    He's the finest true soul voice of his generation.

    Victim of Love showcases growth--and a sound not heard before on Daptone--while not straying from the gritty soul that established the singer; it is every bit as strong as its predecessor and more diverse.

    Victim of Love may only be Charles Bradley’s second album but it marks another remarkable footstep in the life of its creator.

    Victim of Love is meant to be taken literally; it's a rare and continued opportunity for a sexagenarian to finally get his chance in the soulful sun. Something the album proves that he's both appreciative of and not taking lightly.

    Bradley and his band are such great interpreters and expanders of the soul tradition that you don’t mind the nagging feeling that you’ve heard these cuts before.

    This is living, breathing music that avoids the trap of comfy nostalgia. [Jun 2013, p.94]

    Victim of Love is ultimately a less successful record than No Time for Dreaming. For one, Bradley seems less connected with this set.
