John Ralston - Needle Bed

John Ralston's debut album on Vagrant Records took me awhile to get used to. I don't know if that's a good quality for an artist, but after a few months of listening to it on and off, I actually think it's a decent album. Like his label-mate Chris Carrabba/Dashboard Confessional, Ralston utilizes the acoustic guitar and the emo lyrics. His voice is more on the heavier side a la Elliott Smith. It's a decent album, not one of my favorites, but worthy of a download and a listen. Standout tracks: "Gone, Gone, Gone" and "When We were Cats." Rating: 7.5/10
