AOR Heaven / Point Music
Produced by: Sahara
Released: OUT / Website
Closest Relative: Tim Feehan, Street Talk
GENRE: AOR / Westcoast
Sahara are yet another group of classy Swedish musicians that have managed to create a slice of Westcoast mixed with straight AOR/pop rock.|
This is a smart album, filled with intelligent songs and memorable pure AOR melodies, mixed with the ever smooth harmonies and sounds of Westcoast music at it's best.
These guys are smooth and tey are soft, but fans of the genre will find a lot to like about this collection of songs.
The production is sharp and will mixed, with all instruments given equal room to breathe.
The tempo of the album varies from ultra smooth Richard Marx style pop ballads to a more fired up AOR sound on tracks like The Fire. (No pun intended!)
I can't help but think of other great quality European Westcoast acts like Street Talk and Talk Of The Town when I listen to these guys.
Their sound is definitely on the European side of style, with an even mix of piano, keyboards, electric and acoustic guitars.
