Customer Review

on 20 May 2012
Hal's first album was brilliant, great harmonies, melodies and original musical style. Then they went to sleep for 7 years. Now we have this, their next instalment!

At first listen I was a little disappointed: the harmonies have diminished and the songs aren't as snappy and catchy. However, after having listened to each song a number of times, I have begun to really like each song. Particular favourites are 'Close to Her', 'Hannah' and 'Be With You'. 'Close to her' is a perfect example of Hal's ability to come up with beautiful harmonies almost on a par with The Beach Boys. There is a noticeable development from their first album, and I think this is indicative of their musical talent.

I even noticed a hint of prog rock and sounds of Barclay James Harvest. But Hal are definitely original and have the ability to write extremely catchy, easy listening soft rock songs. Probably my favourite band of the 21st century along with The Magic Numbers.

Should you buy this?...Yes. Yes you should!!!
