"the full-length album contains a blast of band-performed, studio-enhanced, listener-friendly tunes that rock and roll, simmer and boil, entice and capture in a shimmer of contemporary American pop-rock that sits next to any national releases on the shelf or the radio"
““With soothing yet vibrant vocals, and melodic arrangements that are sure to be hummed in subway carts for ages to come, it’s not hard to see why Josh Catalano & The Dirty Thoughts are amongst the top in their class. Our first impression is identical to our current; amazing. Josh has a long career as a songwriter ahead of him, and his 'Dirty Thoughts' can only compliment what is already great. To not pay attention is a sin.” ”
“You know those times when you hear a song and you know right away that the artist has struck gold? That was exactly my first thought when I first heard Josh Catalano and the Dirty Thoughts’ “When We Were Young.” Springfield’s rich music culture has produced another amazing pop hit. Josh has successfully written a true radio hit without losing any independent rock vibes. This track has taken the standard of Springfield to the next notch.”
"It's this kind of beautiful drama that most songwriters would kill to be able to put together, and Catalano and company seem to do it with the greatest of ease."
“For Josh Catalano, the answer may be in the infinite stars above. From the long gone days of Mugshot and currently of the Damwell Betters and Lazer Dudes, the prolific songwriter and unabashed front man continues a songwriting spree that spans several albums of original material with CD number eight scheduled for an early summer release as Josh Catalano and the Dirty Thoughts. The sound is self-described as “ranging from foot stomping to slow burn, the music finds room to flex its muscles around the truly dirty themes.”
