If Only by Ali Rice: Review
I was overwhelmed by standing amid a large crowd, I put my headphones on and played ‘If Only’ by Ali Rice, and suddenly everything was a whole lot better. The intro of the song, where people’s voices can be heard before the music initiates is the exact feeling I described earlier. ‘If Only’ is a combination of Pop Rock, Groove Rock, and just plain Euphoria.
Ali Rice truly composed a beautiful track. ‘If Only’ has an excellent bass arrangement, it plays notes that add a nice effect to the track. The guitars are very atmospheric, whether they’re playing a plucking, or a muted riff, it sounds remarkable. My most treasured portion of the track is that otherworldly guitar solo. Oh my God, that build-up was absolutely insane, and when the actual solo began I was transported to another universe. The tension of the solo is expressed so audaciously with incredible pull-offs (that is the bending of the strings). Now, about Ali’s voice. He truly has a dazzling range, and it’s just so darn clean! Every word is clear, and it’s all very comforting to hear!
Overall, ‘If Only’ is a phenomenal track that deserves recognition. I believe this song will allow people to be mesmerized by it. Anyone who’ll listens to this track will be blown away by it. Ali, originally from the United Kingdom, is now recognized as a distinguished solo performer and multi-instrumentalist. In his music, he explores ideas like societal constructs, love, happiness, and the challenges of the modern world.
