Album Review

Never one to lack confidence in his abilities, Joseph Arthur released a full album's worth of material during the first four months of 2008, collected on the EPs Could We Survive and Crazy Rain (with the promise of more to come, of course). Very similar to the previous year's Let's Just Be, Crazy Rain has up-front productions with buzzing guitars and distorted effects making the largest impression.
