I bought this for the Thrice and Common Rider songs mostly. I had never heard most of the bands on this compilation and it proved to be a good one. This comp has 18 songs of different genres of music. It has some great Hopeless bands like Thrice, Avenged Sevenfold, Common Rider, etc. I recommend .

I had never heard Avenged Sevenfold, Common Rider, or Against All Authority, and I was pleasantly surprised by all. I had heard so much about Common Rider and I have to say I wasn't let down by this song, "Small Pebble". When I heard "Second Heartbeat" by Avenged Sevenfold, I listened to it three times in a row before letting the CD play through, good stuff.
The few songs I've heard from Thrice have been anywhere between good and excellent. Both songs on this compilation, "Betrayal is A Symptom" and the previously unreleased "Hideous Strength" show Thrice's harder side, which I haven't heard, as I've only heard songs like "Deadbolt" and "See You In The Shallows". "Hideous Strength" is an amazing song, and I hope they lean more towards this style when recording for Island this spring.
I just can't get into Atom and His Package, the music is just weird. I know I'll catch some flack for this, but whatever. Some of the bands/songs were too ska for my taste (i.e. Mustard Plug).
So, pick this up if you're just getting into Hopeless or if you've only heard a band or two from their roster. A pretty solid compilation in all.
