Former ART OF ILLUSION protagonists Anders Rydholm (g/keys/b, ex-GRAND ILLUSION) und Lars Säfsund (v, WORK OF ART) with a fantastic piece of work. Twelve tracks full of magic combining the best elements of the rich CHICAGO and TOTO universe. Numerous guests, real horns, amazing guitars, a stellar vocal performance and most of all, more melody and groove than legally allowed by the police. A pristine and powerful production highlighting each and every single detail in a lovely and perfect way. A beatifully-crafted artwork completes the picture in an impressive way. "Don't Make Me Do It", "The Bet" or "Bucket List" are only three examples of Westcoast heaven. (MS)
