesome, but AMAZING. You, Mr. Tate, have made the anticipation off the scale high.

I love the Foo Fighters, but they totally adhere to whatever will get them radio play. They'll do something like 'White Limo' for their own shits and giggles and then do a shitty alt-rock number like 'Walk'
