5.0 out of 5 stars Landing on The Album of 2012, 4 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Landing On A Hundred (Audio CD)
Cody Chestnutt's home produced 4 track 'Headphone Masterpiece' in 2002 generated a lot of interest when it was released in 2002 mainly following The Roots cover of the fantastic track "The seed".Well Cody has really smashed it with this album. The modern bass lines found here are enhanced by some truly soulful old school flavours. Shades of Marvin and Curtis prevail throughout.Having just witnessed his performance on the BBC Jools Hooland Live show I appreciate how tight this band really are.It would be hard to distinguish the TV performance from the album tracks they are that good. Cody has stayed close to his roots by providing political and social commentary on some of these tracks which used to be an integral part of the very soul of great soul music.This album puts music of black origin firmly back on track and I personally really love it. Buy this album. It may not only be the album of the year it may well prove to be the "What's Going On " of the 21st. century which I appreciate is an often overused cliché when used as a comparison for a soul/RnB album.It is also worth noting that this album was originally made available as a download with profits going to charity which to me is a soul man putting his money firmly where his mouth is. You should support the Chestnutt concept not only because it is refreshing in a materialistic, selfish world but also because the entire album is quality throughout which is a really nice bonus.
