Album Review

Long out of the spotlight and too square to be considered for "That's the '90s!" nostalgia fests, Seven Mary Three keep rolling along, turning out albums every few years, eventually winding their way to their sixth album, 2008's Day & Nightdriving. Those who haven't paid attention since "Cumbersome" may be surprised to find that the group no longer sounds like Pearl Jam (of course, Pearl Jam doesn't quite sound like that anymore, either) — when the volume ratchets up, there is still a bit of a groaning lurch to their rock, but this is a warmer, mellower band, one that wears its experience well.

Within the alternative world, Seven Mary Three have often been compared to the mainstream-sounding, garage/arena rock of post-Ten Pearl Jam, but the group insists that their refusal to alienate themselves from the rest of the world makes them different. Instead, Seven Mary Three offer songs concerning self-discovery and true outsiders isolated from society. Based in Virginia (where the bandmates attended the College of William and Mary), Seven Mary Three signed to the Mammoth label after releasing...
