    Of course it’s going to sound good; of course it’s going to be passionate; of course it’s going to be emotional; of course, at times, it’s going to make the hair stand up on the back of your neck

  7. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    It's good enough that, while the album's playing, you forget that the music is essentially an imitation, artfully constructed in order to match Bradley's voice

  12. 7.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    t’s pretty uniformly vintage-soul stuff — barreling horns, wafting backing vocals, single guitar chords on the upbeat — but it never sounds antiquated

  13. 6.8 |   Pitchfork

    Bradley has a rare gift of being a singer worth hearing regardless of the material, and this alone is worth the price of admission
