Retro Single Review: Dolly Parton, "The Seeker"

by

August 25, 2012

1975 | Peak: #2

A southern gospel number that starts slowly and never quite gets where it’s trying to go.

It’s not one of my favorite Parton compositions to begin with, especially considering the depth of her spiritual catalog.  The lyrics are a bit too redundant, and the

arrangement reinforces this by relying too heavily on the monotonous groove that dominates the verses.   It doesn’t build up enough tension to justify the overwrought release that comes with the chorus.

Written by Dolly Parton
