Jonathan Thulin "Science Fiction" by Brianne Bellomy (cmaddict.com) on 2015-02-24 11:13:36
Jonathan's new album has a slightly different feel to it from his last albums. For the majority of the songs you can feel a vibe similar to his group act, Press Play. The last few songs are more reminiscent of his older albums and the style we had come to expect from him. The messages in the lyrics have however stayed true to form.
Despite having that more pop like feel, Jonathan continues to show his strong vocal range and ability to pull you into each song. The guest performers (Manwell Reyes, Tauren Wells, Kevin Max, Shine Bright Baby, and Moriah Peters) add a dynamic richness to their respective songs and blend perfectly with Jonathan's vocal talents.
As this is a compilation of a different set of sounds than what we have come to know Jonathan for, it still is an overall good album. Although the entire album is not my cup of tea, there is something there for everyone. Those who want the more upbeat, get you dancing, type songs as well as the slower more thought provoking style will all be equally happy.
