Giovanni Mandala's solo debut entitled "Hydra" is an enlightening collection of adult alternative compositions. Looking deep within the soul, "Hydra" takes listeners on a pleasing quest for inner peace and second chances. A lyrical concoction of life experiences, personal reflections and heart-felt love stories make this CD emotionally and spiritually gratifying. Furthermore, catchy electric guitar riffs and an overall tight band sound provide the perfect musical medium though which Giovanni's inspirational tales are best told. "Fantasy" stands out as vocally superior, flaunting Giovanni's soulful voice and memorable melodies. Perhaps the most appealing quality of "Hydra" is its continual change of atmosphere. No two songs bear resemblance of each other, nor share the same theme or mood – a remarkable achievement. Moreover, industry-standard production marked by clarity and balance is the cherry-on-the-top of this package! Followers of Rob Thomas, Goo Goo Dolls, and LifeHouse will find ten new adult rock anthems in this clever collection!
