If you like the band Journey, you will love Hugo. Not only does he look like Journey's legendary Steve Perry, but he sings like him too. This is the third solo album release that Hugo has had and is by far the best album I have heard thus far. Hugo had been known as the front man for Valentine and Open Skyz, but now he has set out to realizing his own albums, and is doing a fantastic job of it!
The album contains twelve amazing songs: "Hand in Hand", "It's the Love", "Prelude, 4ever Endeavor", "Fire in the Night", "I'll Learn to Live Without You, Dawn", "Just so You Know", "Don't Wanna Say Goodbye Tonight", "Ever Time You Walk Away", "Just to be with you Tonight", "Here I Am", and "Hold Me".
This album gives us a look into just how incredible Hugo's vocal abilities are as well as his ability to write music. Each song will throw you into a whirlwind of emotions and there is no dead air between tracks, the entire album flows smoothly from beginning to end.
Even though this album had a low budget to create, there is no mistaking the melodic rock and power of the music. Most of the songs are up-tempo with the occasional fast guitar rift or drum solo, but this is a normal occurrence for Hugo.
This album was purchased for around $10 at The Exchange. It is a one disc CD with a hard case and includes a lyrics insert for each song, a poster, as well as a lyrics sheet in Japanese. This CD is a great investment to your music collection!
