Anderson East - Delilah, album review


Blue-eyed soul than transcends its adjectival descriptor, this is simply hot and sweet, sweet and hot to a T. Opener Only You mixes soul sass with 50s rock'n'roll, and third Find Em, Fool 'Em and Forget 'Em is three contractions to emphasise a a funkfest-cum-60s cop TV theme tune. Fourth Devil in Me is a fine example of the buffed gravel of the voice, and this, as with others, is pumped with horns and female vocal chorus backing. The first ballad is fifth All I'll Ever Need and it soothes sweetly, organ and chorus swooning appropriately in the background. Seventh What a Woman Wants to Hear has a little of the Ryan Adams about it. With Leon Bridges, proving a good time for retro-soul.
