On its six-song EP “Water,” Sister Hazel’s cup truly runneth over with strong harmonies and go-down-good vibes. Tunes like “Roll On Bye” and “Shelter” have the sonic zen of instant Hazel classics, and such songs as “First Time” and “I Stayed For the Girl” deliver strong sentiments with memorable lyrics. The group also makes room for one of its most poignantly heartfelt songs, “You Won’t See Me Again,” which, inspired by a loved-one’s loss due to alcohol, offers a much-needed reminder that hope is never completely beyond one’s grasp, no matter how dire things seem at the time. All in all, the first line of the opening tune “Roll On Bye” sums up this entire outing by the band. “C’mon in, the water’s fine,” they sing right off the bat, sure in the knowledge that a dive-in will be worth it. And it is. Bill Dean, The Gainesville Sun
“Sister Hazel’s new LP, ‘Water’ is eerily reminiscent of the sounds from past rock legends, Glenn Frey and Tom Petty. Ken Block’s passionate lyrics and touching singing style coupled with the rest of the band’s powerful performance resurrects those stars and places them in a rockabilly light, especially in the track, “Roll on Bye.” It is this LP where the members of Sister Hazel let their hair down and open up to their fans without losing their platinum touch, but, rather, allowing their collaborative styles to shine.” Ed Zagorski, Watertown Daily Times
The country/rock/indie group proves that good music is timeless and honesty and vulnerability are the keys to sustainability….’Water’ proves why it’s the key component of all living things.” Lindsey Sipe, The Country Note
