If Patsy Cline and Al Green had a sweet, sweet love child who walked the hard road of life and love alone and came out of it pretty ok, that man has to be Amos Lee. Mission Bell gives a little bit of everything that Lee has to offer. Smooth vocals complimenting the folky instrumentation, with a full gospel-esque choir behind it all, pulling it together.
For anyone who has every cried alone in their car during a lunch break and then gave themselves a motivational talk worthy of Remember the Titans and pulled it all together with style.
A little bit of gospel, a little bit of soul, a little bit of Americana – this album is hard to nail down style wise but plucks at the perfect chord.
