Editors’ Notes

It’s time to let go of “Mmmbop” and admit that the Hanson brothers have grown up and are now adult performers writing songs for more mature audiences. Their shameless pop hooks still lead the way, but it’s with a songcraft that would be the envy of many performers who are struggling to make an impression without losing their bad teen-pop reputation. “Waiting for This” is an immediately likable piece of radio-pop. The guitars crank out economical riffs. The hookline is sturdy and the ensemble vocals create a party in the making. “Thinkin’ “Bout Somethin’” adds horns and tilts towards the band’s R&B interests. “Kiss Me When You Come Home” is more modern R&B. They’re natural pros and no one’s ever going to mistake them for a rough n’ tumble act. Whether the Hanson name helps or hinders the band is debatable. It depends on what you expect. But if you’re expecting slick, smooth, virtuoso pop performances, you’ve come to the right place.

Customer Reviews

Great pop-rock sound

After first single "Thinkin Bout Somethin," I was interested to hear the rest of their new album. I enjoyed the organic ground up feel of this lead single, something lacking on the current pop charts full of over-produced auto-tuned tracks. The rest of the album does not disappoint in that regard, it has a very live authentic feel. If you like Maroon 5, Gavin DeGraw, Train, Crash Kings, John Mayer, or Kris Allen you should definitely give this album a try. If you don't, give it a try anyway, you'll probably be surprised. The notable musicianship and killer harmonies make them stand out from the pack. My favorite tracks: "Give a Little," "Kiss Me When You Come Home," "Use Me Up," and "Me Myself and I."

An outstanding addition to Hanson

Shout it Out will inevitably garner Hanson some new fans, and it should earn them some accolades. They stay true to themselves, their musical sensibility and pop rock roots. This album is happy, fun, pained and real. It strings me up high then throws me down, and does it seamlessly. Hanson is one of the most underrated bands at the moment, and I hope, for their sake, this album helps them to be noticed. They deserve everything that comes their way. They have never sold out. They know Hollywood is not America. Hanson is a class act: hard-working and talented, in an age of cheap and quick.

Love it!!!

Still making great music!!!


Formed: 1992 in Tulsa, OK

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Sounding like a revamped Jackson 5 for the '90s, Hanson came storming out of Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1997, blessed with photogenic looks and a surprisingly infectious sense of melody. Hanson had a sunny pop sense that stood in direct contrast to the gloomy grunge that had dominated the first half of the '90s, yet they also arrived with hip credentials -- a handful of the cuts on their debut were produced by the Dust Brothers (Beastie Boys, Beck, Sukia), and the rest were produced by Steve Lironi, who...
