10 Earth Days
Sullivan's vocals display the unpolished intensity of Warren Zevon, his rhythm guitar playing has the workmanlike quality of early Springsteen, and his songwriting style borrows from the pop/jazz quirkiness of Steely Dan. When asked about his songwriting, Sullivan explains that everything is built around his lyrics. His writing may seem opaque at first, but upon examination it reveals a unique, abstract intimacy and constant contemplation of the relationship between man and Nature. This lyrical precision is evidenced in the album's title, '10 Earth Days,' which acknowledges the (perhaps) human concept of time as relative and dependent on environment. Plug it in and check it out.
