Editorial Reviews

2010 album from the Alt-Rockers. Skeletons is an unflinching look at what has brought them to this place, executed with a firm desire to make the best of what they see as an opportunity for renewal by expanding their musical palette. Sure, there's the anthemic hard rock of 'Bring You Back,' with its aching feelings of loss, but there's also the Funk-driven '80s New Wave noir feel of 'Nervous Breakdown,' which describes the insanity of having your lives in the hands of the legal system, the eerie Johnny Cash country shuffle of 'Gravestones,' with Micah Carli manning the pedal steel guitar, the Pop harmonies of 'Picket Fences,' the unsparing look at a recession-wracked heartland and the epic emotional scope of 'Boy,' JT Woodruff's autobiographical look back at a childhood in which his family was abandoned by an alcoholic father.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great comeback from a solid band November 16, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
I will say I'm a big fan of HH over all. To me The Silence in Black and White is my favorite and If Only You Were Lonely was a solid second. I think the legal problems they were having, with previous label Victory Records, along with the death of their lead singer made for a weaker album the third time out.

Being a fan I was excited for Skeletons and it didn't disappoint. Because of their new sound and the stronger performances compared to Fragile Future it's taken spot number 2 as my favorite album from HH. A little more Pop-y, but powerful and meaningful at the same time. I'm glad to see another album from a band that I've enjoyed for years and glad to see them evolve and grow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid album October 19, 2010
By Ralph
Format:Audio CD
They've calmed down a lot since their debut album- I'm sure the death of Casey had something to do with it. Their sound is different without a screamer. There's a very small bit of screaming in End of the Underground, but most of it is pretty relaxed. The first time I listened to it, I almost quickly dismissed it but after a few more listens I really liked it. Pretty much every song is excellent and the album as a whole closes very smoothly with Boy. It's a solid album from start to finish. I'd highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love these songs! October 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I'm a HUGE fan of HH, and have been for a few years now. the song "Bring you Back" is brilliant and heartful, because of what and who it's about. I looked for days in stores for this album before giving in and getting it online.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love Hawthorne Heights June 18, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I follow HH on all social networking sites I belong to, so I was all about June 1st when this product was up for sale. I own every album they have ever made and none of their CDs have ever disappointed me yet -- including this one. Rock on Hawthorne Heights!! :D

4.0 out of 5 stars Huge Improvement! Way-ta-go! September 30, 2010
By DKN
Format:Audio CD
sounds really good! their back to their old sound with the exception of the screaming. all their fans will miss Casey's vocals, and continue to support Hawthorne Heights. If you enjoyed their first two albums Silence In Black And White and If Only You Were Lonely, then you will enjoy this too. it's much different from their 3rd album Fragile Future, which has more of a pop/punk quality. Skeletons has a good balance between instrumentals and vocals with very imagerial and poetic lyrics for their dark love songs.
