ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bob Forbes created the bandname "RedEyeC" in 2005 to which he has been composing individual and collaborative songs. "Shalia" has been a dream come true - much thanks to fellow bandmates Pascal Gregory, Minouche, and Corrado Rossi for helping this CD to materialize.

Reviews:

I can say without fear of contradiction that this is one of, if not THE best piece of music I've heard on this site. Heck, why limit it to this site. I'm really lost for words which is probably a good thing because otherwise I would just start gushing.

I’ll get the disclaimers out of the way first. I have known RedEyeC, Pascal and Minouche on another site for some time now and we have become good friends. I've also been in a couple of collabs with RedEyeC.

Although RedEyeC (I’ll call him Bob for ease of convenience) is one of the finest guitarists I’ve heard, he has recently been doing vocals and this is the first example of his work I’ve heard where we get both the guitar and his vocals.

The song (Shalia) itself is a beautiful ballad. Bob has a gentle but powerful voice (if that makes sense) with a wonderful timbre in the upper register. It’s a perfect voice for this love ballad. The synth pads (I assume that’s Pascal) behind the vocals fit perfectly with the tone of Bob’s voice. The chorus is just gorgeous and the use of delay is beautiful.

The guitar work is powerful yet lyrical at the same time.
A wonderful collaboration with lovely lyrics from Minouche.
Highly recommended!

Seamlessly these tracks build from a gentle pretty state into one of incredibly awesome power and again seamlessly drops back into the tranquil.

This is a must listen to. If you don't download it you're nuts.

Well bob... this is more than lovely... I hear immediately that pascal's music inspires you as much as it does me... everything just comes out special with syngularity... was that tapping I heard?... or you just have very long fingers... but that second segment... what melody... man you know your harmony bro...
you left the simple scales, blues and major, behind a long time ago... you must be somewhat like valkir and me... a Holdworth fan you see... someone who shows an affinity for the master of harmony... gotta hear this again my friend...it's all just brilliant but that bit at 2:10 is profoundly deep... the simplest part technically but so rich musically... I think it's when you articulate those brief changes to the four minor in the middle of that I-IV-IVm major progression that's so beautiful and deep... yo... dawg... you is awesome... thanks for the DL man...

Just wrote a review concerning the level of difficulty in conveying emotion, and here, that goal has been achieved. Very powerful pieces, that speak to anyone with the good sense to listen. I particularly love the way you hold those notes at the end of a few of those runs, and bleed them . . . RJ

One SMOKIN' tsunami playing!...& just LOVIN' that guitar, man! Makes the listener FEEL the waves rushing in, hopefully viewed from a HIGH POINT (the song structure contains JUST the right kinda' energy to MAKE ya' high - not that I'd know anything about such). This one gets an IMMEDIATE rating of MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED from my energy-starved ears!

Gentlemen....
RedEyeC,one of THE best guitarists around today IMHO.
Pascal, a sound magician.
Put the two together and we have a crossover of ideas and styles that lend into something WONDERFUL.
If these songs had been done by one of the legends of progressive music,they would have been hailed as reinventing the genre by going back and yet going forward.
They would have spoke at great length how this song has reminded them that the MOST important thing about music and musicans,is HOW WELL YOU CAN PLAY,not how fashionable your new look is,or your new dance routine.
My congrats to you gentlemen,this is CLASSIC.
4 x yes.
Nigel.

It's always a great pleasure listening to Bob's music.
His melodic way of composing and singing is so well blended with his amazing guitar playing and catchy arrangements!!
From "If only" to "Goodbye for now" you will have a beautiful journey into his always interesting and captivating music.
His voice and great guitar playing make the rest: with solid guitar solos, original musical visualizations and a warm, so comfortable voice
it's impossible to not stop and listen...
I simply love this Album!!

The power of songwriting...
I first heard Bob Forbes' music in summer 2005, after he started to present some huge guitar instrumental tracks as REDEYEC on a well-frequented independent music site - and I was immediately in love with his unique guitar picking and last but not least I became really a true fan of his ability to create classic rock arrangements of cinematic power and with a clear vision, performed by a master of ALL the instruments, and I guess I already told him a thousand times. Well, this is no wonder - after decades of making music in different genres with his band Red Eye Country and quite successful as Country singer in the Eighties as well, this artist always loved to follow his passionate journey between popular directions, with the help of his beloved guitars and also modern equipment and tools, and he never forgot his own authentic expression and style.

Besides his many instrumental albums - "Collaboration", "Menagerie" and "Firebird", just to name the newest ones - Bob Forbes surprised his audience as a singer, with a beautiful album for the Christian genre in 2007. "From the church of St. Ann" proves a rare talent for songwriting in the way of super rock groups, similar to Matthew Fisher's Procol Harum and other idols of the classic rock era.

And the second vocal album "Shalia" is more than just a sequel of this additional path in Bob's music career... while the Christian messages had to be provided by softer moods and ballads with sometimes hymnic expression, "Shalia" will blow you away with personal lyrics and powerful, dramatic moments in "If Only" and "Goodbye for Now", and catchy songs like "My Mistake" and "Secret" should work nicely on air. "Why the Children" is a strong duet with the incredible Australian artist Leanne Bugat, and they both continue - in a cooler way -, with "Just a Game". And Bob goes so different ways with his mesmerizing upbeat-electronica track "Chronicles of Pascal and Minouche", including very nice sound experiments, while keeping the energy of a rock song. Bob goes progressive ways with the almost epic "Island of Desire", a firework of moods between bitter sweet ballad ways and angry rock expression. Last but not least, the two ballads "Shalia" and "Day by Day" (written by Corrado Rossi) are the tracks which I would call "favorite songs" for the moment... but that can change every day.

"Shalia" is a piece of art and a work from the heart, a true songwriter's great album filled up with melodic tracks between light and shades, there's not a single "average track". Bob knows how to awake the magic of classical rock again, touching us with his voice and his honest way of making music, which does never appear as just a routine. I can't get this album out of my disc changer!
