The LP's title is a pun on "adult-oriented rock."
The album marks ten years of Marco Passarani and Valerio Delphi's disco house group, which was initially started as an anonymous project. The album's title is a pun on the concept of "adult-oriented rock"—a term most often associated with '70s and '80s soft rock—and the music was "inspired by the faded buildings and images of discotheques on the Italian countryside [and] the romantic start and bittersweet endings of summer," according to the press release.
Almost all tracks on the album were made with cleared samples taken from Claudio Donato's Full Time and Goodymusic labels, barring "1:00AM," which is "100 percent sample-free."
A.O.D. follows a solo album from Passarani that came out at the beginning of this year. It also marks the return of Tiger & Woods to Running Back, after releasing their last LP, On The Green Again, through their own T&W Records label.
