As of lately, many Scandinavian AOR releases, without naming any names, has left underwhelmed. Not bad – they are all very well produced, clean-cut with big sound-scapes and as for the musicians, well, it’s really hard to find bad ones within the genres of AOR and Melodic Rock. I can’t even say that I don’t like the songs because, for the most part, I do. It’s just that so many of them sound the same, sometimes to the point where it’s hard to tell them apart. But that’s not me saying I don’t like or have grown tired of AOR per se, no I still love all the classics but for the last few years, very few new AOR releases has moved me enough – and therefore the high scores has been absent as well.
