Review this album
Jul 2, 2014Alabama Shakes has crafted and incredibly rich and soulful album. The Blues and Classic Rock vibe gives the album a core. The vocal talents by Brittney Howard are to be commended, since the Janis Joplin like growls and undertones gives the loudest and softest lyrics unparalleled character. Highlights include the soft and rising "You Ain't Alone" that offers not only simple and hard hitting lyrics, but a good insight on the vocalist. As well as "I A'int the Same" that is a pulse pounding rock thriller.
All in all this is an incredibly well crafted and lively introduction into the rising rock stars that are Alabama Shakes.… Expand
