Sounding like a revamped Jackson 5 for the '90s, Hanson had a sunny pop sense that stood in direct contrast to the gloomy grunge that dominated the '90s. 1997's Middle of Nowhere had the sound of a hip recording and the craft of professional pop record, making the album the best of both worlds. Hanson re-emerged in 2000 with This Time Around, a more mature, measured record that represented a bid for credibility outside their primarily teenage audience. They set up their own 3CG label and released Underneath in 2004. Upon release, the album entered the Billboard Independent Chart at number one. The Walk followed in 2007. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
