RICHARD PAGE(Mr. Misters)- Songs From The Sketchbook (2012)
Disco en solitario del que fuera miembro de Mr Mister, banda que tuvo su época dorado con unos cuantos discos en los '80. Despues de que la banda se separara, Richard Page, continua su carrera en solitario y aqui nos presenta un nuevo disco, con canciones, que durante los últimos 20 años ha compuesto para otra gente y que no entraron en los discos de Mr Mister ni en sus discos en solitario.
Rock Mélodico muy suave, West Coast, aunque a mi particularmente no me gusta tantas etiquetas, se puede resumir , para seguidores del Rock Melódico más suave.
Mr. Mister's mastermind RICHARD PAGE has released another solo album. Or more accurate, a collection of songs mostly written for other artists, which for some reason never were recorded by the intended artist.
"Songs From The Sketchbook" thankfully rescues a bunch of hidden gems, and coming from Richard Page, as usual, are a pure delight for the ears.
First of all, let me tell you that "Songs From The Sketchbook" isn't a collection of 'sketches', these are all full fledged masterpieces from Page's magical pen.
Written for quite a diverse bunch of artists, it will come as no surprise the material on here is diverse as well. Yet, as all is played and sung by him, it still sounds coherent.
The cool thing is he explains extensively in the booklet how this all came about. Like he also discusses the circumstances under which these versions were recorded, with whom and when.
"Songs From The Sketchbook" comprises a diverse collection of songs written and performed by Richard Page during the last twenty years, balancing uptempo tracks with the smooth stuff his recent solo work is known for.
A flawless, pure Page album. Pure class.
