This Is the End of Control is the debut studio album by American rock band Hey Violet, then known as Cherri Bomb. It was released on May 15th, 2012 by Hollywood Records.
In her review for AllMusic, Heather Phares declared "This Is the End of Control proves that Cherri Bomb is a straight-ahead rock band with talent, a rarity in the 2010s no matter how old or what sex the people in the band are". She concluded by calling the album an "impressive debut" and "while the band's talent should guard against them being treated like a novelty, the most rebellious move the women of Cherri Bomb may make is just being who they are". Brian Giffin of Loud Magazine Australia comments that "Cherri Bomb have been attracting all the right kinds of attention, and much of it has even been for all the right reasons". He describes the album as "a punchy collection of exuberant and catchy tunes that should bring a smile to the face of even the most cynical" and compliments the hooks the band writes. He concludes by calling the album a "pretty solid debut".
Zachary Houle of PopMatters rated the album a 6/10, calling the album "decent enough, with no real surprises and the odd clanger in the lyrics department here and there".
