Anderson East – Only You

East

““Baby I’m burning/yearning inside,” are the first words you hear, sung in East’s distinctive honey whiskeyed voice. And for the next 30 minutes he proves it. From easy rolling ballads such as the sultry “What a Woman Wants to Hear” to full blown Stax styled horn enhanced burners like the first single “Satisfy Me,” East digs into this material with sweat soaked conviction. As befits his rugged singing, the songs are romantic in nature. That allows him to beg, plead and testify with gospel styled faith and sincerity against a slightly retro, rootsy R&B that never feels musty or derivative.” [Written by Hal Horowitz]
