O.A.R.’s Wind-up Records debut album, King, marks a new beginning for the band, while also paying homage to their past. It is the seventh studio effort in a career that began with their high school recording, The Wanderer. Bringing back the title character from their first album, O.A.R. takes the listener on a journey to discover that what the Wanderer, and the band members themselves, had been searching for all along, was there from the beginning. As the closing song on the new disc states, a return “Back to One.”King is O.A.R.’s follow-up to their 2008 studio album All Sides, which debuted at #13 on the Billboard Top 200 and #3 on the Digital Album chart.
This two-in-one set features a pair of LPs by REO Speedwagon, R.E.O. Speedwagon and R.E.O./T.W.O., originally issued in 1971 and 1972. These 16 tracks include such original compositions as "Anti-Establishment Man," "Five Men Were Killed Today," "Being Kind (Can Hurt Someone Sometimes)," and the Chuck Berry classic "Little Queenie."
Pretty much exactly what it says it is – a combination of the two releases, the Bloodied But Unbowed compilation and the War On 45 EP, on one compact disc. The remastering job is fine, the cover art is all reproduced, and there are even complete lyrics, with one or two exceptions. Anyone wanting to give these guys a listen should start right here.
The highly anticipated debut studio album from Electronica act A R I Z O N A "GALLERY" will finally be released on May 19th, 2017 by Atlantic Records & Warner Music Group. The album has already spawned numerous commercially succesful singles, such as "Oceans Away", "Crossed My Mind" and others.
