It was in 2002 that Frédéric took AOR to a new dimension with the critically acclaimed third album « L.A Reflection », which was considered to be the best Westcoast CD of the year by many journalists and fans alike. It featured all the big names in the music industry including Steve Lukather, Mike Porcaro, Jeff Porcaro, David Paich (all Toto members) and a line up of stars like Tommy Denander, Göran Edman, Michael Landau, Vinnie Colaiuta, Michael Ruff, Bruce Gaitsch, Rick Riso and lots of other top L.A. artists.

AOR's 10th album "The Colors Of L.A" is a pure Melodic Rock gem featuring some of the greatest musicians in the Westcoast / AOR world! AOR’s 10th Release, is the perfect mix between melodic rock & westcoast music. The sound is heavier this time in the vein of Toto, Foreigner or Survivor. Great Melodies, Fabulous solos and brand new recorded versions of favorites like « Teach Me How To Love You Again » or « You’re My Obsession ». « The Colors Of L.A » contains all the elements of a classic. Pure AOR bliss!
Without a doubt the strongest and rockiest release from mastermind Frederic Slama in classic AOR style next to Steet Talk, Radioactive and Lionville feat. an incredible lien-up. Being the twelfth release under the “AOR” moniker, The Secrets Of LA is a stepping stone between classic AOR sound many of the guest singers and musicians are associated with and the modern-day production and approach to the genre. And for the listeners, it remains a real trademark of quality in this kind of music; there are no fillers to this album, each and every track being worth attention. Highly recommended.
