Saving Abel, "The Sex is Good"

Track Review

Mississippi rock group Saving Abel defies the Biblical reference in their band name with "The Sex is Good," the latest single off sophomore disc "Miss America" that has been climbing the Rock Songs chart. The song hinges on acoustic riffs that slither along to the melody and a drumbeat that kicks in during the chorus. Meanwhile, singer Jared Weeks fuels the track with his raspy delivery and lyrics that are as blunt as the song's title suggests. "You can't mistake it, because it's understood/ I'm not in love, but the sex is good," Weeks belts in the chorus. "The Sex is Good" may be provocative, but the song's content never becomes too explicit to be deemed off-putting. With a gritty sound and attention-grabbing lyrics, Saving Abel has given modern rock radio another solid anthem.
