Jim Santo's Demo Universe

Anthony Joseph - Flying At The Speed Of Emotion

Anthony Joseph's debut release scores on a few points: he sings well, is a competent guitarist and has apperently taken great care to arrange, perform and record his affable pop-rock songs to professional standards. Unfortunately, Joseph is a mediocre songwriter with little evident sense of melody and lyrical structure (the album's awkward title hints at the cumbersome phrasing that litters these 10 songs). Flying was not a chore to get through, but I won't be back for more.
