“No Words Needed” is the second solo album from the Danish guitar player Michael Sobygge and this album is much punchier and much more heavy sounding than his first solo album “Melodic meltdown”. But unfortunately this album doesn’t seem to captivate me like his first album did, and once again the production could have been better in my humble opinion.
on “No Words Needed” Michael Sobygge is handling all the guitar
work, and he is also responsible for bass guitar and piano. Impressive.
There is ups and downs during the 11 tracks there is to be found on this album and the best track is “The Witch & the Warlock” in my opinion and with a better production this track could easily be a killer-track! - Let’s not forget track 9, “I don’t Know Why?” – It’s a very beautiful quiet piece of music, and honestly… this little piece of music almost made me cry the first time I heard it… and I can only say…- I don’t know why? -I really like this track.
rest of the tracks are okay, but nothing spectacular. -
I will now check out his third solo album, called, “Dr. Jekyll &

Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
This is the third solo album from Danish guitar hero Michael Sobygge and here on “Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde” we have Martin Bech on drums, Lasse W. Wehner on bass, Lars Binderup, vocals on 4 of the 15 tracks, and of course on guitars, Michael Sobygge.
Just like Sobygge’s first two albums there are ups and downs. We get 11 instrumental tracks and 4 with Lars Binderup on vocals and I must admit that I don’t like the way Lars Binderup is singing. I wish he would sing his heart out instead of holding back… sounds pretty awful to me, sorry!
best tracks in my opinion are “Adagio Op.1 No.8”, a very
beautiful little piece of classical music Sobygge
wrote back in 1994. Track
11 “Blue Notes”, very memorable and very funky. And track
13 “On A Green Day”. -This
title was given to Sobygge by a little girl called Nanna. To
me, a beautiful warm summer day comes
to mind when I listen to this track.
third solo album from Sobygge comes with a better production
than his 2 first albums, and do
