It was written, performed, cut, and mixed with great care, and as such delivers Arthur's creative vision with abundant emotional power.


The Ballad of Boogie Christ remains a very good Joseph Arthur record, but it lacks the immediate virtues of his greatest albums. It’s a worthy addition to his discography, but likely not to go down in the upper tier of his best recordings.
