On Life Without You, Mark Newman is able to make an impassioned, funky rock track that soars due to interesting arrangements and a timeless set of vocals. While the song builds upon the 1970s type of rock of Thin Lizzy and Wild Cherry, there is a vibrancy present throughout Newman’s latest that will make his latest into something special for many eras of fans. The contemplative instrumental dynamic that kicks in at about the 2:10 mark incorporates Parliament-style funk, Santana-infused guitars, and a bouncy beat that will bury itself deep into listeners’ brains. The track has enough to it that fans will be able to find new dynamics even ten or fifteen spins in.
