Description

In his third full-length album, local singer-songwriter Tod Pronto is at it again, making music and writing songs that rock, make you think, and get stuck in your head. The album is titled "It Can’t All Be Wrong".

To describe Pronto’s music as alt-country is somewhat of a misnomer. In fact, it is a clear understatement, although the album is full of alt-country style tunes like the opening track “74 Dodge Dart,” that ranks up there with some of the best road songs around. “I-91, southbound lane / hit 120 and she started to shake,” Pronto sings. The album takes off from the start like the Dodge Dart Pronto sings about. The songs move along, touching upon a number of topics, from the loss of love, confusion, the thrill of the open road in your first car, longing for a warmer place, to becoming that person that you never thought you would become. One of Pronto’s strengths as a songwriter is that he has the ability to write songs that are extremely catchy. Some of the tracks on It Can’t All Be Wrong become ear-worms after the first listen, however, Pronto is a smart enough musician not to let his art be dumbed down into just more kitsch in an industry overrun with pop music.One thing refreshing about "It Can’t All Be Wrong" is that it’s not just a collection of songs. It’s an actual album. Throughout the tracks Pronto takes the listener along on a roller coaster of emotions and life experiences that work together as a whole. Like much of Pronto’s music, It Can’t All Be Wrong is difficult to label. Americana, or Alt-Country come the closest, even though it ends with an almost dance or electronic track with a chorus that chants “the devil will never win.” There is a little something for everyone on the album.
