Sevendust-Alpha

 

Sevendust put out a new album, titled Alpha. I’ve always been pretty satisfied with Sevendust’s releases. One thing I could say however, is that no one track ever really sticks out as being outstanding, but overall, the album is consistently good. I suppose it’s hard to create something extraordinary. I’d rather them be “good”, than have one really great song, and then the rest of the album be boring.

Listening to this album reminded me of a time in high school when I was sitting in Algebra II class, and instead of paying attention, I was reading a music mag and some article about Sevendust. I had been into their first couple records, and some other guys I knew listened to them too. The guy sitting next to me, David, looks over at me, and says, “It’s hard to believe that guy’s a nigger.” I suppose this experience really highlights the culture at my high school. I had no idea what the lead singer being black had anything to do with their music, and even at that age, it struck me as incredibly strange that someone would make a comment like that.
