Saratoga

by The Successful Failures

The Successful Failures: "nonsense rock ’n’ roll/garage rock/power-pop and flyspecks of roots rock/Americana. “Tight but loose” is still the oxymoron to describe their lead-guitar punctuated, later-Replacements-esque attack.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Expectations were high after Mick Chorba and Co.’s. terrific Captains of Industry, Captains of War in 2014 and 2017’s epic opus Ichor of Nettle, but not to worry; the consistent singer/songwriter and his dedicated Chesterfield, NJ gang just keep letting it rip, with their no nonsense rock ’n’ roll/garage rock/power-pop and flyspecks of roots rock/Americana. “Tight but loose” is still the oxymoron to describe their lead-guitar punctuated, later-Replacements-esque attack, their hard edges complemented by Chorba’s heartfelt voice, equally full of the blues for old friends and lost lovers (“Ocean and the Stars,” “Where Were You,” the hot “Already in Two”) and economic injustice (“Disgruntled Bankers”), a potent duality infecting his songs with lagging, restless dissatisfaction. While it’s not as long, Saratoga is as ambitious as Ichor’s entertaining sprawl, and its honest, almost Stones-y in the pocket rockin’ and highly developed tunes can deeply satisfy any connoisseur looking for that cut above. - Jack Rabid in The Big Takeover, October, 2019
