Singer Lizz Wright delivers more of the organic, cross-genre-pollinating pop she perfected on 2008's Orchard with 2010's Fellowship. A soulful presence on record, Wright has a warm, passionate voice that fits well with her bent toward the contemporary gospel, neo-soul, and atmospheric folk-inflected jazz tracks presented here. Joining Wright once again are bandmembers pianist Glenn Patscha and guitarist Oren Bloedow as well as bassist Nick D'Amato and others. Also featured are African vocalist Ang?¦lique Kidjo, who appears on two brief but affecting numbers including the dreamy "All the Seeds," and bassist/vocalist Me'Shell Ndeg?¦ocello, who provides the funky and bluesy title track. Elsewhere, Wright brings to mind the spiritual and expansive style of Nina Simone on the uplifting "I Remember, I Believe" and gives fellow iconoclast k.d. lang a run for her crossover pop money on the torchy ballad "Feed the Light."

- Matt Collar (All Music Guide)


On her fourth album, Lizz Wright returns to her gospel roots after writing her own material on 2008's The Orchard. Typically, however, this is hardly a traditional collection of faith-based songs. Wright does include a medley of old spirituals including "Up Above My Head," and she closes the proceedings with "Amazing Grace." But her idea of gospel is highly eclectic, also encompassing the Gladys Knight & the Pips hit "I've Got to Use My Imagination" and Jimi Hendrix's "In from the Storm," neither of which seem particularly religious, as well as Eric Clapton's "Presence of the Lord." Wright also draws material from a clutch of black female contemporaries and influences including Me'Shell Ndegeocello, Bernice Johnson Reagon, Joan Wasser, and Angelique Kidjo as she ranges from neo-soul to African-styled folk-rock music. The disparate sources are united by Wright's distinctive and powerful alto voice, which anchors the music and provides a stylistic through-line, no matter what the nominal genre. This is an unusually somber type of gospel, as Wright favors moodiness over fervor in her statements of faith. That is especially true at the end, when she presents "Amazing Grace" in an ambient, funereal mood. Listeners should expect to be moved by these performances, but not to be cheered.
