||"No Words Needed" is the perfect
name for an album for a guitar virtuoso. If you play well enough you
don't need any words, all you need is the sound that comes from the
guitar. This is what Michael Søbygge showcases on this CD.
He basically tries to outplay himself, with shredding leads, melodic
arpeggios, and spine tingling solos. Michael uses many forms of music
to compose these solo albums. Classical, Spanish, metal, and quite
a few more styles fly out of his guitar. I rather enjoyed all his
acoustic solos and leads, they show quite a bit of style and feeling.
The majority of this CD is not metal, it's more to an acoustic symphony
that changes to distortion to get a dramatic feeling. The eleven tracks
on this CD last for over forty-four minutes. That is eleven tracks
of all instrumental music. The production of the CD is a little sloppy
and may need a little cleaning up, but it doesn't take away from the
ability of Michael. Some of his riffs and leads might be a little
chaotic and off signature, it threw me off at first, but I'm sure
it's just artist expression. Check out Michael Søbygge if you
enjoy listening to a person really play a guitar.
