Love is great, though I’ve never heard this particular record before. “Stephanie Knows Who” is a whirlwind of several music styles and approaches. Folk, Baroque, proto-funk, proto-punk, garage rock. Arthur Lee’s energy is infectious. “Orange Skies” has a nice classic 60’s vibe as it starts, reminding me of Peggy Lee and other 60’s loungey jazz-inflected pop. Though the songs on this album evoke other musical styles, the result is something especially unique and unparalleled in style and vibe. “Que Vida” is especially lyric-forward, introducing a collection of questions with the exception of the last verse which ends in an assertion about death. We move from loungey 60’s pop to garage roc/proto-punk on 7 and 7 is! So 7 and 7 is certainly 14, though I’m not sure what else the title could be referring to based on the lyrics. Lee is known for expressing societal and philosophical truths in his lyrics, though this one is especially hidden. From what I’ve heard thus far, “The Castle” is my favorite of this record. The acoustic guitar riff is lovely, the lyrics are engaging, and the harpsichord is a fun witty harkening back to times in which there were castles. Again, “She Comes in Colors” has great lyrics and a unique yet accessible melody. Lastly, we have “Revelation” which is 18 minutes long! All in all, this is a record that I’d love to return to and listen closely to the lyrics, as Lee is very much a wordsmith.
