Though using the tools, hooks, and formulas taken from the likes of Marvin Gaye and Sam Cooke, Leon Bridges sounds in no way like he’s stepping out of the mid 60’s. It’s just that without feeling calculated, he’s updated the infectious danceable jukebox beat that inspired so many of us, so many years ago ... and he does it all without the fear of embarrassment, without embellishment, staying true to a genre that was laid down those many years ago, yet allowing his music to sound fresh for today’s ears, and right in fashion for today’s listeners, with songs that are solid and emotionally true.

Leon Bridges has mastered the art of story telling, laying those stories within infectious grooves, and doesn’t mind dancing to them, stepping with one hip toward the audience and finger popping in a beat meets jive manner that will hold your attention from the first note to the very last. Bridges has mastered the entire package, and the album is certainly more effective due to his use of vintage guitars and equipment, aided by lazy offhanded drums and a dynamic, though limited, horn arrangement, creating an R&B sound that strains with anticipation ... inspiring me to send him a note, asking him to please cover “Take Me To The River,” on his next album.
