Since childhood, doctors warned Joshua Radin—who, as a toddler suffered a punctured eardrum, that he ran a grave risk of piercing pain if he ever immersed himself in water. “I said, ‘Alright, I’m just going to live my life on land,’” he explained. That changed last year. He was penning Underwater in Los Angeles in near seclusion—an antidote to the last ... Read more in Amazon's Joshua Radin Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple times...simply brilliant 7 Oct 2008
By Jacko
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The 2nd album from the finely hushed voice and songwriting talent that is Joshua Radin. give the hairs on your arms a workout because this album is just pure life affirming stuff, whatever mood your in this guy sings the songs to accompany the ups and downs, despair and dreams that are the stuff of everyday life/relationships et all. A must have purchase for the oncoming dark winter nights, it has quickly become one of my fave albums of 2008, hopefully he will play England again soon, have seen him twice already in the past couple of years and he is genius live...really, really good...

4.0 out of 5 stars New Kid on an Old Block 24 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of Joshua Radin for a long time, buying imports from the the States, Cary Brothers is another singer/songwriter you might enjoy if you like this album. Thoughtful and poignant this album extends Radin's musical journey. Lyrics are provocative and music is mellow yet it has punch. A great album to drive to on a warm summer's evening with the window down...

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning! 16 Oct 2008
By Mr. N. England VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I really didn't think Joshua Radin could top his first album but he has. He really has! I agree with the previous reviewer- this has to be one of the best albums of 2008.

If you like Sufjan Stevens or Josh Rouse you're gonna love this!

Buy it. You wont be sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple Times 12 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
After remaining pretty much unknown over here, Josh has finally released his second studio album to us. As with his first album it's full of whisper rock, so unlike the modern rubbish in the charts today. The album is a laid back affair and should prove to be popular :D

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple times, simple pleasures 30 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This guy is already being billed as "the latest new Jack Johnston/ James Blunt/whoever". The all crucial 4th album will tell whether he is more than a one hit wonder, but to concentrate on the first one to really come our attention thanks to Radio 2, Josh Radin is a writer of tunes that are ready made for the soundtrack of almost any contemporary American TV series, he is also a clever lyricist who writes naturally about life & love, normal hopes & fears & deserves to be much more than the UK summer sound of 2010. I would encourage you to explore beyond the slight cheesiness of the single "Brand New Day" & take the plunge & commit to buying, playing & sharing this album with your friends, family & lovers.

I saw this CD advertised on TV and went straight to the Amazon website to listen to some of the tracks. This guy's voice seemed calming, and his songs 'ballady' - reminding me a lot of Simon & Garfunkel. I therefore decided to purchase it, and haven't regretted it one bit. The songs are meaningful and thought-provoking ... and it's great for getting me through the ironing! All in all a very enjoyable album!

4.0 out of 5 stars Greater confidence, greater songs 27 Feb 2010
By T. Richards VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
From what I've found, most people - including myself - came to singer-songwriter Joshua Radin having heard a number of his songs on Scrubs. His whispery, slightly haunting, yet warming music from his earlier album, We Were Here, isn't to everyone's liking, but I took to it instantly. I was eager enough about Simple Times that I ordered it from across the pond.

Simple Times takes the quiet, acoustic, hands-on-hips-at-the-wedding We Were Here - too quiet and too acoustic for some tastes - and gives it a playful wink, a little extra something that ups the pace and activity by a tiny fraction.

Radin clearly enjoyed crafting this album, creating something that's just a little more active and upbeat than We Were Here, with slightly poppy 'Vegetable Car', 'Sky' and 'Free Of Me' just a couple of such tracks.

But don't be worried that Radin is merely pandering to a wider audience. The music that you'll have fallen in love with from Scrubs is still here in abundance. The guitar-work in 'I'd Rather Be With You' is some of his best, the lyrics still work more like poetry than anything, while Radin's familiar, gentle voice has developed slightly, becoming more confident across the entire album. Track five, 'Brand New Day', is a combination of everything that makes Radin so likeable.

In fact, the whole album feels far more finished, far more confident in its approach. It's not the most original of albums, granted, but it's more grown up, more polished, and if you liked We Were Here, you'll love Simple Times. And for those who have never heard of the guy, just think of a softer, quieter, calmer Jack Johnson and you wouldn't be far off.
