The album shines with psychologically revealing songs like "Bendy" and "Hear me Out". The opening track "Bendy" does an excellent job of setting the mood for Resolution. It more or less chronicles the band's journey and serves as a big `thank you' to all of their fans. It recaptures vocalist Joe Reo's trip back to the past when he was the "boy in the front row singing his heart out". After the band's breakup, the lyrics "it's a long way back home from here" seem to make so much more sense. The lyrics alone are very personal which creates a very intimate connection between the band and their fans. "Hear me out", the final cut on the album, is a delicate but ultimately uplifting track that sums up the album with watery eyes.
Resolution is solid - I mean really solid - it rocks from start to finish. Resolution is raw, melodic and full of feeling. The album refuses to tire or wane through a series of catchy choruses and powerful energy. The down point of the album is the realization that it is their last. It is far and away their best release to date.

But I was excited to hear that the last album would be coming out on July 24th 2007. Especially since that's my birthday.
If you were always a fan of this band, this is definatly the CD of theres to own. It's a rock / emo masterpiece.
My personal favorite track was #4 wich was "Heavy Breathing" and it includes other great songs such as "Bendy" but overall this album left me breathless and took me to a place I havent been in a long time, it's so amazing.
Life in Dreaming and "Resolution" does not disappoint one bit. The
minute you pop the cd in and "Bendy" comes over the speakers, you're
in. The strong beats and catchy hooks will leave you singing the song
all day long. It's that good. The rest of the cd is strong and shows a
mature growth in the band in the past 2 years. This cd is both
lyrically and musically stronger than "Life in Dreaming". It's a shame
that I will never get to see them perform any of this material live
since they broke up in January. Perhaps that's why they named the cd
"Resolution", to give fans some closer. I think they succeeded.
I'm guessing anyone who likes Boys Like Girls, the second All-American Rejects album, and Jimmy Eat World's faster songs, will love this. both singers sound very similar to the shrilly Boys Like Girls dude. high energy power pop, utterly pleasant. drummer is excellent, lots of great double bass stuff really drives the songs. too bad they broke up apparently?

Resolution is the very impressive, mature, second full-length album from Hidden In Plain View. I was a big fan of their first album, Life in Dreaming, and I am an even bigger fan... Read morePublished on June 12, 2008 by nk326
