Exceptional follow up to his 2015 debut ‘Coming Home’, Leon Bridges has developed his style over the past three years and the retro-heavy throwback sound of the first album has been replaced with a more contemporary feel that is still steeped in classic soul. The modern-meets-vintage opener is a heartfelt ballad that reminds of the earlier set but the deep, warm 4/4 groove of ‘Bad Bad News’ quickly shows us that he’s stepping out of the past with a funky vibe laced with some bubbling jazz guitar licks. ‘Shy’ is a wonderful, organic mid tempo foot tapper while ‘Beyond’ is perhaps the track of the album – a sublime ballad with a southern lilt that shines the focus Leon’s emotive vocals . ‘Forgive You’ delves even deeper into the present while the pick of the uptempo tracks comes in the form of the superb, angular boogie of ‘If It Feels Good (It Must Be)’ and the dancefloor banger ‘You Don’t Know’. ‘Mrs’ is as close to a Prince ballad as you can get while ‘Georgia To Texas’ turns back to the past again but still retains that current feel. Essential album.
