Review: Sign X – Like A Fire
Pride & Joy Music (December 6, 2019)
Reviewer: Paul Saripo
Fantastic album, comprising well written and executed musicianship with a polished production to suit.
Some catchy riff deliveries reminding me of Foreigner.
If you like melody, riffs, epic drums and powerful vocals this album will not disappoint and should be on everybody’s list of albums to buy and certainly a band I would like to go see live should an opportunity arise.
‘Storm’ opens with a signature piano melody leading to the full elements of percussion and fret work of guitar and menacing baselines with a punchy energetic vocal delivery.
Nothing is left out of this album, ‘Rain’ is a true anthem of a track, opening with an acoustic ballad on to a crescendo of power with hearty vocals and pleasing harmony’s throughout.
‘Free your Mind’ demonstrates the bands wordsmith-ability’s and delivers a lyrical hook that will stay with you.
‘Crush‘ ’had me thinking of a west end musical score, not only in the presentation but in the message and feel of the song, credit to these guys on the composition of this triumphant piece and finding a suitable place that sits well on the Album.
‘Sign’ this reinforces the bands range of musical ability to write original music with a feel and nod over to the likes of Deep Purple on a tin of red bull.
‘Koda X’ a melody that closes the album with tranquillity and reflection.
For me, this is one of the best albums I have had the privilege to listen to and review. Its released today and should be in everyone’s album collection. I will be looking out for more from Sign X, as these guys are simply genius.
