Pretty good!

Electric Americana at its finest!
Huge, soulful voice backed by honest lyrics and real musicians.
The Sun records vibe is heavy for sure and the songs definitely pay homage to that institution but tracks don't sounds dated the least bit.

One of my favorites! Bluesy vibe and pretty perfect.

Powerful, feisty & moody like Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix! This album was recognized with two NAACP Image Award nominations in 2016.

The first seven tracks on this album are fantastic but the remaining tracks after those are terrible. They don't even sound like they came from the same sessions as the first few. They sound like unfinished demos. But definitely pick this up for the first half or so because it's worth listening to. Just skip the last few songs.

Very disappointing sophomore effort from Alabama Shakes. Has only one or two tracks of interest out of twelve, with nothing that comes close to earlier efforts like "Always Alright" or "Hold On." Problem is weak material -- perhaps Miss Brittany was saving all her good stuff for her recent solo project...

For my taste the debut album was better. This one is a little monotonous to me.

A new world hangs outside the window
Beautiful and strange
It must be falling away
I must be
Sound and color with me for my mind
And it should show you where to go when I need to speak

Sound and color
With me in my mind
Sound and color
Try to keep yourself awake
Sound and color
This life ain't like a book
Sound and color
I wanna touch a human being
Sound and color
I loath to go back to sleep
Sound and color
Ain't life just down the street
Sound and color
You wish you're looking all the way
Sound and color
The more the feeling set to notice it
Sound and color
Life is
Sound and color
Love is
Sound and color
Love is
Sound and color
