The strange thing about music is that there is so much to choose from, and the numerous artists/musicians/bands out there seem to increase from one day to the next. It’s good to treat yourself every so often and give your ears a different sound that they have not grown accustomed to hearing. The concern when choosing what to stray with is to decide whether to stay with what is known and proven or to get risky and shoot for the new artist. With Bill Lubera, it’s the best of both worlds. Even though Lubera is enthralling music lovers with his debut release entitled Global Warning, he has been around for quite some time — laying low in the background and waiting for just the right time to make his move.

Not only is Bill Lubera ardent and passionate in his playing, one can’t help but notice his composing skills and abilities from the musicianship perspective. His playing is brilliant and his technique is just as flawless. The sounds he produces with his guitar makes you wonder where he’s been hiding all these years. If you are a fan of the Chicago-area music scene, then you might have had heard of him from his affiliation with the bands Jinx and RipChord. While listening to Lubera’s debut album, you’ll notice some very strong George Bellas subtleties from beginning to end. Lubera, who’s been playing since the ripe ‘ole age of five, has been tutored by none other than George Bellas himself for many of those years.

This is an Instrumental album for the most part, but has some Prog/Rock overtones with a hint of Classical thrown in there for good measure. If that’s your cup of tea, then this debut album will do the trick for you, and if you love strong guitar albums, then you’ll hit the jackpot. You’ll hear numerous leads congruent in nature to the modal changes, and intricate rhythms that are paralleled and fused in with an almost exponential number of time signature changes.

Global Warning was composed solely by Bill Lubera. It was produced, mixed, and mastered by George Bellas and recorded at Bellas Music Studio. Believe it or not, all of the sounds created and heard on this debut album are made possible by only two musicians — Lubera and Bellas. That is quite an accomplishment in itself.

Musically speaking, there are no bad songs anywhere from start to finish. This is one of those rare treats where the listener can put this CD in his player and hit start — no disappointments anywhere along the way or the need to skip or fast-forward through any of the tracks. This is a very powerful debut release by Bill Lubera that any music fan would be fortunate to own.
