I didn't get it. Here was a young man in 2012, singing like he belonged in the 'oldies' section of my CD collection. I thought, 'i'll keep an ear out for him', and proceeded to answer the questions being asked of me by my assignment...
... but I couldn't get it out of my head. I couldn't remember any of the words, and I could only remember but half his name; Google did the rest. Still not having heard anything from him apart from the brief snippet caught by my half inclined ear during that sleepy Saturday morning in Darwin, I found out that his album was being released soon.
Long story short, I acquired the damn thing.
I am a musician. I am a musicologist (among other things). I am a tough man to please when it comes to 'new' talent. But after one listening, this album went straight onto the ipod, the iphone, the USB stick in the car, and the 'spare' mp3 player... IMMEDIATELY.
It's not the most amazing thing you'll ever hear. It's not going to rock the music world to its foundations; especially not the industry as it is today. For instance, he doesn't promise to get undressed, drunk, arrested; surprisingly, he doesn't offer to undress anyone else. He doesn't pee on anyone, and he doesn't defame the male or female gender claiming that all men or women are a$$holes. He doesn't even get all ragamuffin on anyone's behind - it is a really under the radar thing he's done here. He's almost come out saying, 'i don't care if this doesn't make me a millionaire - here it is anyway!Read more ›
The quality of the LP is noticeably inferior. It is a flimsy record that came warped right out of the sleeve. Even the sound quality is poor. Instead of the warm glow of classic R&B, this sounds like nothing but a scratchy mess. Seriously, did this come off the back of a cereal box?
Great album! Definitely four, if not five stars. It should be perfect on vinyl. Due to inferior manufacturing, it's not. The quality of the vinyl itself is less than one star. I give it three stars simply because it is such a nice recording. Don't even bother with this one on wax.

Great Album from a great artist. I'm glad I caught the last half of Austin City Limits featuring Kiwanuka.Published 3 months ago by Sean B.
Let me be clear - the music is fantastic! I love this album. The LP, however, arrived warped, and it is unbearable to listen to.Published 3 months ago by Danielle Gerrior

I love Michael Kiwanuka's sound. I can't wait for his next album! If you're into soul and blues, definitely don't miss this album!Published 8 months ago by C. Kitch
