Sitting here listening to the new House of Heroes album. Man, it's one of those albums that hits me in the face with just how much I love music. I can just sit back and appreciate. The harmonies, the musical expansion, the obvious care and passion in each song ... it's a great album that really shows that you can write a catchy song without sacrificing anything. In that way - it reminds me of the reason I've always loved the Foo Fighters -- they make rock music without the compromise we see (or hear) from other bands. I really respect that. Great musicianship. Great care. Great vocals. Great harmonies.
Third listen through: could see me ranking this as the band's best album when it's all said and done.
