It has been said that there are three things wrong with rock music, currently: One, most bands sacrifice originality for safe marketability. Two, most bands place fashion over great songwriting. Three, most bands think production trumps heart.
But then, House of Heroes is not most bands. And if you had to pick three characteristics to describe this, their opus, you would have to say it is fearless, uncompromising, and heartfelt. Because "Suburba" is an album like nothing else you will hear today. And for that fact alone, it is a victory of epic proportions. Endlessly poppy, galactically ambitious, and dripping with honest, candid emotion, this is what a rock record is supposed to sound like. This is what a rock record is supposed to feel like.
