Inside of CD Case

There's a booklet of recipes that is included with the CD.

“Hannah’s Field” to me is best described as hippy music. Now when I say that I don’t mean it’s music that you will see a bunch of people bouncing around as they do drugs nor is it the music that would bring up images of people going around with flowers trying to convince everyone that they love them. When I say this is hippy music I mean it in the best sense of the phrase, which is fun, free, and just a lot of enjoyment in the sound and the listening of the songs.

My Thoughts:
I’ve listened to a lot of music over the years and pretty much every style of music there is but there are times that I still get surprised at what I hear. When I first saw the case to “Hannah’s Field: Music Magic Medicine” I thought to myself that I was going to be in for some unwanted listening. Compounded to that thought was when I saw the inside of the case that features a booklet of recipes and some photos of the two members of the band and I was like oh great I’m in for some tree hugging happiness.
I was completely wrong. Though the songs are upbeat, they are about happiness, and love, and all that other good stuff that gives you the warm fuzzy feelings on the inside, it was also a lot of fun to listen to. These songs are just full of energy that ooze out into the listener, i.e. me. All the beats are mellow yet they are not, which is what made me like them. I was put into a relaxing mood but one that didn’t make me want to sleep or slouch down, but instead had me listening to what was being said in the songs.
Which the lyrics to the songs are really good and a lot of fun to listen to. I particularly liked the song “Hippie Hater” the most. It had me laughing when I first heard it, then half way through it I was trying to listen to the lyrics so I could sing along, only I was just laughing harder by that point. This is pretty much what the whole CD did for me, made me smile and I can’t think of a better outcome for some songs to do to me.

The Sound:
The beats are good, they are played smoothly, not great and “Hannah’s Field” won’t be one of those bands that 40 years from now my kids kids will be listening to, but for there right here and now, they can play one fun song. One of the instruments that I was liking being used in the songs was the hand drums. When played right the hand drum give songs this sound that can bring out the inner hidden wild of a person. I don’t mean wild person as in running around hurting and what not, but the I want to paint my face while dancing around a fire wild. These are the types of feelings that a lot of the songs gave to me and I liked it and the songs. It’s a lot of fun to listen to “Music Magic Medicine” and with the little booklet of recipes that’s included I will be listening to this CD again as I use some of the recipes given.
