Boring, bland, pop-punk. Now that you know how I feel about The Hint’s self-titled album, you can choose to continue reading while I explain how I feel, or commence bashing me below. The choice is yours. The Hint is a trio from Washington DC. Sure this album has a slightly harder edge while remaining somewhat melodic, but its still pop. The songs attempt to be sing-along anthems and fail miserably. The guitar riffs are catchy, but they all sound like they’ve been used before in a song that likely sounded better. It seemed as though with every song, about a minute before it was scheduled to end, I was ready to flip to the next song. They couldn’t hold my attention very well at all. Two of the songs (“Neverend” and “Karen”) never should have made it to an album, they’re that poorly put together.
