Customer Review

on 12 May 2012
A terrific album! Blessed with a fine voice, pitch perfect, mellow rhythms and melody and imaginative lyrics, Josh Tillman has created a magical west coast masterpiece, reminiscent of the best of 60s/70s American country rock and the Beatles, White album territory.
His talent is evident in all of his previous understated releases, but here he steps forward into the light. Though Tillman has likely benefitted from his association with the Fleet Foxes (being the drummer), he is stands on his own with confidence. Whereas previous releases have been, in the main, understated, quiet, simple songs of fragile beauty, `Fear Fun' goes multicolour. Arrangements and production are lavish, giving the songs a sweet, warm, summer feel and there is a more variety across the album.
The songs are strong and varied throughout: the punchy, Beatlesy `Well, you can do it without me'; countrified `Tee Pees 1-12'; angelic, Hammond organ driven `O I long to feel your arms around me' - it all adds up to a very satisfying listen.

Dithered between 4 and 5 stars. However, the guy deserves great credit, and the first reviewer (excellent review!) gave 4, so 5 it is! More please!
