Falcone Rising Review | Posted July 29, 2019
What You Need To Know
John Falcone is a successful and experienced surgeon who discovered that his passion for music can be combined with his recently found faith in Christ. Every song is associated with scripture that served as the main inspiration behind the songs. Though most of the tracks on this debut album are very centered on Christ, a few songs are romantic, towards his wife. He is an independent artist who worked with Creative Soul Records founder Eric Copeland to find a band to record this album with. 

What It Sounds Like
Slap some traditional Gospel music lyrics on 80's or 90's rock and roll and you got yourself Falcone Rising's style of rock. It has guitar solos and melodic hooks a plenty. "The Sixth Hour Ballad of St. Dismas" not only shares a similar name as Disciple's "Ballad of St. Augustine," but it also sounds similar. The softer songs on the album sound like Stryper's earlier ballads.

Spiritual Highlights
Spiritual highlights are all over the place, and that is good! The scriptural references are provided by Falcone on his website, so I attached them with the song names below. Some have some creative interpretations on them while remaining accurate. The lyrics are all encouraging and will be familiar with Believers. There are some contrasting lines between some struggles and sin issues that are brought to Biblical answers. 

Best Song
It is a close call between "The Sixth Hour Ballad of St. Dismas" and "I Never Knew You." Both stand out significantly in both lyrical style and musical prowess. "I Never Knew You" wins it in the end for me. I like the creative exploration of the end times via Matthew 7:13-23, in the eyes of the cast away. 

For Fans Of 
Disciple, (early) Kutless, DaysEye

Final Word
Falcone Rising could very possibly be a rising star in Christian-based rock. The music is impressive and some creative lyric writing is evident. Fewer love songs and more creative lyric writing might be a step of improvement for Falcone to find his way to larger audiences if that be his goal. Either way, there are some unique aspects to this album that you should check out, and you can be encouraged by the lyrics along the way.
