By John Southworth
It's not often that a pop record is created where each track tells its own cheery tale, but John Southworth has succeed in creating a record that puts a big smile on your face.
The twelve tracks have a real fairytale theme that could easily have been written by Roald Dahl. But if you think that's childish, then you'll be missing the point. The whole mood of the album is so calming that you'll just want to close your eyes and float through the stories that are being told.
It might take a couple of listens to the fully appreciate John Southworth's fifth album, but it's well worth it. 'Yosemite' is a unique pop album that makes you think about all the good in the world.
