Jon Mullane’s Born Beautiful is a touching pop-rock effort in the vein of Train and OneRepublic. The instrumentation present here reverberates loudly through the single, giving Mullane’s inimitable vocals a boost. The chiaroscuro between tidy hope and messy emotions is utilized well here. Born Beautiful’s chorus will tattoo itself deep into the minds of listeners, while there is a solid dynamic between the guitars, drums, and bass elements to put a nice bow on the effort. An instrumental-heavy interlude at the late-middle mark is enough to ratchet up the momentum of Mullane’s latest.
