Simone Fiorletta - Personalities (2013)

An instrumental guitar album with lots of shred and progressive ideas to grab. This is Personalities, fifth solo released by Italian guitarist Simone Fiorletta. Simone was mainly recognized from his works with progressive band Moonlight Comedy and No Gravity. His solos careers is what more colorful with already five solo albums. Not much differed from the past, Simone continue the collaboration with high profile musicians such as Andrea de Paoli keyboardist of Labyrinth. This album also something special with larger contributions of guest musicians, see the details below for a fantastic line up musicians of new generation. For example, John Macaluso, drummer who just recorded a decent album with Mastercastle and now touring with Symphony X. Then guitarist Fabrizio Leo and many others.

The line up of instrumental songs are differed in several styles. Heavy metal chops can be found in track Ascent, and then goes progressive with Thirty and Docktor Jekyll And Mister Hide. The other major styles is simple a melodic hard rock ala '80 Shrapnel years in Waiting To See You Again, April 14th 2010, Unconditional Love and catchy tunes in Bottom Line. Simone also inserted many experimental styles that show his versatility over the fret boards, Your Grit Is My Reason Of Life is a fast neo classical tunes. Notable is To The Station with rather chicken picking country feel and very funky In Time Of War. The package then closed with solo acoustic cut of a cover song titled You And I.

Of many enjoyable tunes, my favorites are April 14th,2010 and Doctor Jekyll And Mister Hide. Surely this album will easily accepted by shred mania for its high quality of music. Bassist Dino Fiorenza, which a hired gun for many guitarist such as Chris Bickley, is one of great contributors to make this album colorful and musically rich. Stay tune and enjoy the wide imagination of music via this album, which best titled as "Personalities".
