When the Devil Starts to Pray

I don't know which song is my favorite; Tesse? Solomon? Madeline? Claudia Jolie?
All of them dance on the salty tongue of Michael Caruso and his gravely voice with angst, desire, pain. . .
Caruso opens the door to the raw emotions of the heart. He wraps his voice around a rhythm, a character, a lyric and pulls the last drop out, stretching it for us to feel.

Each song is crafted with intense detail, wringing the most out of each note.

I sing myself to sleep on Madeline with her nasty little pocket rocket and her disdain for those who think they must have her. But Solomon reaches inside to my sins and beckons me with its haunting melody. Tesse is so familiar; I understand the tedium of moving on after a loss. Every song has a story that reveals the universal truths.

There is not a lightweight piece in this collection.
These are not merely songs: they are an adventure.
Caruso is brilliant. His music is beautiful; his words are an odyssey. I highly recommend this album.

Discovering The Essence of Michael Caruso

In listening to my recent download of this emotional EP, I couldn't help but be struck by the total diversity of the songs.

It begins with the Michael Caruso's haunting tune "When The Devil Starts To Pray" which screams "True Blood". "Madelyn" takes us to the dark side, but something in us wants to be there with her. "Tell Me What You Will" features the dual talents of Michael Caruso and Glenn Goss. "For Tessa" is about loss, letting go, and trying to move on. "Solomon" reminds us that our "heart already knows". "Guns of Love" is a tribute to our soldiers and a prayer that "Guns of Love put an end to War." "Claudia Jolie" is a musical portrait carefully woven by Michael Caruso that by the end of the song you see know her. The reprise of "For Tessa" with its gospel choir seems to move from loss to hope in the hereafter.

This is a great record and one I would certainly recommend. It's honest, it's tragic and it's triumphant. Five Stars, Michael Caruso, Five Stars!
