Overview

Josh Bates' debut came with much ado predominantly because of his record label. He was the second artist to sign with Beach Street Records following the ubiquitous Casting Crowns. Many in the CCM community couldn't help but wonder if the same phenomenal success would follow Bates, a strong vocalist, guitarist, pianist, and mandolin player. And with the same production team that backed Casting Crowns, there are few missteps on this Southern adult contemporary record. Bates' floating tenor soars above guitar work that progresses at an easy gait. But where Crowns' Mark Hall was able to challenge the church with calls to action, Bates takes a back seat and offers a more comfort-filled message. His lyrics are genuine, not forced, dipping his toes in the waters of worship with singalongs like "King of Glory," "There Is None Like You," and "You Say Come." Where he really shines, though, are the few glimpses of his instrumental prowess on "Never Give Up on Me" and "Walking Through the Fire." Perfect Day comes without major errors, but it was hard-pressed to live up to the hype of its predecessors and labelmates.
