Houston Calls

A Collection Of Short Stories

Drive-Thru 6076836342

Released on August 9, 2005

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

“Houston Calls is undeniably a pop punk band—crunchy, catchy, and energetic, they remind me of an older Midtown (though poppier) with strong hints of Motion City Soundtrack and Hello Goodbye, especially with their incorporation of synths and pianos. Thick, yet crisp, guitars and drums perfectly compliment the dynamic, powerful vocals, harmonies are plentiful, and the sugary melodies are sure to please any fan of power-pop. While no new ground is being broken with this release, these guys play pop punk about as well as it can be played, and the album should be enjoyed for what it is: a collection of fun, fast paced, pop rock songs... Houston Calls’ A Collection of Short Stories is a staggering debut, bound to help Rushmore/Drive Thru get back on the right track. As previously mentioned, the album as a whole is fairly homogenous, which is one of its few shortcomings, but virtually every song is solid, so it’s not that the music is bad by any means, it’s just a little too similar at times. If you’re looking for an energetic, refined, pop punk album full of hooks and memorable melodies, ‘A Collection of Short Stories’ is the album you’ve been waiting for.” - Rohan Kohli /
