I love music. I cannot play any instrument. But, man, how music stirs emotion. And, awesome how it stays with a person whether the music stopped playing out loud or not. Thus, I love to discover music. I’m not some elite connoisseur of the hippest of hip. But, I unapologetically express an interest in many forms of music. Took me a while to get to that point, but I’m here, and I’m sharing with you.
A friend of mine mentioned Rigoletto in a casual skype chat one day. I checked them out and instantly liked them. I haven’t gone ape shit obsessed over them … yet. I revisited them yesterday and was drawn in once again. I can’t quite put my finger on the sound. I want to say it’s nostalgic. But, the young gents in this group look at least a decade younger than me. What nostalgia could they possibly conjure that would ring something inside of me? I’m still not quite sure. But, it’s such a sweet sound.
My favorite track so far? Queen’s Hotel, without a doubt.
Check out their Delusions of Grandeur (Deluxe) ablum. I’m still discovering each song, but each person has their own pace, as it should be. To fully appreciate music, you allow yourself to embed the sound inside, much like the way I’ve embedded their track list below. Enjoy!
And, while you’re at it, check out the video for Northern. It definitely has a nostalgic feel to it.
