Leon Bridges – Coming Home
This album captures the best of what makes great soul music. Bridges’ vocals are pure 60s soul, the music is straight out of that same glorious period, complete with backing vocals, even recorded with that vintage sound (imagine the vinyl!).
It’s a time machine, zapping us back to a time when this musical style was new. But even then, this isn’t slavish homage, an approximation, or an updating of the sound. This is pure, straight-on, beautiful soul.
