Do you like Martin Stenmarck´s album?,well then,here´s another Swedish singer in the same modern rock/pop vein as Martin named Anders Johansson who won the Fame Factory contest here in Sweden.
But Martin Stenmarck is better though.......
Anders J. and another producer/composer named Chriz makes the songwriting team Ace-music which are developing various material to artists around the world.
The Prize of the Fame Factory contest was to make a record.
Half of If it´s all I ever do is really good but the other half reminds me too much of some boybands out there,sooooo sugarsweet and filled with cliche´s.
I can do without songs like "Save you","Last flight out" and "She said" which are sounding like Westlife
or Point Break,and why did he do a cover of Bryan Adams classic hit "Heaven"???!!!!,that is what I call
so unnecessary.....there are a few OK tunes with some catchy vibes like "Lost and found","Thousand miles" and "Where were you",they are quite uptempo so that s nice.
But the songs that saves the album and makes the final rating A GOOD ONE!! are the rocking "It´s over"
, "Sooner or later" plus the opening track "Without you",how some guitars can do so much for
the sound......this is what I want to hear more of ,on the next album.
Call it nu-breed AOR or whatever,I call it modern rock!
However,the whole album ends on the okay level on the rating scale.
