St. Paul & The Broken Bones - Sea of Noise, album review

Soul Sanctified

This is a super-sweet soul album, authentically so, and is graced by the glorious voice of Paul Janeway. The beauty and range of that vocal is exemplified in the first two tracks, the opening Crumbling Light Posts Pt 1 which is 90 seconds of a rising falsetto with matching chorus and orchestration, followed by second Flow With It [You Got Me Feeling Like] with a gritty and funky core, the horns in full support, and authentic again down to the parenthetical Soul-song title. Production is tight. Think Otis and Al. Sanctify is the actual Soul-song consecration.
