If you thought H20's Go was a pretty abysmal disc, you're going to wince in agnoy once you hear Hazen St. Hazen St is a "super-group" (if you want to call them that...) featuring Toby Morse of H20, Mackie Jayson of Cro-Mags, and Freddy Cricien of Madball (out of jail and ready to record). Now, wi.
If you thought H20's Go was a pretty abysmal disc, you're going to wince in agnoy once you hear Hazen St.
"We lead but never follow / Not like you / And I will never live by your rules, no! / Your words to me are shallow / They're just like you"then you're gonna feel right at home. Everyone else who got sick of this kinda crap ever since it started showing up decades ago will just be bored, hopefully the majority of you are apart of the latter.
It also really makes me wonder how Toby and Freddy don't feel completely embarrassed singing songs like "Fool The World", "Sorry", and "All That". Even if you weren't fans of their previous work, you have to admit that they're capable of writing much better then any of this tripe. To go from being some of the most well recognized NYC hardcore acts to a band that is on the same level as Good Charlotte really has to make one stop and think. Maybe they just wanted to make a fast buck, either way I can't see anyone being proud of them for this. Listening to this disc is about as much fun as watching "Warped Wednesday" on FUSE staring The Starting Line.
If you're really curious to hear this record, please get it used or something. In the end you're probably only going to play it to laugh at it, and that alone isn't worth 14 bucks. What you end up with here is yet another power pop-punk band, but this time the vocals are ridiculous out of place. MTV may fool the kids into thinking that this is punk music, but they can't fool me.
