Time to change your mind about Hanson!,
This review is from: Underneath (Audio CD)
This album is a great comeback for Hanson, demonstrating a further maturation of their song writing skills, which could be heard developing on their previous album, 'This Time Around'. Tracks such as 'Penny and Me' and 'Strong Enough to Break' echo the typical Hanson sound (without the squeaky voices!) that those who remember their 'Middle of Nowhere'/ 'Mmmbop' days may be more familiar with, while others like 'Dancing in the Wind' and 'Misery' indicate the direction that Hanson may head with future albums. 'Deeper', 'Lost Without Each Other' and 'Get Up and Go' would be perfect single releases to accompany the summer months, and provide a good balance with the slower numbers. This album is less produced than their previous two, but the new, slightly rawer sound compliments their evolving style nicely. My enjoyment of this album has increased the more I listen to it, with only 'Underneath' failing to grow on me so far. I would recommend it to both those who have enjoyed Hanson's previous music and those who have avoided it - this may well change your mind about them.
