The Artist I recently checked out the latest CD from New York based artist Paul Collica entitled It's Not Me - It's You. released in 2011. This is one experienced writer that has contributed his musical score to many TV Commercials and Movis over the years. He is comparable to Danny Elfman in that regard.


The band Line-up includes Collica on all instrumentation - but mainly guitar and vocals. I would say he possesses above average to advanced alternative rock playing and singing abilities, and above average writing. You will find a musical personality that is rich with hooky and marketable rock that sticks with you long after the CD is over. Timing is spot on within this genera and musical grooves. Collica can hold his own on the guitar and vocals, but more importantly he delivers music that is highly entreating.  The strongest aspect of the production is the polished crystal clean sound quality and amazing musicall touches by Collica. The music possesses straight forward modern Alternative Rock and could even be classified as Pop-Rock. All in all great music to get your head wrapped around. Will remind you of classic Fuel, Collective Soul, and Dishwalla. The songs Simply put - deep music with thought provoking lyrical content. I kept waiting for a weak song to come down the pike - I eventually gave up on that. The vibe Overall very upbeat, progressive, with amazing stories that possess incredible highs and lows. The CD has its shares of positive and truthful moments. Simply put  - very much like life itself this CD personifies life experience, with music that are 100% honest & pure. There is no attempt to sugarcoat the truth. The production is professional grade from start to finish. There's not many songs you can listen to time and time again. Has a crisp and clean production aftertaste to it. The good Crystal clear recording quality. Solid production value. Entertaining music and rock solid songs. The bad CD tends to be a bit repetitive. The whole CD sounds like once very long song. The ugly Nothing to report.  


The verdict It's not me...It's you by Paul Collica has everything: good chops, fancy sampling, entertaining songs, heart felt vocals and music that covers allot of bases Rock, Alternative Rock. to even Power Pop to straight-up Rock. The Bottom Line WARNING - Listening to this music will open you eyes to the possibilities of what could be.
