Scott Silletta – The Life And Times Of…

March 17, 2012

This is one of those great timeless records that’s good from beginning to end. “Break In Rhyme” opens the Kickstarter funded album with a very reflective piece, echoing the line “So it goes, what we have could be gone in the blink of an eye” – something we can all relate to. “I Can’t Wait” rolls in next. With it’s building uplifting rhythms it took me back a bit to the classic Commonwealth album from Scott’s earlier band Plankeye, but with a more modern sound. Throughout this album you hear the singer/songwriter that Silletta has had in him all these years coming to fruition. The Life And Times Of… has a very relaxed vibe, with great vocal harmonies, layered chiming guitars, and country-esq shuffle beats. “Closer To This Moment” is my favorite on this release, a great tune about reconnecting and hope all wrapped up in a cool Americana/Indie Rock feel. “Do You Believe Believers?” is the rocker on the album, again showing shades of a modern Plankeye. Beautiful songs are all over the record from “All Because Of You”, an ode to the joys of fatherhood, to “It Shows That I Am Weak”, and the closer “This Life’s Worth Livin’ “, a humbling spiritual. “This life’s worth livin’, so get with the givin’ ” Amen Scott, Amen.
