Our Shadows Will Remain (2004)

EW's GRADE
A

Details Release Date: Oct 12, 2004; Lead Performance: Joseph Arthur

With his razor-shredded voice and love of murky sonic textures, Joseph Arthur always sounds as if he's groping his way out of the dark. But as heard on Our Shadows Will Remain, an especially forceful and cohesive album, no one fumbles about better. On beautifully dank songs like ''Wasted'' or ''Can't Exist,'' Arthur never fails to find his way to the light — and, in the process, lay waste to just about every coy male singer-songwriter in his path.
