Review: Social Distortion – Reach for the Sky (Rock)

By Drew Wilson

This review covers the rock track Social Distortion – Reach for the Sky.

This particular track was released in 2004 on the album Sex, Love And Rock ‘N’ Roll.

This particular track is, admittedly, the very last new track I have ever found out through mainstream radio. Since this was released in 2004, I am indeed saying it’s been a decade since I heard anything new that was enjoyable on mainstream radio. Everything I found enjoyable since then was found through the web.

This track does have a number of strengths. I found the lyrics well written. The vocals were very well done. The audio levels were nicely done. There is good emotion being portrayed here.

This track isn’t free of weakness though. I found some of the guitar chords a little bit aged – as in, “yeah, I’ve hear this kind of sound before”. It didn’t really detract too much from the overall quality of the sound though.

Overall, I would say this was a very good track. It has a sort of hidden gem quality as I didn’t see much marketing for this track. A good addition to the playlist for a few months.
