It’s great when you put on an al­bum and im­me­di­ately feel an affin­ity with it. That’s ex­actly what we have with this re­lease from Cana­dian singer­song­writer Josh Taerk. It’s unashamedly commercial, the mu­sic ly­ing some­where be­tween Jack­son Browne and Bruce Spring­steen. But the tracks have a won­der­fully fresh qual­ity that al­lows them to breathe, so even with the band in full swing it’s easy to re­lax into the sound. Open­ing track, I’ll Live For You is clas­sic soft rock with stun­ning lead gui­tar work; My An­gel has an air of Del Amitri about it (and noth­ing wrong with that), while Casie is an­other re­ally strong track that has been selected as the sin­gle. It’s a great al­bum! There’s also a deluxe ver­sion that in­cludes four of the tracks with just vo­cals and acous­tic gui­tar - this one’s def­i­nitely worth a lis­ten.
