This is the kind of contemporary soul album that fans hope to find. It is soul as we think of it originally rather than beating beat driven R&B, over the top wailing or house music with a vocal. The sound is made of real instruments and subtle electronic elements, it sounds natural, almost live. It's an intimate album, great on headphones or speakers. The songs are strong with the singer's warm vocal. It has touches of 1970s sophisticated soul with analogue vintage synth type sounds, electric pianos and a range of styles from ballads, southern soul to a few more uptempo songs. An absolutely delightful album.
