I'm a fan of Josh's music since discovering him a few years back, each album has been a joy to listen to and I find myself playing them more than any other artist. He's one of those people where I just keep wondering how the hell does he keep releasing such great material, surely it's got to run out? Some people aren't as keen on his later Spanish influenced work compared to his earlier stuff. Myself, I enjoy both periods equally. So where does this album fit in?
Early blurb revealed Josh has gone back to his roots, more 1972 than El Turista and that is mainly the case. As others have said on here, this album could be a lost gem from the 70's, it just has that feel to it, and I'm talking rose tinted 70's, all sunny days and good times. The songs just jump out at you and will just keep going around in your head. I can actually hear a lot of his later style amongst the 70's sound and to me this album feels like someone is torn between two worlds, his life in Valencia and his home country, in fact he says as much in 'Our Love' and I'm pretty sure a couple of other times throughout the album. This to me has the effect of Josh going back to his roots but having that something else to bring to his music and it pays off hugely.
It's pointless picking stand out tracks as each on is a gem, they're all standouts. If you haven't heard any of Josh's previous albums (you have missed out if that's the case) then this album is the perfect time to get into his music and I can guarantee from there you'll do as I did a few years back and get your hands on his back catalogue...and be blown away. If there's one thing I can say about Josh it's that his music really is an absolute joy to listen to. Now go out and buy it....and to keep with the 70's vibe, go buy yourself a record deck and order this on vinyl.
