Leon Bridges never set out to be a nostalgia act. Growing up in the ’90s, he was devoted to the R&B of Usher and Ginuwine and his earliest performances at open-mic nights in his native Fort Worth were of neo-soul songs sketched out over readymade beats. Though his debut album, 2015’s Coming Home, was a study of early ’60s soul music written at the altar of Sam Cooke, Bridges strives to be considered among his contemporaries as well as his forebears.
Contemporary soul singer Leon Bridges returns following a three-year hiatus with his highly-anticipated sophomore album, Good Thing. Bridges first stood out with his Grammy-nominated debut album, Coming Home, due to his intentional acknowledgement and remembrance of soul music in its glory age. That acknowledgement – paying ode to genre – continues on Good Thing, an album that minimally matches, though arguably exceeds his debut. Bet Ain’t Worth the Hand. Soul enthusiasts will feel like they returned to their heyday listening to Bet Ain’t Worth the Hand
Since releasing his 2015 debut ‘Coming Home’, Leon Bridges has found himself in an uncomfortable spot. His polished first work was perceived in some parts to be a simple, cynical re-styling of ’60s soul; a time warp harking back in particular to King of the genre, Sam Cooke. Others complained of the record’s lack of political stance, or its relatively inoffensive, impersonal subject matter. Bridges had to deal with these criticisms when in many other cases, a white artist with a retro slant – Rag’n’Bone Man, Paloma Faith, the long-lost Duffy – get off scot-free
