I think I've replayed the album a bajillion times now.
Love Like That rightfully getting a push.
The Initial Talk remix is really good. It reminds me of Janet's That's the way love goes.
Great album! It's definitely one of those albums you can listen to from top to bottom without skipping a track. Even the intro is amazing, my favorite since the intro to Amerie's Because I Love It album.
Hmm, the Initial Talk remix is good, I enjoy that mix of In Your Heaven as well.
Anything Initial Talk touches turns to solid gold.
This is a surprisingly good album. I didn't even know it was coming, just came across it.
We’re now in September and I’m still listening to this from start to finish and it’s still my AOTY.
Although now tied with What’s Your Pleasure.
Where is the Vinyl Samantha?
I used to be a really big fan of Sam's. In fact, when he toured his debut album, the show I saw remains among my favourite live going experiences ever. "Return to Paradise" remains excellent, even knowing what headspace he was in at the time. Sometimes great art is being created in moments of great pain.
His one-off singles and EPs in between were all of varying degrees of quality, though I have a soft spot for the "Pink Cloud" EP.
Now I finally found a moment to listen to his new record. It is so good, I am stunned. Exactly the type of very early 90's soulful R&B infused danceable Pop that's been my thing for years now. Even the intros, interludes (the vaporwave beginning sequeing into the real thing on "Your Vibe", chef's kiss). Wow, never expected for him to come back so brilliantly. It's a real "Ray of Light" turnaround. No outer circumstances can keep such talent and passion for music down.
Now, a Coldcut/Pettibone inspired accompanying Remix Album would make this perfect.
I kind of feel like Covid buried this album though, but maybe I am being overly dramatic here. It just did not cross my radar at all.
So, where can I buy the CD?
I can't get over how incredible this album is?
It's been slept on so hard, it's one of the best albums released this year.
A couple of weeks ago he said that he will release a deluxe edition of Boombox Eternal, I guess this is the first tease.
Deluxe Edition OUT this Friday!
But still no vinyl release.
Brilliant! Can’t wait for it
2022 is not what I had in mind for an album that’s already a year old. But I’ll take what I can get.
It's a serve.
Welp, I'm late AF but "Melody of Us" came up on a Daily Mix & now the entire album is lodged in my brain.
