There is a new wave of AOR artists coming from Sweden such as Eclipse, Houston, Work of Art, H.E.A.T and now you can add Wigelius to that list. A young band built around singer Anders Wigelius who appeared on the Swedish TV show True talent last year where he sang Journey´s "Don´t stop believin". The debut album "Reinventions" is a solid Scandi AOR affair that will please fans of AOR without doubt, who can resist a pink and fluffy song like "Talking about love" and the Toto-esque "Too young to fall in love". The acoustic ballad "Love can be that much" reminds a bit of Mr.Big´s hit "To be with you", the music is very traditional and there are no surpises along the way so the cliche´s are lined up like an army parade but just like I said. It´s good.
