This review is from: Fortress (Audio CD)
Sister Hazel's ingenious melodies, pure voices, spot-on harmonies and inventive guitar solos give them a really rich sound that so many people tragically miss out on because they can't be bothered to look for real music. 'Fortress' is shoving for top place among all albums from across the board, not to mention one of SH's first albums 'Somewhere More Familiar' and their most recent, the inexplicably wonderful 'Lift' which might just have the edge on this one. Nevertheless, 'Fortress' is a must have for anyone who enjoys and appreciates soulful, proper music.
'Champagne High' is an all time favourite track with its gently ambling rhythm and sorrowful melody, topped by cutting, crunchy guitars and drums and heart-wrenching harmonies in the chorus. Absolutely wonderful. 'Change Your Mind', 'Beautiful Thing' and 'Give In' also stand out.
If you don't get this album you're majorly missing out. And when you've got it, turn it up loud!
