Da Vinci - 2017 Ambition Rocks

The new album by Norwegian melodic rockers Da Vinci, is called 'Ambition Rocks', and will be released on 25 August by AOR Heaven. Now, I want to clear up some misconceptions about this album and release, in case people start commenting without any knowledge.

Firstly, the two main guys here are Gunnar Westlie - guitar and Dag Selboskar - keys. There is no involvement from previous singer Lars Aass, bassist Bjorn Boge (who went onto Street Legal) nor drummer Jarle Maloy.

Secondly, this latest incarnation of Da Vinci stems from the 2004 band Eidsivating (Westlie and Selboskar), and has developed onward from there.

Thirdly, the demos which Da Vinci recorded into the 90's (songs such as 'Heard It On The Radio' and 'Won't Be The One' ) are not represented here either.

Musically, it's not quite the vintage Da Vinci material from the 1986-1989 period, but it is very AOR-oriented with lots of guitar and keyboard interlacing.


Da Vinci Lineup (2017):
Gunnar Westlie - guitar
Dag Selboskar - keyboards
Erling Ellingsen - vocals
Roy Funner - bass
Bjørn Olav Lauvdal - drums

Track Listing:
01 The Return (Intro)
02 Vicious Circle
03 Curious Sensation
04 I've Come All This Way
05 See You
06 Rocket Of Fame
07 Angel
08 Storm On The Horizon
09 Little Lonely
10 Soul Survivor
11 Painted Lady
12 You're Mine
13 Touch Of Humanity

New album cover looks like something from Hungarian prog/pomp band Karthago.
