Parade of Lights
The Take Off and Landing of Everything
Its been far from easy for Sister Hazel these past few years, after asking to be let go from their record deal and now releasing their third album independently. Any band that can withstand that sort of turmoil, and release an album full of honest, heartfelt tunes like this deserves to be recognized. The album starts off with the beautifully written "Your Mistake" that displays a strong hook and well arranged melody that showcases this bands raw talent. The album flows from well written song after another, with a melodic rock sound that Sister Hazel introduced to us so long ago. Perhaps the strongest track on the album is the ballad "Best I'll Ever Be" that is so perfectly presented, anyone who has ever lost love will instantly relate to. It might be six years and two record deals later, but Sister Hazel proves with Chasing Daylight that they aren't chasing anyone.
