Editorial Reviews

Day & Nightdriving is the seventh studio album by Seven Mary Three. The band formed in 1992 when Jason Ross and Jason Pollock met while attending the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. Originally a duo, Ross and Pollock split song-writing duties and performed with Ross singing and Pollock playing guitar. Later, drummer Giti Khalsa and bassist Casey Daniel joined the band, and the foursome played coffeehouses and clubs throughout the Southeast. The present members of the band are Casey Daniel, Giti Khalsa, Thomas Juliano and Jason Ross.13 tracks. Bellum Records. 2008.

Most folks who will stumble across this CD will either be a fan of 7M3 from back when they first released American Standard or wondering what happened to the band that wrote "Cumbersome" and "Water's Edge." Needless to say, this is an album that is for both of those folks alike.

I'll not lie and pretend to be someone I'm not or pretend to be a casual fan. I've been a fan since their first album, but I've been listening to the buzz about this album, and ever since pre-ordering it and receiving it in the mail the other day, it hasn't left my iPod or iTunes. It's an album that's just honestly that good.

Twelve solid tracks that mostly mimic the varying nature of their sophomore release, Rock Crown, the tracks blended somewhere between rock and acoustic feels. My fan-boy nature aside, this album struck me at first listen. I really didn't know what to think of it. I didn't like the flow from song-to-song, and I had to play it again. And on the second listen, I started to get it. I really saw the sonic landscape and it made perfect sense. This album isn't an album that you'll put in for instant gratification--no, not first listen at all--but this is an album that you'll put on to let grow with you. This is what an album should be and could be if more bands focused on their arts--strong collections of songs that you don't want to skip over when you come to them because they don't make sense to listen to in any other order; strong collections of songs that tell stories.

From the first single, "Last Kiss," calling out for remembering love gone by, with other rockers like fan-favorite "Was A Ghost," the rock on this album shines. Distorted guitars rip through, and the lyrics are sparkling above in every sense of form.

At some point in their career, a band must face a crossroads that determines the way they will be perceived by all listeners; either they try to maintain their original fan base by continuing along the well-worn path they already established, or they follow their muse wherever it leads. Seven Mary Three appear to be following their muse, and it has led them quite far from the post-grunge appeal of "Cumbersome." It's a necessary move, and it also turns out to be an artistically successful choice as well. "Day and Night Driving" is chock full of genuinely interesting, well-written songs that stick in your head long after the album ends. Frontman Jason Ross has grown considerably as a songwriter, and it will be a shame if radio isn't hip enough to pick up on a band that too many people are already dismissing as past their prime. On the contrary, this is the band's best collection of songs yet, displaying a sense of maturity that suits a bunch of guys who have been recording for over a decade.
Perhaps a few of their older fans would mock the notion of Seven Mary Three maturing, or seeing the words `folk' or `country' applied to their latest work, so instead, I'll credit their newfound affinity with Americana as the element that provides so much warmth to the new songs. "Dreaming Against Me," "Hammer & a Stone" and "Upside Down" are constructed from timeless elements (including a pedal steel guitar!) that are free from flavor-of-the-week posturing. The underlying theme of "Day and Night Driving" is disillusionment in all its guises, but instead of the anxious ranting that most bands utilize, Seven Mary Three aren't afraid to show that they've grown considerably in the past ten years.

Format: Audio CD
As typical with most of 7M3's recordings, the first half of the track list contains the strongest material. I thoroughly enjoy Jason Ross' vocals and when the music blends well with his vocals, 7M3 has a genuine sound with an edge and emotion that is hard to beat. They have frequently started very strong with the opening track and this album is no exception. From there, things stay good for a few tracks, but by the album's end, you will think you are listening to a different band. The dichotomy between the two genres they seem insistent on trying to blend appears to be growing. Many previous releases seemed front-loaded with the A-list material while the latter half is reserved for the more experimental and/or filler tracks. On this recording this takes on a stark contrast where the clean rock sound which is the genre they do so well gives way to a slow, ponderous, tedious, almost country (gag) sound. I wish they would stop trying so hard to show us they are grown ups now and just do what they do well. I'll always be a fan and will continue to root for them - but will always unfortunately expect about half of the tracks to never be played too often after the first few listens. These self-indulgent tracks are a real disappointment and are beneath a band who doesn't have to prove that they have value by forcing more "thoughtful" material. They don't release albums rapidly, but maybe they should take even more time to put the next one out.

The only bad thing about this album was the cumbersome search to find it locally. For a band that started out in Virginia, I have been a bit upset at the lack of availability in the area.

The album itself reminds me of their true beginnings on "Churn". Memories are flooding back as I listen over and over...Lake Matoaka (W&M), Crossroads (aka Trax), the Frat Parties at UVa with the band in the mid-90's, etc. Welcome back boys!

Bought this album thru an iTunes pre-sale and it may be their best to date. It seems like 7m3 has always been critically ignored or regarded as a glorified bar band unable to emerge from the post-grunge rock scene, but Day&Nightdriving manages to redefine them and is consistantly good... Read More
