LABEL STREET SYMPHONIES RECORDS
OUT Oct 19th, 2018
OUR RATING 85/100
From October 19th will be available on STREET SYMPHONIES RECORDS the new solo album by Gianluca Firmo, appreciated composer and musician of well-known project ROOM EXPERIENCE (fronted by DAVID READMAN),
Gianluca was invited by the Street Symphonies' label team to express himself also as singer in a dedicated solo release, in order to show another side of his musical ability.
The outcome is shown in 12 fancy melodic rock songs, where Gianluca finally had the chance to share his personal singing style.
This album starts with “A Place For Judgement day”, an enjoyable track which begins with keyboards in background giving us immediately clarity and serenity.
More melodic the next "Heart of Stone", with a great job of guitar and piano, the whole thing enhanced by a compelling solo.
In “Shadows And Lights” he shows the influence of Bon Jovi, within a song well built with alternating darker and wider moments.
A bit "harder", after "Maybe Forever", “No prisoners”, surely one of the tracks with more rhythm and with a starring guitar; surely one of our fav in this great platter.
“Didn´t Wanna Care” is another great ballad while "Unbreakable" shows the "rock side" of FIRMO, where he's able to be, in our opinion, really convincing!
“Don't Dare To Call It Love” is a song that we appreciate second after second while “Cowboys Once, Cowboys Forever” is another melodic gem.
The first single "Rehab" is a very happy and light song, well-known thanks to a great lyric-video, while “Until Forever Comes” and "Everything" end in the best way this great platter.
Lastly: an album to suggest, positive, composed by a musician that loves music, able to develop an own style, in a world where all was written.
