Life Is Crazy, the accurately titled new record from Sean Nicholas Savage, is unlike anything we’ve heard from the cult balladeer. No drums or bass on the album, the accompaniment consists strictly of pure piano and lush strings, leaving Savage’s songwriting bare to the listener like never before. Bold and attuned, Live Is Crazy marks the dawn of a new era for SNS, and a long-awaiting return to the full-length LP format.
Life Is Crazy is lush with beautifully ambiguous melodies, refections and new perceptions, all in a world of their own. The album is a masterpiece at a time of transition, in both the world and the oeuvre, from a unique songwriter and performer of the truest quality.
