Jersey-based Houston Calls' sophomore CD, THE END OF AN ERROR, secures the band's position as a premier classic pop-punk band. Unafraid to stay true to their roots, the band doesn't chase trends, but would mesh equally as well on tour with bands ranging from Jimmy Eat World to Paramore or Panic! At The Disco. THE END OF AN ERROR propels the band a step further from their last release, this time sprinkling in elements of R&B, hardcore, and classic rock into their undeniably catchy mix of pop, rock, and punk. By the time THE END OF AN ERROR ships, Houston Calls will have sold over 25,000 copies of their debut CD "A Collection Of Short Stories," racked up well over 3 million plays on MySpace, completed 8 US tours, and shared the stage with bands including HelloGoodbye, The Rocket Summer, and Sherwood.
All that said, this is not a bad CD. Houston Calls has skill and while they lack the originality I look for in music, they do what they do well.
