EDITORS’ NOTES

Michael Kiwanuka’s stunning second LP proves he’s an artist with something to say. Love & Hate is a timely and timeless set of slow-burning soul that recalls Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers, and Curtis Mayfield. Produced by Danger Mouse, it sounds of the past and present all at once—as it does in the string-embossed swing of “Black Man in a White World.”

This is a stunning well produced all the way thru complete masterpiece. The past does meet the present and moves us forward beautifully. It will definitely grow on one with repeated listening.

The Decade's Greatest Soul Album

If you're wanting to hear something like Kiwanuka's folk/singer-songwriter debut album, you won't find much of it here. But no, this is not the masterful artist being driven by the corporate clowns, this is the artist doing exactly what he wants to do. And it's freaking brilliant.

Michael Kiwanuka's Love & Hate

A performance so powerful and the timing couldn't be better. It will take you back to the 1960's with Bill Wither's like soul, feeling, emotion and a message that is so important. Having said all of that, this is truly just a fantastic album and Michael Kiwanuka is a very talented artist.
