    He delivers 10 killer tracks which, defined by horns, organ and a defying-the-years-vocal-hit from Bryant, span the spirited How Do I Get There? and commanding One Ain’t Enough to the compelling A Nickel And A Nail and swooning Something About You.

    Though rich with references to the past and drawing on the timeless Hi work of his mentor, Willie Mitchell, with Al Green, Don’t Give Up on Love feels improbably fresh, suggesting one of those outlandish Hollywood fantasies in which the hero gets a do-over of his life.

    Throughout, Bryant's vocal is rich and full on songs that are framed in exclamatory horns and soothing organ. [Jun 2017, p.92]
