Album Review

Pianist William Joseph's debut album, Within mixes instrumental pop, classical compositions, and reworked rock tunes into an atmospheric mélange that seems to be aimed at a middle ground between classical and new age. Most likely appealing to fans of lite-classical artists such as Josh Groban and Jim Brickman, Within features Joseph at the piano backed by strings both real and synthesized as well as a shiny layer of orchestral and programmed beats all via the production wizardry of Grammy winner David Foster. Despite hip crossover attempts with Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir and the soft rock classic "Dust in the Wind," the album works best as a kind of background music as there isn't much difference between his "pop" tunes and such classical standards as "Ave Maria." A crisp technician, Joseph does display a marked intensity on the title track and that coupled with his darkly handsome, matinee idol looks should garner him more interest than this album might have otherwise.

Customer Reviews


I just saw William in concert last nite when he opened for Clay Aiken's 'Joyful Noise Tour 2005.' I sat in utter amazement. Closed my eyes and let the music take me away. 'Homeward Bound' is the greatest song and I can't stop listening to it! He made me a fan last nite. Buy this CD!!


This extremely gifted and hard-working musician deserves all the limelight he's enjoying. For very good reason: THIS is REAL music. REAL talent. Astonishing compositions and complex arrangements make for hours of listening enjoyment. Listen on a good system, though, and you'll be able to hear the deep layers of good recording practice and, of course, the music as it was intended to be. Butterflies and Hurricanes moved me to tears the first time I heard it. Absolutely astonishing!


I've seen William twce now, both times when he opened for Clay Aiken. WOW. He is absolutely amazing. I recommend this album to anyone looking for a nice, relaxing day at home or work. Homeward Bound and Kashmir are my favorites. William is a talent I've never seen or heard before. BUY WITHIN. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!!!
