iTunes Review

Entering with a James Brown-inspired shriek, singer Brittany Howard is front and center on the group’s second album, Sound & Color, which channels Bobby Womack, Curtis Mayfield, and funky ’70s soul-jazz. While any Alabama Shakes record will live and die by Howard's emotion-packed pipes, this one brings a broader palette to the band's sound. From the smooth-soul vibes and strings of the title track and the snap-tight funk of "Don't Wanna Fight" to the barnstorming blues-rock of "Dunes," the band broadens its horizons while staying true to its soul-rock roots.

Customer Reviews

New to the group

I was scared kept seeing the album cover in iTunes Store and just decide to listen to the snippets and I just love the lyrical content of each song and looking forward to what they have to offer in the near future.

Lyrics and sounds

I just opened and lisented to the whole album, and I am completely speechless. The growth and maturity in lyrics, music, sounds, all around performance is fantastic. Future People, Dunes, This feeling all have a sounds that we had been missing in the music industry for far too long. Real lyrics, real feeling, real music, real instruments. I am very excited for the future of Alabama Shakes and cannot wait to see what people think of the whole record. Way to out do yourself Brittany, Heath, Zac, Steve and incredible Keys by Ben Tanner. 2 thumbs up with Sound and Color!!

The band released an eponymous debut EP in September 2011, with plans to record a full-length album later in the year....
