I first heard Justin Nozuka in the car on Sirius radio's Coffeehouse station - and immediately started saying his name over and over to myself so I wouldn't forget it when I got home. That one listen to "After Tonight" on Sirius was enough for me to get the CD as quickly as I could.

I was NOT disappointed. In fact, I've been listening to it more than anything else since it arrived.

A great mix of uptempo, bluesy tracks and thought-provoking sultry ones makes for what I consider a perfect CD. Justin's voice is smooth and he makes it all sound effortless with such control and feeling I lose myself to the songs. Some of my favorites:

Track #2, Golden Train - a feel good rhythm, it's hard to sit still, lyrics that make me smile everytime!

Track #3, Be Back Soon - LOVE this track's bluesy ache, seductive proclaimations!

Track #6, After Tonight - this one got me hooked as I noted above but it really only scratches the surface of what this CD has to offer.

Track #7, Criminal - more bluesy energy, yet it's got the components to be a great hit. It seems like the kind of song that a pub full of friends would sing along to while dancing in their chairs, finding it impossible not to move and feel alive.

Track #10, Save Him - will tear your heart out. A dark story yet sung with such feeling, emotion, conviction - I don't know what you'd call it, but perhaps one of the greatest things about music is that it can make you FEEL, and Justin Nozuka is at the top of my list of reasons to love music.

As I'm listening to the CD while writing this review, I'm having a hard time leaving out any songs as "favorites" - nearly any commentary for the songs above applies to the rest of the CD. Rarely is there a CD that doesn't have me skipping at least one track, but these all get LOTS of play in my car, my house, and my iPod.

I hope there is more where this came from, Justin!

I caught the song "After Tonight" on Sirius' Coffee House station and it really caught my attention... so I downloaded the one song and listed a few more times, then I had to get the rest of the album with my fingers crossed it wasn't just another 1-hit-wonder... well the gamble paid off. this kids got real talent. it's very original, blues style, has a feel of Justin Timberlake's funky sound but more on an acoustic level. I was very impressed, criminal and be back soon are more great tracks. can't go wrong with this one.

I saw a small part of a concert Justin did on DirectTV's channel 101 free concert series and was left wanting to hear more. This CD was soulfully satisfying to the highest level and I was glad I searched it out. Heart felt blues worthy of someone way beyond his short years. Great pick for someone looking for more than the Top 40 pop.

I was first introduced to Justin Nozuka's music by way of VH1. I saw the video for 'After Tonight' more times than I can count, and though at first I wasn't very fond of it, the song grew on me. Soon I couldn't get it out of my head, and then the next thing I knew, I was searching for his videos on YouTube. After listening to only three songs: 'After Tonight', 'Save Him', and 'Mr. Therapy Man', I had already decided that this was an amazing artist who's album I just had to own. When I bought and uploaded the album to my MP3 player, I didn't know exactly what to expect, but I was definitely optimistic. And I wasn't disappointed.

The one thing that sets Justin apart from other artists his age is his bluesy, soulful style. While listening to many of his songs, I could just picture myself in a dim, relaxed blues club; the cigarette smoke curling in the air and the room crowded with young and old alike swaying and clapping and whistling to the beat. Usually I don't listen to this genre, but Justin's music is refreshing in its originality and can be appreciated by any one who is a lover of music that is lovingly created with all the artist's heart and soul. Justin writes or co-writes all the songs on the album; a remarkable feat for someone so young. The only thing that saddens me is that he's likely to fall under the radar because he doesn't have that commercial pop sound that is so popular today. But whether he has 100 fans or 1 million, Justin Nozuka is definitely a singer that I'll support in any of his future endeavors.

My favorite tracks on the album are: 'Down in a Cold Dirty Well', 'Mr. Therapy Man', 'Criminal', 'Oh Momma'... actually, there's no track on this album that I didn't like!

In his debut album Holly, 18 year-old Canadian Justin Nozuka has created eleven impressive pieces of thoughtful acoustic-soul. Filled with understated melodies, minimal production and an interesting, sometimes dark take on song-craft, it comes as something of a surprise from one so young.

@@Justin likes to tell his stories from an unusual angle, evident in the very first track ''Down In A Cold Dirty Well'f where he takes the perspective of a man whose thoughts run back over his life while he is trapped...yes, at the bottom of a well. e'Save Him'' is another great example of Justinfs curious viewpoint; in one of the highlights of the album, he heart-rendingly sings of overhearing the development of an abusive relationship in the flat next door.

@@Of course in this genre it just wouldnft be cricket if we didnft have a few obvious love songs, and in this case they are provided by the colourful and optimistic beauty e'Golden Trainf' and the repetitive but spellbinding single-to-be e'After Tonightf'.

@@Justinfs voice suits his compositions perfectly, he has a rich, throaty mid-range, great for the bluesy elements, but he also has the ability and confidence even have a crack at some Timberlake-style highs, although he can sometimes go a little far and ends up sounding contrived and slightly parodic. That said this is still a superb album, filled with
raw quality. Just enjoy.
