From the first time I listened to it, I LOVED IT!!! At times, I swore I was listening to John sing. He is hauntingly similar to his father, and that is a good thing! But, in voice only. Yes, he has some of the same unconscious mannerisms and stances of John, but, Julian has his own UNIQUE, beautiful style that really touched my heart. His voice has a lovely timbre, and he is quite talented in his writing, singing and playing of various instruments.
The songs themselves are so varied, from the Environmentally conscious "How Many Times" to the hopeful "Faithful" and "Day After Day" to the lighthearted "Kiss Beyond the Catcher" to yet another depth with "Good to be Lonely" and "Believe", personal favorites of mine. Hopeful songs in themselves. Other notables are "She Cries" "I Should Have Known" "Cold" and "Walls". Oh heck! The whole album is worth listening to OVER and OVER for the rest of your life!!! In fact, I'm listening to it as I write this review.
It's sad that today's music has changed so much, now we have to endure hip hop and rap dominating the charts, real musicians like Julian have been overlooked in favor of the one-hit wonders and fads that grow old quickly.Read more ›
But nowhere before does he sound more like John than on this album. From the start, with 'Day After Day' the role is written and sung, and never more beautiful. Julian has said this is the album he spent the most time on, to give his fans the 'real' Julian, and if there's more where this came from, I say bring it on. Emotions, raw, deep, questioning, fill this work. Loss, love, doubt, it's all here. My favorite would have to be 'Good to be Lonely'..."I've been disconnected, Loved and Rejected, travelling inside of my soul...it's good to be lonely, sometimes, 's better than nothing at all, it's good to be lonely, sometimes, a' least I'm prepared for the fall...and it's better than nothing at all...'a track about surviving, getting the guts to sustain one's self, after the world has let you down. It's a mantra to survival, and who has had to survive more than Julian? Who has had more to live up to, and with so little to work with, besides one's heritage? The songs 'Photograph Smile' and 'Way to Your Heart' leave me in tears each time I hear them, much like John's songs 'Oh my Love' and 'Mother' have the same effect. A truly soulful work, and one I listen to over and over again, as if I'm hearing it for the first time. Truly beautiful...the son that John left in the cold has come back warm, real and with real heart. I'm sure that somewhere in the afterlife, he's smiling and praising him.

some of Julian's best signing and writing, I admire Julian and everything he went through. He exorcizes some past history here. If you like Julian, find this disc. Read morePublished 6 days ago by buzzardbreadth

But if your not expecting Rock and Roll, there are some very fine songs on this... Read more
