Editorial Reviews

Product Description

US edition features three bonus live/acoustic tracks. 2007 album from Hanson, the adorable teen trio who have grown up into...an older adorable trio! This is their first release in nearly four years. Although the songs are heavier and more mature, the Hanson harmonies and knack for a catchy melody are still in evidence. 14 tracks. Cooking Vinyl.

It's hard to hear The Walk from end to end without wishing the brothers Hanson could go back in time and undo the career-stunting megahit that was "MmmBop." If it wasn't for that 1997 song, catchy and guilty-pleasurable as it was, the boys would be well on their way to winning over the kind of committed audience a disc as focused and fine-tuned as this one deserves. There's nothing particularly high-minded here (excepting the single "Great Divide," a downloadable track whose sales will benefit an African orphanage), but each song radiates a level of pop-rock accomplishment that surpasses most anything you'll hear on top 40 radio. Hanson, in fact, has more in common with acts like Fountain of Wayne and Amos Lee these days than anybody you'll see strutting across a TV screen in skin-tight pants. Highlights on a disc without a single dud include "Georgia," contemplatively sung by Taylor, and "Running Man," an addictive Squeeze-meets-Beatles rock ditty co-written by Zac. In its 15-year history, Hanson has won the right to talk the talk about the hardships and satisfactions of maturing musically; The Walk backs that talk up beautifully. --Tammy La Gorce

Customer Reviews

This is another album that every song on it is good.
Craig
At first it's electic mix threw me but as I listen to each song the CD has grown into one of my favorite Hanson albums, right up there with This Time Around.
C. White
I'm sure that if you're looking to buy this cd you are a Hanson fan, there's no other recommendation needed!

I find it interesting that several other less than glowing reviews mention that the writer is a long-time fan of Hanson. Well, I was never really a fan, although I certainly recognized their talent as well as the fact that even as kids they were a cut above your average "boy-band" if only for the fact that they played their own instruments (quite well) and wrote their own songs. Nonetheless, I am more of a fan of Indie-rock and bands like Radiohead, Field Music, Get Up Kids etc. A couple of years after the release of Hanson's last album, "Underneath", I became more interested in the group when I found about their middle finger to the music industry independent release of "Underneath" and their subsequent lectures and surprise gigs at colleges around the country. When I finally heard "Underneath", I was impressed with the maturity of the songs and the rapid pace of the Hanson brothers growth as writers and musicians. Speaking as someone who was not particularly a fan of this band, I must say that "The Walk" shows growth leaps and bounds beyond "Underneath".

Right from the opening track, the funky and muscular "Great Divide", these guys are out to prove once and for all that they are no longer your sister's Hanson. With an eye on a bigger picture, "Great Divide" gives us lines such as "When every eye is on the fortune - It can only breed contempt - I find hope in what eyes don't see - I find hope in your hate for me". So much for MMMBop. In fact, themes of life, death, loss and regret crop up in most of the songs. The gospel-tinged, People Get Ready influenced "Been There Before", presents a slice-of-life look at a small southern town and the role music plays in the lives of the many generations of it's residents.

I bought the actual album while in the UK...

OK, I'll be the first to admit that I was not a fan of Hanson in their "mmmbopp stage". However, they have now matured to a band that writes and plays not what other people want, but what they feel is right for them. I didn't know they were around any more until I saw their Great Divide music video on the tv. As I watched that video I had no idea who the band was, but I certainly had to find out. Much to my great surprise it was Hanson. I went back and bought their previous album Underneath and it was good, I liked most of the tracks.

Then when this album came out I had to check it out. Up to the release I downloaded the podcast from iTunes and watched their Underneath podcast which exposes the American Music Industry and the corruption that money has done. Then they had a podcast for The Walk which featured the making of just about every track. I kid you not, by watching this podcast I had a greater appreciation for all bands that wrote and played their own music.

Now about The Walk. This is an absolutely great album that I think a lot of people would like if they didn't know it was by Hanson. As a band they have such a negative stigma in America and if you liked them as a kid, well, you just didn't let anyone know. This album is completely different. I played some of the tracks for friends without telling them the artist and they loved it. When I told them it was Hanson they were blown away. I can listen to this album without skipping over any tracks.

**Great Divide** - Has a gospel feel to it without going too far. They incorporate the rock nicely with the guitar and drum beats that really pull everything together.

From the first few moments of quiet chanting featuring a South African children's choir to the last fading notes of a power ballad, this album has its claws in you with no intention of retracting. Hanson has once again proved that you don't need a financially stable yet talent inhibiting label behind you to put out an amazing record. "The Walk" showcases the diversified thoughts and ideals of the band, bringing together perfectly a blend of hard hitting rock, R&B, soul, gospel and even dance.

I'd like to talk a little bit about each track (the last two songs with a (*) are only available on the import - which I might add, they absolutely make the album worthy to buy.)

Starting out, we've got the Intro - A short clip of a South African children's choir chanting "Ngi Ne Themba" ("I Have Hope"), which Hanson met while they visiting South Africa for an AIDS cause. The children's voices lead us up to what I honestly believe is the most powerful rock song Hanson has ever recorded.

The Great Divide - Starting out with precise electric guitar, then a steady beat of snare... Then BAM! Those piano runs hit you, and they hit you hard. Everything musically, lyrically and spiritually come together to create this four minute slap in the face about getting up and making something, anything, happen.

"When every eye is on the fortune, it can only breed content, they say blood is thicker than oceans, still we box our brothers in. I find hope and it gives me rest, I find hope in a beating chest, I find hope in what eyes don't see, I find hope in your hate for me, have no fear when the waters rise, we can conquer this great divide."

Been There Before - You don't even get a beat of rest from Great Divide, before Taylor's sweet, bluesy voice fills your ears.
