Album Review

Hazel were never contenders. The band's high energy punk-pop lacked the feign sincerity required for grunge success. Inversely, despite the inclusion of Fred Nemo, the group's interpretive dancer and official fourth member, they lacked the self-deprecating irreverence found in groups like the Presidents of the United States and Green Day, who took over where grunge left off. They also had the bad fortune of being signed to Sub Pop at a time when the label went from a seal of quality to a sign of over-marketed clichés. Which is all unfortunate, because Hazel had all the makings of a fantastic indie band, with fuzzy chords, snappy drumming, and the terrific vocal pairing of Peter Krebs and Jody Bleyle. By their second and final album for Sub Pop (only the Airiana EP would follow on Candy Ass) the group seems as musically lost as they were professionally. There are still some pleasing moments, including the sweet ballad "Crowned," but the rest of the writing sounds retread from the excellent first album. With nothing but the boy-girl vocals to carry the record, it becomes a long haul, despite only being 35 minutes.

Customer Reviews

Where are this bands other albums

Not really here to review this album. Their earlier album "Toreador of Love" is much better in my opinion. I don't know why they don't offer it on iTunes. It's not like they don't have other bands on the Sub-Pop label here as well. Still waiting for them to add Toreador if possible. I owned it on tape back in the 90's and don't have it anymore.

I have to agree

Are you going to eat that is a good album, but Toreador of Love is a much much better, stronger work. I would love to see that offered on iTunes, because they're kind of hard to come by these days.

More Hazel!

I wish iTunes had Toreador of Love and some music videos. Day Glo and Comet would be nice.

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s

Hazel was one of several groups (including Elliott Smith's Heatmiser) that sprung up in Portland, Oregon in the early '90s, just as grunge was reaching fever pitch in neighboring Seattle. The trio of indie poppers included vocalist-guitarist Pete Krebs, bassist Brady Smith, and drummer-vocalist Jody Bleyle. They were often accompanied by a Fred Nemo, a dancer, and spirit man, à la the Happy Mondays' (and Black Grape's) Bez. The group, who was signed to Sub Pop records, released their debut album,...
