100% guitar (bass and drum) goodness...


wow, just when you think all rock music after the early 90's sucks, you find something like this. there are way too many references to mention in their sound on this album. my head is spinning trying to think of analogies, forget it. basically, this is the album that was never recorded in the early 70's that should have been and that's fine with me because the recording quality is better anyway. so much to like about this album, i'll be playing it for years to come.

This Is Your Life: Greg Cartwright

By Stephen M. Deusner, Contributor

[In 2013, Stephen M. Deusner met Reigning Sound frontman Greg Cartwright at a hotel in Memphis to talk about some of his most memorable songs. In honor of the release of the group's sixth album, Shattered, we present their conversation. — Ed.] When I walk into Greg Cartwright's hotel room, the first thing I see is a pile of 45s spread out over the bed.

They Say All Music Guide

Greg Cartwright sums up his approach on the third album from the Reigning Sound with the title, Too Much Guitar — here, Cartwright moves the old-school soul influences that were in the forefront on Break Up Break Down and Time Bomb High School to the back burner in favor of a hip-shakin’ set of loud and primal guitar-based rock & roll. While Cartwright’s passion for R&B is still prominent in these songs (and their performances), here it manifests itself in a set of tunes that take Stones/Pretties-style raunch and filters it through ’60s garage rock bashing in the manner of the Sonics or the Misunderstood. In short, this thing goes bash, pound, bash through 14 high-impact cuts, and Cartwright’s passionate vocals jockey for position against his revved-up guitar bashing, while bassist Jeremy Scott and drummer Greg Roberson flail away for all their worth in support. Cartwright also reaffirms his status here as one of the best songwriters in the nuevo garage scene on Too Much Guitar — while the performances may value impact over nuance, the songs are smart, soulful, and emotionally powerful, and the lyrics speak of a maturity that’s a far (and welcome) cry from the cars’n'girls blatherings of most new garage outfits. While some fans might miss some of the soulful undercurrents that made Time Bomb High School so memorable, if you want to hear Greg Cartwright rock on out, then this album will convince you that Too Much Guitar is never enough. – Mark Deming
