We gave it a B+

Remember when alternative rock was supposed to be a good thing? The Verve Pipe do. On the first single, ”Hero,” from their new self-titled album, the quintet concocts an old-fashioned alt-rock cocktail, combining juiced-up guitars with sweet harmonies and a lyric that strikes just the right note of bruised humility (”I’m just a jerk but a hero’s what I wanna be”). This is sure to take you back to those halcyon days of 1996. B+
