The follow up to the acclaimed CrossCut debut, I’m Gonna Be Ready, Don’t Give Up On Me easily dispels the difficult second album syndrome. Filled with funky blues and soul such as Made For Me and the eponymous title track this album gets better with each listen. Josh is no mean guitar player and this is highlighted on the slow blues of The Middle and the Clapton-esque I’ve Always Been Good. The horn fuelled Letting You Go and Carry Me Through are standouts but the highlight is the closing track, That Ain’t Love, with its fuzzed vocal and tight guitar.
