COLLECTIVE SOUL...Hints, Allegations And Things Left Unsaid  (1993, 1994)
Hints, Allegations And Things Left Unsaid was first released in 1993 on an indie label called Rising Storm Records, but was later released in 1994 when the band got a major label deal with Atlantic.  It then reached number 15 on the U.S. Billboard album charts.  It was all because of the track "Shine" that this album got picked up for a deal with Atlantic.  It is, by far, the best track on the album.  That was the reason I bought the CD in '94.  The rest of the album is not even close to being as good as "Shine."  The band themselves do not consider this as their debut, which is understandable, as their future albums would be much better than this one.  Having said all that I'll give it a 2 1/2 out of 5 stars and I'll recommend it simply for the fact that "Shine" is such a fantastic track
