Gioeli - Castronovo - Set The World On Fire

Recommended Posts

In case you didn't already know, THIS is my type of tune.  Vintage melodic rock.  Great harmonized vocals, guitars that actually use B and High-E strings, and an old-school vibe that's right up my alley.  Yep, I'll take one, please!

Ok, gotta admit, that first single was better than I was expecting... shows much promise.

If only they were half as funny as they think they are. Schtick is a bit strong and the love fest... they should get a room.

Music sounds good tho.

Johnny is one of the best frontmen out there. Just saw and heard him recently with Axel Rudi Pell. What a voice! 👍

Meh. Whatever. They're clearly excited to be working together, and the energy is palpable. Yeah, it's awkward, but the music is so good it's forgivable. But those photos were cool. Two grown-ass men still able to goof off. I hope I never lose my inner-child.

Wow, that's a great song. I'm glad it's understood that Castronovo is actually the better singer and they're sharing the vocal duties, as they have a good combination. Works well. Yum. Can't wait to hear more of this one. 

Just watched the EPK. Gioeli actually seems really cool, Castronovo probably a bit harder to handle, but that's cool. As noted, the songs sound great!!

Not as good as that first single, but still a pretty good tune.  Sounds like a track that would have fit in nicely on either of the last two Hardline releases.

way too ballad heavy. But there are some pretty nice tunes in here.

Yep...too many ballads, but over all a very good album.

Do my ears need testing? On track 7 (Ride of Your Life), it sounds like Castronovo is singing inside a closet. He sounds muffled as fuck.

Am I imagining things?

Surely you guys can't be surprised that albums like this turn out ballad heavy. Castronovo seems a magnet for ballads. 

I agree there's a few too many ballads, and the harder rockers are definitely the better songs. I'll give it a proper run-through maybe tomorrow, but I liked 'Fall like an angel' despite the really dodgy "rhyming" lyrics in the chorus. And there was another really cool rocker towards the end. Was it 'Run for Your Life?' 

Initial impression was I'd have liked more Castronovo on vocals as it seemed to be mostly Gioeli, but seems like a good album. I thought it sounded considerably better than Revolution Saints (especially the second album), and light years better than Axel Rudy Pell.

definitely nowhere near the 2nd Rev Saints which is an awesome slab of melodic rock hard, with only 2 ballads

I could have done without the cover of Need You Now and wished they'd have swapped out one of the ballads for another up tempo track.  But, don't let some minor flaws deter you, this is a high-caliber project and well worth checking out.

      The party on October 20th is still on! Rock ON!
    • Hahahaha, nah and I don't care  I don't know, been gravitating towards that type of sound more lately after....... more than 15 year of hard rock and AOR Maybe it's just a phase and I'll grow out of it LOL
    • John Farnham - The Box Set Series (4 CD)
    • I will likely enjoy that cover of Africa more if it's mixed in with other covers with the same general sound.
      Maybe
    • You have my deepest sympathies. Have you consulted a physician?  
    • Not liking their cover of "Africa" but am definitely wanting to hear the rest of these.  Certainly an interesting collection of covers - Hardline, Queensryche, Toto, Survivor...  some really great source material.  We'll see how it turns out.
    • Been listening to a lot of country / modern country lately including artsits such as Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley or Midland. Known Jon Pardi for a while as well and a few of his songs but hadn't given his most recent album (2016's California Sunrise) a full listen until yesterday but now I'm hooked. I've really become a sucker for this type of sound, a catchy blend of country, pop, rock
