article imageReview: Alexander Kariotis and Rock Opera Orchestra soar on new album Special

By Markos Papadatos     Feb 15, 2014 in Entertainment
Rock and opera singer, the ever-talented Alexander Kariotis and his Rock Opera Orchestra released his brand new studio album on February 4, 2014.
It opens with the rock-opera tune "Nessun Dorma- No One Sleeps" and it is followed by the rich and moving "Lucky in Love."
"Pietà, Signore - Save This Soul" is quite versatile and his vocals are slightly reminiscent of Josh Groban.
"Lennon in Heaven" has a catchy beat to it and it's another soaring vocal by Kariotis.
The instrumentation and vocals on "Home- Prelude XXI" is stunning. "Non T'amo Più - I Don't Love You Any More" is another refreshing tune, where Kariotis showcases his trademark pipes.
"Le Rêve - The Dream" is a gorgeous ballad and "Vesti La Giubba" is more modern than the other songs on the album, but it works well.
"Ho Bisogno Di Te - I Need You" is a collaboration with esteemed American saxophonist David Sanborn. Kariotis' CD closes with a remix of "Veti La Giubba."
The Verdict
Overall, Alexander Kariotis has released a solid new studio album. I was pleasantly surprised with how great it sounded and found it to be a nice treat. Kariotis' vocals are distinct, refreshing and powerful. It garners an A rating.
