Artist: John Taglieri Website:http://www.leapdogmusic.com/ Genre: Pop CD Review: Not only do I like John's clear voice, but his song construction is almost classic. 'Shangri-la' is as close to Journey as you'd want to get without risking copyright. 'Reason To Believe' is a cross between Air Supply and a song that's on the tip of my tongue, but it's not going to come to me, so I will press on. 12 songs and 50 minutes of rock and better than good pop. 'Leap of Faith' is the title song, with a backing of Brian May-like guitar fun. It could use a minute or 2 longer to jam, esp. with those wild drums banging on. Though the lead song is my least favorite when compared to those that follow it. If they played this kind of stuff on the radio more, I would listen to radio more. Yeah, I'm caught in the old scheme of pop/rock which says you have to give the listener A GOOD TUNE and production so clean you could ___ off it. I'll be keeping this cd and listening to it for pleasure. Screw doing the rest of the reviews.
