Hard Times by Cris Mantello: Review
“Hard Times” was performed and written by Cris Mantello, he is a country and honky tonk based genre artist. His sound gives the vibe of 50s and 60s era sound. And the meaningful lyrics make it all different.
The song “Hard Times” starts with a slide guitar and then transitions into blues rock and country overdriven choppy riff. The guitar riff sounds a lot like a Lynyrd Skynyrd type sound, and the sound of steel guitar and mandolin gives the song a flavorful flavor. His previous songs which are all classic country-based genres brought the 50s and 60s sound spectacularly.
The running bass and the breaks in between the song capture the emotion of the listeners. The southern country sound of the vocalist with the steady beats of drums gives the listeners an emotional connection. Consider the possibility that some people’s sole aim in life is to undermine your self-assurance and value. The song’s lyrics are also strong. While some people may find the song’s melody and sentiment to be more relatable, others will enjoy just the song.
In the end, the song’s catchy guitar riffs and intense drum beats will make the listeners want to start swinging and feeling the vibes immediately. Especially the chorus is so melodic and demonstrates his impressive vocal prowess. The extraordinary solo part will keep the listeners hooked till the end and wait for his latest upcoming tracks to come out.
