This is an often dark but always beautiful album. Released in 2002, it's been one of my favorites for more than twenty years. At the time of posting this review, two copies are available. I recommend previewing a few of my favorite tracks ("Honey and the Moon," "Dear Lord," "September Baby" and "You've Been Loved") and then ordering. It's difficult to even choose standout songs. Redemption's Son is a very consistent and cohesive album that flows well. I haven't listened to all of Joseph Arthur's albums (possibly a 2024 resolution), but of the ones I have, this is my favorite. Our Shadows Will Remain, which followed two years later, is also excellent.

Heartbreaking Revelation

"When I heard a review of this album on NPR a few months ago, I had to pull over to the side of the road and listen. I'd never heard of Joseph Arthur before, but the strength of his lyrics (what little I heard) made me wonder who he was and where I could find his work. I bought "Some to Where I'm From" and "Redemption's Son" at the same time and am now driving my coworkers crazy with it. I'm not usually the kind of person who slavers over an artist, but I now recommend those two albums to anyone I know who've lost love, faith, or perspective and think about how to get any of those things back. "Honey and the Moon" as well as "Exhausted" spoke to me on a visceral level and "Dear Lord" has converted a few of my friends to Joseph Arthur's introspective style and occasionally creepy imagery."

"For those that know Joseph Arthur, this is easily his best album to date..for those that don't let me put it this way. They just don't make albums like this much anymore. A journey of beauty and tension and poetry. He is a master of the art with few equals. I'd trade half my record collection for this one album."
