Despite running between musical styles the great Canadian AOR man Stan Meissner has probably recorded his best and most enjoyable album to date, under the guise of the band name Metropolis.
Joining Meissner is the wonderful vocalist Peter Fredette of Kim Mitchell fame.
This is primarily a Westcoast fan's wet dream, smoothly running between pure Westcoast sounds and a more mainstream AOR and occasionally into power pop/rock.
But above all the melodies are well intact and the frequent and memorable hooks mixed with Fredette's top notch vocals make this album a winner by most standards.
Keep in mind, this is one for Westcoast fans or pure AOR fans. If that's you this will not disappoint.
