I had heard all kinds of good shit about this up and coming hardcore band called the Hope Conspiracy... And one day I was looking around in a record store and I run upon it. So I thought for a minute and decided to buy it. I put in the CD player in my car and GODDAMN, it almost blew my speaker.

Dan Zimmerman has this point in his vocals where you think he is going to slow down and sing but then he picks up again with a brain shattering scream. This is most definitley one of the best hardcore CDs I own! This record packs a fuckin' punch and it will definitley knock you on your ass.

The only dissapointing thing about this CD is that it has just 10 songs and is only 22:11 in length. If you like shit like Converge, Poison the Well, Until the End, Buried Alive, or Ten Yard Fight you will love The Hope Conspiracy.

Easily one of the worst record reviews ever written.

[i]One day I went to the supermarket to see if they had an Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia. Goldarnit! They had it in spades! But I was prompted to procure some Vitamin C Cream with a hint of lime (As my friend suggested), and I'll be darned it if didn't cause cranial damage.

Jimi Hendrix rocked my ice cream carton like a madman and hopped right out of my speakers and down my esophagus to dislodge my tonsils with Cherry Robitussin aftertaste. I mean, Hendrix wasn't really there, I just decided to pull a random name off the marketing sleeve (Lo and behold, his seemed the most appealing at the moment).

Then Fight Paris came out of a closet filled with K'Nex and offered me a sweet hand-job (Which I promptly refused).

this album does nothing for me. every song is exactly the same. there is no way on this earth that you can skip to a song and be able to tell which one it is. gimme strike anywhere and bane over this.

Kicks some hardcore ass. The lyrics are very inspiring as well.

An awesome release from a very powerful value-based hardcore band. Just a shame it's so short.
