Houston Calls' sophomore album, "The End of an Error" did not really stand out to me that much. It's not bad and it's certainly not a train wreck, but once you listen to it you might sense the feeling that you've heard it all before somewhere. The album is good, but I just wasn't feeling it. I do prefer their last album, "A Collection of Short Stories", over this one. You may think differently though, it's only my opinion. It has many songs with hooky choruses and a keen sense of fun and energy, such as "Modest Manifesto", "Things That are Happening", and "I Fancy Abroad", but also throws in a few songs that slow the album down a bit like "Stay with me Tonight" and "Behind the Gun." Overall, I think the album is more for the new fans rather then the old fans. So I'll say if you're just looking for a few catchy tunes to listen to then "The End of an Error" is for you.
