Reseña de álbum

Oh quick, before it goes away, let's look at another example that shows the interconnectedness (dare we say incest?) of television and popular music: Joshua Radin, who would have never even pursued a songwriting career if it hadn't been for his friendship with Zach Braff, star of Scrubs and introducer of the Shins to the masses. Braff put Radin's song "Winter" on the show, a move that eventually led to a recording contract with Columbia and his debut, We Were Here, much to the excitement of thousands of female fans. Radin plays the role of the quiet, romantic, sensitive guy, obsessed with his own heart and that which surrounds it, and does it all pretty convincingly. His songs are intimate, vaguely postmodern (his frequent references to the entity of a song within the song itself) affairs about love, addressing an unnamed woman and contemplating the state of their relationship over quietly picked acoustic guitars and the occasional bowed accent. His voice is soft and airy, timid and gentle to the point of fragility (it is extremely hard to believe when he sings "I scream that I wanna be anyone but me" in "Amy's Song" that he's not being hyperbolic), and layered as if he were a kind of sickly, half-rate Elliott Smith. The late singer is definitely a huge influence for Radin (he's even thanked in the liner notes), but while Smith was able convey emotion not just through his words but through his voice, Radin is so expressionless (besides the occasional breathy sigh), or at least monotonous in his expression, that even the happier pieces still sound as if they're being sung upon his deathbed. And while he does have some good lines ("There's a hole in my pocket that's about her size," "I keep your picture in my worn-through shoes"), many of his rhymes seem a little forced, almost corny ("Photographs and brightly colored paper/Are your masks you wear in this caper," he whispers in "Closer"), which greatly takes away from the profundity he's apparently trying to reach. Add this to the fact that the songs all have a very similar, redundant quality to them and suddenly We Were Here doesn't distinguish itself much from any other semi-talented male singer/songwriter. Except this one is a friend of Zach Braff's, which has clearly made all the difference.

Time to find a new reviewer, I believe.

Yes, Joshua Radin is breathy. Yes, Joshua Radin's break came from being friends with Zach Braff. But don't kid yourself, reviewer - if your dream was to become a recording artist, and one of your friends just HAPPENED to be the star of a successful TV show known for playing unsigned musicians, would you honestly let that chance pass you by? Not to mention Joshua has gotten a fan following that has stretched farrrrrr beyond the people who watch Scrubs. Like me! I listen to this album on repeat every day before I go to bed, and it calms me down so much, it's like a medicine. His voice is soothing, his lyrics are strung together perfectly...a little breathiness never hurt anyone.

Wow! Who could write that about someone?

Dear Reviewer, First of all, the whole point of Itunes is to promote and encourage the music of different artists and to show the diversity of genres. Every reviewer is supposed to be unbiased and talk about the kinds of songs that artists plays. Just because you happen to not like his kind of music does not mean that it is horrible. You are driving customers away with your opinionated and biased review. Second of all, I have never seen or heard a review quite like this on Itunes. It sounds as though you are extremely jealous of him (which you are) so you are venting all of your negative thoughts. That is no way to do this. If you are jealous, just get over it because you will never have the amount of talent that Joshua Radin has. Lastly, you mentioned that Joshua wouldn't be here if not for his friend promoting him from Scrubs. So what? Friends are the most important thing in life! They help you, just as the guy in Scrubs did for Radin. That is not a horrible thing - friends help each other out, so don't say that in a negative way. It is common for people to do nice things for others, but apparently you do not think so (probably because no one has done anything nice for you!) Itunes - next time check the reviewer before you give them a job of reviewing albulms.

ITUNES! Change your reviewer!

My new favorite album. Star Mile is probably one of the most beautiful songs I've heard this year. And Sundrenched World drew me in from the beginning. The Elliot Smith-like qualities of Radin only add to his appeal for me (and let's face it, Elliot Smith stole his sound from Simon & Garfunkel!) The record is tight with only a few missteps, and these I'm sure will be overcome with time and more experience. Sorry Zach Braff, I can't stand your acting - but you do have exceptionally good taste in music, my friend. Keep bringing your talented friends to the table.

Biografía

Nacido(a): 14 de junio de 1974 en Shaker Heights, OH

Género: Alternativa

Años de actividad: '00s, '10s

Though Joshua Radin enjoyed singing during his childhood, the Cleveland native never intended to be a professional musician. Instead, he studied drawing and painting at Northwestern University, following his college years with stints as an art teacher, screenwriter, and art gallery employee. Eventually, Radin took a stab at songwriting and played one of his earliest compositions, "Winter," for his friend Zach Braff. The burgeoning actor/director took an immediate liking to the song, and "Winter"...
