Oh la la, here they are again with more AOR anthems and stadium rockers. Brittania´s own Vega featuring frontman Nick Workman and the Martin brothers.
"Who we are" is Vega´s 4th studio album and a wetdream for AOR fans, the Martin brothers Tom and James are the main songwriters in Vega, and at the moment also the best songwriters on the label of Frontiers Records.
Tom and James Martin might not sell the same amount of records as the big ones of the 80´s like Desmond Child, Diane Warren and Russ Ballard. But they have definitely proven to release the same top quality of AOR smashes.
"Stereo messiah" from 2014 was a superb AOR album in a modern package and the new album continues where the previous one left off. "Who we are" is the twinbrother.
Highlights : Every little monster, White flag, Generation now, If not you
