Subject matters on this debut from a London-based singer/songwriter touch on such things as despair, love and being safe in our comfort zones, as in "Safe In The Harbour", whilst also being "tired and burnt on religion" in "Burnt Out". The more upbeat pop-styled "My Mind", equipped with crisp electric guitars, is probably the best track and sounds to be a style Josh is more comfortable in. At other times the main vocals are strained and can intrude on what the song is trying to say. Arrangements are kept rather safe and in turn become predictable, also with the music at times less than tight it just is that bit limited and would've benefited from a bigger production. But credit where credit is due, it isn't easy following the restrictions of an independent release and there are some good songs here.
