Sparking the revival of the Swing generation, BBVD have been a band that have remained consistant in the quality of the albums that they release, and Save My Soul is no exception. With their usual fast paced style, wonderful vocals, and interesting variety of sound, I'd reccommend BBVD to anyone - even if you're not into swing music!!! Anything produced by this band is guaranteed to leave you feeling either chilled or ready to take on the world! Makes for perfect driving music when stuck for ages in traffic too!
Compared to the other albums, Save My Soul has a more serious feel to it, and the music pace is somewhat slower, but it still manages to retain the same sound that BBVD is famous for. It even contains two parts of a song as the starting and ending tracks! I'd give anything by this band a listen!
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy are fantastic and this album is no exception. If you ask a lot of people what they think of swing music they'd probably say they didn't like it just as an automatic answer but one listen to BBVD and I'm certain a lot of people would change their mind. There are plenty of great new songs on this album, the ones that stand out to me are "You Know You Wrong" and "Save My Soul" which, tempo-wise, are at opposite ends of the scale. I'd recommend this album to fans of the band and people who are curious, it'll have to tapping your feet, clicking your fingers and dancing round the room. Let's hope we see plenty more from BBVD in the future.
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy are an awesome band and have shown on their previous albums that they can really bring out the best in swing. There muscial talent is amazing, throw in their ability to make catchy tunes and youve got a great band. Compared to their previous albums i think this one is slightly lacking, there isnt as much of the get up and boogie that the others had... however saying that this album still shines with excellence and should be a purcahse for any swing fans and a definet for BBVD fans....
This is a great album, very well produced and expertly crafted. The songs are extremely catchy even by the Daddys usual standards especially "You know you wrong" and "Oh Yeah". A few less swinging belters like on previous albums but they've gone for some moodier themes including the title track "Save my soul" which has a dark N'Orleans feel to it. If you like swing you'll like this album, if you like the Daddys you NEED this album! Go Daddy-o!
