Sons of Maxwell 

Sunday Morning

Published November 18, 2004.Sons of MaxwellSunday Morning(independent) The well-known local bar band stretches its horizon with a dozen original numbers. Unfortunately, it sounds like brothers Dave and Don Carroll came up with the words first, then threw together the music as an afterthought. Opener “Uphill Battle” works the best, lyric and tune complimenting each other in detailing a day’s frustrations. Perhaps due to fear of scaring off the squares, everything from vocal energy to tempo to references is set to a default position marked “banal.” Anger at rejection, when posited as “Norman Bates in the shower with a knife,” feels fake, bloodless. —Doug Taylorcategories: Local artist,Canadian artist,ECMA nominee (2006)
