Hawthorne Heights: If Only Your Were Lonely
1

Sound — 8
Hawthorne Heights. One of the coolest bands ever period. Their music is some of the best music I've heard! They stuck to the same style of music in their previous album "The Silence In Black And White" and then they gave me even more than I expected. Even though a couple of thier songs can be overplayed I will almost never get sick of listening to them. Truely this an album you should greatly consider buying.

Lyrics — 8
As a musician I would have to say that this band has some of the most impressive lyrics I have ever heard. The lyrics go great with the music. And their lead singer J.T. is awesome. Their backup vocals bring the whole thing together though.

Overall Impression — 8
I have to say that the most impressive songs on the album are: Language Lessons (Five Words Or Less) and Light Sleeper. The coolest intro to a song would definetly be Dead In The Water though. If I wasn't so broke I would probably go out and get another CD, that is how good they are. And of course what is there to hate, it's Hawthorne Heights!

    dude classic rock fans are the worst. you can basically stereotype them all as elitist music nazis that listen to stone age era music and care more about whats already happened as opposed to whats happening now. and then they criticize modern bands for not being led zepplin or the doors: hello, no band is ever going to parallel any classic rock band in any shape or form, so dont even go there. classic rock fans totally annoy me, especially the ac/dc, led zep, and rolling stones fans. theyre the worst ones. at least the doors' fans are too stoned to know how to make me mad.

Let me be the first to offer you a warm glass of shut the hell up. No one wants to hear your bitching about how much emo sucks. I don't go blasting Zeppelin every second of my life even though I hate them. Stop whining, dammit.
    You just stereotyped classic rock fans in a very ignorant way. I get the impression that you listen to emo (like HH) so I guess that automatically have to cut your wrists and cry in your pillow. Don't stereotype, it's dumb! Another reason you can't bash on Zeppelin is because so few people agree with you and will get torn apart by every real musician on this site.

    hawthorne heights are not good december sounds like something the backstreet boys would sing the singing is so boring the only good song is light sleeper and the guitars are rather shit but you should'nt rant on them for not been good at playing because they ain't sayin they are it is sad though that talent is'nt very apealling a catchy chorus gets the average person captivated and it ashow hos fickle people are you should listen to real bands like Metallica Trivium Maiden A7X Slayer Pantera Guns and Roses Bullet Megadeth Dragonforce

    well with bands like Jet, The Darkness, and Wolfmother starting to bring back the classic sound I might be abl to enjoy new music. Hopefully more bands like that come around and make people realize the greatness of REAL rock n roll.
