Main men behind this Swedish studio project are: Marcus Jidell (Royal Hunt), who has produced the album and plays guitars, and piano, Uno Sjöström, who has co-produced and plays guitars and Johan Langquist (Ex-Candlemass), who does the male lead vocals on "Expressions", their debut album.
And they have called in help from around the world to make this an exciting rock album; Robin Beck is doing the lead vocals on four tracks as well as backing vocals together with her husband James Christian (House of Lords), Pandora ('World famous' in Sweden) is doing the vocals on one song, Victoria Theodore (Stevie Wonders' band) is playing piano on two songs, Tomas Broman plays drums on nine songs and the whole thing has been co-produced and engineered by Pontus Nordgren (HammerFall), who also contributes with a guitar solo on one song. And they have managed to get everyone involved sound like a natural piece of the puzzle, and the combination of so many different vocalists and styles work really well.
"Expressions" turns out to be a very solid debut album; twelve well produced rock songs with a hard edge, and an album that should appeal to fans of Europe, Whitesnake and Robin Beck. The album is strong and diverse enough to receive my stamp of approval.
