This CD is more than just "Mmmbop". Though young during this CD's release, the Hanson brothers were musically talented and they had help from some of the best in the business. The group's later musical ventures are certainly more mature and technically solid, but this a very respectable debut album, if you can get past the cheesiness of "Mmmbop" and enjoy it for the sunny pop music it is.

This really is good.

"I don't care about the looks, I'm just a fan of the music... And I'm not 12 years old, mind you, and neither are many of the other people who found "Middle of Nowhere" likable -- many adults like Hanson, too. I don't care how many CDs you have, and I don't care about your life story, either. You've got to relize something about Hanson and "Middle of Nowhere". This was written/co-written and co-produced by the band Hanson themselves, when Ike was 16, Tay was 14, and when Zac was 11. You have got to be crazy not to think that these boys (yes, they are boys) are talented. You have to admit it, even if you don't like their music. What's more, they play their own instruments. Why don't you go bother BSB or *N SYNC or something because, unlike the hard working Hanson bros., they don't write their music, they don't write their lyrics, they don't play instruments for their music, and their music isn't good anyway. But take "M.O.N.": It's not my favorite, but I really like it a lot. The songs were written from the band's personal expriences ("With You In Your Dreams" and "MMMBop"- you just have to listen to the words) and what teens really feel and think ("Weird", "Thinking of You", ect., ect.). All *N SYNC ever sings about is breaking up with some girl, still loving that girl, and wanting her back. One theme. On one of Hanson's very mature songs, "Weird" (which happens to be my favorite Hanson song), they sing about feeling left out and wishing someone was there who understood them. I don't care how old you are, everyone has felt that why or will feel that way or do feel that way. "Thinking of You" is about a boy with a crush on some girl, but can't be with her (I guess because he can't tell her how he feels about her). Everyone feels like that. "With You In Your Dreams" was written by Hanson alone for their dieing grandmother. I don't care what you say, these boys DO have talent, even if you think this CD is bad or good!My favorits: "Weird" (my most fave), "MMMBop", "Madeline", "Yearbook", and "Look at You, Baby".I really don't like "Thinking of You" and "Lucy", but they're okay.The rest of the songs are really good, too.They don't really sound like the Jackson 5, but some of Hanson's songs have a 60's and 70's sound to them. Also, "Weird", "Yearbook", "I Will Come To You", and "With You In Your Dreams" are very mature and are NOT (I repeat; NOT) "teeny-bopper"!"
Pure sunshine, music loved by an incredibly wide audience, g

"Frankly, this album would be worth buying just for "Mmmbop". It's pure sunshine. It's one of the great pop hits of its decade. Still a blast to hear it. Mmmbop and some of the other songs would be great even if they hadn't been made by three kids. The music is incredibly "up", it takes you to a different place. That's great pop. It's also truly kid friendly, but you don't buy it because it's kid friendly, you buy it because you can't resist the sound of Mmmbop. I think one of the things that's interesting about this album is that it attracted a very wide audience. I know a lot of people who are seriously into rock, blues, and other music genres who have this album in their collection because they couldn't resist it. This album attracted reviews by serious critics. It was a phenomenon. Anyway, I dare you to put "Mmmbop" on and not bob your head, drum on your desk or steering wheel, or dance around the room with your kids."
