With young, British, soul stars like Amy Winehouse, Paolo Nutini, and Joss Stone crashing the American charts, what better time to celebrate the return of one of the original great blue-eyed soul singers, Simply Red's curly-mopped Mick Hucknall? Despite being dropped by its label in 2002, his band has flourished on its own, both artistically and commercially. Stay, Simply Red's third independent release, loses none of the crisp soul-jazz beauty that marked the group's late '80s heyday. It has a younger, fresher feel than 2003's elegant Home, but that does lead to more of a mixed bag. A pair of bite-the-hand-that-feeds protest tunes, "Money TV" and "The Death of the Cool," fall wide of the mark, but Hucknall makes up for it when he lets his shimmering voice rise above the electronic fanfare, delivering the classic love song "So Not Over You." Meanwhile, "They Don't Know" and the lively "Oh! What A Girl" prove that he can still give the new generation of soul singers a run for their money. --Aidin VaziriSee all Product Description

The first five songs on the album are love songs, but they are not all mushy and they have a respectable melody to them. Many people will probably be able to identify with the lyrics of `So Not Over You', whilst `The World and You Tonight' has a refreshing and catchy tune to it. `Oh! What a Girl' provides one of the albums funkier tracks and the soaring horns and the slight hint of innuendo make for a good combination. Possible future single `Stay' also has a catchy pop tune.
Hints of soul are included with `They Don't Know' and the blues infused, autobiographical `Good Times Have Done Me Wrong', has a raw sound that suits Mick very well. It also showcases three of the band's brightest stars - Kenji Suzuki on guitar, Ian Kirkham on saxophone and Dave Clayton on piano.Read more ›
It's a vibrant collection of songs that range from the slick soulfullness we've come to expect (`The World And You Tonight') to the wonderfully guitar-driven Ronnie Lane classic 'Debris' and the playful 'Oh What A Girl'. If I had to choose a highlight, it would be the irrepressible title track 'Stay'.
And all delivered, as always, by Mick Hucknall's incredible vocal - a voice that few other artists can hold a candle to.
So, to sum, an essential addition to your CD collection if you appreciate top quality production and songs you will never tire of.
The first half of the album is very romantic - the first song `The World And You Tonight' is a real light and breezy smoochy gem for the loved up. The first single `So Not Over You' is a pleasant ballad but my favorite is the title track `Stay'. It's a real funky dance floor anthem which transports me straight to the summer a lot like `Oh! What A Girl!' which is also a fabulous pop song with a real groove.
The second half gets a bit more funky/bluesy with `Good Times Have Done Me Wrong' and a brilliant cover of The Faces track `Debris'. Nearly every song on the album is strong on its own - well it's what we have come to expect from Simply Red.
It sounds great in the car and great on the stereo at work, I am waiting to go home so I can blast it out in the traffic and let everyone else hear it as well! If you are a fan you'll be pleasantly surprised and if you are not you may just find yourself humming along when you least expect it.
