Leon Bridges | Good Thing
According to Sonya Alexander: “Old soul Leon Bridges hit the scene in 2015 with his debut album Coming Home, which embraced a powerful neo-Motown sound. His latest release Good Thing has more of a modern R&B flavor, with his velvety voice navigating the urbane landscapes of contemporary soul, occasionally veering off into throwback territory.
Good Thing is a sophomore effort that shows Bridges exploring the caverns of his vocal and songwriting talents. The songs are a symphony of raw soul, distilled with a hint of pop and gospel. While some may miss that ‘50s/’60s soul sound that his initial musical outing had, Bridges' is just flexing his talent here, illustrating that when you have the goods, no need to stay boxed into one category. A good thing is a good thing.”
