Editorial Reviews

Due out May 10 on Dovecote Records is the latest edition from Hooray For Earth. 'True Loves' builds upon themes expressed in the band's critically acclaimed debut EP 'Momo', and captures both the personal and universal anxieties that have such a footing in society today.
'True Loves' is also the lead single and boasts thumping drums combined with blips and synths, surprising breakdowns and soaringly apathetic lyrics to rival the likes of MGMT and Yeasayer. Other tracks featured on the record promise to drive forward with percussive beats and zealous guitar rhythms.

5.0 out of 5 stars The next MGMT? June 27, 2011
By Simon V
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am recommending this album to everyone I know.

Hooray for Earth's debut full-length album brings enough diversity to the table to keep most people happy, which in my opinion speaks to a subtle lack of focus. This may not serve the album well as a whole, but by unleashing their own brand of creativity, the individual tracks gain broader unique aspects. Never a bad thing. The album as a whole has a very 80's retro feel.
Examples of stand-out tracks include track #3 "Sails" and closing track "Black Trees", which is a journey on its own. As for mainstream appeal, the title track takes you on a trip through the unexplored, while still letting you look out and bask in the comforting feeling of something that is both old and friendly. All you need to do is watch the music video for "True Loves" and see for yourself. My personal preferences nudge me towards track #7 "No Love" with a mild and sincere 80's undertone that pushes all the right buttons, easily making it my favorite song. Track #8 might be the most unexpected sound, with a slightly morphed happy-toned 80's feeling and a harmony that seems to match the chorus' vocals. Like you can almost make out the words from the music alone. Very rare nowadays, especially within this genre.
Noel Heroux has an excellent voice that evokes harmony and nostalgia, though possibly limited by a comfort zone.
Influences are hard to pinpoint, but I would have to say Depeche Mode and some Yeasayer. Overall they provide a synth-heavy yet instrumentally toned down indie sound with deep roots in the 80's and early 90's. When I first heard "True Loves" I thought for a second I was listening to the new MGMT, and maybe it just speaks to a feeling of disappointment in their second album. It probably is an unfair comparison. I apologize for the misleading title.
I expect to see this group evolve, and hopefully gain some notoriety.

I absolutely love this album so excuse me while I go listen to it again :)

This album is definitely a "Buy It"! The band has a way to really open up their songs and make the feel so big and epic. I am in love with Black Trees right now. Just saw them live in Raleigh, NC and they were Album quality live. It was simply awesome. Hope to catch them again on their tour in September.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooray for Earth - True Loves (updated) September 6, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
After a couple of months with the album, it's almost a grade A album for me. And, thinking of it that way, that's at least 90%, or more than 4.5/5... since we might as well round, I bumped this up from 4/5 to 5/5. It's not a perfect album, but it's just too good to keep down!

"Realize it's not the sun... realize I'm on your side (it's the sun, it's the sun)"

This is by no means a perfect album, however it shows what I see as a lot of promise and has some very high points. I'll base this review with some element of expecting that the average reader will be previewing the tracks, so... track by track, out of 5 stars (keeping in mind that I don't give many 5/5 lest I dilute the value of such a score and/or devalue the other scores with such use of hyperbole):
1. Realize it's Not the Sun (4/5): great intro to the album and actually one of the better songs on the album. Actually, for an intro, it's hard to ask for much more. The preview gives a pretty good representation of it.
2. Last Minute (3.5/5): a bit driving and flows well from the previous track. It's a good track but not the best. Although the ending in itself wouldn't be so bad if attached to another song, the fact that I find it eerily reminiscent of Lennon's "Happy Christmas (War is Over)" just makes me think it doesn't fit so well. The preview on this one is a good representation as well.
3. Sails(3.5/5): starts out ok and ends even better. Of course the "starts out ok" part of that comment is exactly what you hear in the preview so you don't really get to experience with that why this is such a good song. I guess it's just the "this violation, somehow doesn't matter so much" that makes this so good.
