Chris Antblad might be a new name for the common man but for AOR die hards, you know his involvement in the brilliant Spin Gallery album "Standing tall" from 2004.
Chris was the main lead singer and co-writer along with Tommy Denander in Spin Gallery but then he wanted to focus on a solo career
instead and wasn´t a part of the 2nd Spin Gallery album "Embrace" from 2009.
After years of collaborating with other songwriters such as Randy Goodrum, Jay Graydon, Paul Carrack, Eric Martin, John Bettis and Joe Lynn Turner,
he was ready to record his first solo album "Century" which was completed in 2008 but things didn´t go as planned and the album was put on the shelf until now.
Chris Antblad´s biggest hero is Bryan Adams which becomes rather obvious when you hear this album, the pop/rock/AOR of "Century"
also bring thoughts to Stefan Andersson and Jamie Meyer and we´re talking quality here.
Chris is an amazing singer and songs like "When fools rush in" and "I stand corrected" are true AOR gems,
imagine Peter Cetera meets Mr Mister and you´ll get these two songs.
Another AOR anthem is the superb "Asleep in your arms".
Songs as "A fire burning" , "Home for me" , "Jealous eyes" are amazing AOR songs !!
I think I know my number one for this years top 10 albums !! This one will be very hard to top !!
This is what they say AOR by the numbers !!!
