and charming music styles.
great emotion and pleasure I present you
one of the most unexpectable come–back...NUDE!
Their previous release dates back 2001…and not many of you can
remember that our DB has still that old review “Cities and Faces”
…one of our first reviews…
Nude comes from south Italy (just like me)…and their music is the
perfect mix among 80’s pop wave, modern gothic rock and shadows of
The sound is not changed…after 12 years. The band is back with an
album in which the main essence is the melody based on a very catchy
arrangement that puts in evidence very awesome loops, effected
guitars…great keyboards…and a very good voice!
In according to what I described above, I can affirm that this album
sounds very good, even if not all songs met all expectations…but the
good ones make this album the proof that Nude are a very original band
in the nowadays scene….
They sound original and I’m sure that this album could be appreciated
either by Goth listeners or pop new wave fans…
The single “My World Today” is a very stunning song ; Catchy and
mysterious….full of intriguing parts, the song is very involving and
represent a very example of perfect mix between pop-wave and modern
“Neon Smile” begins like a 80’s song…as if a modern Billy Idol
should make a song together with The Cure!!!
This is the Nude spirit….and the track n°5 changes a little bit
direction…echoes of Paradise Lost ( 1999-2003) are mixed to
Zeromancer….for another engaging song!
I want to underline another little masterpiece “Old Fashion Doors”!!!
Sergio Ducilli achieves a very good arrangement into another involving
chorus ; the song mixes 80’s dark, gothic rock in a very awesome way!
The title track represents the sound of the band both for arrangement
and search of melody…such as in the next one “Once Upon A Time”
that in my opinion doesn’t have the same groove…
In my personal opinion the album sounds good…and it gets very catchy
songs but not all; there are 3-4 songs that seem they don’t get
off the ground for what concerns the groove….
In general I really like this band;
They have blended 2-3 typical mysterious and charming music
styles , and the final outcome is absolutely original and agreeable!…I
really wish to listen to a very masterpiece from them in the future…Now
I can’t but suggest you to look for them, it’s one of the most
in this new year! Long live to Nude!
