Amos Lee

This is going to be a quick review. This type of music isn’t my specialty, but I believe it should be in my blog. Lee has an enchanting voice that is brilliant in so many ways. You’ll find yourself humming when to his songs when you’re not even listening to it. The way he sings is hard for me to describe. But his song writing is beyond talented. His sound is sort of a Norah Jones meets Damien Rice thing, with a touch of Jack Johnson and a pinch of Frank Sinatra...except black. This album is great to chill out with, but it has better uses than that. If you really want to use it to its maximum potential, you use it for its pimpablity. It can be used driving to dinner on a first date, played during a romantic meal, or slow danced to at a wedding. This album has class and sophistication, and the best part is that it’s not that old, sappy, lackluster shit that usually is usually found in that category. The piano is mixed perfectly with the acoustic guitar to keep your interested the whole way through. This is a modern album with a classic twist that is sure to make boys feel like men and have your women swoon. Strongly Recommended.
