Bravo!! Stephen Reso's ''Ordinary Life'' is an extra-ordinary rock CD leaving you captivated by his strong craftsmanship of song writing, real life authentic lyrics and a resonating soulful voice. Reso displays a diverse sample of influences while maintaining a core continuity that makes this record strong and flow from start to finish. From the radio friendly title cut to the punk influenced ''DemiGod'', from the dark raspy crooning of ''Not Gonna Live'' to the raw acoustic masterpiece ''Too Close To Hide'', and from the grinding reality of ''Bite'' to the bitter-sweet gem ''Breaking Everything'', this record is a must have for any modern rock fan. ''I Was The One'', ''You Had It All'' and ''Make Up Your Mind'' are all solid straight-forward rock songs that could easily be played on a majority of modern rock radio stations across the country. ''Not That Stupid'' is a remake of his own work recorded while being the front man for the Underground Cartoons. This darker-edged rendition breathes new life into the song and is even better this time around. Last but not least, ''Cry'' and ''Beat Slowly Down'' exposes a profound and more personal side to Reso's life that grabs and drags you along with him at will. Reso's presence on-stage is always tremendous and his first full-length CD enhances his reputation as a force to be reckoned with in the recording industry. I look forward to his tour and next record.

This CD has so many different sounds that Stephen Reso did not make one song sound like the next. There is jamming sounds to a more quiet acustic guitar solo. Every song has its own beat and diverse lyrics. Stephen is an amazing song writer. The words he choses are perfect and everyone can relate. How can I hear more?
