what can i say? this cd is beyond words. most of the rock music today is based on the singers bein pissed off at someone and mad at the world but Hoobastank is different. Douglas Robb sings with so much emotion that you feel like he's acually been through what he's singing about. here's my breakdown of the songs:
1. Same Direction- Great song and the right song to open the cd with
2. Out of Control- First single off the album. i loved it when i first heard it but it's overplayed. the only song about frustration
3. What Happened to Us- Different beat but it grows on you. great lyrics about a relationship falling apart
4. Escape- drums at the beginning are awesome. one of my favorite songs
5. Just One- song about wanting one chance to prove yourself. very encouraging
6. Lucky- this songs okay. kinda about floating on cloud 9 after finding someone you love. could be longer cause its too short
7. From the Heart- beautiful song about rebuilding dreams when no one else believed in you
8. The Reason- i listened to this song over and over again. Robb sings this rock ballad with so much emotion that you almost feel his pain and longing. Lyrics about changing for someone you love
9. Let It Out- good song between The Reason and Unaffected. a fun upbeat song but too repetitive.
10. Unaffected- second favorite song. i definetly connect with the song about people judging you before they ever meet you
11. Never There- upbeat song that says whenever i need you you're not there.
12. Disappear- 3rd favorite song. love the lyrics and everything about it. about a person who makes everything better when they're around you.
Buy this cd. its worth more then the 10 bucks you'll pay for it.

First off, I'd like to say that I ahve not really been a fan of Hoobastank. A lot of the songs on their self titled album sounded too similiar. The CD only had about 6 or 7 good songs on the CD.
The Reason is much mcuh better then Hoobastanks previous albums. I don't skip any of the songs. It is always in my CD player, day and night. This CD has much more distinguished guitar riffs and choruses.
Same Direction - A great opening track. Great guitar riffs. One of my favorites. 9.5/10
Out Of Control - The first single is very fast paced and fun. It makes out want to get up and do something right away but then to lay back down cause you want to listen to the CD. 9/10
What Happened To Us? - A t first this sounds like it's going to be a great track but then it changes tempo way to fast to actually sound good. Other then that the song is good. 8/10
Escape - This song sounds like a fast paced 3 Doors Down song. Very different from any previous song. 8.5/10
Just One - The intro to this song is very good. Too bad the chorus isn't as good. 8/10
Lucky - This song sounds really complete. Very good. 8.5/10
From the Heart - Again and amazing intro. But this time the chorus is also good. 9/10
The Reason - Now this is definately the best song on the CD. The style is very different from any other song by Hoobastank. It willprobably be the second release from this album. 10/10
Let It Out - A great hard song. It also sounds very good between "The reason" and "Unaffected". 8.5/10
Unaffected - One of my favorites by Hoobastank ever. The guitar is amazing and makes this track stand out. 9.5/10
Never There - A lot of other people don't like this song but I love it. The best hard song on the CD. 9.

Very rarely does a band put out an album that you can listen to from beginning to end without skipping tracks. This time around I think Hoobastank really proved their potential with this album, it's pretty unfortunate that they're an underrated band but the quality of music is amazing, unlike their self-titled debut, there's more consistency to "The Reason". If you like music that's aggressive and can hold that aggressiveness even on the softer tracks, then there's no reason why you should pass this one up.
01. Same Direction - (5/5) - Great opener, it begins semi-light with a few strings but kicks in with a nice riff. The entire song is pretty energized and fast paced so I doubt it's something to get tired of.
02. Out Of Control - (4/5) - The first single from the album, I think it's a pretty good track though, like most singles, they get old really fast. If you've had enough of its airplay then just skip it and come back to it later, many of the other tracks could've surpassed this one as the first single.
03. What Happened To Us - (5/5) - One of my absolute favorites, it could be dubbed as the 'the typical soft rock song' but the chorus blows everything away. The strings on this track were pretty impressive as well. -- Should be the second single.
04. Escape - (4/5) - Okay there's always the song we tend to skip because the intro isn't catchy enough so we think it's a weak song, 'Escape' gets everything from the chorus, just like many other songs, the lyrics and bridges in between might seem a bit boring but in the end it's more than worth a listen, great vocals.
05. Just One - (5/5) - Another one of the favorites, if not the best track on the entire album.
