    While "shout It Out is the eighth studio album and fifteenth overall released by American pop group Hanson" [Wikipedia] you only have to take a very fast look at the cover art to know that it is a very low quality product; still, listen at it under the risk of wasting time and, at least, get seriously uncomfortable. After reading this, don't say I didn't warn you.

  1. Aside from the trio's penchant for maudlin and borderline campy lyrics, there's little about Shout it Out that isn't infectious.
  2. Craftsmen that they are, Hanson are sharp enough to keep things tight, the songs and the album itself never lasting any longer than necessary, but the music itself is too finely honed.
  3. Uptempo jams like ''Waiting for This'' shimmer with top-shelf songcraft; Motown vet Bob Babbitt even sits in on bass. But sometimes you wish these whiz kids would act their age.
