Marc Broussard is the epitome of classic. Known for his modern take on soulful tunes, the singer has been in huge demand since the release of his first major debut album in 2004. His latest album, A Life Worth Living, perfectly displays his signature sound of Southern rock, one that is unmistakably straight from the Bayou, as Broussard is a Louisiana native. The album, released on July 29, opens with “Hurricane Heart,” an already popular track that sets the powerful tone of the CD. As the tracks dip back and forth between pure rock and moving songs like “Perfect to Me,” it can easily be said that this album is a personal one.
The intimate notes continue in “Man Ain’t Supposed to Cry,” a song detailing relationship problems, as well as in the album’s title track, where Broussard sings a heartbreaking story of his late grandmother. “Honesty” is arguably the album’s greatest track, and one that shares the theme of “Man Ain’t Supposed to Cry” but includes a little more emotional range that the album needs.
A Life Worth Living seems to be a glimpse into the heart and mind of Broussard, as the recurring theme of the album is all the underlying issues that so many listeners can relate to. Whether it’s relationship troubles, love, or loss, Broussard consistently captures the raw emotions in his sound.
