"whether you prefer old or new texas, it does not matter - this is some of the most life affirming music you will never tire of experiencing. new fans that discovered texas through white on blonde please go out and get southside, mothers heaven and ricks road-you will not be disappointed. and all you old timers-give white on blonde, the hush, and be careful what you wish for a chance- once you get through what at first listen is all glittery candy the ole comforting texas blanket will enfold you."
Fabulous (obviously, it's Texas!)

"'The Hush' was the very first album from Texas that I ever bought. I was instantly hooked, and since have--to be blatantly honest--become obsessed with the Scottish band. I have rushed out and bought all of Texas' albums I could find. No matter how the band's music has evolved, they still manage to produce hit albums (and, frankly, surprise a large majority expecting their creativity and talent to fizzle away anytime now). Thankfully, Texas continues to impress me, and millions of other fans around the world, and I am eagerly awaiting even more from them.

The album starts out strong with 'In Our Lifetime'. A pure pop track, it's upbeat, fun, and completely infectious. With simple, yet meaningful lyrics ("Understand that it is hard to tell you/That I've given all I have to give..."), it is among the best on the album. 'Tell Me The Answer' is one of my favourite songs off of 'The Hush'. The vocals are simply amazing, with Texas' lead singer, Sharleen Spiteri, singing in a voice so high it rivals that of the Brothers Gibb. The third track, 'Summer Son', contains not only a clever play on words, but also delicious lyrics, and a terrific uptempo beat. True to it's title, it's a great song for any summer soundtrack. The smooth sound of 'Sunday Afternoon' provides a steady transition from the uptempo tracks found closer to the begining of the album, to the more mature, relaxed tracks 'The Hush' fades into. The vocals are calming and beautiful, and they're suited perfectly for the song.

'Move In' is another of my favourite tracks on the album, and with good reason. Simply said, it's sexy, reminiscent, and absolutely flawless. The halfway point of the album is found in 'When We Are Together', and it's very well done. It starts out slowly before developing into a true upbeat, pop track. I find 'Day After Day' to be both soothing and sad. The music is relaxed and calming, but the lyrics refer to being away from a lover for too long a time. 'Zero Zero' is a short, well-done instrumental, and provides a great introduction for one of my all time favourite Texas songs, 'Saint'. With stunning lyrics ("...The meaning of me/Is something to pursue"), beautiful music, and fabulous vocals. It is, quite plainly, a masterpiece.

Nearing the end of the album, 'Girl' has a playful edge not found in the other songs. Although the album is pop-infused, this seems to be the standout upbeat track on 'The Hush'. The album's title track lives up to all that it should. Spiteri's voice is almost haunting in this brilliantly put together track. The lyrics are simple, as is the music. 'The Day Before I Went Away' is the last track and provides the perfect closure for the album. It's a slow, heavenly ballad that radiates so much emotion, and feeling.

'The Hush' is definitely an album worth checking out, especially if you're a pop music fan. If you haven't yet heard any of Texas' albums, well, what are you waiting for! This is one of the most talented, genius bands to come around in a long time, don't miss out on this amazing group.
