DEBUT SOLO LP 'SWEET ESCAPE'
NICK CORBIN – SWEET ESCAPE - ALBUM REVIEW 10/06/20
A true musical and lyrical masterpiece – The soul of Nick Corbin laid bare over beautifully polished funk soul and modern groove – the album of the summer. 10/10
Nick Corbin gives us his debut solo album after departing from the hugely successful New Street Adventure and what an album it is! A wonderfully penned soulful masterclass that moves up and down the tempo scale as skilfully as only a master musician knows how taking influences from Nick’s own love of 60’s soul and funk and mixing it with modern polished musical practices he has been able to deliver a stand-alone album that will undoubtedly stand the test of time. An album filled with fantastic catchy numbers Nick has been able to do what other musicians struggle to achieve, sing about sometimes difficult subjects that leave you humming for the rest of the day as the album is layered with positive vibes and incredible production values.
The lead track Sweetest escape gives us an insight into Nick’s depth of soulful tonal range which continues throughout the album with one stand out performance after the other, notably with Long Long Gone, Gotta get back to you and Can’t say goodbye, you would be forgiven if you were musically transported to a northern soul dancefloor with a delightful modern twist. A particular current favourite is the beautiful written Never did look like love, but that could easily change the more the album is played as even the downtempo offerings are classily produced with horns, funk, and even choirs at times.
Nick’s step into a bright new future has bought us an album worthy of anyone’s collection. All in all this is 11 track masterpiece deserves the praise it is receiving from the music press, and if like us you are a fan of the soul/funk modern sound with a 60’s twist, buy it, we can guarantee you’ll be playing this all over the summer……..
