Jake Bugg – On My One
Belated review of my Father’s Day gift. On his third full length, the same soulful acoustic Dylanisms and intriguing, strong songwriting are still here. An artist must grow, and a couple of tracks are drum machine pop r&b, even a hip hop-like track. It may alienate fans of earlier works, but some never want anything to change. These are just natural extensions of his sound, an exploration mission. Bugg remains a fascinating, unapologetic artist growing stronger as he goes. Fully recommended.
