Album Review

Josh Wilson has that air about him, as if he's been doing this since the day he was born. And why not — his debut album is an example of a Christian record done right in every way. His witness is at the forefront, his songwriting is second to none, his lyrical imagery is new and vivid, and his hooks are everywhere. Production by Steve Wilson, Matt Bronleewe, and Jeff Pardo adds a contemporary sound that matches any output from Jason Mraz or John Mayer. Yet, the songs are far from sounding dated or trendy; they have staying power because they offer listeners a true musical experience. They draw attention to the subject matter, not the artist. Wilson has the chops and versatility to belt out a chorus with vocal acrobatics, yet he never gluts himself oversinging. The title track is his way of saying how difficult it is to fit the love for God into a pop song. But it may also be a humble nod of appreciation to the thousands of fans on MySpace and at his shows whose support eventually helped him gain a prime spot on the legendary Sparrow Records roster. With such a likeable entrance into the contemporary Christian world, Wilson would have plenty of pressure to keep pace with future releases.

Customer Reviews

Josh Wilson is a fantastic Christian artist!

I absolutely LOVE the blend of folk, pop and rock fused together! The banjo and folk-y type music really is not something that is typically added into Christian rock/pop music so it’s really quite awesome that Josh has included it into his genre of Christian rock. His messages through his music are also very encouraging and motivating. Love the strings!
