Work of Art-In Progress (Frontiers Records)

This is WORK OF ART’s second album. Their debut was not just one of the top albums of 2008, it was one of the best albums of the past decade! The debut’s success put a lot of pressure in the band, pressure that they hadn’t dealt with before. I am glad that they were able Read the rest of this entry »
