LASGO surprises even me!,
This review is from: Something (Audio CD)
First of all, I listen to Classic, Hard Rock, metal, glam-metal, and even some Jazz and country. From Chris LeDoux to Yngwie Malmsteen. I play the guitar and have more musical knowledge and appreciation than most, and more than all my friends combined. I don't even know if Lasgo's music genre is trance or techno, but I don't care! I'm not into bass, but after I first heard Lasgo on Youtube... I was impressed. I'm no expert at techno-type music, but I think I have a great ear for good music! Of course, I don't like even half of Lasgo's songs, but I think they have a dozen or so very good songs. I can't say that for any other techno band, even as I try hard to find some!
The Lasgo songs that I just love listening to are: Surrender, Deep in your Heart, Follow You, Something, Blue, Alone, and Cloud Surfers.
Sure, the heavy synth sound can be repetitive, but these songs seem to have what most don't...longevity. Some of these songs may be old, but for some reason, I love listening to them in my car or at the gym! It's strange to say this, but it's the careful blending of catchy lyrics, beautiful voice, and musical talent that works for me. I guess it stirs up some emotion in me that other styles of music can't. Maybe it's the visions of beautiful women, clubs, and sleek import cars that makes me feel alive in a strange trance-like state. Lasgo songs, unlike other bands, are not overly done in terms of in-your-face volume and noise. They have good breaks and rhythm. I just wish that there were more music like this...as I'm still looking.
Since Evi Goffin left, I haven't heard any new songs that are even close to the ones I've mentioned. I think that every good band has certain signature songs, and LASGO seems to have a lot more than any techno band I've listen to lately. So I hope this short review shows that Lasgo is not only very good, but succeeded to attract someone from the fringe like me...
