This album has been in constant rotation in my cd player for years and years now. It really is a beautiful album. I never understood the people who said that all Mazzy Star songs all sound alike. I never thought that in any sense at all. they all are so subtle and subdued but yet all have their own personality. The album really coheres in a sense, but each song tells it's own story. It isn't simply a collection of random songs but more a book of short stories held together by a common thread.
From the first track, Fade Into You, a sort of surprise hit single on the radio with its country tinged, folk psychadelia to the grand finale, So Tonight That I Might See, a Doors inspired stream of conscious masterpiece, the entire album shimmers with emotion and feeling and dreamy landscapes. David Robacks sweet guitar playing and lush arrangements provide the perfect backdrop to Hope Sandovals detached but angelic voice and an almost faceless backing band provides the perfect foil for the dark, laid back duo who are fronting the show.
Fade Into You is a beautiful tune, filled with desertlike folk country-ish sounds, that never seems to wear thin. Bells Ring which is next, keeps the same spirit as Fade Into You, albiet with a more heavy, electrified spirit and then Mary of Silence And Five String Serenade bring the band closer to a funeral type atmosphere, but it's Blue Light, the fifth track that lifts the band out of it's misery. This almost tone poem, is filled with an aquatic organ sound that is perfect, almost with it giving you the feeling of a soft, blueish light shining through the window on a what was rainy afternoon during a hot summer's day.

Twelve years ago I was sitting on a porch in a college town in the early fall, waiting to go to a party, and the song "Fade Into You" came over the radio. I can still remember the way the plaintive sound of Hope Sandoval's voice, woven into those languid guitar strains, settled over my nervous system with an effect that can only be described as hypnotic. It was a bright, sunny day, but all the sudden I felt like it was half past midnight, and I had nothing to keep me company but a candle and a big bottle of red wine. I was so haunted by the song that at the first opportunity I went out to a record store and bought the CD, "So Tonight That I Might See." It remains my all-time favorite, a bottle of "the good stuff" that I break out only on special occasions.

People have a tendency to discuss albums song by song, but "So Tonight That I Might See" is, to me, just one long piece of music, performed in an unvaryingly mellow and often longing tone of voice. The mood weaves its thread through every track, binding them together into a singular piece of music that is wierdly and intensely beautiful. I would never insult this dark masterwork by skipping ahead to a certain song; I either listen to the whole album (on repeat, drinking some good absinthe if possible and letting the grooves take me where they may) or I don't listen at all. There are rules to drinking the good stuff, you see.

Cheers.

If you like either of the other Mazzy Star albums, this one is a little different... in a better way. If you have never heard of this band, but like mysterious, sultry, and deep music, running the gamut from acoustic guitar with female voice, ranging to psychedelic electronic, then maybe it's for you.
This is the best of all Mazzy Star's albums. I really wish the group would stick with this style, which is a little darker at times, and a little more acoustic at others, than either 'Swan or 'Brightly. There is only one song on this album (track 2) which I do not truly adore (and it just happens to be the one song which sounds EXACTLY like most of the songs on the other 2 albums).
The sound on this album reminds me in an odd way of early Pink Floyd and The Doors, with a sultry female vocalist. It makes great mood music for a make out session. It is good for combating depression. Then again, it also gets me riled up. The title track makes think of what would happen if Jim Morrison was reincarnated as a woman and tried to play "The End" in the 90's. "5 String Serenade" is one of the softest, sweetest, and most gentle songs ever.
Also, the recording quality is FANTASTIC! I use this CD as a test/reference whenever I try out new audio equipment.

Hope Sandoval knows where you are and she can help you find your way again. Every time I come to a point in my life when I really feel disconnected, Mazzy Star is always there to help me through.

Some reviewers state that this disc is pretentious, but I disagree completely. Sometimes people mistake honesty for pretentiousness and this is one very honest collection of songs. I have no idea what Hope Sandoval and David Roback have been through in their lives, but I do know they are deep and feeling individuals that have managed to pour themselves into their work. So Tonight That I Might See is truly a masterpiece of sorrow, pain, sadness, death, loss and true love. Spiritual. Honest. Devestating. Hope.
