I generally listen to harder music but I just can't get over how beutiful their music is.
David Colder
There are many female vocalists in the music industry but very few who sing with the beauty and grace of Hope Sandoval.
J. Torre
Has the songs "halah" and "ghost highway". "She hangs brightly" is mazzy star's debut album.

I first heard this CD by accident. I went to a thrift store and bought a blank tape with "mix tape" scrawled on it by its previous owner, and decided to buy it and let the contents surprise me. That's the best 25 cents I ever spent. First, I heard "Holah" which I had heard before; and after hearing their dreamy vocals, I wondered why I never bought any of their CDs before. I never knew such a small detail like the subtle clash of the tambourine could really make the difference on a CD. But it's Mazzy Star's attention to detail on this CD that makes it such a masterpiece. It's smooth and emotionally intrusive at the same time--which makes it a perfect CD to accompany a contemplative drive or a thoughtful evening. And the tape from the thrift store wore out quickly...so I bought the CD.

My best friend Tony and I piled ourselves and our surfing gear into his old Fiat to begin the hour-long drive to the beach for a day of surfing He says, "here,I'll take care of the music", and puts in a cassette of someone called Mazzy Star. I'm not one of those people who makes snap judgements about music, for better or for worse. Whatever the end result may be, There are a few exceptions, and She Hangs Brightly ended up to be just such an exception. No more than 90 seconds into Halah, the opening track, I found myself saying to Tony, "Who is this?? I REALLY like this....whoever it is."
So that was the first day I ever heard the completely unique sounds of Mazzy Star, and I can still recall the exact moment well over 10 years later.
I went on to spend the entire decade of the '90s calling Mazzy Star one of my favorite bands whenever the topic came up in conversation. Even though I give this one five stars, I actually prefer the other two a bit more I think, particularly So Tonight That I Might See, their second release. There's just something about that album. It's like their sound overall...I can't really put my finger on it. Maybe that's the whole point. Yes, Hope Sandoval's blissfully enchanting voice has alot to do with it. And as much as she no doubt hates hearing it, it was easy to fall in love with her vicariously through her dreamy vocals. But a sexy frontwoman alone does not a great band make. The musicianship of the rest of the band is equal in its ability to enchant the listener. In other words, Mazzy Star was always more than just a pretty face. The band had an elusive quality about them, an element of mystery. You can get lost in their music.

I have to agree with J.Chadwick.

This entire CD is very melodic and groovy with a psychedelic feel to the songs. I love how entrancing Hope Sandoval's voice is combined with the resonating chords on the guitar and keyboard. I think of the 3 Mazzy Star CDs, this is my least favorite, but it is still very excellent. I highly recommend "Among My Swan" and "So Tonight That I Might See," which I play to wind down to after a long day, or as someone else mentioned...it's great for making out to! Whenever I just want to chill out with a good drink, I usually put Mazzy Star, Pink Floyd, or The Doors in the CD player.

18 of 21 people found the following review helpful By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 25, 2004
Format: Audio CD
Mazzy Star's brand of tambourine pop isn't terribly compelling on the first listen, since it's all mellow and swirly and gentle. Nary a pop hook or goofy sentiment can be found. But "She Hangs Brightly" has an odd quality of sinking into your brain and making you feel almost as mellow as the music.

The first few songs sound a bit too similar, except for the roaring guitar riff in "Blue Flower." Then things stray into psychedelic turf in the spacey "She Hangs Brightly," followed by the vaguely tropical "I'm Sailin'," pleasant "Give You My Lovin'," the distant and slightly eerie "Taste of Blood," echoing and creepy "Ghost Highway," and finishing off with the soft "Before I Sleep."

Psychedelica. Blues. Folk. They don't usually go together, but they mesh in a moderately successful way here. "She Hangs Brightly" is simply sweet blues-folk-psychedelica-pop without pretensions. It's not outstanding or earthshattering, but it does make you drift away on its sweet melodies.

Guitar and a tambourine are the center of the music -- again, things that don't seem to go together. The electric guitar is a constant dark presence behind the vocals, swirling and growling constantly; the acoustic guitar adds a more organic sound to songs like "I'm Sailin'." And then the tambourine gets hit about every two seconds, on average.

Hope Sandoval has a lovely voice, very soft, childlike and clear. At times she sounds like a folkier version of Sundays frontwoman Harriet Wheeler; the biggest flaw with it is that sometimes her voice sounds strangely metallic.

Of all the albums I've listened to of Mazzy Star, none could compare to the beauty and diversity of "She Hangs Brighty". 'Halah' could not be a better song for the opening track on the disc and 'I'm Sailin' is fun and tender. On this album each song is seperate and created in itself, and not co-evolved. As with many songs Mazzy has written, many of them have coevolved together. There is almost a synergy to it, a weakness. But this album proves that Mazzy's ultimate first release was infact the BEST, as each song has a different subject matter, with many different endings. That is what I love so much about this album/recording. I encourage you to listen to this album before you buy it, so I can prove to you that it is WORTH it!
