100 Great & Unknown AOR Albums

________________________________________________________________________________________

 

By no means a complete list, here's just some of my favorite more "unknown" albums within the AOR,pomp and melodic rock genre. I've mostly focused on 80's small label/indie AOR albums here although you will also find some more recent albums and some more obscure major label releases here.

Although mostly not what you would categorize as "essential classics", I think that these are all very good and consistent albums that deserves to be heard by any AOR fan.
