Blindly, Lonely, Lovely

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Matt Collar
Josh Krajcik's major-label debut, Blindly, Lonely, Lovely showcases the soulful talent that helped the vocalist nab the runner-up slot on the 2011 season of FOX's The X-Factor vocal competition. Despite his trial by reality TV fire, Krajcik is no newbie to the music business, having previously released two independent albums with the Josh Krajcik Band. Thankfully, he gets writing credits on all of the songs on Blindly, Lonely, Lovely, which lends the album an earnest, personal quality. With his burnished, robust vocal style, Krajcik often brings to mind such similarly inclined singers as John Mayer and Blues Traveler's John Popper. In some ways, with his album's mix of ...

All Music Guide - Matt Collar
Josh Krajcik's major-label debut, Blindly, Lonely, Lovely showcases the soulful talent that helped the vocalist nab the runner-up slot on the 2011 season of FOX's The X-Factor vocal competition. Despite his trial by reality TV fire, Krajcik is no newbie to the music business, having previously released two independent albums with the Josh Krajcik Band. Thankfully, he gets writing credits on all of the songs on Blindly, Lonely, Lovely, which lends the album an earnest, personal quality. With his burnished, robust vocal style, Krajcik often brings to mind such similarly inclined singers as John Mayer and Blues Traveler's John Popper. In some ways, with his album's mix of R&B-inflected anthems, ruminative ballads, and earthy singer/songwriter pop tunes, Krajcik also brings to mind British sensation Adele. The comparison isn't so far-fetched, as longtime Adele producer and songwriting partner Eg White has co-penned several tracks here for Krajcik. Also adding some inspired production touches are Chris Seefried, Julien Bunetta, and Steve Robson, all get co-writing credits here. To these ends, there are such stand-out tracks as the roiling, bluesy, '70s-influenced "Nothing," the dramatic "Back Where We Belong," and the orchestral, soft rock-inflected ballad "One Thing She'll Never Know," which, as with many of the songs on the album, sounds something along the lines of Joe Cocker singing a Robyn Thicke song. Ultimately, Blindly, Lonely, Lovely showcases a passionate singer with a knack for mixing a vintage soul sound with a contemporary pop aesthetic.
