Mazzy Star's latest album, Among My Swan, is both an exceptional sound and experience. Perhaps there should be one qualification in that its not for everyone in the Techno Spice World of Top 40. The Velvet Underground, the Doors, blues and even country are commonly cited as influences on the album's various tracks. Hope Sandoval's ethereal vocals glide gracefully over the studied understatement of Dave Roback's guitar work and arrangements. The music turns rhythmically in subtle shades of tone and mood like sunlight through swaying branches on an eternal afternoon. Notable tracks include "Flowers in December" and "I've Been Let Down" which really let Hope's exquisite lyrics and voice shine. Shy and heartfelt, she can convey a sadness so profound that it is almost resignation. The music has been described as depressing, but in its own way, like an opera, it magically transforms that sadness into something beautiful, poignant and ultimately powerful. If you've noticed, it tends to inspire the group's fans to wax poetic, perhaps having been in touch with something extraordinary.

This is one of the best discs I own.
These songs are so incredibly sad and so full of longing... There's no other experience quite like sitting alone on the beach drinking to excess and listening to All Your Sisters the day a love affair ends. At moments like that, the song will bring you closer to death and closer to life than anything else you've ever heard.
Try driving through the northwestern woods on a dreamy day while listening to I've Been Let Down or Take Everything or Look On Down From the Bridge. You'll cry. You'll remember. You'll feel. You'll find yourself asleep while you're awake, dreaming of lost loves and hazy afternoons in bed and intoxicated-- those moments that ended, even though you never wanted them to... those moments you'd long since forgotten.
I love this music and this music loves me. I drink to this music, and sometimes I feel as though these songs raise a glass to me. Probably, you'll love this music, too. Welcome back to the era when music meant something.

This group and their music is so much more than just lyrics and instruments. It creates feelings and images in your mind, especially some of the songs on this album, they create a dream like state where things can become surreal, almost like a whisper. I have always enjoyed writing, but sometimes its hard to get into the needed mood. Often times music can only be a distraction, but this music creates images in the mind and creates scenes of imagination. Characters can begin speaking to you on a weird level, all because of a trance-like state that this soft music can cause. I am truly appreciative to Mazzy Star for their work, the beauty that they create. -Allen Darrah

One should be warned before listening to A Mazzy Star album that they make powerful music and if you're listening closely it may take you off guard. Mazzy Star makes some of the most beautiful and heartbreaking music I've ever had the joy of listening to. Every note is shrouded in longing and Hope's voice seems to dance along with them flawlessly. Mazzy Star has become folk heros for those of us who are lost and alone. Mazzy Star's music is there to let us know that we are not alone. together we sing our sorrows and talk with the ghosts of our pasts. Buy this album.

To truly understand Mazzy Star, I think you need to listen to this cd with the lights off or at least with your eyes closed. This is a great cd to put in after a breakup, on a rainy day, to relax to when you're depressed, feeling mellow, or, if you're into bands like Radiohead, The Doors, or anything psychdelic, I think you'll really be able to appreciate this Mazzy Star.

1. Disappear -Starts out very chilled, mellow and relaxed the minute you press play. The beat of the guitar and the chimes I can't even describe. It just sounds like sparkling rain. A sad one, but great to listen to if your in that kind of mood.

2. Flowers In December -Really pretty. Hope play harmonica on here and the sound of it made me love this song right away. The baseline also sounds great, and I love the lyrics. "Send me your flowers of your december, send me your dreams of candy wine."

3. Rhymes Of An Hour -Featured in the movie "Stealing Beauty" this one is very mellow and slow but grows on you after awhile. I seem to like it more each time I listen to it. The music sounds like it almost have some marraccas in it I believe.

4. Cry, Cry -If you felt the disappearing vibe on track one, you're going to definetly hear the crying vibe on here. This is such a real song you can almost see happening to you with a tearjearker chorus and lyrics.

5. Take Everything -Awesome guitar in here. ..and just like I explained with "Cry" and "Disappear," I also felt like the lyrics brilliantly fit the mood of the whole beat of this song. My favorite Mazzy Star song on here probably.

6. Still Cold -I think this one of the fastest songs on here, but I loved it right away.
