"Believe" (Self-produced; 2004)
Reviewed by Snidermann
Michael Gibbons' self-produced release, "Believe," is a solid, well done CD. "Believe" is dedicated (and I use the words directly from the CD cover - I hope Michael does not mind) "To all Emergency Service Personal: FDNY, NYPD, PAPD, EMS, all other Civil Servants, Unionized and organized Laborers, and all who honorably sacrificed their lives during the rescue operation, September 11, 2001: Your warrior souls forever live."
Like those words, the lyrics on "Believe" are eloquent and soulfully sung, each telling a heartfelt story buoyed by some simply excellent guitar work.
I would say the only thing missing from this exceptional CD is record company to get it out to the people and a producer to give the CD one more final polish.
Michael Gibbons is an extraordinary rock'n'roll guitarist and storyteller and I think he has a great future in this business.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
