  1. Hanson's second studio album is better than the first.
  2. But damn those cruel hormones - Hanson's collective balls have MmmDropped, and the giddy rush of adolescence seeks to mutate Mercury's finest investment into a trio of crack-voiced hulks.
  3. If you thought they were bad when they were cute, or even that they were cute when they were good, believe me, you don't want to hear them mature.

The lyrics are truly deep, and Hanson gets the message across. I love the fact that they're growing, I just wish more people would sit up and take notice. These boys have something special, it's called talent, and lately, it's been hard to find. Look no further than Hanson. I'm still floored that the CD was that excellent, but I'm pretty upset that it didn't sell more. It definitely deserves to have. Full Review »
