EDITORS’ NOTES

Like a true Southern gentleman, Anthony Hamilton embraces his heritage by celebrating romance from a more refined era. His classy, beat-assisted twist on vintage R&B makes this as much a love letter to Curtis Mayfield as it is to all the "Sista Big Bones" he admires. Songs like “Southern Stuff” complement soft, syrupy '70s soul with lines about opening doors for women and walking them home. Elsewhere, as on the title track, Hamilton tackles societal ills like gun violence with urgency and sensitivity, singing soberly over muted funk guitar.
