Format: Audio CD
"Williams-Friestedt" is the AOR collaboration between lead singer Joseph Williams, the former voice of "Toto" and songwriter/guitarist Peter Friestedt. The musical direction of this debut is lies somewhere between melodic rock and west-coast AOR, being more subtle than melodic rock though thicker than west-coast.

For the biggest part, "Williams-Friestedt" features mid-to-slow tempos with the rhythm section kept as much in the background as possible never claiming the lead. For that matter as the band-name of the collaboration indirectly states, this album is a vocals-guitar affair as the two musicians evenly share the spotlight on "Williams Friestedt". You can expect extensive guitar melodies and harmonious soloing in Friestedt's trademark style with rhythm guitar parts kept to a minimum. Williams, on the other hand, puts on one of his best performances being more intense than expected which makes for an even more memorable songs. In fact, whatever musical attack is to be found on "Williams-Friestedt" is actually driven by the singer. One has to also address the subtle piano presence that grants the album a "Toto"-like vibe.

Songs like "One more night", "where to touch you" and "Say goodbye" could have easily served as "Toto" tracks featuring the trademark rhythms, melodies and choruses that one expects to hear from the American AOR band though omitting the progressive twist often found in the arrangements of "Toto". Overall "Williams Friestedt" is a substantial AOR album featuring largely what a fan would expect to hear from the two musicians.

Former Toto singer Joseph Williams and guitar star Peter Friestedt have combined to produce a classic melodic rock album full of great vocal melodies backed up by quality musicianship. The performances and production are great throughout the entire album and the songwriting and vocal arrangements are particularly impressive. Highlights include the killer melodies of "Say Goodbye", the amazing Toto vibe of "Where To Touch You" which has to be one of the greatest songs ever recorded, the infectious melody of "Swear Your Love", the beautiful ballad "Sometimes You Win", and the closing piano ballad "Letter To God". Peter Friestedt has really got the Lukather sound covered with both his rythm and lead parts and combined with the former voice of Toto you get that classic Toto sound. The only downside is that the album has only nine songs running just over 30 minutes so it's short but sweet. This is highly recommended to fans of Toto and Work Of Art and represents one of the best albums in a strong year for melodic rock.
