Spectrum is the second and highly anticipated studio album by Riccardo Romano, historical member of the SRB; we are faced with a complex and courageous work, 11 tracks that literally strip the artist naked (note also the beautiful artwork by Davide Costa). The journey, an introspective story in the artist's life, paints, through the usual use of magical melodies and real texts full of pathos, an experience made of dreams, falls, obstacles and pains, with the sweetness and generosity through which we had known with the first work 'B612' (catalog Ma.Ra.Cash Records). The fulcrum around which the album revolves is the Spectrum, otherwise known as the 'Autistic Spectrum', which RR has been able to paint through bold strokes and dense colors that alternate continuously with watercolor brushstrokes. In each track Riccardo tells and tells us about imagined life projects and the overwhelming reality that overlaps continuously; Sounds and arrangements, thanks to the unmistakable guitars of guest friend Steve Rothery, (also present on the first album) involve listening after listening. A mature and more intense work than ever, which is appreciated at each subsequent listening.
The tracks are divided into two suites, interspersed with the track number 6 Dejà Vu (... who are you now? ...) a real poem dedicated to the mother.
Suite 1 (tracks 1-5). In the Name of the Son (I) Waxen Wings - In the Name of the Son (II) Endless Promises - In the Name of the Son (III) Deny - In the Name of the Son (IV) A Dream of a Lifetime-
