FRANCK CARDUCCI isn’t a newcomer to music. But ‘Oddity’ (2011) is the debut album for this multi-instrumentalist on which he plays acoustic, electric and bass guitars, piano, synthesizers, tambourine as well as sings. Helping him out on flute is John Hackett (Steve’s brother)... Franck’s recording style brings out so many fine details and intricate moments within each song, which are well put together as individual units. There’s a lot to hear where different compositions include different instruments, to incorporate fairly good melodies.

This album starts off with track ‘Achilles’. It sets the pace for the rest of material (firmly rooted in a very familiar Genesis/Pink Floyd territory). Some unexpected signature changes create a sense of good proportion. Fans of old Pendragon should praise the gentle glide of ‘The Last Oddity’…

A very accessible CD that is hugely enjoyable to listen to and I look forward to hearing more from Franck Carducci.

It's taken from Strutter webzine.

"Released on a French label is the debut CD of the Amsterdam based talented French multi-instrumentalist FRANCK CARDUCCI. He is a singer/songwriter/guitarist/bassist who recorded with several other musicians his very first CD titled ‘Oddity’, which musically is pure 1970s Progrock influenced, very much going into the classic PETER GABRIEL era GENESIS direction, although some of the material is also reminding of the British Neo-Prog style (PENDRAGON). Somehow it also has a slightly more melodic typical 1970s American approach here and there, so we can hear Pomprock influences as well and then you must think about STARCASTLE and STYX, although overall this really is a pure Progrockalbum that also contains a few Acoustic/Folk spots (“The eyes of Age”). The CD contains 7 songs that are quite lengthy and basically each song is from start to finish a wet-dream for the dedicated Progfan. Early GENESIS meets PENDRAGON meets a tiny bit of mid 1970s STYX is basically what you get to hear on this CD. Vocally Franck has a voice that fits somewhere between ALDO NOVA, JOHN WETTON and GREG LAKE, so mostly in the lower range situated."

The coming months Franck Carducci and his band will concentrate on finishing the new studio album 'Torn Apart' with an intended release date somewhere in the fall of 2014. There'd be a number of guest musicians, including ex-Genesis guitar man Steve Hackett. :cool:

The forthcoming album titled 'The Answer' will feature several special guests: Derek Sherinian (ex-Dream-Theater, Black Country Communion), Jimmy Pallagrosi (Karnataka, Zio) and Fabrice Dutour (Dyslesia). As Franck said, his new offering should appeal to many melodic rock lovers.
