Hidden Hospitals hail from Chicago, Ill. and they’re pretty much an iteration of Sparta. Their sound is influenced also with touches of Thrice in between. There’s a hint of Jim Ward behind the mic with the sound and vocal prowess, but of course, the accent sells it out. It doesn't have that mystic and ethereal presence of Ward but it's a good go nonetheless. The guitars and intricate arrangements are eerily akin to Sparta and "Atonement" exemplifies this. It isn’t a bad opener to deliver Hospitals’ take on a post-rock melodious endeavor as there’s a buoyant indie-rock feel with an alternative blend syncopated at times and it’s hit or miss. Nothing in between. "One to Ones" also lend an ear to that sleek guitarwork that I think I also heard on Trapt (kind of a gamble considering that band was a fucking travesty!).
