3 X 8 out of 10 plus 4 out of 5!!!
It´s happened yet again - another great review of our new album! This time it´s This time it´s Pernilla Swartz Olsson at Rocknytt.net that writes about our brand new album.Here´s some of the things she, Daniel Reichberg at Sweden Rock Magazine and the other reviewers have to say about "Seven Wonders And Four Little Miracles":
"It´s rocky, bluesy and progressive all at the same time. Singer Klas Ling has a very good voice. He varies his voice from gritty to soft. Guitarist Pelle Andersson spices things up with one great guitarsolo after great guitarsolo and Bo Karlsson fills in with nice keyboard-playing. The rythm section consisting of Joakim Jansson on drums and Patrik Adiels on bass lays down a firm rythm at all times."
"The lyrics on the record are both thought-provoking and interesting but I also appreciate the many instrumental parts on the album. The tracks that I appreciate most on the album include Playing Your Game, In Too Deep, Afraid, and the instrumentals Youth and Falling."
"To conclude, Seven Wonders and Four Little Miracles is an impressive and well-worked album that I highly recommend! 4 out of 5! Best track: Falling." Pernilla Swartz Olsson, rocknytt.net
"Hard Rock in the verses, AOR in the choruses, progressive rock in the instrumental sections, a somewhat simplistic way in trying to describe Wonderland. The best example of this is perhaps the epic "ballad turns into hard rock turns into progressive rock"-song, In Too Deep with it´s wonderful guitar- and synthsolos. 8 out of 10!" Daniel Reichberg, Sweden Rock Magazine, March 2017
"My favourites has always been "Hold My Soul" and "Can´t Get Too Much" but with the new recording several of the other songs get an extra boost, especially "In Too Deep" and "Devil And The Deep Blue Sea". With "Abandoned Ship" we, in fact, get the best song of the album. "The Rush Of Possibilities" is the toughest song of all, progressive yet very melodic with great solos. 8 out of 10." Mattias Westman, planetaor.com
"If you have not encountered Wonderland and their music before, you can no doubt look forward to an exuberant musical experience with many positive vibes that absolutely leads to physical wellbeing and you will find yourself humming the choruses.
The musics great variation should be able to appeal to a broad audience, and that's something I really begrudge both Wonderland and all "out there" who have not had the opportunity to hear the band before - do it! Let the music to reach as many as possible. Highly recomended! 8 out of 10." Niklas Kindahl, artrock.se, March 2017

Our sound engineer, Stefan Karlsson works in many studios in and around Gothenburg, Sweden. Here you see him at work on our mixes at Myhrene Studios in Ucklum, Sweden.
Wonderland want to thank everyone involved at Musikens Hus, Gothenburg. GARF, ACT, Galahad, PAN and, most importantly, the audience!
- We were nervous. Patrik, our new bass-player, had been rehearsing lika crazy in order to get everything into place and both he and the rest of us were anxious to play good, says guitarist Pelle. We want to do our music justice as well as out of respect for the audience. To write, rehearse, record and play our music is such an integral part of our lives so it´s really important for us to try and play as well as we possibly can. The audience at Musikens Hus really helped us with their warm appreciation, he continues.
There are plans for both the continued recording as well as for more live dates in the not so distant future. Watch this space for further details!
In the meantime, here are some links to photos from Musikens Hus - enjoy!
