The Economy of Sound

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Although this straightforward combo presaged the current wave of sincere hard-rockers -- you know, the Creed crowd -- with mid-'90s hits like "Cumbersome," Seven Mary Three came to a fork in the road some time back, and, to quote the great Yogi Berra, they took it. True to its title, The Economy of Sound strips away much of the portent that often characterized 7M3's presentation in days of yore, leaving an appealingly raw tone that recalls folks as varied as early Soul Asylum "Faster" and latter-day Iggy Pop "Sleepwalking". Yes, singer Jason Ross is still prone to sweeping gestures and panoramic although ultimately shallow pronouncements, as proven by fuzzier tracks ...

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Although this straightforward combo presaged the current wave of sincere hard-rockers -- you know, the Creed crowd -- with mid-'90s hits like "Cumbersome," Seven Mary Three came to a fork in the road some time back, and, to quote the great Yogi Berra, they took it. True to its title, The Economy of Sound strips away much of the portent that often characterized 7M3's presentation in days of yore, leaving an appealingly raw tone that recalls folks as varied as early Soul Asylum "Faster" and latter-day Iggy Pop "Sleepwalking". Yes, singer Jason Ross is still prone to sweeping gestures and panoramic although ultimately shallow pronouncements, as proven by fuzzier tracks like "Wait" and "Tug." But as often as not, his bandmates maintain a steady course, knowing just when to spit the roughhousing "First Time Believers" and when to polish the deceptively gentle "Man in Control?". While it isn't the kind of record that's likely to engender the most rabid of responses, The Economy of Sound is certainly a satisfying portion of meat-and-potatoes rock. And sometimes we all need a little comfort food for the ears.
All Music Guide - John Duffy
Six years after their clich├ęd breakout single, "Cumbersome," Seven Mary Three has finally resolved their internal battle between being a guts and sweat rock band or remaining grunge holdovers struggling to stay relevant. The Economy of Sound shows Jason Ross' writing at peak form, and new guitarist Thomas Juliano kicks the group's sound wide open. Going back further than Pearl Jam and Soundgarden to grab from Replacements, Smithereens, and even the Attractions, the group came up with a brighter sounding, much broader-based rock sound than on any of their previous albums. The group spins focused hooks in all the right places, as on the catchy lead single, "Wait," but lets everything hang out on the punkish attitude of "Breakdown" and "First Time Believers." Ross does the mid-tempo sensitive-guy rock thing rather well on the Stonesy "Man in Control?" and the richly developed, highly personal "Tug." The angry grunge and faux-psychadelic experiments of the past now out of the way, Seven Mary Three smartly realizes they are best at being a mid-level rock band, and that's not really a bad place to be.
