AOR - The Secrets Of L.A.

AOR’s last albums marked a goodbye from the classic Westcoast sound of the early releases. On the new record “The Secrets Of L.A.” this process hits its peak as mastermind Frederic Slama has created a pure AOR and Melodic Rock album. And with the help of guest musicians like Tommy Denander, Fergie Frederiksen (ex-TOTO), Jeff Scott Soto (ex-TALISMAN), Jim Jidhed (ALIEN), Robin Beck, Tamara Champlin and Bob Harris (AXE) nothing could go wrong. If you enjoy acts like STREET TALK, RADIOACTIVE or LIONVILLE, then guitar- and keyboard-driven songs like “Secrets In The Shadows” (feat. Jim Jidhed), “Back To San Francisco” (feat. Bill Champlin) or “The Name Of The Game” (feat. Robin Beck) are tailor-made for you. The two most outstanding songs on the record are “Web Of Lies” and “Hollow Triumph” on which Göran Edman (STREET TALK) and Mikael Erlandsson (LAST AUTUMN’s DREAM) sing some excellent lead vocals each. To be fair, I have to mention that half of the songs on “The Secrets Of L.A.” were already used for Frederic Slama’s second project CHASING VIOLETS. Thanks to the different lead singers and slightly changed arrangements some of them sound very different compared with the originals. Anyone who enjoys AOR and Melodic Rock in the style of the aforementioned acts should appreciate “The Secrets Of L.A.” as well.
