Album Review: Other Arrangements by Parker Millsap
Excellent, Based on 1 Critic
AllMusic - 80 Based on rating 8/10
As soon as Other Arrangements opens with a blast of growling electric guitars and banging backbeat, it's clear that Parker Millsap has, well, made different musical arrangements than he has in the past. While he hasn't quite abandoned Americana, he's shifted his focus so that he's grounded in soulful roots rock. In this context, the delicate fingerpicked ballads "Singing to Me" and "Good Night" as well as the bittersweet denouement "Come Back When You Can't Stay" are accents, not anchors, and the shift not only adds muscle and color, but depth of feeling.
