"... I would not see bad Ballardini in the role of composer for Italian artists, such is his taste for harmonic research."

RAW & WILD

 

"Roots is in effect a "Venus Isle" of Eric Johnson reinterpreted in Italy. I do not think there is nothing more to add, then must buy for every electric guitar lover "

ROCK METAL ESSENCE

 

"Roots" is, surely, a jewel of the highest level: acoustic guitars, electric, jazz, blues, funk, this album is really everything. What you can define a successful job "

ITALIA DI METALLO

 

"The style of Ballardini reminiscent of other great figures of six strings, like Andy Timmons, Eric Johnson and Michael Lee Firkins, he blends funky blues with shredding fusion. Technique and sweetness, in short: the perfect recipe to showcase technical qualities without boring the listener. If you add to this the pro guests, this work is a real treat ... "

METALLIZED

 

"... A big axeman Paolo Ballardini, who takes on his difficult mission to seek the right balance between a high level of technical raids and the needs of artistic composition. In many try this, only few succeed and Paolo is one of these ... so much study and a impeccable curriculum "
