Ben Draiman has joined forces with Raz Klinghoffer to bring listeners a new project called “Another Perfect Storm.”
Soul-grabbing melody is just half of the equation that makes up this album. Heavy guitar riffs are paired with remarkable vocals to create a sound that is bold enough to smack you in the face at times, but the album is — overall — very easy on the ears.
In songs such as “Really Want To,” strings add another layer to the tight guitars that pack a ferocious punch.
Ben pours his heart into his music with soaring, emotionally wrought vocals in songs like “Trust” and “Conversations.” Although the entire album will find itself on repeat in my music player, I have to say my favorite song is the title track, “Another Perfect Storm.” As I close my eyes and let the music wash over me, I can almost imagine myself raising my arms and flying away. The three-part harmonies pull the listener into the calm in the midst of the storm.
The lyrics and music mean as much to the fans as it does to the artists, and Ben has pulled his fans into the entire experience and made them love this project as much as he does. One of the greatest appeals of Ben Draiman’s music is that it allows his fans to share his emotions as they listen to the music.
The craftsmanship of this album is top-notch, and the album is well worth your time.
