Great album with really good songs.
Gamer
The best song on the album in my opinion is the second song I listened to (and second song on the album) "Splinter".
Eric Janosko
Slow Drain really gets the cd off to a good start.

I still can't understand why The Exies aren't bigger.

I love their faux-raw sound.

Their melodies are catchy; most of the songs speed along at the perfect head-bobbing tempo. Lyrically they're not Shakespeare, but they're intelligent and sometimes clever.

"Slow Drain" is an inauspicious opener, but "Splinter" and "Ugly" are two terrific songs. The middle of the album is a bit weak and not as memorable (although I did enjoy finding out what "F.S.O.S." stands for). They save some great songs for the end, like "Normal" and "Don't Push The River."

I think if you had to buy your first Exies record, I'd get "Inertia"...I think the quality of the songs are higher, and the variety is a bit better. But notice I said "first", because you WILL get hooked.

Try and absorb the enthusiasm of some of the other reviewers, and you'll see what I mean...I for one will be buying every Exies record that comes out from now on...

The Good

"Slow Drain" starts things off with a fuzzy up and down riff and baseline. Stevens delivers a catchy and melodic chorus, while Walsh lays down a great wah-wah solo. The riff on "Splinter" is just as piercing and the songs theme of how someone can get under your skin. Stevens emotes a lot of anger vocally, but at the same time seems pleased with the pain he sings about. The albums first single "Ugly" has both clean guitar strums and driving distorted riffs clamoring for your attention. "Hey You" gives Dennis Wolfe his moment to shine on the drum heavy introduction. The subtle guitar work in the verse section eventually builds to thick riffing and powerful vocal release.

The lyrics of "Baptize Me" are full of those thought-provoking philosophical things that artist like to throw out there every once in a while. If you're not into deciphering the meaning of your music, it's a catchy rocker just the same. "F.S.O.S." (Fake Sense of Security) is loaded with meaty riffs and biting guitar licks. The only ballad on the album is the ironic "Tired of You". You may think it's about breaking-up, but you'll soon find it's the opposite.

The Bad

Whose idea was it to print the lyrics in a wave pattern on the CD sleeve?

The Verdict

You won't be heading for the door when you hear The Exies latest, you'll want to soak it all in. The group help breathe new life into the rock genre with unforgettable songs and addictive rock melodies.

I just saw The Exies open a show for Breaking Benjamin. I had no real knowledge of the band before the show, but was impressed enough by their set to grab "Head For The Door" at the merchandise table. I went into the club lobby and the band was there...and immediately thanked me for buying the disk and offered to sign it.

So I am already doubly impressed before I even pop the CD into the player. But then it was time to move on to the music itself! "Slow Drain" rips the CD broad open with a chugging baseline and instantly catchy riff, and "Head For The Door" rarely drops from that velocity. From the old-school grunge of "My Opinion" to the Velvet Revolver touches on "False Sense Of Security" that producer Nick Raskulinecz brought along to the studio (and that is a compliment), to the delightful, original "Ugly," The Exies rock hard.

The only slip is the obvious bid for video single-dom, "Tired Of You." It sounds so eager to please that its appearance sticks out like a sore thumb. It is, however, hard to begrudge the band their desire to climb to the success levels of Hoobastank and Three Doors Down. Just be sure to have your remote at the ready. But with "Head For The Door" and an energetic live show, The Exies will have them running. In, that is.

The Exies are awesome!! this cd is sick. if you watch the show The Mountain, you know they appeared on one episode and performed the song Ugly, which is my favorite song on this cd, its just frickin awesome. I had never heard of the Exies until i saw them on The Mountain and i bought the cd today cause it just came out now and i love it. The band has a lot of energy and they seem really amped and stoked all the time, which is a good thing. if you havent heard of them download Ugly and if you have heard even just one song you like from this album...go buy it now...it rocks!! ~hilarie*

When I first bought the record "head for the door" I thought it was okay; but when you sat down and actually listned to the songs and the lyrics they rock like nobodys buisness. I went to their concert at Charlotte during the month of Febuary 2005 and before they played on stage I had them sign my album because they were just chillin off stage signing and selling stuff. It was sweet. This album rocks till your ears pop. I recomend this album "for those about to rock."

I recently purchased "Head For The Door" by The Exies, and I have to say, it rocks! This is one of the most energetic, intense bands I've heard recently. And they do it without screaming like total idiots!! The style is characterized best by intense and flowing. Below are highlights.

"Slow Drain" - A disappointment as an opening track. Seems kind of disjointed.

"Splinter" - One of my favorites on the album. Very intense and flowing.

"Ugly" - The major single, apparently. Not as good as "Splinter", if you ask me, but not bad either.

"What You Deserve" - A decent song, highlight is the guitar solo, which is pretty good.

"Hey You" - Very kinetic, energetic song. Though it can get annoying after repeated listens.

"Baptize Me" - Energetic and emotional, somewhat softer than the others.

"F.S.O.S. (False Sense Of Security)" - Just as intense as the others, but there's a lot of swearing on this track that's sort of gratuitous. Not exactly a highlight of the album, IMO.

"My Opinion" - Another song that's not exactly one of my favorites. Might work well as a rave/dance club song, though.

"Dear Enemy" - Another one of my favorites. Intense bass beat, melodic verses and strong chorus. Like the lyrics too, for some reason.

"Tired Of You" - On its own, it's a very good song. Softer and emo-like, not intense and driving like the rest of the album. Doesn't fit in with the album at all, really. I classify it as "Hoobastankesque".

"Normal" - The first Exies song I heard, and my favorite track on the album. Intense, fluid, and kinetic. A great song.

"Don't Push The River" - A good closing track, but I think it should have gone earlier in the album. Intense, just like most of the other songs.

Overall, I'd recommend Head For The Door to anybody who's looking for an energetic, kinetic rock album that doesn't sound like a temper tantrum.
