A variety of influences and styles come into play from classic rock to classic country and folk on Don Gallardo’s latest effort Sweetheart Radio Revolution, etc…making for an incredibly well-crafted album of songs that can best be classified as Americana. “Sitting On Top of the World” introduces you to the album and you instantly see an alt. Country style coming to the forefront surrounded by Tom Petty-esque vocals that wrap around you. As you move through the album this same mid-tempo style can be heard on cuts like the foot-tapping “Today” and “Days Long Gone.” However the majority of this album sees Gallardo focused on the more folk based singer/songwriter side to his sound. Cuts like album closer “Take Me Home” and “One Falls In, One Falls Out” sees him present an offering full of charm that presents a certain degree of rawness to his coffeehouse feel as he weaves his lyrics together capturing his emotion perfectly. As said earlier, there are plenty of influences that came into play for Gallardo’s new album and his ability to craft them all together to give listeners a raw and edgy feel wrapped around solid songwriting is simply amazing. This is an album full of very well crafted songs, both musically and lyrically, that encompasses enough variety to attract a wide range of listeners making this album well worth checking out for song lovers.
