It's A Beautiful Life

It's A Beautiful Life
(AOR Heaven - 2012)

It's A Beautiful Life is Mark Spiro's 7th solo album, but many of his songs are well-known, coz the American musician and composer wrote songs for bands like Cheap Trick, Giant, REO Speedwagon, Heart, Kansas, Bad English and John Waite - to name just a few. So, even if you don't know any of his solo albums, you'll get the picture and know what to expect. Mark Spiro is presenting an album full of melodic rock songs - some with a singer songwriter edge -, even if he wrote songs for artists of other genres and movies, too. I Know Who I Love is a poppy singer-songwriter tune, something you might hear on the radio and imagine a sunny summer day.... Mr. Spiro did this on his own, so you can imagine him in a house at the beach contemplating life and what it holds for us - good and bad. The songs have an airy feel and they sound very organic, like he was just let the inspiration flow.

Sure, some might say this is too polished, too simple... And it's kind of easy listening stuff, but once in awhile everybody needs just that, some easy listening. So, if you like some light entertainment, check out It's A Beautiful Life!
