Rocker Frank Palangi comes to us from upstate New York with hard rock and acoustic tunes with great compositions and heartfelt lyrics. Palangi creates good music that has all the elements of what a good rock song is constructed with. He has the potential to have a successful career in the rock world.
“I Am Ready” contains thrashing guitars, punishing drum beats, and Palangi’s throaty roar. With a deep, raspy voice similar to Daughtry’s, Palangi gives listeners a catchy hard rock song. The song has a nice melody, good arrangement, and emotional lyrics. “I’m Waiting” is another solid rock song, a little slower in tempo than the first song. Again, the track is catchy and has a hard beat with good use of the guitars and drums. Palangi showcases his gritty vocals– here, he sings in a lower register, which is best for his type of voice. But he shows his range by also successfully screaming in a higher tone of voice. The deeper singing range ties in to the overall dark, moody feel of the song. The slinky, slightly sinister feel intrigues the listener, and pulls them in. A faster tempo song, “Driving These Lines,” starts out strong with a good, catchy beat that has a slight rockabilly element to it. The fast drumming keeps the song exciting. Palangi sings in a higher register, which puts a slight strain on his vocals. His voice works best in a lower range, but he still sounds decent on this particular track. The only danger he runs into is having his songs sound similar to each other. By the third song, its hard to remember which song is which since they all have similar elements and a similar sound to them. By branching out and experimenting a little more, Palangi can avoid a monotonous feel to his music.
Frank Palangi is a rocker with a good voice, heartfelt lyrics, and a talent for catchy tunes. He does best while singing in a lower tone, and should stick to songs that showcase his deeper range. Also, Palangi should work on expanding a little in song composition so that his tunes don’t all sound the same. With a little fine tuning in these areas, Palangi has the potential to be the next great rock star!
