MusicSpeak: Room to Sustain

Progressive/Melodic Rock
Rating: 3.0/5.0

MusicSpeak is the project of versatile multi-instrumentalist and music educator Gary Williams. He's joined on his debut album, Room to Sustain, by vocalist Suzanne Tremblay. Clearly, from a spin or two, Williams precision and skillfulness in song composition and musicianship is self-evident. Over this, Ms. Tremblay's vocals take center stage. The music could be defined as emotional, but not necessarily overly complex. There's more than a little bit of a power pop feel, here and there, as on Spin Around or Why Can't I Follow. Alternatively, and generally speaking, the music is not terribly intriguing; it never hooked me or propelled me to want to listen from song to song. If it were not for the need to give it a thorough listen for review, I could have easily quit at anytime. This does not make Room to Sustain a bad album by any means, just simply not very compelling. Highlights include Omen and the instrumental Overcast.

In Short

MusicSpeak's Room to Sustain shows impressive song composition and musicianship. But overall I found the music less intriguing, and could have easily moved on to something else at any time.
