It's really that great. The singer is truly a poet of the soul, and she also happens to be quite the talented guitarist as well. The rest of the band is equally talented. This is the funky, rocky, soulful, psychedelic album that I'd say a lot of people have been wanting for a long time. Really fills a void in what is todays music. One note however. After you listen to this album, watch some of their videos and resist the temptation to do so beforehand.
Then, reconcile what you are hearing with what you are seeing. For me, it just upped the amazement I had for this band, as they look nothing like I pictured they would when I first heard them My friend told me to listen to a song by this band called "Alabama Shakes. It's not my preferred style of music, but I needed something new to listen to, and so I checked out the album. So glad I did. Some great little tunes here, and "Gimme All Your Love" has me convinced these guys should do the next James Bond theme song--something in the vein of those classic Shirley Bassey songs or the one Gladys Knight did for License to Kill.
I think they'd nail it. The Shakes' last recording was pretty impressive, and presumably very successful, as the many studio manipulations employed on "Sound and Color" surely made production expensive.
At the same time, this talented band cuts through the manipulations here and there, and midway on the album are 3 or 4 dynamite songs, a couple with faster tempo, that show the better side of the Shakes, I think. In fact, the second half of the record is better than the first half. Their last album "Boys and Girls" is pretty organic soul and blues influenced music with a unique Shakes twist, and hints of the 70s bluesy rock of Janis Joplin and Big Brother and the Holding Company.
I was really looking forward to this new issue, being a bit disappointed initially. But the essence of this core sound still comes through with patient listening.
I'd suggest cutting to track 6 a few times and listening through. But for my taste, production is far too heavy-handed in most of the first half, and is too remote from the organic core that makes the Shakes an exceptional group.
The last recording by the Black Keys is also heavy on the production effects to the point of obscuring their sound, but after much listening, I'd say it's outstanding. Presumably production capabilities have grown by leaps and bounds, as this seems to be a trend currently.
So, there's some good stuff on "Sounds and Color", and hopefully this daring jump into electronica helps them find more inspiration and helps refine a somewhat different identity that is still a showcase for their talent, and doesn't sublimate it in a blur of electronic loops and echoes. I feel no need to have all my favorite bands transition to music from outerspace.
Some of us just crave unique and powerful rock and roll, a sound that's Earth-born, and helps keep it turning. Vinyl shipped had marks on it. I love this album. It's one of the first vineuse I purchased once I got a record player. It was a sloppy cut. I had to use a pair of mini scissors to cut off excess plastic to even fit the vinyl on my record player. And as you can see on the second disc I don't know what happened, but there's three to four permanent stains on it.
White smudges and a mini black mark. I'm very disappointed in the quality of the vinyl. It plays perfectly. But I'm highly disappointed in this transaction. I was looking forward to the nice crisp clear vinyl like other people had mentioned..
And got sent one with marks all over. Definitely will never order an album onlne again. One person found this helpful. See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. Although this is certainly a great sounding album, in terms of songs, truly great compositions are still a little thin on the ground.
There are a couple of absolute corkers, though; the immensely powerful Gimme All Your Love is dramatic, utterly arresting and very probably the best thing Alabama Shakes have committed to record so far and Miss You is a gorgeous slice of quintessential slow-tempo soul that culminates in a furiously passionate ending. Those, for me, are the only two tracks that I'd consider to be exceptional and, oddly enough, the choice of lead single, Don't Wanna Fight, is probably one of the least lovable on the whole record, although I have to say that I find it difficult to listen to the unpleasant Gemini all the way through without feeling the need to skip.
It is a more rounded, more mature release that showcases the overall appeal of the band and, if the actual songwriting continues to develop and improve, still hints that Alabama Shakes may just have a world-conquering album in them Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote.
Please try again. Quite a departure from the debut LP, a good one at that. More on a soulful, funky road, the individual players' parts more accentuated, Britney's voice in fine '70s soul fettle, a band with confidence in themselves, each other and what they are achieving.
Iiked it on first hearing; now, a few listens along the line, I think it's a great, original, mature record. Thank you, Shakers!! It does need to be listened to Excellent CD. It does need to be listened to a few times but that is not unusual.
It is a very interesting mixture of cultural influences and well worth a listen. I do hope the band continue to make music that is not typical of so much insipid uninspiring music that seems to be available these days.
Great music! Great band! Unfortunately it's a below average recording, this might not matter to many, but to me it's essential in audiophile terms the pressing is complete RUBBISH , I would give no more than 1 star for this pressing, such a shame as the music deserves so much more.
Recipient very happy! Tracks you will play again and again. Refreshing to listen to. Load more international reviews. Not many groups produce a 'difficult' second album that's actually better than the first.
But somehow the sound has developed into something a bit darker, deeper. A winner. Wonderful voice and musicianship. I was put on to this group by my Dad and they're brilliant.

Alabama Shakes began recording their second album in late The group listened to anything and everything for influence, without regard for its public reception in the end. They spent over a year in the studio, with no clear end-goal, as they had not written any new songs due to their exhaustive touring schedule. Sound & Color is steeped in several different genres, touching on.

Alabama Shakes’ Sound & Color is the follow-up to the band's Gold-certified debut album, Boys & Girls, which earned the group three GRAMMY nominations, including a nod for Best New Artist/5(K). Often, Sound & Color takes flight when Alabama Shakes channel that energy into ever-shifting, liquid performances that almost feel like roots psychedelia, typified by "Future People" skipping off its tight Memphis groove with spooky harmonies and thudding derbattmogegefilykornorolsoftcat.xyzinfo: Ato Records. On their debut Boys & Girls, Alabama Shakes never hid that they were creatures of the New South -- a band with old-fashioned blues, soul, gospel, and country in their blood but raised on modern rock. On their follow-up, Sound & Color, they free themselves from the vestiges of the past, let loose, and push themselves further in either direction.8/ Sitemap Say Man - Bo Diddley - His Greatest Sides: Volume One (Vinyl, LP)
