iTunes Review

The second full-length release from England’s Lucky Soul takes their version of ‘60s pop and puts it in full-mod gear, serving up a platter of tunes brimming with confidence and their own sense of musical history. A Coming of Age revisits ‘60s girl groups, folk-pop, and British Northern Soul, but adds a sprinkling of more contemporary sounds — like the Sundays and Saint Etienne — to the mix. Ali Howard’s voice is as strong and pure as Sandie Shaw’s and Petula Clark’s were back in the day (especially on “Upon Hilly Fields” and “Southern Melancholy”), and her bounce and energy recalls the Supremes and other classic, bee-hived divas on “Up In Flames “ and “Love3.” The swaggering, handclap-driven “Whoa Billy!” merges a ‘60s construct with a glittering ‘70s-disco shine, while the hugely catchy “White Russian Doll” blends classic girl-group trilling with a more modern-day guitar pop vibe. The title track admirably melds all these flavors into an embarrassment of dazzling, big screen-worthy riches.

woah lucky soul!

if the first 3 songs don't make you get up off your chair and dance, you must have accidentally turn off the speakers! these are great pop songs indeed. it's the only album i've been waiting for over the past two months.

The best band around...

I was so scared that A Coming Of Age would be a letdown after the perfect The Great Unwanted. Of couse, I was mistaken. I listen to this band more than any other, and for good reason. Their music is timeless, catchy, heartbreaking and uplifting. I can't wait to see what they come up wit next...

solid

It's a good record but it doesn't measure up to The Great Unwanted. It's lacking punch. Most of the songs are so mellow. I was left wanting more songs in the realm of "Struck Dumb" and "Lips Are Unhappy Without You." And I don't think anything can ever top "My Darling, Anything." Still love the band and the album. "Woah Billy!" is my favorite on this one.

Biography

Formed: 2004 in London, England

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '00s

The sugary, retro-minded sounds of Lucky Soul are created by Toby Fogell (bass), Ali Howard (vocals), Andrew Laidlaw (guitar), Ivor Sims (guitar), and Nathaniel L. Perkins (drums). The London-based quintet, which delivers a charming '50s-styled pop sound that's part Sandie Shaw and part Ronettes, formed in early 2005 upon the demise of Perkins and Laidlaw's original group. After adding Howard's candied vocals and the structured musicianship of Sims and Fogell, the Lucky Soul package was complete....
