5.0 out of 5 stars Classy AOR!, 20 July 2011
By 
This review is from: Lionville (Audio CD)
I ordered this after reading the glowing review in Classic Rock's AOR magazine. It's classy, well produced and laden with hooks that really rope you in after a couple of listens. The list of contributors to this album reads like a 'who's who' of AOR and it really shows in the depth of the writing and the high level of musicianship. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars AOR masterpiece, 2 July 2011
This review is from: Lionville (Audio CD)
An italian dream team of musicians at Lars Säfsund's service. If you don't know this talented singer, just listen to the Work of art album and you'll thank me later.
For fans of Survivor, Journey and Foreigner.
Just the song "The chosen ones" makes the album worth buying!!!

I'm afraid I was right and no, I don't know them personally.
Here in Italy we're 60 millions, and counting....

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb debut from a familiar stable..., 13 Oct 2011

This review is from: Lionville (Audio CD)
By Tony Forder

Kevin T's wish to have them in a line-up including Work of Art and W.E.T. is a nice one, but it would be a busy night for the WoA contingent, given that the guitarist is part of W.E.T. and the vocalist is here with Lionville.

This is a terrific album. Not right up there with WoA for me, but then I think Lionville are on the 'Journey' side of AOR, whilst WoA are on the 'Toto' side. There are some wonderful tracks here, make no mistake. All the hooks and melodies you could possibly wish for, plus some great production. Oh, and the playing isn't too shabby either.

I'd certainly like to hear more of Lionville. Not at the expense of WoA, but in addition to. And by the way, a compilation of this and 'In Progress' is a thing of beauty.

4.0 out of 5 stars Melodic Rules, 10 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lionville (Audio CD)
Another Amazon recommendation and it's a classic. Well sung vocals and some great guitar playing, laden with catchy melodies and choruses.

I am now hoping these guys could maybe get over with W.O.A. and W.E.T. at some time, what a tour that would be. Although more tours are announced for this type of band, it seems down to Firefest to bring them over.

I will now be searching this and similar bands back catalogues for more gems.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surely the best AOR release of 2011....., 22 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lionville (Audio CD)
.....until Work of Art's second album emerges next month?

There are enough killer tracks here ('Here by my Side', 'With You', 'The Chosen Ones' and 'Power of my Dreams' spring immediately to mind, and there's more where they came from)to launch this album well into the New AOR stratosphere. Production values are high, as you might expect, and there's got to be something here for fans of all classic strains of AOR, with that added European edge which, for me, makes it quite fresh and current. The presence of Lars Safsund should tell you all you need to know about the quality of the vocals. If you love AOR and are wondering what lies beyond Toto, Journey, Boston and the other classic bands, you should invest in this collection and see just why AOR is in the ascendancy again.
