Joseph Arthur (Akron, OH, 1971) had already been writing songs and playing music as a child. At the tender age of 16 he was the bass player for Frankie Starr and the Chill Factor which broke up in 1990, but fate was kind to Arthur a few years later when while working in a guitar shop in Georgia he was discovered by none other than Peter Gabriel.
Gabriel was impressed enough with ... Read more in Amazon's Joseph Arthur Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Daydream 29 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
The latest release from Joseph Arthur shines above and beyond his last outing 'Our Shadows Will Remain' (not counting 'We Almost Made It' as it was only available on his website) Outstanding tracks on the album are very hard to choose because there are so many, 'Electrical Storm' and 'Enough To Get Away' are the most likely to be released. 'Automatic Situation' is an electronic masterpiece...simple but very moving. 'When I Was Runnning Out Of Time' is a flashback to 'Come To Where I'm From'.The overall feel of the album is very cinematic, each song will move you in a different way...an amazing artist...an amazing album. Get this album if you want to hear what John Lennon would have sounded like had he not been taken too early.

5.0 out of 5 stars Arthur has come out of the dark 5 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
Joseph Arthur is well renowened for his dark, somber perhaps secluded song writing. this album however takes a turn towards the brighter side of his thoughts. There are some instant classics of the genre included on the album, 'when I was running out of time', 'electrical storm' and the finale 'nuclear daydream'. In all the album has definitky progressed from 'Our Shadows Will Remain', which is also a must, Arthur's song writing is as melodic and enchanting as ever before. A Dylan for the 21st Century, probably not. Howver this man is a great singer songwriter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Daydream Believer! 19 Sep 2006
By Elan Bodwick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This latest record from who i consider to be the best american solo artist is another step foward for Mr. Arthur. I would say its not quite as dark as Our shadows will remain, more closer to Redemptions Son in sound and songwriting. Joseph returns to his acoustic guitar and allover the place vocals that made the last three records so compelling. The songs here are all strong- more sparse and relaxed than previous efforts -some have that potential small time hit as all Arthur records have- but most are just written with art and heart at mind. Arthur seems comfortable being a cult artist and isnt trying to compromise his vision for mainstream success. Nuclear Daydream is a great introduction to a new fan- and old fans will be pleased. Soundwise there is a very strong hint of early Neil Young- not only vocally at times but in the song structures though Arthurs innovative use of live loops and electronic touches makes it sound modern and different. The rich textures with piano synth strings and ofcourse real drums are scattered among the tracks and Arthurs voice morphs high and low dramatically with odd vocal treatments especially in the choruses. The slower songs all have that lazy haunting voice that fans have come to love and i would say Nuclear Daydream sits well beside come to where im from and redemptions as his best work. Hes touring now so catch his amazing live show- a real one man band in action.

4.0 out of 5 stars Will make many "best of" lists 20 Sep 2006
By loce_the_wizard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
On "Nuclear Daydream (Dig)," Joseph Arthur unclutters his sound and relies more on arrangements and simple acoustic guitar. The results are a leaner sound, one that has more space and fewer layers---not that one should expect anything sparse! (I felt that at times his creative instincts were overwhelming, even distracting, on his previous release "Our Shadows Will Remain.") These songs, which are tales about troubled lives, troubled relationships, finding love, and soul searching may not mine any new territory, but they have a lilting energy that recalls Nick Drake in his rare up moments.

Mr. Arthur's distinct singing voice and shimmering guitar dominate this recording (I'm so glad he has not made an acoustic album), and his knack for layering choruses and plying emotion from a multitude of instruments and effects shine throughout "Nuclear Daydream (Dig)." I suspect this CD will make many "best of" lists in the coming year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Of singer/songwriters, Best of '06 7 Nov 2006
By J. W. Webb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Was a bit skeptical of buying this album given that I was not thrilled with the "Come to Where I'm From" album (except for In the Sun, Chemical), but I was sold with Black Lexus on a Paste CD and Slide Away on Letterman. Thankfully, of the singer/songwriters, probably the best album since Josh Rouse's Nashville ... both smooth albums, although the similarities end there. Enough to Get Away makes you smile with every listen, and some fine strumming underlies most of the other songs. The album will not likely disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just a Pleasure 20 April 2007
By cmw - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Saw Joseph Arthur on TV one night and decided to get the CD. WOW! It is absolutely a pleasure. Like to play it while I do paperwork or as background music when a few friends are over. I realize this is not a "profound" review; I just wanted to weigh in and say this is a melodic, soft, beautiful CD. Very, very enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joseph does it again..... 24 Sep 2006
By R. Steven Wolfe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have yet to meet anyone who even knows who Joseph Arthur is. As a professional DJ, and exposed to music of all genres, I have never been so moved by an "artist" as I have by Arthur's music, poetry, lyrics and artwork. I will have the opportunity to see him live in less than 1 month, and very timely as the new release on his own label of "Nuclear Daydream" is more consistant in style than any of his other work. With so many styles on each CD, and there are many, I was so pleased to see him follow suit with each song. I love all his music, but he has never been afraid to "switch gears" in style from one song to the next. This album flows so smoothly with such simplicity. Each song is very melodic and the vocal layers are amazing. This is also the first Joseph Arthur CD I have seen at a commercial record store! This could be his best work to date, but that is no surprise to me. I have anticipated it's release for months, and knew in my heart it would be just that. I sensed a spiritual struggle in Joseph's life, coming out in his artwork and music, sometimes unsettling, but he seems to have come to terms generating a "peace" in theses songs that must be heard to fully understand. Joseph Arthur is a such a well kept "secret" in the music industry, I hope this album helps him surface to the heights he deserves to be at with greater recognition.
