I'd agree. Maybe a little safe, but gorgeous.
It's a lot more trad American soul than I'd normally buy and Ain't Nobody Worryin is still my fav album.
But Mr H's tremendous depth of voice just dragged me in there after a couple of plays. And the other musicians and the production are pretty spot on too.
Did he do the final recordings in Movember, considering that fine mo' he sporting there on the cover art?
(Although I could lose Track 11, which is pretty but a little too middle of the road. The keyboards sound a bit like spa muzik. That'll be a Skip then).
But they follow that up with a huge bass thump & a falsetto on Fine Again.
I defy you not to sing along...
