5.0 classicBilly | September 1st 09

One of two perfect records to have surfaced so far in 2009, Hollow Be My Name is an astounding peice of work. Arguably Australia's most original and innovative band, EHRL have put together a unique blend of screamo, post-rock, shoegaze and many other genres. Taking on the concept of colonial Australia, Hollow Be My Name gives the band vessel to express their loathing for systemized Australia. The seething vocals of Ian Lenton in the title track, "I'm allowed to curse him, If he's the one that built me, I'm allowed to use his fucking name in vein" are some of the most hateful lines put to CD this side of the equator. The band even provide their own unique take on an Australian cultural classic on "Toorali", however for moments of pure genius, one can't go past the closer "For The Commonwealth and the Queen", a true opus if there ever was one. Given more exposure, Hollow Be My Name would go down as one of the best alternative records in Australian history, it is beyond epic.

4.5 superbMojito | April 28th 12

Raw, passionate and at times just fucking dirty, Eleventh are a young Aussie band who are doing it right. All the songs rule, The Commonwealth and the Queen is a beast of a song. Get it.

Okay so I was wrong. this really lost it's staying power, but it's still good.

5.0 classicJoe Meland | January 31st 10

A post-hardcore classic. It takes you on a journey from start to finish, and will leave a listener wanting more. While everything is fairly simple, the emotion and feeling the entire band pours into their performances make this album shine.

3.5 greatOlDirtyPaule | December 11th 09

Pretty great post-hardcore stuff worth very solid 3.5 stars. Would have rated it higher if these guys would focus their ideas better; it's not a shame to work with refrains from time to time. For example, "I am the Bearer, I stand in Need" (or "Girt by piss", respectively) could be ingenious if the rather boring first part (or middle part, respectively) was substituted by the nice bridge/refrain offered later on.
Highlights:
Hollow by my name
Son, You're Almost an Orphan
Toorali
For the Commonwealth and the Queen
