Revolve by John Newman



John Newman

Play on Napster
Label: Universal-Island Records Ltd.
One of the nicest things about this Yorkshire dreamboat is his deference to elders, whether giving Idris Elba space to orate in the album’s opening moments or handing over crowd-pleasing moves to Gap Band frontman Charlie Wilson on the hi-NRG workout “Tiring Game.” In a quandary typical for so many Northern Soul adherents, Newman’s voice carries a wallop the material can’t always match. But there’s plenty of highlights here: the faux-exoticism of “Lights Down,” a funky snap atop “Come and Get It,” and all those punchy horns stacked to the rafters on disco overkill “All My Heart.”
