Customer Reviews

Very talented musicians.
Keith Makela
Nova is best known for his self-titled 1982 debut (and the hit single "Fantasy"), but the overlooked Twitch may just be his best work overall.
Justin G.
More good keyboard and guitar use.

Many people may say that Aldo's first release was his best...but in my opinion this is the definitive Nova! The songs are all stronger here and so are the vocals...Why this album was not a smash sales wise is beyond me, and must go down in history as one of lifes great mysteries (together with lack of chart success for Angel). Every song is perfectly crafted AOR, with stella musicianship (a trade mark of this great artist). Listen to the magestic glory of "Surrender Your Heart", "Fallen Angel" and "Stay" and you'll know what I mean! "Lay Your Love On Me" is worthy of a mention purely for striking similarities to the great masked marauders Kiss with "Heaven's On Fire." My recommendation would be that if you can buy any Aldo Nova CD start here and then get the rest...cause at the end of the day all releases by this great man will satisfy! Where are you Aldo? I keep looking towards the skies!

Originally released in 1985, Twitch was the third album from Canadian singer/guitarist/keyboardist Aldo Nova. Nova is best known for his self-titled 1982 debut (and the hit single "Fantasy"), but the overlooked Twitch may just be his best work overall.

It says something that Nova, who was often brought in to help produce and write songs for other artists, was forced to accept outside help (including background vocals by Fiona Flanagan and Michael Bolton) with this album. Reluctant or not, Nova still turned in a terrific performance, and the result is one of the best examples of glossy melodic rock the mid `80s had to offer. The melodies are catchy, the synths are none too subtle, the guitar solos are perfect for `80s action movie training sequences, and even the bright cover reinforces the Miami Vice soundtrack vibe Twitch has going on. There's no "Fantasy" here, which meant the album didn't make much of a splash on the charts, but nearly every song on Twitch (aside from the throwaway instrumental title track that closes the album) could have been a radio or MTV hit.

I'm obviously a fan of this album, and can't see anyone who's still crazy about `80s era AOR and melodic rock not absolutely loving Twitch. Yes, it's soulless, plastic corporate rock, but it's soulless, plastic corporate rock perfection.

Edition Notes: Wounded Bird reissued Twitch in 2009. Like all Wounded Bird reissues, it has not been remastered, has no bonus material, and has minimal liner notes. It does, however, put this great album back into circulation, which is long overdue.

What's the 4-1-1?

Canadian guitar sensation Aldo Nova was riding high with the release of his 1982 self-titled debut. Propelled by the infectious pop-metal classic "Fantasy," Aldo Nova went on to sell over two million copies. Aldo's 1983 follow-up Subject: Aldo Nova didn't fare quite so well. Executives at his record label were disappointed with the fact that Nova chose to do something different, rather than the same old same old. Subject: Aldo Nova was sort-of a concept album that wasn't necessarily bad, but not what you'd expect after hearing his debut.

For Aldo Nova's third album Twitch, the record company took the reigns and forced Nova to rely on outside songwriters and incorporate a more polished, keyboard heavy sound. Aldo has gone on record denouncing the whole Twitch experience, but fans of melodic rock beg to differ. It may have sucked for Nova not to have had as much control of the album, but the final product wasn't bad at all. With so many pros working on it, how could it be bad?

Get your dark shades, florescent t-shirts, a white sport coats ready because "Tonight (Lift Me Up)" will take you right back to the days of Miami Vice with its pulsing keyboard changes and fuzzy guitar power chords. The chorus hook is undeniable. Nova pours out plenty of emotions on "Rumors of You." I could see this track actually working for Rod Stewart at the time. "If Looks Could Kill" pushes the keyboards to the background and puts Nova's guitar skills on prominent display. Multi-layered vocal harmonies dominate the chorus.

Its more flashy guitar runs for Nova on "Heartless," as he lets out his frustrations about his latest love. The track has another memorable chorus that could easily pass for an eighties movie theme.

Aldo writes some good pop songs and this album is no disappointment. I wasn't as thrilled with this release as I was his first two, but it still holds up and isn't a disappointment really. "Surrender Your Heart" is a great song and so is the infectious "Long Hot Summer." Aldo is a great songwriter and musician and his music is cool to listen to.

Another great song writing by Aldo. His music hasn't changed much since his first album Fantasy. If you are a rock music lover as I, then you'll love Aldo Nova. He's one of few original musician who creates his own unique style with wonderful soul touching melodies of synths in his music. it's sad that he didn't get the credit he really deserved. Personally, If I was with a record company, I'd wouldn't watse not 1 second to lose Aldo to sign the record contract for another decae at least. I am very picky when it comes to rock musicians. And I must say, Aldo is one of my favorite.
