‘Beggars Gold’ started off as 22 songs, later trimmed to 13, only the best of the best included on the final cut. The album hits hard and is a relentless rollercoaster ride combining strong hooks & riffs as in ‘Playing with Fire’, ‘Never Say Die’, ‘Blind’, ‘Our Song’ & ‘In Everyone of Us’.
Tackling issues like self-confidence, bullying, drug/alcohol abuse & homelessness in songs like ‘Stone by Stone’, ‘Beggars Gold’ & ‘In Everyone of Us’, only adds more dynamics to the album. ‘Take a Look at Me Now’, highlights Mitchell’s songwriting craft, written about the disillusioned, talent show generation, with a tongue in cheek, sinister twist. The ‘Beggars Gold’ album tries to give everything that any true melodic/AOR rock fan would want to hear from an album. Mitchell has thrown everything at this one, huge guitar riffs, anthemic choruses, gospel choirs, epic harmonies & raw, honest powerful rock vocals.
‘Beggars Gold’ is released in two formats – regular jewel case CD and a limited Special Edition.
