Anthony Lazaro’s The Guest List is an adventure through the trying times of isolation due to the worldwide pandemic. He created this album as a narrative to stay unified amidst separation. “I wanted to find an antidote to the isolation of this year,” explains Lazaro. “In a moment where barriers are at their highest, this is a challenge to every kind of border.” The variety of different musical influences makes each track diverse and compelling. The album opens with two soothing tracks, “Hello” and “The Silent Patient.” Previously released at the beginning of autumn, “The Silent Patient” explores a desire and longing for love and hope.
The song is about a complicated relationship that illustrates love while comparing different seasons. The third track, “The World After You,” is laced with joyful acoustics and delightful melodies, creating a peaceful background for the lyrics. Since the album travels through a catalog of genres, more pop-influenced songs can be found in tracks like “The City Lights” and “Basement Love.” The title track “The Guest List” shows the agony of missing that special someone, while exploring the relationship between jazz and electronic pop.
