1993 sophomore album from the Alt-Rock duo consisting of Hope Sandoval and David Roback. Features the surprise hit single 'Fade Into You'.
People tend to confuse the band Mazzy Star with it's singer Hope Sandoval. Truth be told, they've been right all along. Sandoval's languid, weeping willow voice is
Mazzy Star; the name is a mere formality. With nods to Nico and the Velvet Underground, So Tonight that I Might See
is vintage Mazzy. Remarkably, the recording produced a strikingly undanceable single, "Fade into You," that ascended to respectable rotation on college and AAA radio. The rest of the album sticks close to the single's plaintive, retro balladry. Though Sandoval rarely raises her voice above a sultry whisper, it's bright enough to hold your attention all night. --Nick Heil
