GROUNDBREAKER – Soul To Soul (2021)

A major step down from the debut in both production and songwriting.
75/100

A major step down from the debut in both production and songwriting. Frontiers have again used their ‘artistic license’ to swap out key personnel which made the original project appealing, only to replace them with someone that changes the sound. In this case it is in-house go-to-guy Alessandro Del Vecchio, who wrote, produced, mixed and mastered this as well as playing keyboards.

The masterful ingredient of Work Of Art’s Robert Sall is gone and his unique writing and production techniques have gone, leaving this as another relatively generic AOR project.

The only redeeming feature is the wonderful Steve Overland on vocals, but he has appeared elsewhere enough now that not every project is an essential purchase.

Too many keyboards and not enough great songs.
