Music), their seventh disc of original material, Sister Hazel

Editorial Reviews

The affirmative overtones of the CD's title only serve to underscore the pride the band feels with the end result; that it's the best record they've made in a decade-plus career. While wanting to create a cathartic experience for fans, this release also comes close to capturing that elusive live show magic. Sister Hazel have sold over 2 million albums, have six top 30 singles, have a certified platinum album "Somewhere More Familiar", and a certified gold release, "Fortress".

5.0 out of 5 stars "Absolutely" Amazing October 12, 2006
Format:Audio CD
When a band has released so many awesome albums, you always wonder if the next one will live up to the others. Sister Hazel has "ABSOLUTELY" done it again! This album has the perfect blend of upbeat sing-a-longs as well as their classic ballads that you can label as soundtracks to your life. I am hooked on this cd, and can't even pick a favorite song. Of course "Hey Hey" is catchy and "Beautiful High" makes you want to hit the repeat button, but then you want to get to "This Kind of Love" still. Wow, there are so many great tunes. Thank you Sister Hazel for staying true to yourself and producing another amazing album!

5.0 out of 5 stars SISTER HAZEL REBOUNDS October 10, 2006
Format:Audio CD
When I first listened to "Somewhere More Familiar," "Fortress" and "Chasing Daylight," Sister Hazel did not have to grow on me. I loved just about every track when I initially heard them. That did not happen with "Lift," which left me disappointed.
Fortunately, the Florida quintent has returned to previous form in their latest release, "Absolutely."
Gone is the intentional intrspection and melancholy mood, making this album much more happy, lively, and carefree. Ironically, the tracks work better at pulling at your heart, soul, and mind. It leaves the audience revived and inspired instead of sad over all the imperfections of life.
This is not to say the five-force tandem does not let us look within a little. This is apparent in "Tear by Tear" and "Everything Else Disappears." While the former has somber lyrics that help the audience shed pain, the latter forces us to smile and move on with life.
Probably my favorite is "Where do You Go?" which is an obvious lament by someone who has lost everything to a hurricane. Ken Brock's vocals almost bring you to tears as he sings, "I can't find out how she got inside to drown us ... I'm not so sure anymore what's next/or if there's anything left for us ... where do you go? what do you do? when all you have left is hanging on you?"
One of my complaints for most albums, of the past and present, is that the group only had one two three good songs, and the rest were [...]. That is not the case for Sister Hazel. All their songs have a life of their own. Moreover, they do not get in a rut. They proove that a musical group can be innovative and creative both lyrically and musically. They mix the acoustic and electric guitars so well that the sound is rich to the ear just as a perfect chocolate cake is to the taste buds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sister Hazel's best album yet December 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I wanted to wait until we really listened to this album to review it. The jury's back and this album is awesome - their best ever.

In our family of six musicians, each one of us has a different favorite song. I love "Meet me in the memory" with words that resonate and a melody that plays itself over in my head all day. The kids love "Tear by tear", a melancholy story of loss and depression, with un underlying uplifting message. They love the music and "words that are like a poem."

"Beautiful high" is addictive and the harmonies engaging. I'm not sure what the other reviewers are talking about in criticizing the harmonies or the mixing of this album. We just don't see it.

This is another great by one of the great rock bands of our time - discover Sister Hazel before the rest of the world does. If you are used to buying albums where you find yourself skipping tracks, or feeling let down after the first 3 songs, this album will shock you with its depth. You'll be hooked through to the end. If you don't own any Hazel yet, this is a great place to start. Then work your way backwards with Chasing Daylight and Fortress. What's not to love about Sister Hazel? It's no surprise this album is at the top of the alternative rock lists right now - this may finally be their breakthrough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than "Lift" August 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Sister Hazel is back with their sixth album. Lift was a bit of a departure in style from Chasing Daylight and Fortress, but in Absolutely, the band goes back to the tunes that made Fortress and Chasing Daylight such big hits. While I enjoyed Lift, even lead singer Ken Block said the band didn't like playing songs from that album on tour as much as they did songs from their previous recordings. The thing I love about all SH albums is you can listen to them all the way through... they have a great flow and feel. I think Absolutely will eventually be my second favorite SH album -- right after Chasing Daylight. If you like some of the SH hits like "All for You," "Change Your Mind," "Happy," and "Your Mistake," than this album is for you. If you've never listened to Sister Hazel but like the Goo Goo Dolls, the Counting Crows, Richard Marx or Edwin McCain, then plop down the money on this album, and you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Absolutely Track Listing:

1. Shame - will likely be their second single... I really think Shame will turn out to be a popular song on this album, but I think it sounded better live than on the album.

2. Mandolin Moon - first single... you can listen to this whole song (and Shame) on Sister Hazel's MySpace page... catchy tune, good vocals

3. Meet Me In The Memory - great song probably my favorite on the CD... Richard Marx helped write it... look for it on YouTube

4. Beautiful High - when I first heard this song, I thought it might be my favorite on the album, but now it's probably at best fifth -- that's how strong the album is.

5. Hey Hey - song really picks up, SH varies slow and faster songs well on the album...
