    If your in to the genre then pick this one up, this album really is a perfect example of the best of it in my opinion. A very solid album all the way through, a rare achievement these days that goes on to my list of great albums.

    Gorgeous vocals, superb instrumentals.

    Bravo Alabama Shakes ;)

    The voice does it! Although the music is also well; without this voice it wouldn't be complete. Get the album as soon as you can and listen it every day!

    While the result doesn't justify the buildup, there is no doubt that frontwoman Brittany Howard is a major talent.

    [Boy & Girls] casts Brittany as a soulful singer, but the album is more Xerox copy than feel and spirit based. [May 2012, p.86]

    Their roots are just that--roots, not anchors, allowing the group to grow, often in unexpected and quietly thrilling ways.
