Planet AOR


Notes

AOR as a genre is melodic rock made with a synthesizer and includes extremely catchy choruses and fairly straightforward song structures. It is used to describe the music of rock bands that don't sound as heavy as hard rock bands and pay more attention to melody. A trademark of the genre is a "wall to wall" harmony use of vocals. AOR to fans stands for Adult Oriented Rock although many simply refer to it as Melodic Rock or the abbreviation AOR. It has been used in the past in America as a radio format (Album Oriented Rock) for which it has very little relationship with and is often confused with. When someone uses the term "AOR", think bands like Styx, Boston, Journey.... The term Arena rock has also been used to describe many of these bands.
