Almost Rant

The new Hanson video leaves much to be desired. But what really upsets me is the lack of West Coast dates. I normally don’t care where Hanson tours, since I’ve never planned to go to a concert, but I did want to go this year, and of course they’re not coming. Maybe it’s the fact that I’m missing out on Garbage’s concert this September that makes me so damn near mad at those Tulsa boys. I also spent last night in the Hanson chat, and, well, the only highlight was Tay’s comment: I’m thinking!!! Of course, only a Fanson will get that. 😉

I wonder how long I’ll be a Hanson fan? I can’t see myself stopping, and yet, if their next album is on par with Underneath…. This Time Around was a damn good album. Even, what, five years later I still enjoy it. I listen more to the various membership CDs more than their last album. They’re releasing yet another live CD, which I know I’ll end up buying. I don’t want another version of “Mmmbop” or “Penny & Me”, but I can’t not buy it (double negitive!). I’ll probably also rejoin the fanclub for a fourth year in a row. I suppose if I was that unhappy with Hanson I could have my voice heard with my wallet, and yet, I keep hoping they’ll come out of their slump and remind me why I love them.

  1. Ahhh Hanson ruleand forever will. That album is a “best of” so of course it’s going to have old songs on it… I was at that concert and I can tell you they performed a lot of the other songs 1000 times better so I’m highly annoyed they didn’t put any of those songs on it… mainly the solos…

    You should be lucky that Hanson tour USA every year… they’ve only had one REAL Australian tour… to which I took full advantage and went to both local concerts… Don’t worry about the dates – it isn’t the WHOLE tour apparenlty… they’ll add a few more dates…

    I personally think the UNDERNEATH video was just strange… I liked the idea of it – nice and different… but I found it highly boring…

  2. Aaaah I agree, we need more tours down under here don’t we?! I missed out on going to the closest concert much to my disgust as i had clinical and was on night shift 🙁

    The underneath video was a bit strange, but hey, it is is something different that hasn’t been overdone by every other artist out there.

    I have just got a hold of some of the unreleased songs and i am liking the majority of them, the rest will grow on me after i have listened to them more than once.
