Album Review

Canadian rock singer/songwriter Aldo Nova doesn't get enough credit (some cynics would say blame) for helping invent the 1980s pop-metal genre, which focused equally on hard rocking anthems and soaring power ballads. Aldo Nova appeared in 1982 complete with irresistible melodies and choruses, explosive guitar licks, and huge-sounding drums. It was a full year or more before Def Leppard, Night Ranger, Bon Jovi, and others would latch on to this formula and rocket to stardom. Nova wrote, produced, arranged, and performed his double-platinum debut album by himself, except for drums and some bass guitar and piano parts. Nova is quite proficient on guitar, but his secret weapon is his keyboard and synthesizer prowess. The hit single (and early MTV favorite) "Fantasy" cannot be denied; it's loaded with guitar and keyboard hooks as well as a catchy chorus. "Foolin' Yourself" has a more straightforward pop feel and it was a minor hit. "Ball and Chain" is the best-known power ballad on Aldo Nova, but the hypnotic "You're My Love" is better. "Hot Love" is propelled by several guitar solo bursts. "Heart to Heart" and "See the Light" are fast, energetic songs with crisp guitar riffs and swirling synthesizer lines. Aldo Nova is a minor classic.

Customer Reviews

AWESOME

I have been getting ready for work to this album for 20 years, (and more). I have wore out several cassettes and cd's of his. There is NOT a song on this album that lags. In my opinion, he is one of the most underrated musical artists in the business. If you only pick and choose a few songs from the album, you will not be disappointed, but the entire album is a must for your collection.

under appreciated

aldo is an under appreciated guitarist who has skill with the guitar, which is a excellent gift. its a sick album with good guitar even tho iTunes is missin one of his sickest songs,.."Heartless"

ALDO NOVA

If you love smooth blistering guitar and serious stereo seperation, you need to give this a listen. The fact that there are so few reviews is proof in itself that Aldo Nova is under-rated as a true guitar hero.

Canadian guitarist Aldo Nova (born Aldo Caporuscio in Montreal) was a relatively late bloomer musically, not learning how to play the instrument until he was 15. However, inspired by the playing of Jimi Hendrix and with a keen interest in jazz, Nova worked obsessively to master the instrument (along with keyboards) and became a hometown hero in the local clubs. While playing George Harrison in a production of Beatlemania, he worked after hours as a studio engineer and a 1982 publishing deal led to...
