Hints, Allegations & Things Left Unsaid

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Collective Soul never claimed it was an alt-rock band, but it arrived with the debut Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid when anything with guitars was marketed as anti-establishment, underground rock. In retrospect, it's sort of hard to see how this record, with its loving debts to Southern rock and AOR anthems, ever shared airplay on modern rock radio stations and 120 Minutes, but that's just the way things were in the heady days of 1994. Ironically, Collective Soul succeeded where cult heroes Urge Overkill couldn't -- making late-'70s arena rock popular. Urge, of course, was a band of hardcore ironists, where the members of Collective Soul were dogged ...

Collective Soul never claimed it was an alt-rock band, but it arrived with the debut Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid when anything with guitars was marketed as anti-establishment, underground rock. In retrospect, it's sort of hard to see how this record, with its loving debts to Southern rock and AOR anthems, ever shared airplay on modern rock radio stations and 120 Minutes, but that's just the way things were in the heady days of 1994. Ironically, Collective Soul succeeded where cult heroes Urge Overkill couldn't -- making late-'70s arena rock popular. Urge, of course, was a band of hardcore ironists, where the members of Collective Soul were dogged traditionalists, which sells better with a mainstream audience, and that's part of the reason why this debut was a hit. The other reason is that the band hits the riff jackpot a couple of times here: "Wasting Time" and "Love Lifted Me" are strong classicist rock, but "Shine" is a tremendous guilty pleasure, built on a guitar riff so indelible you swear it's stolen, blessed by a sighing melody that makes this a fine album-rock single that would have sounded as good in '74 as it did in '94. This is the song that signaled that the group had the skills and smarts to be a first-rate singles band, even if the rest of the record vacillates between pleasant and forgettable filler.

    Not their best, but worth the money and time.

    This is one of those cds that is haunted by it's single. 'Shine' is one of the best songs to come out of the 90's, but if you are waiting for more songs like it you will be disappointed. To CS's defense, they are amazing musicians but the music industry only focused on one song instead of their style. Ranging from a good old rock song to a slow ballad to instrumentals, this cd has it all and will take some time to get used to. Overall it's a great cd though.

    Very good for a debut album

    Love the hit track ''Shine''. Like many debut albums the songs tend to suffer from a touch of a monotonic sound that begs to diversify, but the lyrics are positivie and upbeat and the musical potential is definitely there.
