You guys, I am so excited for Hanson’s fifth studio album, Shout It Out. It’s on pre-sale over at hanson.net and I asked Mr Boyfriend to get me the Deluxe Package (because neither of us have $250 and $800 to spare on the other packages, bleh). They ship out on June 8th (SIO’s release date) but I’m obviously not going to get my copy on that day because it’s going to be delivered to his address in the US.
I can’t seem to stop yapping about my favorite band (the way I can’t stop talking about adult acne treatment hrhr); I’m on a total Hanson trip these days, listening to their old and new stuff, learning the steps to their new single, Thinkin’ ‘Bout Somethin’, etc etc. Check out how out of control my lastfm is:
Over a thousand plays in the last seven days! Aaaand… no shame in listening to Miley, I enjoy a good pop song. Heh.
Here’s an excerpt from a pretty positive review about Shout It Out from the guys over at AbsolutePunk (click the link for the entire article):
From start to finish, Shout it Out is awash in frolicking pianos, playful guitar solos and ample amounts of horns. Anchored by Taylor ‘s full-lunged vocals, this is an album of soulful, viciously catchy rock n’ roll. Opener “Waiting For This,” sets the tone with a tickling piano line and Isaac’s lively guitar work. Zest-laden, undeniably sunny and awash in optimism, it’s a promising opening for a wholly satisfying body of work. Though “Thinking ‘Bout Somethin,” is the disc’s lead single, It’s successor, the groove-based “Kiss Me When You Come Home,” seems a feasible choice for second single. Feeding off Taylor’s impassioned crooning, Isaac’s inspired playing and Zac’s snappy drumming, it’s a decidedly mature dose of pop perfection.
Kee, I love my favorite band.
