Hootie And The Blowfish - Cracked Rear View - Cd
Cracked Rear View Mirror marks the commercial debut of these college buddies from South Carolina and it sold an astonishing 13 million copies in its first year of release. With Darius Rucker's ringing baritone and Mark Bryan's muscular guitar framing Jim Sonefeld's bluesy, energetic southern folk rock tunes, it's easy to understand its success: It's the kind of thoroughly likeable album people sing along with on the car radio. When Rucker demands, "Stand up and let me see you smile", there's something that feels real and convincing behind it; sure, it's a formula, but a sincere one and it works over and over again. Songs like "Let Her Cry", "Hold My Hand" and "Running from an Angel" lay down the rhythm for a cohesive, feel-good collection. There may not be a lot of virtuosity behind it but there's plenty of fun. --Barrie Trinkle

Combining tremendous AOR & blues rythmns, a huge amount of talent & musicianship and demonstrating an obvious love of their work, this is an album of excellent quality. It's got love songs, songs about life in general and some more upbeat tracks as well.
Don't forget: This is one of the fastest-selling albums of all time, and for good reason...
The out-and-out pure craftsmanship of highly-talented musicians doing what they obvously love shines throughout this whole album.
This was the album that won the band the best new act at the MTV awards, in the year that all the British music press could talk about was the "Blur vs. Oasis" hype.
Even though this album was released a few years ago, it still stands the test of time as a classic:
Every time you put the album on, it's like a breath of fresh air - each track sounds like it could have been produced yesterday.
In a time of bands producing albums that are "all filler, no killer" and where you find yourself fast-forwarding to the best songs, the sound of this band comes out strongly as something different to what else is around, yet it also calls out to you like the music you've always heard (or that you've always wanted to hear).
A special mention must go to the lead singer, Darius Rucker, who has the most amazing, soulful voice:
The power of his voice just touches your heart every time you hear it and -unlike many other singers with great voices- he has got a fabulous range and this album allows him to demonstrate his wealth of talents. Fast, slow, soulful, happy, loving - this album has it all.
I've been listening to music of -literally- all styles for the last 25+ years and nothing comes close to this H&TB album....Read more ›
Speaking of hit singles, Hold My Hand and Let Her Cry (along with Only Wanna Be With You) dominated the airwaves for a few weeks short of forever, and I do believe Time also registered on the charts. I seem to remember Hannah Jane also coming out as a single - if it didn't, it certainly should have as this, the album's leadoff track, in many ways typifies the type of music Hootie and the guys perfected. Running From an Angel also stands head and shoulders above most of the songs recorded during the somewhat dead years of the mid-90s. Darius Rucker's voice just has a special quality impossible to describe - soothing in a sandpapery sort of way. He could be the king of the party, and he could also touch something in your soul when his musical mood turned melancholy.Read more ›
