4.0 out of 5 stars More good work from Al Green, 11 Nov 2008
This review is from: Lay It Down (Audio CD)
An improvement over "I Can't Stop" and "Everything's OK". Excellent collaborations. Still not quite as good as his work in the 1970s (is Al Green the top male soul singer ever ?). Recommended to old and new fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Al + young guns = marriage made in soul heaven!, 5 Jun 2008

This is superb . It starts brilliantly and ,incredibly, the quality never dips afterwards . If you like old-school soul , you're gonna love this . I just hope he tours this extensively in the UK - it's so strong , it deserves a live outing . Proper horns , proper strings , proper soul .

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 30 May 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lay It Down (Audio CD)
Not often do I write reviews either.. Always seems a bit pointless really.. I mean when do people usually feel compelled to write a review when they feel indifferent about a record? So invariably and I'm no different to most, I'm writing because I L-O-V-E this disc from Al Green! It's pure classic Soul with the songs sounding both fresh but at the same time like standards you've grown up with..

The reason I've given it four stars is because on first listening the energy drops for a track or two in the middle but as I say, I've only heard it once and will probably regret this judgment after another couple of hearings..

The thing I really want to say is, trust me, this is a great record.. you just won't hear about it too much in the uk media etc.. not that that's a bad thing.. the thing is though.. if stevie wonder came back with this.. or michael jackson for that matter.. the press would fall over themseleves to praise and push it to high heaven as if it were the greatest album ever!

It isn't, but if you like your soul or al green then it's not far short.. highlights for me are Just for Me, I'm wild about u and Stand N the rain..
