I’m having a hard time trying to put into words exactly what Hooray For Earth sounds like. I’m completely dumbfounded by their sound it’s a milkshake of forty different sounds in one stretched over twelve tracks. This self-titled has me reaching deep because it really does deserve some recognition. Hooray For Earth take what makes rock and roll so great in its raw form throws in some excellent key board work and some vocals that I can only compare to the great Freddy Mercury and I assume they weren’t even going for Queen here…
I could write about all the songs and tell you how each one is fucking awesome or I could tell you about the ones you should listen to immediatley as you track this disc down. The first track that already has five plays on my iTunes is Take Care, which brings all the elements that I enjoy about Hooray For Earth and bands of their genre like one of my all time favorite bands Les Savy Fav.
Another track you should be checking out that I could see being played in the next Judd Apatow movie is Carefree another great, wish there was more of this, kind of song. To wrap it up, Hooray For Earth has released something so good that if you don’t already own it get it because I don’t plan to part ways with my copy anytime soon.
I give it a 9/10
