Reseña de álbum

The Mercury Seed kick off their sophomore album in fine style with the exhilarating "This Time," a bustling, anthemic rocker with a vivacious touch of early Springsteen around the edges. "Sinking Like a Stone" is more down and dirty, classic downtempo rock that winks at the Rolling Stones along the way. That's a styling that reaches an apotheosis on "Letting Go" as the band slide towards Cream territory, with a haunting riff and a psychedelic tinged chorus. In contrast, "Dreamtime Oblivion" jangles jubilantly, just the kind of insistent, swirling melody laced number song that danced its way into the singles chart in the classic rock age, in its edited form of course, with the band adding a heavy prog rock section in the center, just like the legends did on their albums back in the day. But of all the rockers within Throwing Rocks at the Sun, it's the boogying "Start Again" that will set the stadium crowds into a frenzy. The haunting "Under the Radar" is destined to be Mercury Seed's show-stopper, a haunting, shadowed number that shimmers from dark to light; a wonderfully moody, acoustic version is included as a hidden bonus track. It makes a lovely companion piece for the closing and unplugged "Against the World," a gorgeous number that wraps around sublime guitars, strings, and glittering piano. Equally lovely is "Let's Play Make Believe," awash in emotion and lilting guitars. And emotion is the crux of this set, the stunning music a backdrop to Volker's husky, thick-with-feeling vocals and his constantly evocative lyrics. Many jump out to grab listeners by the ear, but all ring absolutely true. Amazingly, the band produced this set themselves, and the sound is magnificent, beautifully heightening the atmospheres while capturing every instrument and note sung to its best advantage. Superb!

A band built in the classic rock mold, New York’s the Mercury Seed — vocalist Volker, guitarists John Jackson and Joe Nemchek, bassist Gary D'Andrea, and drummer John Chiechi — developed their sound in Manhattan clubs like the Knitting Factory and Sine-é, learning to craft smart, confident songs that at their best pull classic rock motifs forward into the 21st century. Following an eponymous debut, the group released Dust in 2002, a pleasant enough effort, but it was the much-praised...
