NoNoNo

The new Seven Mary Three album is brilliant. There’s been a varied history with the band’s sound over the years and with the new album there’s a complexly new chapter in the book. I wouldn’t even call the bands discography a book at this point; it’s actually more of a trilogy and “Day & Nightdriving” welcomes everyone with full-force into book number 3. The beginning of this album isn’t all that different from past stuff by the band. Through the first four tracks or so, this sounds like something that could be on their Hollywood release, but somewhere along the line during the album things shift from solid Seven Mary Three stuff to a completely different creative force. What’s most impressive about that force? You can’t pinpoint when the change happens because the track placement is perfect. Throughout this album Seven Mary Three frontman Jason Ross sings with a heavier draw than before ala Bob Dylan, and although there’s a possibility a lot of people could ostracize Ross and 7M3 for this; there’s a problem with them doing that. Jason Ross’s vocals are better than they’ve ever been on this particular album, and when you add that with the fact that as a set this is the best 7M3 record ever written then you’ve got to give these guys some serious dues. “Day & Night Driving” is good throughout, the only moments where it’s not good; it’s great. Every Alternative Addiction fan needs to give this album a shot because Jason Ross, Thomas Juliano, producer Brian Paulson and the rest of Seven Mary Three made an outstanding album; their best yet.
