Leon Bridges

Album Review: Leon Bridges - Good Thing (9/10)

Bridges teams with contemporary pop producer Ricky Reed for this sophomore release, a collection that combines the modern elements of funk and alternative R&B with the raw emotions of classic soul, delta blues and gospel. “Bet Ain’t Worth The Hand” instantly pulls on the cathartic thoughts of the listeners with traditional Philadelphia soul, while “Lions” combines neo soul with a mild touch of computerized vocal modulation. Perhaps the best song on this album is funk anthem “You Don’t Know.” Good Thing by Leon Bridges displays his growth as an artist. It also clears the path for even more of his songful experimentation in the future.

Rating: 9/10
