iTunes Review

While the U.K. pushed homeboy Jake Bugg to the top of its charts in 2012, in the U.S. a few fans of Bugg’s vintage-flavored, Dylan-meets-skiffle rock ’n’ roll took the young Jake to their collective bosom, impressed with his playing skills and passion. Bugg’s Dylanesque tones both hurt and helped him. For Album No. 2, American producer Rick Rubin took the singer/songwriter under his wing (or, to be exact, to his Shangri La studio in Malibu) and showed the kid how to fatten his sound up with guitars that plug in and rave up: combining his vintage aesthetic with more contemporary wrappings. Bugg also collaborates again with Snow Patrol’s Iain Archer and sophisticated pop auteur Brendan Benson. Shangri La feels more grown up and more rounded; where Bugg’s first album had some truly killer songs, Shangri La offers a few just as strong. There's the pugnacious fit “Slumville Sunrise,” the punky “What Doesn’t Kill You,” the summery lament “Me and You,” and the catchy and radio-friendly “Messed Up Kids.” A handful of tracks demand more time to plumb their depths, like the roadhouse rager “Kingpin” and the brokenhearted “Pine Trees.”

Love it!

Great job!

Sharing a Gift...

Now that I've heard the entire album, I'm really startled about how much I love listening to pretty much everything Jake has done so far. That's pretty amazing, considering how many genres he taps into on this collection of songs (and on his first album, "Jake Bugg", as well). From the rootsy jangle of "Messed Up Kids" to the intimacy of "Pine Trees", I find the writing, the guitar work, the singing, and the production on this album to be totally engrossing. I feel that Jake is sharing a gift with all of us, and I know he'll be a major part of the soundtrack of the rest of my life. I really miss the digital booklet with lyrics, instrument and writing credits, etc., that came with Jake's first album!

Love Jake but this album...

I love Jake Bugg, I feel head over heals with his first album and with him. I listened to this one and the songs are great but they're a bit harder, not all the same soft folksy songs of the last album. But overall if your more into the rocker songs this album is great. Great job Jake, keep up the hard work...I could never do this!

Biography

Born: February 28, 1994 in Nottingham, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '10s

Raised on a steady diet of the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, and the brothers Gallagher, English singer/songwriter Jake Bugg blends the melodious, working-class swagger of the La's and the primal, bluesy simplicity of the White Stripes with the wry, weathered romanticism of Jens Lekman. Born in Nottingham, Bugg picked up the guitar at the age of 12, and within a year he was composing his own songs. Disinterested in the hip-hop and grime that dominated the listening habits of his peers, he turned...
