Recensione album

The problem with neo-soul is that its advocates are quick to celebrate artists that capture the merest essence of the form — elements that are clearly reminiscent of Stevie, Curtis, Sly, Marvin, even Prince — without caring whether the songs themselves are all that memorable. Usually, what matters is the feel and the mannerisms, as evidenced by D'Angelo's praised, mannered second album. Even acclaimed artists like Alicia Keys are praised for what they could be as much as for what they are. This is the background that makes Remy Shand's debut album, The Way I Feel, such a surprise. By all accounts, Shand should not be a musician that gets it right — he's a clean, white, middle-class twentysomething, raised on records that were made well before his birth. Sometimes, this background is evident in the production, when he and co-executive producer Steve Warden rely on sounds that evoke classic early-'70s soul, or in Shand's slightly affected falsetto, but those are exceptions to the rule on The Way I Feel, because the album's foundation is built on classic songwriting — sturdy, tuneful songs that are deceptively simple in their structure but reveal their strength through repeated listens. They're winning upon the first listen, since they have a sweet, sultry feel delivered smoothly and assuredly, but so does most neo-soul — it's the repeated plays that reveal that the songs themselves are the most seductive thing about the album, not the lush, post-Philly soul production, or the fact that Remy Shand played nearly every instrument on this record. Yes, he's indebted to his idols, but no more than the Strokes are to theirs — and this is the romantic soul flip side of Is This It's invigorating slice of traditionalism, which means even if you've heard and loved music like this before, you'll soon be swayed by the sound, skill, and sheer joy of this debut, one of the very best of its kind.

Un ragazzino con grandissima classe x il Soul, ma 6 anni senza nuove uscite sono troppi.

Ascoltando questo album si evocano i grandi del soul da Marvin Gaye in giù, su, destra e sinistra. Veramente un'opera notevole, perfettamente attuale e godibile anche a distanza di tempo (comprai il cd appena uscito e lo ascolto sempre con piacere vero). Un solo appunto... E' mai possibile che non abbia più pubblkicato altro ? Il successo immediato potrebbe aver distrutto la vena creativa di questo (all'epoca) giovanissimo, ma noi speriamo di no. SAREBBE UN PECCATO !

A chi assomiglia ?

Lo so che qualche frettoloso cercherà di fare questo giochetto, ma prima ascoltatelo, anche perchè suona lui quasi tutti gli strumenti, e poi cercate di capire perchè un ragazzo di poco più di vent'anni ha un credito aperto nel mondo del soul...

Remy Shand emerged on to the neo-soul circuit in 2002 with The Way I Feel, a potent canon of songs inspired by classic Motown and Memphis soul. Primarily home-schooled in his native Vancouver, Shand began raiding his parents record collection at an early age — soaking up a wide range of jazz, soul, and R&B, with Marvin Gaye's classic Here, My Dear having a profound influence on his musical direction. Dropping out of high school to study and pursue music full-time, Shand played as a session...
