    It's as if she recorded this album right after "Among My Swan" her 2nd or 3rd album. Mazzy Star is always a treat to listen to because their of lead singer Hope Sandoval's moody and trippy songs alongside a great voice. Mazzy Star are still making relevant music well into the 21st century. I've always revisited their music. It doesn't become stale or unpalatable. This is a great album. Can't wait to see them live! She's so charismatic with a look all her own- just like all the other greats that is always is a plus!!! Collapse

    Sounds like they picked up right where they left off in the 90's and overall it's a very impressive album from start to finish. "Spoon" and "Flying Low" push their sound out the slightest bit further without changing what they are.

    Departing from the more sophisticated sadness and meticulous beauty of Among My Swan and So Tonight That I Might See, Seasons of Your Day reveals a much more honest, edgier sound. One part blues, one part country, one part folk. Strong work 17 years overdue.

    While it lacks the singular impact of their still flawless debut, it's still an object of languorous beauty, rather like the band itself. [No. 105, p.57]

    No analysis, no interpretation, nothing to feel uncomfortable about here, just beautiful desolation. Mazzy Star was always a band to hide away with, and nothing's changed in 2013.

    Its lyrical understatement and deliberately minimalist presentation may not excite newcomers, but those familiar with the languid delivery of Hope Sandoval and the teasing alternation of holding back and letting go that characterizes David Roback’s music, with and without his band mates, will recognize Mazzy Star’s perch between celestial elevation and shrouded descent.
