Rehab is the title of the first solo album by the Italian rock singer-songwriter Gianluca Firmo, released on the Street Symphonies Records / Burning Minds Music Group on October 19, 2018. Firmo is known on the international scene thanks to the success of the Room Experience project voice from the great internationally renowned frontman David Readman).
This album is so good and shows Gianluca Firmo in great shape as compositor and musician.
Let's start immediately with the opener “A Place For Judgement Day” that gives us an excellent refrain and an absolutely brilliant mood,.
“Heart Of Stone” with a very present guitar that refers to the modern style of Bon Jovi, that sees Paul Laine on backing vocals.
The mid-tempo ballad “Shadows And Lights” slows down the pace, a very romantic piece.
“Maybe Forever”,  a solid piece of melodic hard rock
“No Prisoners” is such an incredible song, so 80’s in its style with references to the very first Bon Jovi (just to make the idea), great piece with AOR echoes, a kind of image to the golden age for hard rock.
The delicate ballad “Didn’t Wanna Care” sees  Alessandro Moro to the sax, followed by the rocking “Unbreakable”, then it’s time for the catchy “Don’t Dare To Call It Love”, another track with 80’s roots.
“Cowboys Once, Cowboys Forever” it’s such a beautiful song, with its delicate imprint.
The title track “Rehab”, single released from the album, more closest to Room Experience’ sound.
Another ballad is “Until Forever Comes”, sweet emotions once again.
It’s “Everything”, to close this album, with a brilliant piano and powerful music.
Such a good album, class and stylish rock.
