Album Notes
"Momentum" is the first commercial digital synth-rock EP released by independent film/game composer George R. Powell (under the pseudonym of Setu Firestorm, a tradition kept from the 7 years of making digital synth-rock on the side from scoring films).

With each album, Powell attempts to change the rock sound to something of a different atmosphere. "Momentum" is a reflection of the 1980's synth-based pop/rock style that is rarely seen in the new millenium.

The album kicks off with an intro track, written by entertainer/writer Stephen Motroni, that introduces the listener to a story about a journalist who is taking a train on his travels and encounters a young woman. Upon talking to her, he finds out that she has run away from her family in an attempt to emancipate herself. The album flows through the conversation as the writer tries to persuade the girl that running away from your problems does not solve them, and he convinces her to at least write to her family to reconcile with them if she is determined to continue pursuing her own future.

Setu Firestorm - Momentum
If you’re like me, you best know film composer George R. Powell for his work on The Hero of Time, the 2009 Zelda fan film produced by BMB Finishes. Though I hold that film score in the highest regard, I’m reviewing Powell’s latest release today, which is of much different style. When not scoring films, Powell has been making digital synth-rock, under the monicker Setu Firestorm. He now releases his first rock EP, titled Momentum.

Momentum is six tracks, and about twenty minutes long. At 3.99 USD for the download, it isn’t too expensive. Throughout the EP, Powell displays excellence in production quality, and fleshes out his abilities as a songwriter. Though the vocals are not the best at times, Momentum has great moments, and I bet his next release will be of vast improvement.

Overall, I give it a 75%. It’s Powell’s first release as a rock musician, and there is great room for improvement. However, it has established a foundation for what I hope will be great growth and many more releases as an artist.

P.S. My favorite song from the album is "Bind." If you're interested in a single song download versus the whole EP, I recommend that one.
