Lilith is the debut album of Italian band It’sAlie. The band features one of the most ambitious rock singers of today Giorgia Colleluori, plus the most respected rockers of the Italian music scene – that sounds like a band with lots of skill. I took that from the press material, the question is what was the criteria used to establish these facts, one of the most ambitious isn’t as definitive but even a very ambitious person might be far from the most ambitious - so how did they rate that? The most respected about the other three in the band, that means they are the most respected musicians of all musicians in Italy, how did they establish that? Did they ask Italian musicians or experts? The cover maker isn’t the best, that can be easily judged by anyone as it looks really boring. But what about the music?

It is female fronted heavy rock music with straight, they have good energy and great vocals. The production by Mat Sinner is fine, he also does a guest spot singing a duet in one of the songs. Jorn Viggo Lofstad from Pagan’s Mind and Alex Beyrodt from Primal Fear also guest on this album, both playing the guitar. The album is relatively varied but the album itself doesn’t really offer anything we haven’t heard before, the vocals are great, but it isn’t really a very exciting album from the creative standpoint.

Lilith is a fairly good album overall, the songs work, and they are pretty easy to like. Some will probably find it a very agreeable album, there isn’t much to complain about. Still, it isn’t a particularly exciting album, not just from creative standpoint but also from the fact that I don’t find any outstand hit songs here or anything that pops out and grabs my attention, had it not been for the great voice I would have been listening to a really dull album. It is the voice that carries this album, but that can only do so much and to make anything great you need a lot more than what is being offered by this album.

It’sAlie has one of the finest female rock vocalists I have heard, and that might be reason enough to check out this album for those who are into the female fronted variety of the heavier music. Other than that, it is decent craftsmanship but as an album it is missing that little extra that makes a good album great.
