Back in 1997 I bought "Middle Of Nowhere" on the strength of MMMBop and that risk paid off. "Middle Of Nowhere" was an exceptionally good album that completely surpassed my expectations. Since then I have bought "Three Car Garage", "Snowed In", and "Live From Albertane" by Hanson and all have been incredibly good. But only now has the second studio album arrived - and BOY was it worth the wait. Like "Three Car Garage" and unlike "Middle Of Nowhere" Hanson are credited as being the sole writers on this album and it is all for the better. The songs are amazing and Taylor's voice is sounding absolutely outstanding. The highlights of the album have to be the single "If Only", and also "This Time Around", "Save Me" (with Taylor's vocals making hairs stand on end), "Sure About It", and "A Song To Sing", but there's not a bad track. This album is not so much better as "Middle Of Nowhere", as an incredible progression demonstrating the amazing talents these brothers have. I suggest that no one be without it. Thanks very much, Isaac, Taylor and Zac for producing such an amazing album, it was well worth the wait!
