very once in a while a true gem crosses my desk for review. Mark Clarke’s new album is one of these wonderful gems. Mark Clarke, for those of you who are wondering, played in Rainbow, Uriah Heep, and Billy Squier, among others. He is a truly talented musician who has definitely left his mark on the music world. His new album is just as amazing as his career has been to date.
The new album is entitled ‘Moving To The Moon’. Classified as AOR and Melodic Rock, I would like to quote John Lennon and use his term of “Straight Rock”. It is melodic in places and on certain songs, and sometimes you just need to slow down and enjoy the scenery. Other times on the album it is like a Ferrari running 200 MPH flat out. The album has that unique, special quality that we used to see more, or so it would seem, on albums. That quality is of the amazing singer and musician who is also a stellar songwriter. When you have those qualities, magic happens in the studio. It also doesn’t hurt that Ray DeTone produced the album. He has an ear for talent and knows amazing music. On certain songs, there is a very Beatles-esque/Billy Joel quality to Mark’s voice that makes the album even more fun. Together Mark and Ray have brought us a gem that is like opening presents on Christmas morning. I actually love every song on this album and cannot pick out a favorite.
