We Recommend - House of Heroes, 'Cold Hard Want'

Time to get retrospective with 2012. With our recent year-end staff picks, House of Heroes' latest album Cold Hard Want averaged in at third place amongst the entirety of the staff's individual votes. A couple listens to this alt rock record should reveal just why it connected with so many listeners. The HOH boys stretched themselves a bit, giving a unique and varied look at atlernative pop rock with this album. While it may not be as lyrically engaging as The End Is Not The End, it's still a catchy and intriguing listen; one that begs for many revisits. At a time when it's tempting to keep looking forward to 'the next big thing,' don't overlook this summer 2012 highlight.

Great CD! Quality music. Love their sound. Nice mix of slow and more up beat songs. This is what rock should have progressed to.
There other CD's, 'Suburba' and 'The End is Not The End', were also excellent.

One of the best albums of 2012. Almost all of the songs are highlights; great driving CD.

One great thing about it is the diversity in sound. From the fist pumping crunch of "Remember The Empire" to the atmospheric leads in "Angels of Night" HOH does simply amazing.
