5.0 out of 5 stars Nelson Twins Grow Up Talented December 3, 2004
By lej
Format:Audio CD
Their talent is evident in the cd - no copy cat of their father Ricky Nelson either! Cd spans feelings and thought provoking emotion that we all experience. The cute little blond twins have grown up into their own - no wonder they hit guinness book of world records as a family with 3 generations of #1 hit songs. "A Girl Like That" is just lovely with a great rockin' beat. You'll sing it after a couple listens and wake up singing it. Just sweet but modern. Buy this cd - you will relate. Softer edge. Good intro to the Nelson brothers. A friend of mine bought it at a concert; didn't even know the Nelsons and just loves it. [...]

5.0 out of 5 stars Nelson is "Life" July 12, 2001
By Beth
Format:Audio CD
First off, I must say that Matthew and Gunnar have always written their own music. There are a few songs they had co-written and up until recently, all of the music they performed was their own. Recently, they have also included a few songs written by songwriters, though the largest percentage is still their own. The title track is a re-make of one of my favorite Rick Nelson songs, and the whole album is great. I constantly hear people telling me that Nelson can't be good, we don't hear it on Top40, have you listened to Top40 lately, it is all the same regurgitated mush, that is the reason you don't find true artists that speak to you through their music on a personal level on Top40. Just like their father their talent is being over-looked.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life-A great album for everyone March 28, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album displays an amazing depth and pedigree. These two guys are not only incredibly talented vocalists, but also show their ability to write mature and well crafted songs, and if thats not enough it's also self produced. Being the twin sons of the late Rick Nelson shows that they have inherited their fathers talent for music. I think this album appeals to most audiences young and old, and is just crammed full of tunes that will find you humming along.Their influences of rock,pop and country all blend together to makes this a very good album. If you like your albums full of good melodic, catchy tunes then you'll enjoy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good mix of songs June 18, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Matthew and Gunnar's "Life" CD showed a good mix of songs and their typical great harmonies. The song, Life, written by their father, Rick Nelson, features some soul searching questions. A girl Like That is one of my favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love the Nelsons!! April 26, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have ALL of their CDs and just love them all. I'll do reviews on the others too.

On this CD, I especially like: I WOULD IF YOU WANT ME TO (fun); EVERBODY CRIES SOMETIMES (romance gone wrong); SHE SAID SHE'D BE MINE (very romantic) and THE HUNGER (grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr).

You will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Vital Signs" of the 90s October 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Nelson's "Life" is an essential 90s pop rock release for music fans who favor 80s great pop rock such as Survivor's Vital Signs, Hooter's Nervous Night, Starship's Knee Deep In A Hoopla, Mr. Mister's Welcome To The Real World or Outfield's Play Deep. And it is even better than their masterpiece debut album After The Rain.
The difference between After The Rain and Life is obvious. In After The Rain the music was not theirs. They were basically performers. But in Life they created music of their own and it is hilarious.
My #1 favorite is She Sheila. It reminds me a bit of Vital Signs/When Seconds Count era Survivor or 80s Bon Jovi. It is typical but best so far of Nelson twin's Roller Coaster Rock'n Roll. Everybody Cries Sometimes and I would If You Want Me To are excellent tracks as well. All tracks are excellent and having no fillers.You may not expect such a fine work these days from similar styled rock artists.
I would say it is a commercial album worth 10 million sales worldwide.

If you are a fan of POP music( and I'm NOT talking about the modern lifeless, SOUL-less,lackluster stuff they call 'pop' on the radio these days)then DO NOT HESITATE to get hold of this c.d.-it's a stellar release from this duo( and band)!!This country obviously is in DIRE need of a new radio station formatted towards QUALITY pop/rock so that people can hear great music such as EVERY song on this disc!!...ENJOY!!

1.0 out of 5 stars don't waste your money
Don't waste your time or money on this item. If you loved After the Rain, keep that in your heart, because this album is nowhere close.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best
I own all 7 Nelson CD's and I have to say that I like none better than Life. "A girl like that" is unbelievably good. Very fun CD.
