"At once stark and luxuriant, the music never overwhelms with angst but instead works a more subtle seduction; it's music for tender ears and tired hearts, a sadcore aficionado's dream come true." Valley Advocate 1997
"...best new band of the year." Springfield Union News 1997
"Their music was emotionally charged and showed superior musicianship. The quintet's songs never led you to the emotional climax expected. It let them suffer-gratefully" Greenfield Recorder 1998
"...Hospital have won me over on the strength of one track and a solo instrumental. I eagerly await more from this band." The Noise (Boston) 2000
"...Often the folly of trying to describe music with words strikes me...such is the case with Hospital...replete with unexplainable intangables that make a special band. To say more would diminish the moment. This will have to suffice." The Noise (Boston) 2001
Hailing from the flatlands of Western MA., Hospital has made it a habit of triumphing in mediocrity.
Although they have one of the strongest followings in their area, the band wants more, so, Hospital just completed a mini tour with Sebadoh (Lou Barlow is the cellist's brother by the way) and are in the midst of planning a 2 week stint across the country in July/99.
This is a very highly anticipated follow up album to their 1997 self-titled debut.
You need to hear this now, before it's going to be in the big stores with a ridiculous price tag!
