Synopsis

Amazon.com
Dire as it might have appeared when Darius Rucker appeared strumming a guitar in full cowboy regalia on a fast food commercial, Hootie & the Blowfish have not gone belly up. In fact, the songs the band uncorks on Looking for Lucky are so quintessential Hootie, right in line with 1994's Cracked Rear View and its 1996 follow-up Fairweather Johnson, that the three middling discs sandwiched between them and this offering could justifiably be yanked from their discography. The first single "One Love" lifts its sentiment (and its title) from Bob Marley, rubbing the master's message of peace and love with shiny pop polish. "State Your Peace" reins in its heavy-handed theme by way of straight-up sunny rock (think "Only Wanta Be with You" doused with some substance). "Leaving" loosens genre constrictions with a new-school bluegrass cut-up. Even a waltz is a thrown in - a cool, hum-along kind of waltz that makes you want to hear more. Looking for Lucky should cancel all concerns that Rucker & company have a long future of hamburger-hawking. --Tammy La Gorce

I dont wanna say it-....................But this one is bett
Maureen K. Lauterbach | NEW YORK, US | 08/31/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I dont useally do this. But their comes a time when you hear an album and you just feel compelled to talk about it. Looking For Lucky is one of those albums that just makes you say WOW after it finishes its last track and then go listen to it again. I am a huge hootie fan and I think this is their best album ever. Thats right. Ever. That includes Cracked Rear View, which until about three weeks ago (when Looking For Lucky hit stores) I thought was hootie masterpiece. Every Song on this album is incredable- From the electrifing "State Your Peace" to the solumn, but poinght "Waltz Into Me". Some Highlights include "Hey Siser Pretty" and "Free to Everyone". But by far the best song on the alubum is "Get Outta My Mind", an infectious pop tune with a courus that if giving the chance, could be the biggest hit they've had since "Only Wanna Be With You". The Bottom Line is that this album in the best Hootie and the Blowfish album ever and that includes Cracked Rear View. And thats sayin something."

"Another great album from Darius and the boys. Like all of there albums, there are a variety of songs covering a variety of moods. Get out of my mind (track 4) is the first one I go to everytime, then I hit One Love and Leaving.
Thanks for another album guys."
