"Life Today" receives 5 star rating on Muzik Reviews
There's no denying that an album is successful when almost every song makes you literally dance ridiculously around your house. Life Today, the newest release by Radio Drive, made me do just that, while clearly reaching me with its message to enjoy life.
“Let's Get Started” in particular made me dance for its entirety, and the lyrics touched me, too: “let's get started/time to rock and shake and move/time to get into the groove”. But it's not the only song on Life Today with that perspective; the album has a pretty clear message that life should be enjoyed as a positive thing. On the title track the man behind the music and words, Kevin Gullickson, sings, “There has to be a better way/I will enjoy life today/nothing will take that away”.
The music is just as positive as the lyrics, but none of it comes across as sugary pop. It's intricate guitar work and upbeat drums that make the songs snap and sing all on their own. Gullickson is a talented writer and composer, and it's obvious in each and every song.
Life Today is an album that will make you appreciate your day, no matter how bad it's going, without making you want to roll your eyes or feel like you need to hug a rainbow. It's exactly what I hope Gullickson intended.
Key Tracks: Life Today, Let's Get Started, Rising High, When Hearts Grow Cold
