Editorial Reviews

Review

Any artist that describes their music as alternative crunk deserves a listen by anyone, if even just to try find out what the deuce crunk is. As it turns out, crunk is a pretty good mix of indie rock, if the album Headlight In The Sun from Californian singer-songwriter Joshua Path is anything to go by.

This is actually Path s fifth release, and if the rest are as good as this, then perhaps it's time to start hunting out the earlier albums.

The music of Path has been described as how the Beatles would sound if they ever jammed with the Goo Goo Dolls, and listening to the fare on offer here, it s hard to disagree. The title track is a semi-acoustic jaunt through Noel Gallagher (Oasis) territory, even down to the drum roll that s straight from that band s classic Don't Look Back In Anger. It's an immediate hook, and a good sign of things to come.

Sleep In Your Sunshine is next up, and it's a heavier affair that brings to mind REO Speedwagon, for some strange reason, yet it's a sound that works. Multi-layered vocals combine over a chugging guitar riff that drags you in, until the song ends and you find yourself hitting the replay button.

Eastern Town harks a little to Pete Yorn, yet never in a negative way. Much like that singer-songwriter likes to mix in slow and heavy in the same song, so does Path here, with acoustic trading with electric as the chorus kicks in, complete with sing-along backing which you just know is ripe for crowd participation when Path plays live.

In fact, this diversity is present in all 15 songs on offer here - from lilting ballads complete with strings, to up-tempo rockers that would sit just as easily on a Weezer album as they would on a release from the sunshine state. It's perhaps not surprising that Path was initially considering releasing the album in two parts, a la Ryan Adams and his Love Is Hell releases. Thankfully, the decision was made to keep the album to one single release, and it pays off in droves here.

Songs like Brenda Brenda and Devil At My Door show a heavy side that suits Path well, and puts him in the same kind of company as the Goo Goo Dolls and Jeff Buckley, as well as offering the listener a look at what earlier Path albums may hold. Then you have tracks like the absolutely beautiful Angels Don't Come Round Here No More with its warning about how love never works, and It Was Over Before It Began instilling a feel of Mamas and Papas storytelling.

There's always a risk that an album that has two distinctly different themes running through it can fail, often proving just too eclectic for the listener. However, with Headlight In The Sun, Joshua Path has released an album that not only mixes the smooth with the rough to perfection, he's laid down a marker for anyone else wishing to do the same to follow. Highly recommended. --Indie-Music.com

The Santa Monica, CA singer-songwriter Joshua Path is quite a bit more than meets the eye. When I first thumbed through the press sheet, and glanced at the cover I assumed the worst. Yet another middling male singer-songwriter with an acoustic guitar. Oh, joy.

But nay my friends, I was very, very wrong. Joshua Path is a maddening amalgamation of styles so much so that just when you think you ve got him penned, he throws out something from the left field and you re just digging him all over again. He skirts from acoustic pop, rock, a dash of synth and everything in-between and just makes good music; style be damned.

My favorite tunes from the fifteen here to choose from include most notably the title track, and Angels Don't Come Round Here No More; now that is a good song. if you're looking for something new, with a hint of old, and everything in-between; Joshua Path is your man. --Sound The Sirens

There are certain artists who blow their wad on their first album (Boston, The Strokes, perhaps even The Knack). After that, their career is a pathetic series of attempts to regain the magic and majesty of their early days.

But some only get better with time. Their artistry grows and develops with each album, and each album becomes an event (instead of fodder for 99¢ bins). Joshua Path is, most certainly, one of those artists. And Headlight In The Sun, Path's fifth album, is solid evidence of this.

Path has never been easy to categorize. You could list him under the indie-alternative-singer/songwriter label, but that would be a mistake. In fact, the title Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not seems far more appropriate for Joshua Path than The Arctic Monkeys.

And on Headlight In The Sun, Joshua Path proves he is the ultimate musical shape shifter. On Track One, Path plunges head first into a solid radio hit on the title track, an ode to someone who pursued stardom, but tragically never achieved it.

From there, Path transitions from a hit song into what could be (and should be) an utter monster, Sleep In Your Sunshine, a lover's anthem if ever there was one.

But Spider Of Love shows that we re listening to a true singer/songwriter, and not Nickelback. With the artistic prowess of Elliot Smith and ethereal musings similar to Tori Amos, Path deftly sings about...well, I'm not exactly sure what, but it's damn good.

In the end, I can only quote George Bernard Shaw: There are two great tragedies in life. One is to not get your heart's desire. The other is to get it. On this eloquent and impassioned CD, Joshua Path may be writing about the first tragedy. But after writing and recording songs such as these, he's bound to experience the second. --Indie News, Ltd.
