Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Martin Sexton

Seeds

"Are you ready to rock and roll? Are you ready to feel my soul?" is the opening and multiply repeated line of Seed's 10th track "Failure," which is also one of the better tracks on this Sexton release. This one line pretty much sums up the entire album, somehow. There are so many other descriptive words that I could use, but that does it for me. The vocals, the beats, the guitar, the folk-they are all full of rock and roll...and soul. Sexton manages to create a completely new and different sound for each track, ranging from down-home country, vocal and spiritual inspired blues, straight rock and roll, and even late-Beatlesque pop. Basically every track, except for the few that have vulgarity, are well-equipped for play, but some I thought were especially good were the emotional wailing of 3 "Wild Angels," the funky, cool 4 "Will It Go Round In Circles," the southern gospel 7 "Marry Me," and the rocking 10 "Failure." -Jake Burritt No Play 1-"Hot Damn" 5-"Ass" 6-"Bitch slap" 8-"Goddamn"
