365 Days of Writing Prompts: Day 54
Write about what you did last weekend as though you’re a
music critic reviewing a new album.
The album is titled Restless Nights and consists of 5 theatrical tracks, each running within the 10-15 minute range. It is a mixture of Blues, Jazz, Alternative and Metal-inspired pieces.
Track #1 – a sleepy Blues song titled These Restless Feet Blues is mournful, guilt-ridden and somber. A throw-back to early Blues tunes about hard labor and misfortune.
Track #2 – a smooth Jazz song with a saxophone solo titled Love in the Mist is a reminder of long walks in the rain with romance in full bloom. The song is mellow, relaxed and the sax solo is reminiscent of Kenny G. and David Sanborn .
Track #3 – a dark Alternative song titled Death Becomes Me is disturbing and raw, filled with bouts of screams and whimpering cries. A mixture of rap and vocals, this song combines the styles of Linkin Park and Eminem.
Track #4 – a guitar-infused Gothic Metal song titled Vampire Lover is sensual, erotic and the guitar rips tingles up your spine. The deep vocals and operatic sequences are a reminder of Type O Negative and Within Temptation.
Track #5 – a forceful Metal song titled Restless Nights, which is also the album’s title, is shocking with a sense of impending doom. The lead singer’s vocals capture the essence of Disturbed and Metallica.
(Since I am not a music critic and have no idea what I am doing, this is the best I could come up with… definitely one of the harder prompts so far.)
