15 Songs, 46 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Leon Bridges’ retro-soul debut is so impressively dead-on you might wonder where he parked his time machine. Channeling the buttoned-up charm of Sam Cooke and the mellower side of Otis Redding (as well as contemporary throwbacks like Raphael Saadiq), Coming Home captures a moment in the early '60s where gospel met blues and blossomed into doo-wop and soul. It was the period-perfect title track that helped Bridges gain an audience beyond his Texas hometown, but the swaying dedication to his mother, “Lisa Sawyer,” is every bit as lovely.

What a pleasant surprise!

Leon Bridges is one in a billion, Coming Home is one of the best albums I’ve heard in years. Now I can’t wait to hear these additional tracks! He’s brought back style of music that should never be forgotten and made it his own and he’s restored my faith in today’s music industry

A cheesy move

It's a great record, but re releasing it 8 months later with 5 new songs is a cheesy move..
