Woяk Of Aяt - Iи Pяogяεss (2011)
I've been awaiting this sophomore effort with bated breath the last couple of years, and goddamn was it worth the wait! WoA are easily the best 80's AOR-inspired band to emerge on scene since that long-gone decade (they proved their legitimacy on 2008's debut), and its everything you could want in a melodic rock album: killer choruses, shitloads of shred guitar, keyboard lines that dazzle the ears, and best of all an immaculate production topped wonderfully with a blazing enthusiasm for life and love long lost.
2011 has been one hell of a year for a variety of genres, and AOR is no exception folks. Dig it!
