Review: Bigz- “The Bigz Bang Theory”

28 Nov

*This review is done purely from a music lover’s point of view. The comments are that of the contributor and do not reflect the entire Flores and Division staff.

From the moment Bigz shared his lead single “Forever” online, it was clear his intention for “The Bigz Bang Theory” was to continue his musical evolution as evident with a very loud, aggressive intrumental matched with an equally fierce flow.

The cover art for this project is very different from the previous three releases (‘Flight of the Navigator”, “Starman” and “Quantum Leap”). While the previous releases’  art was in the same categorial neighborhood as the title and told the story of what to expect (space travel, intergalactic music, spacey stylings), “TBBT’s” art does not define this project so one could not simply determine the musical contents based on the image.

The answer to why this art was chosen is solved as you experience the musical journey. The term “journey” is one of the most accurate terms in this review as “TBBT” goes through so many different musical themes and elements, the intricacies of the art matches the music.
