Genre/Influences: Electro-pop, electro-wave.

Format: Digital.

Background/Info: Canadian synth-pop artist Gary Flanagan started composing his music in 1999. You might have heard him on a compilation or one of his numerous albums released by labels such as Ninthwave. “Son Of Parkway” was originally released by the end of 2018 and is the thirteenth full length album by the artist.

Content: Gary Flanagan composes electro-pop music in the purest sense of the meaning. It’s not a flash back to the roots, but simply a sound that has been always inspired by the good-old retro analogue magic from the 80s. The songs are melodic, sometimes carried by a solid bass line (which even reminds me of Fad Gadget) and sung by the artist’s fragile timbre of voice.

+ + + : This work stands for sweet, vintage electro-pop music. It’s an easy listening voyage revealing captivating sound treatments and cool melody lines. I’m not familiar with the entire discography of Gary Flanagan, but I have to admit this album belongs to the best works I’ve ever heard. Songs such as “Sunny Mornings In Montreal”, “Don’t Stop”, “A Night Story” and “We Keep Pushing On” are great exposures from the artist’s skills.

– – – : I think the production of the vocals could be just a little bit more passionate.

Conclusion: This is an album that has the power to gladden our hearts!

Best songs: “A Night Story, “We Keep Pushing On”, “Sunny Mornings In Montreal”, “Don’t Stop”.

Rate: (7½).
