Album Review: Beautiful Pain by Keaton Simons
Keaton Simons has a unique sound and perspective on life. It’s something that comes through on this entire album.
1. Thrill Of It All
This is a great way to start out the record. It’s about hope and love. This song is catchy. It’s something you want to listen to and enjoy. It’s a happy song. Happy can be good too when it comes to music.
2. The Medicine
This song sounds like it could have come out in 1995. It has that rock or grunge type of feel. It reminds me of middle school. I really like it.
3. If I Hadn’t Forgotten
It’s about a guy that is kind of struggling with the loss of his girl. They went separate ways and he can’t really get over that fact. He’s looking back on what he did wrong and what he should have done different.
4. Beautiful Pain
This is the title track and the first single. For some reason I feel like I’ve heard this song somewhere before. It’s a really good song. I like it.
5. Black & White
This one is different. There are really unique sounds on this record. They all find a way to make sense together, but they are all so different too. It’s a really interesting record.
6. Hearts Don’t Break Themselves
The guy here is trying to talk to a girl about love and how it all works. He’s trying to help her get out of a bad situation.
7. Is There Any Other Way
There is a really big sound to this song. You feel like it’s this huge sweeping ballad. It’s a good song and like the others on this record it’s different.
8. Other Side
We all have a different side to us. Not everyone always realizes it, but we do our best to try to get them to know who we really are.
9. Gonna Shine Brighter
This is a great song. It’s fun and catchy. It’s something you can sing along with as you listen. Even the first time you play it you feel like you can sing along with the chorus.
10. You’re The Spark
This one has kind of a lounge feel. The songs on this album are all so diverse. It’s really great.
You can tell there is a lot of feeling and emotion behind this song.
12. Read My Mind
The slowest song on the entire record comes toward the end. It’s another interesting song that doesn’t really sound like any of the others on the album. It’s an interesting perspective on how people kind of dance around each other even though they’re both having the same feelings.
13. Notice Me
Everybody wants to be noticed in life. The person changes, but we all want to be noticed for the most part.
