This band will have a better chance of hitting it big in the US that Hedley, a Canadian band that sounds so similar to Faber Drive you would swear they were the same. This sound is sort of a cross between Nickelback, Matchbox 20, and Blink-182. Imagine Rob Thomas singing "All the Small Things" and there you have this sound. Because of the enormous appeal that this rock sound has, radio programmers and DJ's should give this a long look, because there are a few potential smash hits here. "24 Story Love Affair" is the opening track, and probably the best track, very catchy and up-tempo. A few songs drag in terms of length, but this is tolerable because the melodies are good and the guitars are cranked up most of the time. We could forgive bands like NEW Found Glory for going artsy-fartsy on us if the songs still had a hard-rocking vibe (which, specifically aimed at YOU NFG, "Coming Home" did not), and fortunately, Faber Drive does rock out enough to make this a CD that you can play all the way through and enjoy it from beginning to end.
