THEN AND NOW
Frontiers Records FR CD 072
Produced by: Various
Released: OUT NOW / Website
Closest Relative: Alias
Freddy Curci is a wonderful vocalist and has been at the help of a couple of classic releases in his time. The debut Alias album is still a big favorite amongst AOR fans and his softer solo album Dreamer's Road is also held in high regard.|
This new compilation was put together and released by EMI Canada and will soon be released in Europe by Frontiers Records. First the details of the release:
Bare Necessity and Finally are previously unreleased Alias tracks.
The Foreign language tracks are Italian versions of Alias tunes and the rest are tracks taken from the two released albums - Alias' debut and Dreamers Road.
Bare Necessity is a great rocker in the style of the debut Alias album, one that will please all fans of he album and be a most welcome addition to collections.
Finally is a huge power ballad that sees Freddy stretch his vocal chords to the max. Another great track.
The compilation adds a live version of the Sheriff classic When I'm With You, so another plus for the album.
The downside of the album is the second half drags a little in places.
For the record, Senza Te is a new version of Give Me A Reason To Stay, Ti Sposero is More Than Words Can Say and Un Amore Tutto Mio is an alternative version of the new track Finally.
|PRODUCTION: 85%||SONGS: 75%||VIBE: 65%||ATTITUDE: 75%||ESSENTIAL FOR: All Freddy Curci fans and some Alias fans not afraid of the softer side.|
