Bob Seger: Seven [Palladium/Reprise, 1974]
Unbecoming for a seven-LP veteran to be stuck vocally at the adolescent outrage stage, midway between screech and scream, but he's learning--a high-speed Chuck Berry chant called "Get Out of Denver" kicks the whole first side into high gear. Glad too that he has his doubts about the upper-middle class, and that he's attracted to schoolteachers, including one he expects to know "20 Years From Now." He could be nicer to groupies, though. B+
