🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

Genre/Influences: Dark-Folk, Chanson.

Format: Digital, Vinyl.

Background/Info: Rome remains prolific and strikes back with a good-old single format featuring two songs. The vinyl edition is strictly limited to 500 copies which makes the work a collector’s item.

Content: You’ll rapidly understand why Rome released “No Second Troy” as a single. The title song features more Electronic arrangements getting a richer sound. The other song left reveals a melancholic sensation.

+ + + : “No Second Troy” is a perfect single. It’s a cool song mixing the familiar Rome ingredients with an extra Dark-Pop touch on top of the chorus. It has something catchy and elevating.

– – – : The B-side track “Body English” sounds like a pure B-side; not that bad, but nothing exceptional compared to the title song.

Conclusion: A nice collector’s item for Rome fans. This is fully enjoyable Dark-Folk/Noir-Pop music.

Best songs: “No Second Troy”.

Rate: 7½.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
