5.0 out of 5 stars Best LP Since Lemonade. Maybe the Best GLASS Ever.
I'm still workin' my head around the possibility our boy Garrett might have just dropped his best album to date. GLASS fans know it'd be pretty hard to beat the first album, or the epic Lemonade, his heralded flashpoint of fat juicy blues hip hop fusion. Yet Sugar makes a convincing case for its own rank, what with Jimi Jazz's rightful return to the fold and a tasty mix...

3.0 out of 5 stars The good grooving sounds of Special Sauce are back on this ...
The good grooving sounds of Special Sauce are back on this album but it seems a bit noisy and overproduced. Not raw enough in the bluesy kind of way that made G. Love so great to begin with. I need to give it a little more time to see if it grows on me but at the moment I can only say that it is an improvement over recent albums but not great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best LP Since Lemonade. Maybe the Best GLASS Ever., April 25, 2014

I'm still workin' my head around the possibility our boy Garrett might have just dropped his best album to date. GLASS fans know it'd be pretty hard to beat the first album, or the epic Lemonade, his heralded flashpoint of fat juicy blues hip hop fusion. Yet Sugar makes a convincing case for its own rank, what with Jimi Jazz's rightful return to the fold and a tasty mix of old school harmonies and G's signature rhymes. After the somewhat less than stellar reception of his last album, Fixin' to Die, which possibly had a little more T Bone and Avett Brothers home cookin' than G's fan base tends to prefer, Sugar's got the gritty street hooks and smooth blues mixes GLASS fans have been clamoring for, myself included. All fourteen tracks on this record deliver, amazingly, from the funk deep end of Night Life, the sure-to-be-a-crowd-fave anthem Weekend Dance #2, the title track's energetic chorus, and the beautiful lonesome harmonies of Windshield Wipers. It's an instant classic. If you're new to G Love and the Special Sauce, this ain't a bad place to start. GLASS is in top shape and the world is better for it. Winner winner chicken dinner. Buy it. Turn it up.

One of the best G Love albums in a long time. I love that he's brought in Merry Clayton for backup vocals!
