Spin Gallery
Style: AOR / Hard Rock
Release date: December 4th 2009

The debut for Spin Gallery "Standing Tall" came out in 2004, the music of Spin Gallery was seen as a mix of Mr. Mister, Toto and Foreigner, and there are certainly similarities. Once again, Kristoffer Lagerström & Tommy Denander have shown how to make music! 2 great songs with catchy choruses and beautiful guitars. Kristoffer Lagerstrom’s voice is amazing and the duets that he's doing with Dan Reed “You Do The Things You Do” and Robin Beck “Just A Momentary Why” is something everyone needs to hear!

But I’m sorry to say they are the only highlights on this rather bleak album, the rest is just filler and goes nowhere. Music wise “Embrace” is POP/AOR and to me there is too much of this mind numbing shit doing the rounds these days. It seems to me that anybody with a home studio & money to pay Tommy Denander to play on their album will get a deal through Frontiers these days.
