As the second release on Simply Red's own label, Simplified finds the smooth soulsters reworking classics of their back catalog as well as introducing some new songs all in a stripped-down and stylish manner. Featuring such Simply Red classics as "Holding Back the Years" and "More," Simplified works well as a reintroduction to the band. And that's probably the main intention here. Although lead vocalist Mick Hucknall -- whose burnished vocals sound superb here -- and the band have largely kept a low profile since the early '90s, they haven't stopped touring and recording and as such have cultivated a devoted fanbase.

Although lead vocalist Mick Hucknall -- whose burnished vocals sound superb here -- and the band have largely kept a low profile since the early '90s, they haven't stopped touring and recording and as such have cultivated a devoted fanbase. One can only assume that the band has changed its sound over the years and felt the need to present its classic tracks in a fashion more representative of the band as it is now rather than when it debuted in 1985. The result is a lush but uncomplicated album featuring an organic mix of acoustic instruments including various pianos, organs, and horns that updates Simply Red's classic soul sound while still bringing to mind the best of their output.

    Simply supberb!

    Calm, soothing, inviting! Simply Red gets better and better with each album. They are far from "simply" anything. This album made me cry, smile and just want to play it over and over. Bravo Mick - you've done it again.

    Mick's Mature Voice Is Mellow

    SIMPLIFIED embraces the roots of our favorite songs. Now hear Mick's mature vocals. The arrangements are soft and soothing, the instrumentation is crisp and flowing. The single release PERFECT LOVE has a Latin flair that will get you dancing. SMILE and A SONG FOR YOU are favorites too.
