Listening to the first song on the album “Man’s Best Friend” I couldn’t help but keep nodding and wondering how Alec Berlin was able to make one song with so many instrumentations. the beginning of the second song left me in shock.
At this point, I can’t even imagine what the other tracks are going to be like, although it has no vocals the 11 tracks album carries so many emotions that words cannot even describe.
Throughout the entire album, Alec blends genres from country, to folk, rock, acoustic, funk, and groove amongst others.
“Man’s Best Friend” is a pop-rock music, that was by a 25-year veteran of the NYC music scene who has spent most of his years as an in-demand sideman in major studios. When asked about the inspiration behind his album, this is what he had to say:
“It started one night when Berlin woke up from a dream in which he was listening to a long-lost hit song that no one had ever heard before. He promptly grabbed his guitar and learned the music from his dream”
He went on to say:
“Over the next month, Berlin kept dreaming songs. Gradually it dawned on him that there was a batch of material gestating in his subconscious. So instead of waiting for additional songs to come to him, he went looking for them – and found them there for the taking.”
Alec Berlin has played with Green Day, Elton John, James Taylor, and Rob Thomas. The songs have no vocals and that is exactly how it serves it purpose, “Man’s Best Friend” is tantalizing and mind-boggling, feels like been on a rollercoaster. “Man’s Best Friend” is his 11th release from a 12-song project.
