Sal Solo - We Cry Justice! - Catholic CD Review

0

Sal Solo’s newest release is a brave and hugely successful experiment. It is a concept album focusing on social justice issues from a Catholic perspective. Appropriately, Sal Solo uses the genre of world music with contemporary rhythms and rap thrown in. Together with arrangements and instruments indigenous to roots music from Australia, Africa and other exotic locations, the lyrics tell of Catholic social teaching, from our treatment of the poor in the brilliant “50 cents a day” to the pro-life message of the Church. One can’t hear these songs without feeling convicted and being inspired to do more for the less fortunate of our world. A highlight is a brilliant reworking of “Money” by Pink Floyd. I predict that this CD, which was entirely recorded direct to a Mac laptop, will be one of the best albums of the year. Get this CD from www.SalSolo.com.
