4.5 superbDoublez38 | November 16th 19

This new Michael Kiwanuka album is very close to Titanic Rising by Weyes Blood, especially in the retro spirit (although it's Soulful), but also because without revolutionizing the music they both have fantastically perfect albums released. So it's true, Kiwanuka is a little less brilliant than Titanic Rising, but it's a great pleasure to listen to him and relaunch him again. In addition to being a great musician, he is a singer who speaks with his heart, and who shows great humanism. This ease, to introduce the pieces through interludes but also this ability to sequence the perfect transitions where we notice that Kiwanuka is a great work. There's a lot of that, but I also insist on the beauty of the songs that are present or everything in its place here. Moreover, to go even further in the retro spirit, we really have the impression that the production is authentic, greyish, and stifling as it was then, and especially as it could have been released at the time

3.5 greatclassic gemini | November 1st 19

nah, that was pretty cool and lavish, i digged. Better than his 2016 album. even if it's an exercise in nostalgia-wanking it's still better than having another neo-soul/rnb frank ocean worship piece.
