It really is a bummer that all the talentless bimbo$ like Ke$ha can have number one records, while someone so incredibly talented, unique, and freakin awesome as Sharon Jones can't have a hit record. She has a powerhouse voice, great songs, and the Dap Kings are amazing. I just don't get it. Why don't more people appreciate good music. like this. sigh
The best funk and soul this side of the 70's.
Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings aren't doing anything new. That said, they're doing it right. Perfectly tight little 60's arrangements collide with the burning, ice-cool funk that made soul fun in the 70's.
"I Learned the Hard Way," "Money," "I'll Still Be True," and "Mama Don't Like My Man" are all exceptional.
The new album is incredibly good. 4 stars only because it isn't a full-on masterpiece.
What Amy Hints At, Sharon Fulfills
I love the wave of neo-retro soul that has poured through the last few years, from artists such as Amy Winehouse, Alicia Keys, Duffy, and Adele. Sharon Jones has the vocal chops and the emotive power that shines as the real thing, rendering those other acts "suggestions" of what authentic soul sounds like. The comparison is especially strong because Sharon's Dap Kings backed Amy Winehouse on "Back in Black," and as much as I loved that album, Amy does not come out well in the comparison.
This album came to my attention when Entertainment Weekly said of it, "This isn't just old school... it IS school." I agree, and in an era when producers are willing to Auto-Tune any vocal until you hear more computer than artist, this is a welcome return to reality.
A few iTune reviewers have puzzled over perceived faults in the mix. Sharon Jones' own site says, "Produced by Bosco Mann and recorded in its entirety on an old Ampex eight-track tape machine by Gabriel Roth in Daptone Records’ House of Soul studios." So that sound you are not quite used to is the sound of humans making music without computers. Ah, bliss....
