This is a great album by Al Green. Everything all clicks. At times, it does remind you of his '70s hits like Let's Stay Together, I'm Still In Love With You and Love and Happiness, but it sounds very current and contemporary, avoiding retro relapse. The live band, horns and musicians sound superb on every song. And Al still sings with soul and his falsetto is still sharp on here. Liked the guest appearances of John Legend, Anthony Hamilton and Corrine Bailey Rae, but they smartly step back and let Al take the lead in the songs. This album will be talked about 20 to 30 years from now too, because the artistry and musicianship is just superb on this album.
