EDITORS’ NOTES

With the rollicking, retro-tinged rock ’n’ roll of their debut, Alabama Shakes injected a righteous dose of guitar-driven jams into the musical landscape of the ’10s. Led by Brittany Howard’s gritty howl—her turn on the soulful stunner “I Ain’t the Same” is a punch straight to the gut—Boys & Girls shows the power of keeping things simple. The head-nodding groove of “Hold On” delivers a summery, hypnotizing haze, while the slinky guitar and bright piano bounce of “Hang Loose” inspire deep chill vibes.

Simply the best.

There is no album I like more in this world. The songs themselves, the order they are in, the sound of them as a collective. There's nothing I don't love about this album. I really really feel when I listen to it, and you can't put a rating on that, but it's beautiful.

Solid Introduction to the World

This album is a strong collection of alternative rock with huge southern roots and one of the greatest living vocalists working in the business today (Brittany Howard).
