As diverse as his homeland of Australia, physician-composer Joe Romeo—yes, we said, “physician”—releases the 14-track No Other Place (buy), completing a gamut of musical styles, including everything from reflective worship to synth-pop soundtracks. Claiming an affinity for composition since the age of fourteen, Romeo’s creative styles actually showcase his versatility in a positive light versus causing a distraction. Though the album juts from anthemic praise to rhythmic dance floor jams in a matter of succeeding tracks, the seasoned and professional approach to Romeo’s production and execution make for a seamless and enjoyable listening experience. This album leaves us scratching our heads as to which of his two titles should appear first: composer, or physician? (For anyone reading this awaiting an appointment in his lobby, don’t worry, he hasn’t quit his “day job” yet!)
