Album Review

Returning after six years without original material — a hiatus that was interrupted by two 2012 releases — one a live album, one a Christmas record, along with a 2010 reworking of old songs — Richard Marx is in a decidedly seductive frame of mind on Beautiful Goodbye. A romantic record through and through, Beautiful Goodbye is smoother than most of Marx's catalog, rolling along at a subdued pace and seemingly encased in silk. Savvy old pro that he is, Marx knows enough to vary the pace and the accents — at times this flirts with Latin rhythms, at times he incorporates just enough EDM to illustrate he knows it's 2014, but not enough to alienate any longtime fans — which is enough to keep Beautiful Goodbye far away from the monotonous. He's aiming for atmosphere, not hooks here and, consequently, the record might seem a little elliptical for those expecting a revival of "Right Here Waiting," but that mastery of mood is also the appeal of Beautiful Goodbye: this was designed for late-night romance, and forceful hooks would distract from the seduction.

Customer Reviews

An excellent album !

All the fans who have followed Richard Marx’ career will love this new album.
The king of ballads has once again produced a fabulous album of contemporary adult music. Thanks!

Love it!

I bought this album a week ago and I can't stop listening to it, I absolutely love it! Whatever We Started, Beautiful Goodbye, Getaway, Turn Off The Night, and Like The World Is Ending are my favourites but every song is great.
