Format: Audio CD
Mazzy Star's debut album is a dreamy blend of folk/pop with hints of blues and a twist of 1960s-style psychedelic rock. What really stands out, though, is Hope Sandoval's remarkable voice, by turns honeyed, strong and plaintive but always pretty damn sexy.

The most successful tracks are those with a more minimal backing to Sandoval's vocals, for example `Ride It On' and `Give You My Loving'. `I'm Sailing' shows a strong blues influence whilst `Ghost Highway' and the title track are rockier numbers. These latter songs are the albums slight weak points, the title track in particular outstays its welcome a little.

The lyrics match Sandoval's vocals beautifully - melancholy tales of absent men and unrequited love are steeped in the atmosphere of America's Deep South.

`She Hangs Brightly' is a lovely record with few faults; as mentioned the best tracks are truly exquisite. Recommended.

40 minutes of slow-paced alternative rock with sultry vocal performances and occasional psychedelic blues emphases. This elliptically titled debut album was recently profiled in retro music magazine Uncut magazine. It was enthuisastically described as, "the template for the band's music: soft focus, Lynchian and nocturnal", and rightly awarded a rating of 10 out of 10. It is as good as this relatively indolent group's one and only hit single - the captivating, much-covered ballad of 1994, 'Fade Into You'.

Soft lilting music that makes no demands on the listener. Melodic and delightful.

Mazzy Star's first album is still the best. I've listened to it since the 90's.
Both Vinyl and CD versions are good in different ways.
Be My Angel is my favorite track.

After finally getting round to acquiring Mazzy Star's three albums, I find this to be my favourite by quite a long way. That's not to say I don't like the two that followed, but the tracks here sound more like proper songs; rather than murmured, impressionistic mood pieces. Imagine The Velvet Underground fronted by Dolly Parton (well not quite! Hope Sandoval's vocals are quite unique, but you get the idea), a successful emulsion of country/folk meets indie/rock, all whipped together in a blender called `pop'.

This haunting, beautiful enchanting LP is a must have in your collection. The singer recently collaborated with the Chemical Brothers on their recent album and brought life and feeling to their empty beats!
