Format: Audio CD
The second album released by Rod Thomas under the name Bright Light Bright Light is heavily influenced by his recent extended stay in New York. Where his debut (the superb `Make Me Believe in Hope') was the sound of someone struggling to find happiness, `Life Is Easy' appears to be the sound of someone who has finally found it.

It's very difficult to pick out any particular tracks as standout, as this is wall to wall with melodic, euphoric electronic pop. However, current single `I Believe' has an emphatic momentum that feels like an explosion of absolute joy. What could have been standard EDM is transformed by the sincerity with which Rod relays his feelings about a new relationship.

`There Are No Miracles' encapsulates the overall message of the album - that the key to enjoying life is not to keep looking for something better but instead to appreciate what you already have. In the same vein, `In Your Care' is a beautifully written song about growing up, being away from the family home but still keeping your family close to your heart.

`Too Much' is the smoothest dance track here - the lyrics just seem to flow out over a pulsating bass line.

The more reflective tracks are terrific - particularly `Lust For Life', which includes a feint, touching echo of previous album track `Grace'. `Happiness' surprises at first with its `funky drummer' loop and Ace Of Base vibes but once again the chorus is a winner - sanguine and full of Rod's trademark happy/sad lyrics.

The CD packaging and photography is excellent (New York skyline, full lyrics, lovely digital effects).

`Life Is Easy' showcases a unique talent at the height of his powers. It's everything you would want a pop album to be: catchy, strong bass lines, emotionally revealing and ultimately life-affirming.

I really like this album and if you (like me) enjoyed the brilliant pop Stock Aitken and Waterman produced in the 80's and 90's, you are in for a treat. The album grooves more than the debut album, there is a clear evolution in the music and it is a pleasure to hear that someone still knows how to produce pop gems. The reason why I don't give 5 stars is that I feel that some of the songs are lyrically too heavy to digest and the (in my opinion awful) artwork is really not fitting for the sound of the album and having bought the vinyl this ruins the experience a bit for me.
Stand out tracks for me are : Too much / Good Luck

The most under-rated artis out there. This album isn't as 80s-influenced as his first one in my opinion, but really good! If you like dreamy EDM, this is for you. Lust for Life might be the best track this year in my opinion

With the second album from Bright Light Bright Light, aka Rod Thomas and friends, this is a rare treat – pop perfection that makes me feel young again.

The album starts quietly and builds so that the pace seems to speed up as it progresses until you get to monster dance tunes such as ‘Too Much’ and ‘Happiness’ (with a fantastic sampled ‘funky drummer’ beat) at the end.

Hardly a weak track on the album, the big tunes hit you one after another such as ‘Good Luck’ and obvious single ‘I Believe’ which forces you to dance, believe me!

The melodies are just as strong with ‘Lust for Life’ a good example in a song that just builds and builds.

The vocal addition of Sir Elton John on ‘I Wish We Were Leaving’ adds to an already classy album which rightly has been given royal approval by the yellow brick road king himself.

The best track has to be ‘In Your Care’, a sad but beautiful tune about being far away from your loved ones but knowing that they are still there for you and always will be.

The production quality on the album is extremely high, particularly the four tracks produced by The Invisible Men – one of the hottest production teams around at the moment – which stand out.

The previous album ‘Make Me Believe in Hope’ was strong and with the new work, Rod Thomas and the band have stepped things up a gear with a very strong set of tunes that make you happy, wistful and excited all at the same time. Sit back and listen and this album will give you goose bumps.

Sorry in advance for my inarticulate review hopefully combined with the Amazon clips you'll get the full picture.

I loved this guy and loved his first album. I pre-ordered direct from the BLBL website so got a nice treat of the full album played as solo piano arrangements live in New York, similar to the Blueprints version of his first album. I played this on repeat so when I finally got the new album nearly a week before release it took me a few listens to get use to the full productions.

This album is certainly familiar but at the same different from the first album - there are several more chilled out tracks but still maintaining the synth/pop/dance/80s/90s goodness.

Lets just go into a track by track breakdown out of 10:

Everything I Ever Wanted - 10
A up/mid-ish tempo track that builds nicely - goose bumps when it hits about 2:20 and it really kicks in.

There are no miracles - 10
A self-help advice song that starts as it means to go on with a catchy chorus.

I Wish We Were Leaving - 6
The 2nd single from the album. From interviews I know Rod had a great time with Elton making this but it just seems little out of place on the album. It has the mix of downbeat lyrics with a mid-tempo melody but for me it is merely an okay song.

An Open Heart - 10
From the 1st single/EP this is a great up-tempo number.

Good Luck - 7
Reminds me of a 90s club mix of a track. About the perils of not enjoying the moment and always being after the next best thing.
The song is growing on me but the melody/beats are a little paired down for my liking.

I Believe - 10
Third (current at time of writing) single - ZOMG - Upbeat lyrics, euphoric upbeat melody - is this the same guy?
