New Jersey’s finest singer-songwriter, Michal Towber returned in 2018 with yet another groundbreaking album of memorable compositions entitled No Resolution. Hard to believe it’s been 19 years since Michal’s big breakthrough on Columbia Records, back when she was a teenager. Raising a family and balancing a rock star career in more recent years ain’t easy, yet Michal rises to the occasion on a superbly packaged CD that tastefully blends rock, pop, singer-songwriter style sounds to great effect. Several semi-acoustic, piano-based, unplugged tracks near the end of the album changes the vibe of the 14 track album yet, for most of its 45 minute, with tracks 1-10 rock sound, No Resolution really hits home with Michal’s soaring vocals and manic presence and kinetic vibe. One new surprise here is that No Resolution marks the first collaboration with gifted guitarist / saxophonist and songwriter AR. Co-production by Kazim Zaidi is further enhanced by his crisp sounding drumming, guitars and bass guitar skills. With 14 memorable pop-rock tracks, No Resolution is an excellent follow up to Michal’s 2012 album One Immortal Day, and the album goes the distance to further her already impressive repertoire of recorded music.
