We gave it an A-

Busy year: Joseph Arthur’s signature ”In the Sun” was remade with Michael Stipe for a Katrina benefit EP and film doc. He also released a modern-primitive art book (We Almost Made It) and here launches his new indie label with a dark, Velvet-y set that reads as an adieu to a strung-out lover. With images of needles, blood, and pills, Nuclear Daydream‘s song cycle moves through each breakup station of the cross with shimmering guitars and Arthur’s ecstatically woozy falsetto, finally emerging with a sweet, if hard-won, hope. ‘
