Tommy Mora - Let It Shine, review

If you're looking for some real feel good music, look no further. Tommy Mora is your man!
Tommy's second album Let It Shine was released in the summer of last year and it's got that good old rock and roll feel, a perfect CD for those long road trips.

Just imagine it: window rolled down, sunglasses on, one hand on the wheel, the company of friends, and Tommy Mora on the radio. That's the vibe I'm getting from this album. Seriously, hit play as you read this and you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. I'll be honest, I'm not a huge fan of this not so subtle music video, but if you just scroll down and enjoy the song you'll hear that it's top notch!

And the same can be said for the rest of the album. Track number three is the down to earth 'Simple Man' that offers more of that enthusiastic sound. Track number ten is my personal favourite, 
'Radioactive' is proper rocked up, it's super baddass, super singalongable, and super catching.

Track number two is incredibly produced and features more of the uplifting jazz and stylistic electric organ that we loved from 'Let it Shine', the title track. I can also happily announce that the music video is much cooler, lot's of impressive dancing going on. In fact, here... take a look: 

I honestly find it hard to understand how an album can be so happy and energetic throughout an entire 14 tracks. I mean, 14 tracks... that's pretty lengthy, and it holds up! There are some more easy listening tunes in there, giving it a bit of dynamic, but it's an all round optimistic record. And yeah, that can get a bit samey, but you could say that about anything that has its own defined style. It plays safe. It sticks to the codes and conventions of its genre and it does it very well. 

Listening to the album first time I can hear a bit of a theme developing... I think Tommy here finds his inspiration from the ladies!

A great record, incredibly uplifting, and it's certainly put a smile on my face.

If you're liking the look of this guy, his album is available on iTunes for just under $10 and he's also got a load of stuff uploaded to YouTube if you'd prefer to try before you buy.  

Four stars from us!
