iTunes Review

Leon Bridges’ retro-soul debut is so impressively dead-on you might wonder where he parked his time machine. Channeling the buttoned-up charm of Sam Cooke and the mellower side of Otis Redding (as well as contemporary throwbacks like Raphael Saadiq), Coming Home captures a moment in the early '60s when gospel met blues and blossomed into soul. It was the period-perfect title track that helped Bridges gain an audience beyond his Texas hometown, but the swaying dedication to his mother, “Lisa Sawyer,” is every bit as lovely.

Customer Reviews

Great music

From track 1 to 10, this is a soothing album. I recommend Leon Bridges to anyone.

Great Music!

Love to hear this “old” sound again.

Sam Cooke not so much. Nowhere near as much vocal proficiency nor is there as much soul. When this music was actually new, it had a sense of urgency and discovery and Sam Cooke was on fire. Simply playing the chords, copying the style and laying on some so-so lyrics isn't enough, although it’s a nice try. Give Sam Cooke or Wilson Picket or Otis Redding a listen. There is no comparison.
