Hidden Gem Review

Pete Sandberg is a very productive person and he has done a lot of records and projects, such as Silver Seraph with Rickard Andersson from Majestic. Pete also has a solo project called Opus Atlantica and he is going to release a new solo album after the summer.

The music on the album BACK IN BUSINESS can be described as soft melodic hard rock. Pete sings like a god. There are 13 songs on the album and each one is very good. A few songs that stand out a little bit more are the ballad “Stay a While,” and some faster songs like “When the Night Comes,” “Little Lover,” “Big Bad Rap” and “A December Monday.” Pete had also done a cover of the song “Closer to Heaven” by FM, and I think Pete does it better than the original group did.

The musicians on the album are:
Patrik Alm–bass
Fredrik Bergengren–guitar
Carl Colt–drums
Tommy Falk–keyboard, organ

Pete has written almost all lyrics and all the music as well. The production is great–you can hear everyone–and the album also has a great set of backing vocals that back-up Pete\’s main vocals. This is one of my favourite records even though it’s a bit softer hard rock with some blues influences, and it also has a lot of ballads on it.

On this album Pete shows off that he is a great singer and a really good musician and lyric writer. He deserves all the success he can possibly get.
