The Prince Frog Record Company: Bobby Messano - Bad Movie - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Bad Movie, from Bobby Messano and it's a rocker. Opening with title track, Bad Movie, Messano on lead vocal and guitar lays down a driving groove with a serious lope. Backed by Ed Canova on bass and Nioshi Jackson on drums, this is a super opener. Creeping up blues alley with Come to Your Senses, Messano sends out BB King vibes with strong vocal phrasing and grinding blues guitar riffs. Jimi like Why Water A Dead Rose is a real nice ballad with beautiful bones. One of my favorite tracks on the release, this track has nice dynamics, soulful vocals and articulate guitar lead. With roots in delta blues, Road To Oblivion couples acoustic slide guitar  with a more modern feel to create a fresh sound. Funky rocker, Too Good To Be True has great character and a cocky attitude. I like it! Jazz rocker, The Girl That Got Away, has great pace, and feel. Messano balances a solid rhythm with cool chords and tight guitar riffs to create a really nice radio track. Some of the most aggressive guitar work appears on I Thought We Had This with synthesized rhythm guitar and nicely blended vocals.  With really nice vocal blending, We Need A Blessing is another strong radio track with stinging blues guitar riffs and a solid bottom. Wrapping the release is country flavored rocker, American Spring, with rowdy guitar riffs and a stiff drum beat. Super closer for a strong release.
