iTunes Review

Five albums into a crusade to bring authentic soul music back to the people, some things had changed and others hadn't for Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings. One welcome addition here is the fuller implementation of female backup singers, who play the (other) Supremes to Jones’ Diana Ross on fresh material like the righteously dramatic “Retreat,” the Motown-ish “Making Up and Breaking Up," and the greasy, horn-driven “You’ll Be Lonely.” Jones' vocabulary for phrasing, texture, and dynamic range is mesmerizing; just listen to her on “Slow Down Love.”

A Fantastic Body of Work

...although I don't see how iTune's editor comes to compare the tracks to Diana Ross and the Supremes. "Making Up and Breaking Up" is stylistically akin to some of the Supremes' early 70's work - after Diana's departure. Sharon's vocal and the backing vocals styles are more reminiscent of Martha & the Vandellas or the Marvelettes, if Motown acts are to be referenced. Maybe even Kim Weston.

Sharon Jones & The Daptones Give It

It's as as if Sharon Jones and the Daptones got into a time machine and while traveling listened to a Stax Records marathon. I can't find anything bad to say about this album. The arrangements, instruments, backup singers, and Sharon Jones make this an amazing collection from beginning to end.

Sharon Jones is a National Treasure

By the sound of them, you would have thought Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings started making funk-threaded soul music together in the 1960s. Few devotedly retro acts were as convincing. Few singers as skilled as Sharon Jones at stuffing notes with ache and meaning would be willing to invest in a sound so fully occupied by the likes of Bettye LaVette and Tina Turner in the Ike years, too. But what Jones brought to the funkified table had legs of its own -- eight of them, to be exact -- and they belonged...
