Without a doubt, Joshua Radin is one of the most talented singer/songwriters. His lyrics speak to everyone and he sings them with such emotion you can't help but love every single song. There are some songs that are better than others but this is one of those cds you can listen to over and over again. Why he is not all over public radio I do not understand. His songs are featured all over tv and movies and each time they are used, they make the scene so much more powerful. He is truly amazing in person as well. He joined the crowd and did a small acoustic set with no microphone and although his voice seems very small he amazed me with the power his voice actual has. It is my opinion everyone should own every song and cd he ever puts out. If you truly love indie rock music, you will love Joshua Radin.

I love this album. It is one of my desert island discs!!! I came to Radin late, and mostly because of the TV series Scrubs which featured several of his songs. After sampling some of his wares, I have ended up with the entire discography!

This album however, is the jewel in the crown and the one for Newbies to start with. IMHO, there is no bad song in the set. I usually play the whole disc from start to finish without skipping any song...a rarity for me!!!

Radin is a exceptional musician. Lyrics are poignant, music is melodic and it all sounds so right!!! His songs are about relationships, friendships and other "normal" things that most people will relate to.

If Amazon had a six star rating, I would have given it to this album!!!

Very Highly recommended for all!!!

I've probably purchased more than 50 CD's in the last 12 months and none have seen more spin time on my stereo than Joshua Radin's Simple Times. I look for great music with great production. This is spot on. Radin has nailed the genre. Slow emotional songs are mixed with fun romps like my fav "Vegetable Car". Whisper folk music like this can get tedious and depressing, but no so with Radin's music. Even the slow emotional tracks have a positive uplifting message. And this offering does not get weak as you approach the last few songs. To the contrary, "You've got growing up to do" is one of the highlights of the CD. And if you happen to be an audiophile, this CD's production is flawless. The backup singing done by Patty Griffin on track 9 is haunting and beautiful and maintains a wonderfully distinct separation from Radin's voice. HIGHLY RECOMENDED!

Josh Radin's second offering, "Simple Times," improves on the semi-maudlin feeling of his first CD (We Were There). The music is more upbeat, more positive, and even has a bit of "swing" to it - at least some of the cuts. Definitely worth listening to, several times - the more I've listened, the more I've enjoyed! Hope you do, too!

Considering the unfaltering continuity of Joshua Radin's first (first popular, albeit technically his second album) it is justifiably difficult for him to top his own work. "We Were Here" is a flawless CD. In comparison, Simple Times is sort of just that--simple. The tunes are good, but nothing stood out to me as addicting and compelling or any other specific feeling I might have craved after his other album. Having said that though, it's his iTunes versions of his songs that do it for me...the song versions many of us heard him play on tour and enjoyed via myspace. The tunes are altered and are not as wonderful on the CD, sadly. I highly recommend downloading via iTunes, rather than buying this version even as much as I hate to say it considering I've met the guy twice and he's a gem, but we're talking about the CD here and it is what it is...

We are fans of Iron and Wine and like that station on Pandora. That, and the Weather Channel were were we first came across Joshua Radin. We had only heard one of his songs and immediately knew that we wanted to hear more. So, we ordered all three of his CDs and are thoroughly enjoying all of them! IF you are a fan of this type of music, as we are, you will love listening to all three of Radin's CDs over and over again.

Joshua Radin is a sad kind of man. He has girlfriends, he breaks up with them, he gets depressed. Then he writes songs about them. "Simple Things" is heavy on the "Why'd you leave me" songs, sung in Radin's whispery voice. Every once in awhile he strikes back, like on "You've Got Growing Up to Do." Or he has fantasies about his perfect eco-friendly girlfriend, who drives a "Vegetable Car."

While I think this is all in good fun, I feel Radin is at his best when he reaches into his troubadour hat and pulls out something as stunning as "No Envy No Fear."

"Every day we try to find
Search our hearts and our minds
The place we used to call our home
Can't be found when we're alone
So have no envy and no fear."

It is at this moment when Radin hits the target and matches the people he seems to most admire (James Taylor or Bob Dylan). He isn't there yet, but like fellow soft rocker John Meyer, it may take him a few albums to reach it. "Simple Times" shows that kind of promise.

For fans of David Grey and Jason Mraz.
