'Take Me To The Alley' Reviews

We currently know 5 reviews for "Take Me To The Alley" by Gregory Porter. The album received pretty solid reviews among the critics and is one of the better ones this year.

"If there’s nothing on Take Me to the Alley to scare away Porter’s existing audience, it still sounds less like music made for a mass market than that of a man who happened to have found one while following his own path."

80 % The Guardian
"Again Porter delivers passion and craft in abundance, owing to the songwriting, the acoustic-jazz arrangements (by producer Kamau Kenyatta and pianist Chip Crawford), and his corduroy-warm baritone, pliant and powerful."

80 % Boston Globe
"It may be resolutely old-fashioned and, for sure, we’ve heard it all before, but the sheer pleasure in Porter’s singing is all but impossible to resist."

80 % The Telegraph (UK)
"Throughout the album, which the singer produced with Kamau Kenyatta, Porter matches these cozy sentiments with modest, small-scale arrangements--mostly keys, bass and drums--that sound shaped more by the gigs he's played over the last three years than by any desire to experiment in the studio. But Porter’s resting state is a compelling one."

80 % Los Angeles Times
"If there's a knock against Take Me to the Alley, it's that it feels a bit long. Editing out two or three tunes would have heightened its impact. That Porter doesn't break new ground here isn't a big deal; he doesn't need to."
