WORK OF ART picture
Work Of Art was formed in 1992 when Herman and Robert met while they both attended SÖL school of music. They quickly took a liking in each others songwriting and soon started to record demos together. Herman brought along his friend Lars to play keyboard and sing backup. However, the task of finding a singer was harder than expected and band was temporarily laid on ice.

Meanwhile, being exposed to a lot different styles of music while studying, Herman and Robert soon ended up in a lot of different projects that musically had very little in common with WOA. Upon graduating from school in 1995 the band went their separate ways.

In 1998 Herman brought up the idea to start recording again, this time with Lars on vocals. Being a bit reluctant at first, Robert soon changed his mind when he heard the first results of Lars singing their songs.

WORK OF ART In Progress

Album · 2011 · Hard Rock
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Stephen
Robert Sall has established himself as the most prominent songwriter in AOR sector since the release of Work of Art's debut in 2009. Not only he magically succeed to extract his optimal capability of writing splendid music into their sophomore work, but Frontiers also managed to ask his help to write many songs for various projects they've been releasing this year.

The trio's history went long way back to 1992 when they attended the music school before people got the chance to listen to their outstanding works, so after heavily haunted by Toto in their debut, 'In Progress' moves in a more original path, although the trace of those legends still obvious in many of the songs. 'In Progress' also shows maturity and applied tempo diversity in this album, and they only put out 3 ballads, which is unusual for AOR that mostly introduced more slowtempo tunes.

'The Rain' is an instant fave when it breaks out with shrilling melodies and fast-paced rhythm. 'Nature of The Game' slows down a bit and this is a debut-flavored track. 'Once Again' is an AOR perfection and 'Never Love Again' is a melodic rock masterpiece, definitely the best track here. 'Until You Believe' is definitely the better ballad compared to 'Fall Down' or 'One Step Away', but all of them are awesome tunes anyway.

'The Great Fall' is the first single and I wonder why they didn't put it as starter, but even though I like 'The Rain' better, but this one is marvelous too and influenced by Toto especially on the keys part. A very nice song to begin the second half and followed by another gem, 'Call On Me', with its powerful riffs and pretty chorus. 'Emelie' sounds very 80s and together with 'Castaway', both has impressive chorus but patchy verses, still a top notch tracks though.

With outstanding academical musicianship, they're like the Dream Theater of AOR and exactly knows what they're doing. Lars Safsund vocal is simply brilliant and he sways from low to high range with ease. Despite some minor flaws, I still think this record deserved a full five stars, a 100% record, and the album of the year for me.

Time Signature
Eye of the storm...

Genre: AOR

Catchy and clean AOR-friendly melodic hard rock, Work of Art treats the listener to one catchy and well-crafted tune after another. There is a certain pop sensibility to this release, and, unlike other modern AOR bands, Work of Art do not really venture into metal territory.

Also, despite the title, there is nothing progressive about this album. However, it is solid, catchy, well written, and well performed - excellent melodic rock for those who like Toto, Journey and Giant.

The musicianship is top notch and, while I do not really consider this a metal album, it certainly has an uptempo drive that inspires a massive amount of rock-out with whatever appendages you prefer out!
