Latest from artist/genius Lamar Sorrento!Commercial Appeal said:
Seven is Sorrento's first studio album since 2005's Blast. While
that record bounced along pleasantly enough in a trippy, Byrds-like
haze, Seven is a more sober, modern collection that broadens the
musical palette considerably.
Recorded at Ardent, the record features a crack backing unit,
including McClure, drummer Kurt Ruleman, and keyboardist Rick Steff.
But it is Sorrento's guitar work that is front and center. The opener,
a jaunty rocker called "Sausalito Girl," bridges the distance between
Roger McGuinn and Big Star in just under three minutes. Elsewhere,
Sorrento gives a boozy Dylan-esque reading on the original "Mistake," a
disc highlight with its staccato, scratched-out solo. And he manages to
summon up even more six-string fire on "Tell Me That Now."
