Album Review Will Joseph Cook - Every Single Thing3 Stars
A distillation of all at the core of what Will Joseph Cook is about.
No stranger to the fine line between mellow and melancholy, Will Joseph Cook has spent his time so far swinging between effervescent pop bops and ethereal, moody moments, without diluting either side of the coin. “All the books I don’t read lay in my room / Jealous of attention I give to you,” he sings to begin ‘Little Miss’ before launching into a Beauty and the Beast-esque personification of all the stuff in his room missing the song’s addressee that’s equal parts smart, cute, and entertaining. He still swoons in the more reflective moments; the vulnerable soar of ‘4am’, or the quietly confessional ‘Today It’s Raining’, which reads like a diary entry. He does get a little too saccharine on occasion - ‘Gummy’ declaring “She looks just like a gummy bear” - but on the whole ‘Every Single Thing’ is a distillation of all at the core of what Will Joseph Cook is about.
