MUSIC REVIEW OF THE DAY: SOULSTACK - FIVE FINGER DISCOUNT
There are several standout tracks; Friend covering the smooth ballad side, with rich and tasty chords and a blue-eyed soul vocal. Hangin' In The Kitchen brings the funk, Tom Bona's big drums driving a cool syncopated groove, sounding like the Tower Of Power rhythm section. Not The Only One sees Knight and Wessenger share the vocals on a big feel-good number, featuring rich organ and a Lowell George-worthy slide lead. Want You To Stay has some of the best chords since Al Green's heyday. Through it all, the playing is impeccable, a totally successful album.
