Product Description

Amazon.com

First single and leadoff track "I Want to Live" sets the tone for American Idol castoff Josh Gracin's self-titled debut fairly and honestly, as befits the shucks-y'all persona of this country-steeped Marine. Shuffle through, and the same rich, even-keeled yearning, pleading, and--when he's feeling plucky--persuading crop up song to song. It's soothing. It's get-what-you-paid-for satisfying. And it sails along like a sunny afternoon spent zipping along a southern highway. But it's also a little too simple, leaving the sense that Gracin, or somebody at his label, isn't quite ready to scuff up his cowboy boots by kicking it full twang ahead on a single track. Still, give him a pass this time for playing it safe: next go-round, with any luck, he will have scrapped his Garth Brooks influences (they come through loud and clear here on several tracks) and found a boot-stomper better suited to letting his honeyed--and humble--pipes dip, swerve, and soar. --Tammy La Gorce

I'm not really a country music fan, but I'm a fan of this guy! When I first heard him sing on American Idol, I thought he needed to be on Nashville Star, but he still made it to the Top 5.
He has such a genuine country voice! Voices like this only come along once in a while. From the first note, you know he was meant to sing country. I think that's what I like best - that he's singing what he should be, and that comes through in this very good, very veteran sounding debut.
My favorite song is "I Want To Live". As soon as I heard it, I knew I would be buying the CD. "Turn It Up" is my next favorite...an upbeat song that should make it to the Top 10. "No One To Share The Blame" is a ballad with nice chord changes and background vocal support. The rest of the album is very good and boils down to FIVE STARS for me.
If you are a fan of Josh's or just a country fan, this CD is for you! It's very consistent and nails the genre squarely.
PS: I have to comment on the Amazon.com editorial review done by Tammy La Gorce (you can see this review right under the song selections). Honey, you need to write so people can read and understand reviews. Also, what credentials do you have to intimate that a Garth Brooks-like album is bad?? You say "Still give him a pass..". A pass?? This album deserves more credit than that and I'd doubt you have background to issue a pass/fail grade. Thank you.

Josh has such a GREAT country voice. This is what he was meant to be singing. He's simply amazing, and this album show that. He has a smooth country voice, and the writers of these songs showed that off and had great lyrics.
1. I Want To Live - An amazing song! Talks about how he wants to do something with his life and not just throw it away. He voice is so mellow and smooth in this song. 9/10
2. Wheels - Talks about missing a girl. More of a ballad, but yet it isn't. It's a little quick to be a ballad, but good all the same. 8/10
3. Nothin' To Lose - What a great song! He sings about how a girl has him 'under her spell'. Fun lyrics, great beat. This is my personal favotire track, but it might not be for everyone. 10/10
4. Brass Bed - Now this is more of a ballad. Sweet song about a girl and him who (I suppose) are having rough times in their life, and he's asking her to stay with him. Might have some hidden meaning. 8/10
5. Peace of Mind - I can't really remember this track all that well. To me, that says, not a great song, not a awful song, just there.
6. Endless Hopeless Hoping - Fun song about wanting a girl. Quicker and fun. 9/10
7. No One To Share The Blame - This is a sad song about how he cheated on a girl and lost her, and now he has no one to share the blame for that. Sweet and sad. 9/10
8. I Would Look Good With You - Twangy, true country, and fun. I liked it a lot, 9/10
9. Turn It Up - Great, great song! It's about him and a girl, and his girl just wants to jam and dance to the radio. This is one of the songs that should be released as a single.Wonderful! 10/10
10. The Long One - It's about a long night, wishing for something.

Now that Josh Gracin is free to record a debut in the genre in which he was meant to sing (Country), he soars!!!! I am not going to go into detail on each track.....just know that there are ballads and uptempo songs.....with deep lyrics and fun lyrics.....a great start to a promising career! Keep it up Josh!

Josh Gracin's debut album clearly showcases the talent that ultimately led to a fourth place finish on American Idol 2. However, while the general sound and style is the same, the album indicates a stronger vocal quality-the result of months of training.
A heavy country-pop presence is seen right from the start, in the album's first track and single, "I Want to Live". Both the chorus of "I Want to Live" and the following track "Wheels" include catchy choruses that you'll be singing along to in no time. The third track of "Nothin' To Lose" is perhaps the best off the album. Not as slow as the previous two songs, the song's fast tempo could easily turn it into a popular dance song.
Another standout from the album is the closing track, "The Other Little Soldier". Much slower than the opening tracks, this particular song is more of a ballad in style and lyrical form. Overall, the album consists of a solid country-pop compilation, with a consistent mixture of quality tracks.

I have followed Josh since the first time I heard him open his mouth at the auditions on AI. He's a natural and this CD definitely showcases his beautiful country sounding voice. For this being his debut CD, he could blow some well-known country singers away. Every song is worth a listen. I was pleased when I played this last night. You'll want to listen to this over and over again. It's a feel good CD. I knew that Josh was going to go places, hopefully he will be around for a long time. The bad reviews are a bunch of rubbish, I honestly don't believe they were listening to the same CD. Buy this now if you don't have it, it's worth its price for sure. I wish they would have included his renditions of I'll Be and Amazed as bonus tracks, that's the only thing I can think of in the line of a complaint, but I guess it's more of wondering why they weren't there as opposed to a complaint.
