Review: Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18 is about love, life, and death. This album represents guitarist Giancola’s attempt to address these big picture topics in a personal way. These compositions are a sonic expression of what it means to be alive; what it’s like to experience love, life, death, happiness, and everything in between.
