LABEL ART OF MELODY/BURNING MINDS
OUT May 22nd, 2020
OUR RATING 86/100
Room Experience is ready to unleash its second studio album entitled ANOTHER TIME AND PLACE.
Room Experience is a project of mastermind Gianluca Firmo, keyboardist and songwriter, already guest on our pages.
Their debut album back in 2015 was a success in melodic rock scene, featuring musicians led by the production duo, Davide "Dave Rox" Barbieri and Pierpaolo "Zorro" Monti.
Fronted by vocalist David Readman (Pink Cream 69, ex-Voodoo Circle, ex-Almanac, Tank), the self-
titled debut album received acclaim from fans and critics and in 2017, the same team (which includes axeman Steve De Biasi on guitar, really awesome on this platter) reunited to start work on the second album, with the addition of Simon Dredo (De Rosso, Laroxx) on bass.
Special guests in this new chapter are Sven Larsson (Street Talk, Raintimes), Iván Gonzalez (91 Suite, Raintimes, Secret), Matteo Serra (Streetlore, Maryan, Charming Grace, Sovversivo), Stefano Zeni (Wheels Of Fire, Maryan), Marcello Spera (Alchemy) and Lorenzo Foddai (Airbound), while mix and mastering activities have been handled again by Frontiers Music and not only producer Alessandro Del Vecchio.
An album fresh that flows with grace throughout 11 songs (plus a great bonus track with GIANLUCA FIRMO on lead vocals on European version), with an high level and powerful production which exalts each instrument.
The first shot is HEAR ANOTHER SONG, well-known thanks to a great video; easy to remind, rockin’ and melodic at the same time..all sounds good with David Readman and guitar that steal the scene, among others.
An 80’s keyboards open WILD HEART, a song which provides both musicality and a fancy texture, followed by DISAPPOINTED that hit us for its freshness.
They go on with STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT, 80’s hard rock with the right dose of melody, increased in following THE DISTANCE.
We can see a constant succession of songs with more energy (SHOUT or THE NIGHT GOES ON, one of our favs) or more thoughtful (the title track or YOUR VOICE INSIDE).
We believe that target has been achieved once again; it’s not easy taking inspiration from 80’s melodic vibes by offering somethin’ fresh and contemporary.
