Xavier Toscano – Feels so Good


This is such a complex, amazing and dramatic album what else can I say in the end? Feels so Good by Xavier Toscano is more than amazing and dramatic, it’s also extremely invigorating and infectious. It has a very danceable and entertaining quality to it as well. The intro tracks “Feels So Good” and “Never Wanna Leave” gives you the impression as if you were in a hot dance club, or perhaps a Bruno Mars concert. The combination of thick beats, catchy melodies, and emotional charged synth delivery leaves you breathless. The music reminiscent of acts such as Bruno Mars, Jay Sean, Usher and even Justin Timberlake. Toscano has a really strong tonality foundation coupled with bossy rhythms, hypnotic vocals and a spaced out goodness. Without a doubt, it’s impossible to deny the superiority of Toscano who has a rock solid look and very marketable sound. It’s epically upbeat as the drums and the bass lines just help push the album forward, and the vibe, if you pay attention carefully, has a modern day sonic dance pop feel to it. The production value is off the charts. . As the CD evolves it showcases some dramatic combination of Toscano’s voice and Electonica overtone really shine bright on tracks like “The Remedy”, “Castles in the Sky”, and “Nas-T-Ice.” The drum/synth/vocal combos have an important role on the majority of the pieces as well. On many these tracks Toscano is clearly in charge of giving the mood assigning to each song. The addition of the ambient tidbits every now and then gives many song a jazzy pop with an ambient/eletronica touch.

My favorite track is by far “Runaway”

In conclusion, here’s a CD release I’ve been dying to get my hands on for a while. I was just unable to stumble across him until today. It’s also very in your face, a real attention grabber and a grand concept that’s sure to get many peoples attention this Summer. From the production level, to the vocal talent, “Feels So Good” by Xavier Toscano is the real deal and delivers in grand fashion. With the advent of Toscano’s superlative signature sound via his trademark look/sound, everything here works terrifically well. It will keep you in a state of wonder from start to finish.
