I only discovered Mazzy Star recently, having missed out on most of the early 90s alternative music scene. Not to everyone's taste (notably most of my family) but Hope Sandoval's dreamy disposition, beautiful voice and her troubled lyrics set her above and beyond the plethora of female singer songwriters of her era. Such a pity she turned her back on recording for so long.

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.

Very Mazzy Star - Not the happiest music i have ever heard but that is not why I put it on. In general I find that their albums have one or two really brilliant tracks, moving, deep and raw and the rest....could live without them.

Soft lilting music that makes no demands on the listener. Melodic and delightful. I was bought three Mazzy Star CD's by a friend who's got better taste than me and I am ploughing through them. Getting the thumbs up from Mum which is definitely a good sign: "soothing."

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'.

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.

If you are not a Mazzy Star diehard, then you may find this early effort a bit disappointing. The music and vocal are relatively undeveloped,it is only beginning to all come together for that Mazzy Star sound. Far better to go for Among My Swan if you want to discover this band at their best. This is nothing special.

A friend of mine introduced me to this album recentley, I can only say that you must own this CD. The songs are beautiful and intimate, often using a mix of different guitar styles, however it is Mazzy Stars vocals which bring her unique and sometimes haunting style to this CD. Listening to she hangs brigtley reminds me of many memories personal to me which in the end I beleive is what music should be able to do. In short buy this album!
