Take A Ride Through The Life Of Maurice Gene
A full length album from Maurice Gene goes through chapters in the artist's life with a theatrical pop rock feel complete with driving piano and catchy progressions.
The Golden Days album is loaded with a variety or songwriting styles with a heavy classic rock influence and a genuine aesthetic that becomes quickly addicting.
Songs tell stories and paint pictures while guitars rock and sway in a subtle folk style and the album becomes colorful and alive.
As the record plays on, new instrumentation appears and bowed strings along with slide guitar make themselves apparent as the record takes on a southern rock undertone.
Jazz peeks through at times and a contemporary pop approach takes shape giving the album a more eclectic vibe.
This album feels like looking through a book of pictures. Staring at memories and bringing up certain feelings that go along with them.
There is plenty of recounting and remembering throughout the course of this arecord and words get descriptive as melodies and musical hooks take you away.
Choruses are a strong point all through this record and at times it brings to mind artists like Billy Joel.
Tracks give off a warm tone and feel good to listen to as they keep you afloat with sound.
Vocally, the performance is quite passionate and real as Gene belts and keeps things tasteful and alluring.
Golden Days has its own way to take you on a major musical journey throughout this artist's life and at times, even your own.
Take the ride, it's worth it.
