Me, being a avid fan of soul asylum after yes, sadly enough from their 2 breakout albums, GDU, and LYDLS. I probably first really picked up on them '96 or '97. Little did i know that they would be one of my favorite bands.
Hang Time supports this notion of a favorite band simply b/c this is an excellent album. Let's start w/ the basics:
Sometime to Return: this was recorded on the best hits album, which is where I first heard the song. It ranks up w/ one of their best efforts as any single. I dunno if it even made it big as a single nonetheless, it's a classic for any SA fan.
Cartoon: also on the best hits album, sort of brings me back to my childhood. it's the kind of song that the more you listen to, the better it gets, so fans...keep on listening to cartoon!
Endless Farewell: I think this is the best song on the album. It's the longest song at 4min and 21 secs, but it's sort of like a testimony of breakup song. it's a song you listen to when life is a little down. a rainy day song.
Marionette: This is quite a playful song. SA isn't known to really to create much seriousness into the lyrics of a song. but the deeper meaning is quite something else. take a listen to this song a few more times to get the full meaning, i think you'll appreciate the band a little more.
Well, the rest of the songs, although short and the typical early grunge sound of SA, generally tie the previous songs together to make the album better. twiddly dee is a fast little ditty of maybe a country tone to it. little too clean can almost be on the made to be broken album, if it wasn't for the little melodic guitar solo in between lyrics which i think is the turning point from fast hard grunge punk to substance songs.
Give it a try. Hang Time is definately worth your time if you are even remotely interested in soul asylum, or even if you just want to try some of roots of grunge, check them out!

After buying the newest release, The Silver Lining, and seeing them live in August of this year, I had a vague recollection of this cd. I seemed to remember all of my guy friends having it, playing it in their cars, and me NOT liking it very much. Curiosity getting the better of me, I bought a copy to see if it was the cd I remembered. Yes, in fact, it was. But with one big difference. No longer a slave to the hair bands of 1988, when this disk came out, I fell in love with it immediately. It suffers some from minimal production, tinny, little bass, and a serious issue with guitars completely drowning out the vocals. (There's a great counterpoint vocal in Cartoon that is all but inaudible and completely indecipherable.) There are strong songs on this disk (Sometime to Return, Cartoon, Beggars and Choosers) that deserve better than they got, and of course there is some attitudinal racket. Soul Asylum was big on great songwriting peaks followed quickly by a tumble into a sonic abyss, but overall it's a great record. Not without its jokes, Twiddly Dee is a mosh squaredance, and Put the Bone In is...I don't know what it is. Funny is what it is.

I love this cd now. I'd love to see some of these songs get some new treatment, just to see what they could be, although I've heard some of them live and they're just amazing. If you have never heard anything pre-Grave Dancers, pick this up. And pick up the followup as well. Great music, missed by the world.

This album displays all that is great about Soul Asylum. Catchy hooks, raucous guitar, and clever lyrics. The guitar interplay between Dan Murphy and Dave Pirner is phenomonal, and their talent becomes even more evident live. Their shows from the late 80's/early 90's are still some of the best I've ever seen. This is the quintessential guitar rock record. I remember something Dave Pirner said in an interview, as Soul Asylum toiled in obscurity back in the early 90's, "We had guitars first, so we win". Amen.

"Hang Time" is one of Soul Asylum's best albums. It has the raw energy that is just the aura of the band, and which is unfortunately lacking in their latest effort "Candy From a Stranger".
It's got a hint of the kind of music that they would write on "Grave Dancer's Union", but it's more similar to "Horse". The music on "Hang Time" isn't especially heavy, but don't expect to find the same kind of music as on "Candy From a Stranger" and "Let Your Dim Light Shine", either. Both of these albums are great too, but "Hang Time" really shines.
I would say that "Hang Time" shows the transition that Soul Asylum went through from punk to rock. I guess I prefer them as a rock band than as a punk band. The work they produced in this CD is better than any of their earlier efforts, though there were some great ones on those too, like "Closer to the stars" ("While You Were Out") and "Never really been" ("Made To Be Broken").
"Hang Time" is an excellent rock album that you shouldn't miss out on. "Sometime to Return" and "Cartoon" are excellent if you're feeling depressed. "Endless Farewell" is poignant and just beautiful. I love the humour in some of the songs like "Standing in the Doorway", "Ode" and "Twiddly Dee", - they always manage to make me smile.
Anyway, to cut to the chase, if you don't have it, get it, get it, get it!
