Binky Womack

Womack Style

Review by Gary Hill

Binky Womack might have lived in the shadow of his more famous uncle Bobby, but he's not lacking in the talent department at all. This album shows off a lot of that classic soul sound blended with more modern rock Binky Womack plays a mean guitar, and it really gets to shine here. I'd say that in a lot of ways, the man shares a lot of musical territory with Prince. You can't argue with that pedigree, the Womack family business delivered with some Prince sensibility.

Track by Track Review
Sunday Morning

This is part rock music and part old school soul. I like the guitar sound on this, but in some ways this feels a bit over-produced. Still, it's a solid tune.

Just Enough
Built on a slow soul meets pop music groove, this is tasty stuff.
Nobody Loves Me Like You
Here we get a slow moving soul grind that's just so classic in sound and motif. It's such a great tune.
Me And My Guitar
As you might expect, there is some cool guitar built into this thing. It's one part classic soul and one part guitar based alternative rock. It's all class.
Malibu Nights
This is a classy, smooth soul number. It has a lot of jazz in the mix. It's slow and just so sultry.
Love Addict
Bobby Womack is heard on backing vocals here. Snoop Dogg is also featured on this thing. The cut is another killer soul journey. I dig the rap on this cut.
Must Be Nice
There is no big change here, but instead this is a classic sounding piece of soul music. I like the blend of vocals and the various layers of them that are all over this thing.
When You're Wrong
This is more of a rocker. It's a nice change and a good tune. it's just plain fun. There is some great funk in the mix here, too.
Here Womack covers John Mayer. In a lot of ways this really makes me think of Prince. It's a cool slow rocker with some great guitar work.
I'm In Love
I really like this rocker. It's a lot more modern in texture. It's another that makes me think of Prince quite a bit. Sure, there is still some classic soul in the mix, but this is newer in texture and delivery.
Love Is
This is a much harder rocking song. The guitars go to eleven on this. It's part Lenny Kravitz and part Prince.
Put Something Down On It
Wow! This is almost heavy metal. It pounds out with screaming guitar and is just so cool. Again, I think of Lenny Kravitz here, but this is much harder edged than that. This is a great way to end things in style.
