4.0 out of 5 stars Jake Bugg......a young Elvis?, 2 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Shangri La (Audio CD)
After a debut album which turned out to be consistently good, without bordering on the exceptional (apart from 'Broken'), could young Jake produce the goods just 13 months later for his second outing.

13 months? Yes, and that is just too short a time to craft, hone and record a studio album of consistence.

There are three exceptional tracks however. 'Slumville Sunrise' and 'What Doesn't Kill You', which offer a fast paced alternative which is where Jake excels. And at the opposite end 'A Song About Love' is pure beauty, although we may have been spoilt by the superior live acoustic rendition on 'Later With Jools Holland' which is probably THE stand out acoustic track of 2013. If you haven't seen it on YouTube then you surely must, with tissues in hand.

With 'Me and You' and 'Kingpin' being the only other tracks which hold your attention, half the album is then of average note.

I presume Jake must have written a large array of songs in his youth to reveal a second album so quickly, I only hope he is given the time and space by EMI to produce a third album which deserves to contain songs primed on his current and future experiences and feelings, which can only benefit any sequel.

A rare talent, and Britains' finest singer/songwriter. Global 'ala Elvis' domination awaits.......given time.
