Our Heart's Hero
Our Heart's Hero



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 11 tracks: 39 minutes, 4 seconds
Street Date: September 18, 2007


Formerly known as Fireproof, the guys of Our Heart's Hero are making their Gotee label self titled debut jam packed with pop-meets-rock riffs. Longtime fans will be glad to hear that all titles on the album are penned by Nick Joyce, lead singer and frontman for OHH. With this knowledge, fans and new listeners alike can fully appreciate the album with it's simplicity and spiritual message.

The album opens with "Save Me," an upbeat calling to be saved by God. "More than Everything" is a slower worship ballad which may remind listeners of CCM artist Matthew West. A little later in the album is "To Be A Hero," a catchy number that points out that there are those who are still lost and that any Christian has the power to share Jesus with an unbeliever. "Every Breath" can easily be labeled a contemporary hit, one that has the potential for greatness, but falls short of amazing because of it lacking originality. The album ends with "Angel's Song," an acoustically opened ballad that closes the record on a spiritually happy note.

Overall, this album offers little that can top any of OHH's previous albums. Longtime listeners may find this record a bit disappointing due to its overly produced songs. I couldn't help but be a bit disappointed myself, seeing as I'm used to hearing Nick Joyce's raw vocals on perfectly produced tracks that blend the music together without making it lose its listenability.

If you are listening to Our Heart's Hero for the first time, you will probably like the album if you are used to and enthralled by the basic pop/rock genre. However, if you consider yourself a longtime fan of the indie band, you might feel dissatisfied, but I still recommend giving it a listen. The guys of OHH have been through many member changes over the course of finally putting out a record on a well known label like Gotee, so any support is well overdue.

If you're someone who is looking for something fresh and new, stay clear of this title, for you're bound to find yourself underwhelmed by Our Heart's Hero's self-titled national debut.
