Album Review
Mr. Bones
Reviewed 2022-03-11 
After a bangup 2020 solo disk, And It's Still Alright, NR reunites with the Night Sweats for a killer 3rd release. The foundation for it is their trademark high octane, neo-soul, cum jam-band style that does their great Stax label proud. From this he branches out experimenting with reggae and jazz using Dylan-esque lyrics & elocution. Thematically it finds him questioning his future, having recently gone through a painful divorce and the loss of his mentor & producer Tom Swift. Hats of to the 'Sweats band that amps it up to the brink of chaos when rocking out and takes it down real low & soulful when he croons.

RIYL: The Black Pumas

(slow, 5:26)**

6 Baby I Got Your Number - jazzy acoustic guitar, congas, sweet horns & a bit of skat (slow, 3:32)**

8 I'm On Your Side - NR belts it out full tilt with killer horns behind him (fast, 3:20)
9 So Put Out - dark tale sounding of a bitter breakup (med, 3:02)
10 Oh, I - slow, acoustic reggae-influenced arrangement let his vocals shine here (slow, 3:29)***
11 Love Don't - classic high energy NR belting it out with band running on nitro covering this Motown classic (fast, 5:09)***
