Amoeba Review

07/14/2014

Even garage rock royalty need to grow up sometime, and Reigning Sound’s Greg Cartwright does so masterfully on Shattered. Whether shitkicking with cow-punk jams like “North Cackalacky Girl” or delivering touching, string-laden odes to yearning like “Never Coming Home,” Cartwright’s throaty tenor paints vivid images of life lessons that come across as tender but without a trace of sentimentality. Though Shattered’s country overtones help to enunciate the heartache prevalent in these songs, especially in the lovely “If You Gotta Leave” and stirring “Once More,” Cartwright and co. also do well by tapping into the Nuggets reserve, tearing through classic garage-rock tropes on the rollicking “You Did Wrong” and Stonesy “My My.” And like the Stones before them, Reigning Sound know how to make these disparate rock ‘n’ roll strains hang together beautifully, given the album’s fuss-free production and unhurried grace. By the time they get to the soulful “Starting New,” it’s clear that Cartwright has earned the ability to make classic rock that doesn’t just sound that way, but feels essential as well.
