Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Cory Joseph’s new record is an ep of six tracks of energetic pop/rock with some great tunes.

The opening title song rocks out pretty cunningly and has a dynamite chorus. It reminds me of Ryan Adams a bit.

She Deserves to be Happy is a nice look at his softer side, an empathetic ballad with some terrific vocals. Joseph’s really good at that and the Americana feel fits in well.

Till You Come Back Around gets a little funky and Joseph’s well up to that task as well. He has a distinctive voice and it sounds cool here.

Better This Time is tougher and Joseph wears the confidence well. It’s one of the best cuts on this promising ep.
