If Dolorean has been lumped with other country folk-rock acts, that move was based on assumptions. Al James' (Dolorean's primary songwriter) lyrics and song-smithing have always elevated this group above the standard break up musings. Sure, Dolorean's songs deal with broken hearts, bad habits, and mundane circumstances, but unlike their contemporaries, Dolorean offers solutions and honest warning.
In the past, Dolorean worked as a talented group of musicians giving Al James something beyond solo guitar recordings. The Unfazed is Dolorean evoking a band that discovered something special by taking a few years to themselves. While other country-folk-rock groups are consistently digging up tombs, knowing what they'll find, Dolorean is dependably repairing what's been exposed.
