Mike Zogaria - Buffalo, NY
Mike Zogaria - Almost Worth The Wait CD review
Almost Worth The Wait kicks off with Someone To Sing To. This song is a upbeat and catchy rock tune with a strong vocal line. This song beat out 30 other songs to win a free video shoot through the website Promoting Buffalo. The song has a 90's sound and is my favorite on the CD.
Check out the very cool video https://youtu.be/mJy_LZyLwkE
Gray is up next and features Mike on harmonica and Mick Hayes on slide lead guitar. The song has a classic rock feel. I really liked the cool harmonica outro.

Make It Up To You is a smart, mid-tempo rocker that features Mike Vealey on drums and keyboards. Mike keeps the groove flowing with some sweet acoustic guitar playing.

Pistol starts off with some melodic harmonica playing by Mike. Pistol is a acoustic rock love song with plenty of sexual innuendo thrown in to keep the lyrics interesting.

Rock Star Parking is a all out hard rocker that features a ripping guitar solo and a sweet rock guitar outro.

My Misery is a ballad that highlights Mike on a great acoustic guitar intro. Heartfelt lyrics carry the song through a couple of cool rocking parts that keep the energy flowing.

Come Home is a uplifting and well composed acoustic rock song.

Something More continues in the same vein as My Misery as Mike carries the song through with some nice acoustic guitar playing combined with soulful lyrics.

When Goodnight Means Goodbye is a uptempo rocker that packs a punch.

Goodnight has a different mix than the rest of the songs and another acoustic rock song that includes a bongo track to keep the beat. Mike and his brother Mark wrote this song together.

The bonus track Time also has a different sound than the rest of the CD. Time also features Mike's brother Mark on bass and lead guitar and Mike Argento on drums, piano and he also engineered the song.
