"Selections From The Cube" CDEP
Genre: singer / songwriter, pop,
pop / rock
After an intensely infectious opening
track about day-job frustration, this singer/songwriter effort
gradually loses steam over the remaining four tracks. "The Cube"
proves Sartori has some major chops if you're into mega-catchy
late 90s-ish pop and bring-it-down choruses. I swear I heard this
song's twin on the radio sometime in 1998. "I Knew You'd Come Along"
has its moments, but doesn't live up to what's before it - it simply
hasn't got the hooks. "Could You Be The One" is even more stagnant,
falling in serious Starbucks sampler territory. The latter two tracks
close out the disc as decent melodic concepts executed poorly. On
Selections From The Cube, Sartori shows what he's capable
of but doesn't live up to it past the first track. If his upcoming
album can stay in the good zone, he's going to have a gem.
Fun Fact: Owen
