Beautiful Goodbye

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
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.

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.
