Music Album Review: Derek Davis "Revolutionary Soul" (7/10)

Back in the late ‘80s Davis was frontman for heavy rockers Babylon A.D. He still has that rock feel, but goes for an old school
funk and R&B vibe on this spirited new venture. The robust and leathery-voiced Davis pens nine of the dozen songs here. His delivery recalls James Brown and Terence Trent Darby that is as much an homage as a reflection of his own vocal prowess. Tracks like “Rapture” and “Love and Abuse” just sizzle, and his cover of Bobby Womack’s “Woman’s Gotta Have It” displays serious soul cred. The production appears a little thin in spots, but his ample pipes and stellar songs shine center stage.
