After taking the world by storm in 2011 with his debut album “No Time For Dreaming” , Charles Bradley aka “The Screaming Eagle of Soul” come back with “Victim of Love”.
Produced by Thomas “TNT” Brenneck and under the legendary Daptone Records label, “Victim of Love” is a everything you expect from Bradley. Screams, loud horn sections, prime cut soul tracks and heavy bass lines are essential ingredients in this new release.
“Victim of Love” is probably 2013′s greatest soul record, tracks like “Strictly Reserved For You”, “You Put The Flame On It”, “Love Bug Blues”, “Where Do We Go From Here” and “Hurricane” show a man of 64 years old capable of producing soul shaking tracks and instant classics.
Backed by the Menahan Street Band, “Victim of Love” has a unique sound with a mellow 70′s vibe that is already Daptones trademark.
Charles Bradley passed his second album test, and now we know that everything that comes from this man will warm our souls and rock our bodies! Long live king Charles!
