A little different than what it used to be...

"Back in 95 when American Standard started getting radio play, I got into the Southern Alternative sound--Sister Hazel, Seven Mary Three, etc. A friend of mine and I became real 7M3 junkies, in a sense. We rode around in my old Taurus listening to American Standard constantly. So, in 97, when Rock Crown came out my friend bought the CD and we rocked to Needle Can't Burn all the way from Morganton to Carowinds in Charlotte. I didn't give the softer songs a chance then, and I was completely turned off by Honey of Generation. Well, I'm still turned off by Honey, and I don't think that will ever change. But now, listening to the CD(which I haven't heard a single time since summer of 97) is a beautiful escape. Needle Can't Burn is now an awesome trip back in time to the summer I was 19 and getting ready to finally move off to college. Listening to songs like Houdini's Angels and Lucky really show me a side of 7M3 that we don't see much of anymore. I'm not good at describing how such lyrics can make you feel, but the songs seem personal and heartfelt, and the musical accompaniment is perfect. I did go on to buy Orange Avenue and Economy of Sound, but somehow they just don't compare, unfortunately. This one will go down in History as one of my classics. I smile when I hear it. I think of those days before life really hit, when the music really struck a chord, and was distributed not to make big bucks, but to express a band's talents."

"Just a wonderful CD. Great hard songs "Rock Crown", "Honey of Generation", "Home Stretch". Great slow songs "Lucky", "Oven", "Times Like These", "Houdini's Angels"... Some of the best stuff to receive little airplay and is very creative. 7M3 SHOULD BE HUGE! "I think that people get tired of themselves. Is that why the TV's on all the time?" I love it."
