Alex Genadinik delivers a heartfelt work on the lovely “Oh Michaelangelo – Beautiful Valentine’s Day Love Song: Inspired By Michaelangelo’s Creation Of Adam”. By far the very soul of the song comes from the pure poetry of the lyricism. His voice has a warm, inviting earnestness to it for it feels so soothing, a true joy to behold. Sung with such tenderness and with an arrangement that further emphasizes its kind spirit. Stylistically, he incorporates elements of classical, chamber pop, ambient and even hints of rock into the fray.
The piano playing brings to mind the gentle beauty of George Winston’s output, for, like those works, there is an impressionistic quality that guide it along. Quite beautiful with its clever allusions to both the natural world, the art world, and navigation of relationships Alex’s storytelling brings to mind Jon Brion’s sophisticated yet emotionally impactful work. Best of all, the piece has a timelessness to the whole thing a sense of pure bliss that emerges over the course of the entire work. Thoughtful yet touching, Alex manages a careful balance with something quite stately.
With a delicate, fragile melody the song comes into focus. Piano introduces the track with a poignancy that is truly profound. The chords have such hope and optimism imbued deep within them, for every single gesture is amplified in the beginning. Kept to the essentials, the song gradually works its way into becoming something all-encompassing. Upon the inclusion of the vocals the song truly begins as he has a crystal-clear voice and a caring demeanor that is reflected in the carefully balanced verses, each one cascading with a pastoral hue.
Sweeping chords further add to the dreamy presence, one that is filled to the brim with such light and color. His voice proves to have a commanding yet compassionate quality as it has a true artistry to it. The rest of the sound comes into view, with the at first quiet and patient drums helping to dovetailed into the groove. From here he transforms the song, from its initial classical inclinations into something that feels much more like a potpourri of styles and approaches. Vocals center the entirety of the thing and from his voice all else flows in a way that has a natural sense of grace.
Done with such poignancy, Alex Genadinik creates a soulful world with the powerful “Oh Michaelangelo – Beautiful Valentine’s Day Love Song: Inspired By Michaelangelo’s Creation Of Adam”.
