Album Review

With a Hefty bag full of hooks and plenty of crunchy guitars, rocker Will Hoge can hardly do wrong, even if his lyrics add up to not that much. It is quite obvious Hoge is using his songs to exorcise his own personal frustrations (the details are all too perfect anyway). In "She Don't Care," he, a bar-hanging low life, pines for the well-dressed bombshell across the street. By "Let Me Be Lonely," the relationship has fallen flat and he sees her as a big phony, and even if he swears "I'm Over You," he has a tough time convincing even himself. It makes for an interesting story to follow, but not all that enlightening, considering how many times you've already heard it, or lived it. Guitar geeks, though, will love the strident playing of Hoge's friend Dan Baird.
