If you are an old Kill Hannah fan, this album is for you. If you are a new Kill Hannah fan, this album is for you. Hands down, this is the best album that the band has ever put out. Its got a great mix of some dance music with some heavier undertones. The lyrics are deeper and more dramatic then past albums but the overall tone of the album is still upbeat and electric. The term 'Wake Up The Sleepers' refers to the failing music industry, and this band is bringing great music back to the industry. This is a much anticipated album from the band, and the record of their lives so far. I highly recommend this album if you like to feel good, and want to leave with something more then just a band song stuck in your head.

Go to iTunes, Best Buy, Hot Topic, Amazon.com... or even their website, [...] to order the deluxe edition.

i decided i was going to buy this album after hearing only ONE song off of it at one of their shows. (not to say that the other 4 sneek peeks were not enjoyed). i went home that night and got online to pre-order. NO REGRETS! danceable beats, edgey lyrics that also have meaning.... who could ask for more?

First off I want to say that Kill Hannah never gets the respect they deserve. These guys should be mainstream, but maybe they don't want to, but their music is of high quality.

I've been a fan since 1999 when I first saw them at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign at a very small venue. Ever since then each album has gotten better and better. And I'm lucky enough to have seen them a few times in concert throughout their career and even attended an afterparty once in Chicago.

Songs: My favs are Radio, Living in Misery, Strobe Lights, TOKYO and Mouth to Mouth.

You will not regret buying this album.
The only thing that sucks (not for me) is that there is some swearing thoughout in a few songs which would prevent some parents from picking this up for the teenagers, sucks to be them!

Keep on rockin' Kill Hannah!

I have had faith in kill hannah since I first saw the video Lips Like Morphine. I normally don't buy full cd's because I usually only enjoy one or two songs at most. I decided to take a chance on Until There's Nothing Left of Us and was blown away. Played the record over and over. Weeks later I saw them in concert and realized they bring the energy whether it's live or on the record. After I found out about there being previous material, I had to find it. For Never And Ever was just as good as UTNLS. I had really big expectations for the record and boy did they deliver. I was not disappointed. From start to finish this CD is without a doubt the best Record Kill Hannah has ever put out and I swear is going to change the way we view life as we know it. So what are you waiting for??? Wake UP and BUY!!! You won't regret it

This album has a touch of what the older Kill Hannah was like from the various other albums that are available with a touch of a new style coming from them.

Radio I was able to hear live in DC at the Black Cat and loved the song!

New York City Speed has that dance club sound that will make you dance.

I found the album has a different side to it compared to their last album "Until there is nothing Left of Us".

Great album to get if you are looking for a newer style of music to add to your collection.

I have yet to find one song I don't like by Kill Hannah. This band has been around over a decade and are still going strong - and not losing steam. This album is a work of art, a masterpiece; they manage to do something that many bands fail to - make songs that are each individual, with their own personality. Each one draws different influences from different bands.

There are no favorite songs; each is just as amazing as the last.

Go on, buy it. You know you want to.

I am absolutely in love with this album. From the high energy in "New York City Speed" to the quiet sadness in "Promise Me", this album has it all. I can see that Wake Up the Sleepers is going to be on repeat for months. I am absolutely blown away. Kill Hannah have given us all such a gift.

I got into Kill Hannah with For Never and Ever. I liked that CD, but it was their next one, Until There's Nothing Left of Us, which really blew me away. That's still one of my favorite CDs. So I was excited for this new release hoping it would at least be as good. I've listened to this new one several times through now, and it's not what I had hoped it would be. I like this band, and I do enjoy some of this CD. I get sick of reviewers who are so in love with a band that when they put out a bad album, people act like it's gold. I don't wanna do that. Here's what I DIDN'T like about Wake Up The Sleepers:

The songs aren't as catchy as previous songs.

There's too much swearing. It just feels like it was thrown in to make the songs seem harder. The F bomb comes up way too much.

I don't want to hear the lead singer of Good Charlotte doing back up vocals on a Kill Hannah song. Mat Devine's voice is unique and sets the tone for Kill Hannah. I don't want them to sound like Good Charlotte, who quite frankly, have sucked for years now.

Those are my cons. That said, Radio, New York City Speed, Strobe Lights, Why I Have My Grandma's Sad Eyes, and Mouth To Mouth are my favorite songs. Snowblinded is good, but would be better without Benji Madden's guest appearance.

Sample this CD before you get it. It might not be for you. It's not what I hoped for, but I find that it grows on you over time. Kill Hannah still has a sound unique to them, and I like that about them. They're better than most everything on the radio.

I've been a casual KH fan for some time now, and snapped up their new album the moment I discovered it was out. I wish I could say I liked it as much as "Nothing Left Of Us," but it doesn't quite live up to the dark, dramatic grandeur of that album. Still, I don't consider it a waste of money by any means--it just seems a little scattered and lightweight in comparison, and I'm not at all pleased by the dramatic increase in F-words. That said, many of the tracks are developing into new favorites. The stand-outs: "Strobe Lights," which contains the album-naming line "wake up the sleepers," is a high-energy storm of existential angst and dramatic metaphor, very much up to their old standard. "New York City Speed" is sort of the new "Kennedy," an exciting 'live-fast-die-young' anthem-- or maybe that's "Tokyo (Dance in the Dust)." "Why I Have My Grandma's Sad Eyes" is better than the title would have you believe, and "Laika" is a touching tribute to the poor doomed spacefaring dog. "Promise Me" is exceptionally mellow and pensive for KH, sad in a much quieter way than its usual desperate angst--the story of loving someone by letting them go. I wish it were longer; I get the feeling it was a bit of an experiment, which I think succeeded beautifully. A sign of real growth, I think, and that alone makes this album worth a listen.

This is a catchy and fun album that's excellent for long road trips. Some lyrics are REALLY cheesy if you're a KH fan older than say, 20, but all in all it's still addicting. I've left it on in my car for over two months now, and haven't felt the need to replace it.

KH's best songs on each album are always the second track! Kennedy and Believer are my favorite songs off of their first two albums, and following this pattern is "Snowblinded." The lyrics are so simple that it has a sense of earnestness that I find very endearing. Makes me think of my last crush AND all of my friends that I wished believed in themselves more.

The tracks on the album vary A LOT in style-- it doesn't seem to have a single clear vision, direction, or even just cohesion, the way I felt "Until there's nothing left of us" and "For Never and Ever" do, but that doesn't bother me since it means that I never get tired of listening to it when I'm driving 150 miles home.

One caveat, one of my friends was driving my car and knowing her personality, I had to tell her to skip "Living in Misery" because the lyrics are so corny that I know she'd make fun of me for it weeks on end for it ("We are living in misery, in misery, but we have to hold on...."
