If Hanson hadn't become famous when they did, and if in fact this was their first album, lots of people would be nagging their friends to listen to it and remarking on how talented they are. However, Hanson suffered after their "Mmmm Bop" track by being placed firmly into the "brat" catagory (probably partly also to do with some un-wise cocky comments by Zac in some interviews at the time!). I admit that's exactly how i thought of them anyway. So, imagine my embarrassment when i heard "this time around" and "if only" and not only liked them but couldn't stop singing the tunes in my head! But i got over it, bought the album and really would urge fellow sceptics to listen to it through before dismissing it. The three Hanson brothers are rare in that they are very young, EXTREMELY musically talented and write their own material. I for one would rather listen to their albums over any mass-produced, mindless girlie or boy band. (so that's Hanson already one step ahead of 70% of the charts!) Listen to this album...you might well be surprised.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very impressive! 1 May 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars The new album from the brothers hanson! 7 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
On hearing the first track, YOU NEVER KNOW, you wonder what other styles of music that Hanson have experimented with on this new album. The bridge of RUNAWAY RUN is just to die for and the American drawl of Taylor on SAVE ME is just absolutely fantastic. IN THE CITY shows that the boys are growing up somewhat as this song is about adultery and the type of things that go on in the city basically! Then we end the album with A SONG TO SING and boy is that a song to finish an album off with! This album really blew me away when I first heard it and even now, after many listens of it, I still think that it is the best album in my collection! Well, apart from MIDDLE OF NOWHERE anyway!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, Yes, Yes 2 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This cd is great, it shows us just how much talent those sexy wannabes really have. It's great for listening to while you're in bed or for dancing about in your bedroom, but be warned if you're listening to it before bed, you'll never get any sleep! This album really shows off the boys new mature sound. My personal favourites are Runaway Run, Can't Stop, This time around, Sure about it and A Song to Sing. Taylor's vocals on Save me are simply outstanding, as I never knew he could sing so high. This is well worth the wait in gold and suggest that if you're having doubts, dont! Plus a bonus is that there are some real gorge pics of the boys on the cd inlay!

5.0 out of 5 stars A world away from mmmbop! 16 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Any person who has ever judged Hanson only by Mmmbop needs to listen to this cd and take back their commments about Hanson being 'bubble gum pop' 'a boyband' 'cheesy' 'too cute, too young' or 'chipmunks' because, as this album undoubtbly proves, they are none of these; these are three talented musicans who can play live, write their all their own songs and are still good! This Time Around is my favourite album of the year, all of it's songs are heart felt and worthy of a much higher title than 'pop'. Try Rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Try this out 18 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is such a good album, I was really sad that it didn't reach the top spot and very surprised because it song which are very catchy. It has romantic songs, sad songs, sweet songs and it's-so-cool songs. My personal fave has to be "In The City" because it's a very loud, wicked song which gets u in the mood for anything even school or work, buy this and ur life will change.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best yet. 21 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
This was the album which proved all the critics wrong. Although a widely critically acclaimed album, it failed to top of the charts - who knows why? People need to give Hanson a chance. They wrote every song, played every instrument, produced every track, wrote every lyric. Great talent, great songs, great future - 'if only' they could get rid of their bubblegum pop image!

4.0 out of 5 stars Hanson Grow Up 24 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
Having thoroughly enjoyed all the catchy tunes on Middle of Nowhere and no further product being recorded by the boys for 2 years (except the excellent holiday album Snowed In) I wondered whether I would still like the music these guys produced. All looking very grown up now, including drummer Zac (Johnny Vaughn on Big Breakfast referred to them as a "pack of lumberjacks")they didn't surpass "Middle" but came pretty damn near.
I really like the powerful ballads Hand in Hand and Save Me, (with Ike taking lead on the former) but the rock tracks Dying to be Alive and This Time Around also hit the mark. Only the last two tracks In the City and A Song to Sing are a bit bland, otherwise I would have given this album 5 stars.
Listen to and enjoy the grown up Hanson!
I might hasten to add that I haven't just heard this cd recently my daughter bought it for me in 2000 and I still have it and listen to it.
