Joseph Arthur & the Lonely Astronauts: Temporary People
Buy! - (Lonely Astronaut)
The acclaimed singer-songwriter’s put out a lot of music this year, releasing 4 EPs in quick succession, but he’s saved the best for last with this excellent full-length. Like most of Arthur’s work, Temporary People is notable for well-crafted songwriting and emotional depth, and while the Stones influences that colored 2006’s uncharacteristically slapdash Let’s Just Be can also be found here, they’re more seamlessly integrated into some powerful, anthemic rock songs. 7/29/2008 - Don Yates
