Pat Reilly – Between Two Worlds Song Review
Today we are featuring another remarkable guitarist; Pat Reilly, from USA. We have reviewed his electrifying song; Between Two Worlds, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
Pat Reilly is another promising instrumental metal artist, a phenomenal guitar player I have discovered about a month ago with this song; Between Two Worlds, off from his single with the same title, which was released in 2019. Pat Reilly mainly is a composer, producer (most probably) and a guitarist. Between Two Worlds is a powerful piece of work, a badass progressive/instrumental composition where he is showing great potential with his guitar playing skills, composing and understanding of music.
When I look at Pat Reilly’s general music style, I can say that he has a delicious mix of many different guitarists such as; Andy James, Steve Vai, John Petrucci, Joe Satriani, Marco Sfogli and so on. He is making a difference with his melodic side mostly, along with his traditional sentences in this composition. Guitar music always had its place in music industry, yet I believe it started to gain popularity especially with some progressive rock acts like Dream Theater, along with other phenomenal guitar players such as Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, Michael Angelo Batio, Al Di Meola, and Paul Gilbert. However, John Petrucci surely is one of the revolutionary names who have had a huge influence on many guitarists with his technique, progressive sentences, innovative thinking, guitar playing skills and music style from all around the world. Pat Reilly is one of those who has taken all these different influences, blended, digested, and now offering the world his own versions of it. Between Two Worlds is a powerful metal track with incredibly high energy and badass atmosphere. When you listen to Pat’s solo parts carefully, you can hear some Steve Vai, Andy James and Joe Satriani influences. Just like I have mentioned above, he has a little bit of something yet nothing too much, which is admirable. I am a guitarist myself and I can tell you that he is an advanced guitar player as well as a great composer. Hands down. This song for instance is one of those that I’d call; “intelligent songwriting”. Not everybody can write music and play these partitions like he does.
Technically, Between Two Worlds has top-class standards in every way. Everything sounds clean, clear, progressive, very well engineered, polished, mixed and most importantly, in great harmony. Yes, there might be (not %100 sure) some additional software drumming, effects and so on. But I don’t mind it as long as the music gives me the feeling.
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am well impressed by Pat Reilly. He immediately earned our respect and admiration with his musicality, skills, attitude and hard work. He has the right spirit, talent and the potential to become a touring guitarist, in my humble opinion. All he has to do is to continue working hard and maintaining his standards. That’s all!
