The Gracious Few

The Gracious Few sounds a lot how you think it would sound. Live mixed with Candlebox with a few different things thrown in. So, yes.... it's good. The band is comprised of Kevin Martin and Sean Hennesy of Candlebox, Chad Taylor, Patrick Dalheimer, and Chad Gracey (all of Live.) Some of these songs sound like Candlebox songs because they have that dark and eerie vibe to them that the group made famous. A couple of these songs sound like Live songs- you can literally think of Ed Kowalczyk singing and they sound like something that was released by Live five years ago. To be honest with you though, that’s just scratching the surface of The Gracious Few. This debut album was produced by Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads fame and it’s rough enough to give it a classic rock tinge to it as well. So when you throw in Live, Candlebox, classic rock, and Jerry Harrison doing some decent production you get a great album by The Gracious Few. The band is at its best on the edgier songs where Martin is belting out vocals, when they’re not taking advantage of that some boredom can set in. So the lighter tracks are just decent. Still, there are three or four songs on this album you’ll love and it’s worth at the very least a preview.
