3 Pill Morning - Black Tie Love Affair

by Kevin Wierzbicki

Jeff Stebbins issues a forecast on "Rain," the leadoff track on Black Tie Love Affair, and it calls for a lot more than precipitation. Set appropriately enough to a thundering bass line and guitars that slash like lightning, Stebbins tells an unfaithful lover that he's going to get even by going out to "make it rain," and just in case the strip club binge isn't enough retribution, he intends to top off the evening by torching the no-longer-a-couple's one-time love nest. The sentiment fits nicely with 3 Pill Morning's modern hard rock style and true to album title Black Tie Love Affair, these songs lyrically focus primarily on the roller coaster ride that comes along with an intense relationship. So there's a little pithiness but the guys haven't forgotten that music is supposed to be fun; even the self-explanatory "Loser" has a redeeming quality in its super-catchy chorus that almost makes the listener forget that the words are intended as a put down. And on current single "I Want That for You" Stebbins quite sincerely lets an ex know that, hey, it didn't work out, but have a good life. "So Good to Leave" with its acoustic guitar opening is the set's quietest moment even though it features an anthemic chorus and most of the album, hard but not bombastic, has enough poppiness to make it radio-friendly. Fans that like forceful 4-minute rockers that you can sing along to should not hesitate to accept this invitation to a Black Tie Love Affair.
