  1. gives it a: 5/5

    Ten tracks of timeless, effortless, beautiful soul. Kiwanuka’s deftly restrained, Withers-esque timbre is a welcome contrast to the resurgence of big-lunged, shout-singing, power-soul men (Charles Bradley, Lee Fields, et al). There’s also a folk element in play that sets the effort apart. In all, one of 2012’s best so far.
