“Yesterday I’ve learned from/Tomorrow is uncertain/So why can’t I just/Make my turn today.” “My Turn”

When a band has as much success as Hoobastank, the motivation to top itself must come from within. That renewed desire can be heard from the very first notes of “My Turn,” the first single from the group’s fourth Island Def Jam Music ... Read more in Amazon's Hoobastank Store

Editorial Reviews

After logging more than a year on the Billboard 200 albums chart with their Grammy-nominated double platinum second album, The Reason, Island recording group Hoobastank returns with their long-awaited third album, due to arrive in stores on May 16th, 2006 featuring the new single 'If I Were You.' Hoobastank delivered one of the true phenoms of rock's last two years with The Reason. The title hit, 'The Reason,' 2004's longest-running rock single inside the Hot 100, was nominated for Grammy awards as Song Of the Year and Best Pop Performance By a Duo or Group with Vocal, while The Reason was nominated as Best Rock Album.

5.0 out of 5 stars At Least They're Moving Forward... May 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
One thing you can't say about "Every Man For Himself" after a good, solid listen is that it is "more of the same."

From the opening song, "Born To Lead," it's obvious the band has changed. Like the rest of the album, this song has a familiar Hoobastank mark on it, but yet, sounds nothing like anything they've done in the best. Perhaps this change could be attributed to all Hoobastank have gone through in the past two years. Their last album, 2003's "The Reason" took off when it's title track became the biggest crossover hit of the year, and just about every other single got plenty of room on radio. On the flipside, however, founding bassist Markku Lappalainen left the band last year, which could very well have inspired the title, "Every Man For himself."

Whatever it was that caused Hoobastank to turn on a dime, I'm personally thankful. I loved "The Reason," but I find that a lot of the songs don't have much shelf-life, and that there isn't a whole lot to seperate it from their debut and the hordes of Incubus clones that have popped up in the past five years. "Every Man For Himself" isn't a complete abandonment of the Hoobastank sound, as songs like "Good Enough" and "Without A Fight" fit in with the old stuff, but the bulk of the material here is a bit broader. My personal favorite track so far would have to be "Inside Of You," a funky little number that is a bit reminiscient of their "Basketball Shorts" days, and shows that the band still have the ability to have good fun. The first single "If I Were You," a tale of karma based on Scott Weiland (the Velvet Revolver frontman, whom Hoobastank shared a tour with) sounds like an attempt to capitalize on the band's ballad abilities, as does "If Only.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now a new “reason” to buy Hoobastank May 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Like many people, if you say the name “Hoobastank”, I automatically start humming their huge 2004 hit single “The Reason”. For those in the know, “Every Man for Himself” is in fact the group’s third studio album, following the self-titled album in 2001 and of course “The Reason” two years later.

The track on this album that comes closest to the made-for-radio appeal of the aforementioned hit would be the single “If I Were You”, a ballad with simple lyrics but a lot of emotion:

“If I were you

holding the world right in my hands

the first thing I'd do

is thank the stars for all that I have

if I were you”

For rock fans, the tracks for you are “Born to Lead”, “Inside of You”, “Without a Fight”, and “Look Where We Are”, and if you’re a power ballad lover, you just have to hear “Moving Forward”, “The First of Me”, “Good Enough”, “Don’t Tell Me”, “Say The Same”, “If Only” (great song – hope they make it a single) and “More Than a Memory”.

If you were lucky enough to get the two bonus tracks, “Finally Awake” is a driving rock performance and while “Waiting” is a little softer, it’s also very good.

Almost an hour long, this is another CD worth collecting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Limited Edition? May 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The only thing different about this edition is the color. No extra videos, or tracks.....but who cares? This album blows 'The Reason' out of the water. They rock hard on this one, folks, and every song is just a pure blast to listen to. You can tell they had fun writing and recording this one. This is the 'Stank's best since they first showed up with "Crawling in the Dark". Like usual, the lyrics are uplifting and well written, and the instrumentation is simpl, yet highly effective. "If I Were You" is a better version of "The Reason", and "Born to Lead" is another great starter track in the vien of "Crawling" and "Same Direction". This is one of So-Cal's best bands, so if you like that scene (I lve it) then you'll eat this stuff up. Enjoy!

After seeing Hoobastank perform "Inside Of You" on the Tonight Show a little while back, I ran out and snagged this album. I didn't even do my usual fiddling around with previewing the other tracks on the net, I just had to have it. What a fantastic album it is!

There isn't a single song on this album that I dislike, which is more than I can say for most albums I've bought over the years. Some of the offerings are rather weak - I personally do not care much for "Moving Forward" and "First Of Me." They're not bad songs, but they're nothing special and not ones I go out of my way to listen to. The rest of the tracks range from very good to downright awesome. In the latter category are songs like "If I Were You" and "Born To Lead" (which has strong resonance with me, having been on the other side of the military fence for a while).

Perhaps the best song on the album is "More Than A Memory", which has an almost heart-wrenchingly beautiful quality to it. It is clear that this song was not merely written - it was created, sculpted, fine-tuned, and lovingly put together. This is truly a standout track, with the flourishes of accordion backing the guitar and other instruments, raising the music to very emotional levels. "More Than A Memory" is one of those rare songs that transcends mere music to communicate images, feelings, and thoughts.

If you buy "Every Man For Himself", you will not be disappointed. For fans of rock, there is truly something for "every man" on this CD. Sure, my personal pick ("More Than A Memory") will not be topping the radio charts anytime soon, because it's far too deep and high-quality for the lame popular radio stations. But there's also plenty of standard rock hits on here that will satisfy just about anyone.

Recommended, no matter who you are!
