ALFONZETTI picture
Highly rated vocalist in the Melodic Rock field Matti Alfonzetti had made his name with British Hard Rockers JAGGED EDGE and domestic artists BAM BAM BOYS, WASA EXPRESS and SKINTRADE among others. Alfonzetti had also had experience demoing with TALISMAN.

Upon JAGGED EDGE's demise Alfonzetti travelled back to his homeland to front the Pop-AOR act BOXER for an eponymous album in 1998. He would then assemble the suitably titled ALFONZETTI. Musically the band explored commercial Hard Rock with AOR balladry of distinction.

Joining him for the debut 'Ready' album would be the cream of Swedish Rock in the form of BAM BAM BOYS guitarist Goran Elmqvist, BALTIMORE and SKINTRADE guitarist Stefan Bergstrom, TREAT and TALISMAN drummer Jamie Borger and even AB/CD's bassist Bjorn 'Nalle' Påhlsson. Backing vocals would come from the renowned YNGWIE MALMSTEEN frontman Mats Levén and ex-GLORY and SKINTRADE man Jonas Ostman with keyboards in the hands of Jocke Svalberg.

ALFONZETTI's 'Here Comes The Night', his third solo offering, came out pretty late in 2011 and steals the attention and I've seen some friends rated this pretty high, even went up to their top 10 of that year. I do think this is a great album, but I'm not sure that it's really worth that extremely high rating because despite of some killer tracks here such as 'Set Me Free', 'Heartbreaker', 'Don't Listen To Your Heart', and 'Lay Your Love On Me', there are few weaker moments such as 'Why Can't You Love Me', 'Losing You', or 'Rock N Roll Heart'.

This album was handled by only two guys. Matti himself played bass and guitar while singing the whole songs and his other friend is Daniel Flores who plays drums and also keys. But to me, it doesn't sound like a one-time project and it still feels like a whole band playing a complete album. Alfonzetti still has that great vocal and I need to underline that the gems of this album were on the ballads, so probably not really for those who prefer heavier music, even though you can still find some good uptempo tracks here as well, and before I forget, 'I Will Never Let You Fall' is also a great track.

My biggest complain is that this album is just way too short. Clocking below 40 minutes, that reminds me of old SLAYER or TESTAMENT albums, and I think providing couple more songs would have been resulting a better output. I gave this a solid 80%, depends on the mood, probably swing as high as 85%. If you love melodic rock and AOR, I think Alfonzetti has done a pretty good job here.
