Hi Susumu,

Aldo Nova is a Canadian artist who came out with a self-titled album somewhere around '83 or '84, I think. Like our resident rock star, Danny Danzi, Aldo did pretty much everything on this album: vocals, guitar, bass, drums, keys, sonwriting, etc. He also became a fairly well-respected producer, I believe.

Musically, I'm not sure where I'd put his music. I'd imagine that just about everyone who posts on this thread will think of different artists to use as basis for comparisons. I'd say he generally fits in with the Journey/Survivor/Night Ranger - type sound, though. He has a pretty unique voice which, based on my experience, people either seem to really enjoy or consider to be weak. IMO, his music tends to contain lots of fat/warm/rich/crunchy guitar; some cool, swirly, "big" key sounds, as well as the typical emotive and layere vocals. He's a pretty well-rounded musician, but I think his guitar playing and producing are probably generally regarded as his biggest strengths.

The more I ramble on here, the more I realize that that's all I'm doing: rambling. It's time for someone else to give it a stab. I'll finish by saying this: His compilation entitled "A Portrait of Aldo Nova" contains quite a few tracks from his first three albums, which were his most famous/popular. Those albums were, in order of their release...
"Aldo Nova"
"Subject"
"Twitch"
It is readily available, and it would be a great place to start, as it'd give you a really good idea as to what Aldo sounds like and what each of these three albums sounds like. They are all considerably different from each other. Hope this has been at least somewhat helpful. Now will someone bail me out, please, I'm drowning...
Don
