Will appeal to all lovers of well-polished, classic AOR.

Twenty-one years after the release of his debut solo album 'Look What I've Started', the talented Swedish musician and producer Peo Pettersson is back with his sophomore solo album 'Welcome To The Party'. This time Pettersson (Leviticus, Axia) has teamed up with fellow Swede Roger Ljunggren (T'Bell & Grand Illusion) in the song-writing department (Ljunggren also plays guitars on the album); they are joined on this album by American drummer Tony Morra.

Pettersson has been in the music business for many years and involved in over two hundred and fifty recordings (to date) of varying musical styles, however, what we have on 'Welcome...' is pure AOR/Melodic Rock, leaning towards the former, and exemplified by the catchy title track that kicks off the eleven song album. 'The Promise' continues in the same vain and reminds me personally of the excellent Metropolis (Stan Meissner and Peter Fredette). 'You've Got It Going On' has a slightly harder edge and some furious soloing courtesy of Ljunggren and, similar to the mid-paced 'It's All Coming Back to Me', has an Asia/ Intelligent Music Project vibe.

Pettersson also handles the production, mixing and mastering of the whole album and it is obvious that he knows what he is doing by the quality on offer.

Songs like 'Coming Out', 'Break Another Heart' and 'Sweet Dreams' are typical of the genre that fans of bands like Dalton, Find Me and Alien are going to adore. The keyboard-centric 'Eilene' precedes the pure AOR of 'Love A Woman'. 'The Apple Of Temptation' has a West Coast feel with some more intense shredding. This is another album that saves the best to last with the Melodic Rock gem that is 'Dangerous' and sounds like a long lost cult classic from the eighties; crunching guitars and a huge chorus with masses of harmony backing vocals.

'Welcome To The Party' will appeal to all lovers of well-polished, classic AOR.
