Good Thing was met with generally positive reviews. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 74, based on 17 reviews.[9] Aggregator AnyDecentMusic? gave it 6.9 out of 10, based on their assessment of the critical consensus.[8] Album of the Year assessed the critical consensus as 71 out of 100, based on 18 reviews.[7]

Chris Willman of Variety gave the album a positive review stating, "The new album is not that drastically less of a classicist affair than Coming Home, when all is said and done, but this time it's a whole variety pack of retro."[20] Luke Fox of Exclaim! wrote: "Leon Bridges' sophomore record rings as an endorsement of his range. And that's a great thing for Good Thing, which tempers its pop-radio ambitions with unique bends on the age-old love song in this super-tight, 35-minute ride."[11] Tara Joshi of The Guardian said, "Bridges doesn't entirely leave behind his old-school roots, but, while Good Thing is hardly the next Blonde or, indeed, 24K Magic, it leaves you with a greater sense of who he is: loved-up, and striving for a level of ambition that feels within reach."[12] Reviewing the album for Pitchfork, Olivia Horn said that "On Good Thing, Bridges has kept his heart on his sleeve but updated his parlance to something a little less affected, a little more believable."[17] Joe Levy of Rolling Stone said, "Not everything works. "If It Feels Good (Then It Must Be)" and "You Don't Know" feel like fake Pharrell, which is some pretty thin plastic. But the closers—the skin-to-skin makeup sex ballad "Mrs." and the free-ranging autobiographical narrative "Georgia to Texas" (Bridges' second tribute to his mom in as many albums)—show how expansive and individual Bridges can be, even as he guns for the charts."[18]

In more mixed reviews, Slant Magazine's Zachary Hoskins stated: "The album falters when Bridges strays from his retro-soul wheelhouse."[19] Kitty Empire of The Observer said, "Certain sections of Bridges's audience are likely to define themselves against modern forms, so there is a risk here. But Bridges handles the transition deftly."[15] Kate Lismore of DIY commented that, "While he proves in spades that he's not merely a throwback artist who has to rely on nostalgia, the mishmash of sounds coming from the album does feel a little muddled at times."[21]

Leon Bridges (* 13. Juli 1989 in Atlanta, Georgia; eigentlich Todd Michael Bridges) ist ein US-amerikanischer Retro-Soul-Sänger aus Fort Worth.

Biografie

Geboren wurde Leon Bridges in Atlanta, nach der Trennung seiner Eltern verbrachte er aber den größten Teil seiner Jugend in Texas. Ursprünglich wollte er Tänzer werden, erst am College begann er, Gitarre zu spielen und zu komponieren. Anfänglich nannte er sich Lost Child und spielte Gospel und Neo-Soul im Stil von Usher und Ginuwine, bevor er sich dem Soul der 1960er Jahre von Sam Cooke und Otis Redding zuwandte. Bei einem seiner Auftritte entdeckten ihn Austin Jenkins und Justin Block von White Denim und machten mit ihm ein paar Probeaufnahmen. Im Oktober 2014 veröffentlichte er den Song Coming Home über die Plattform Gorilla vs. Bear. Das Lied bekam viel Zuspruch und wurde von den Radiostationen ins Programm aufgenommen. Mehrere Labels bewarben sich um ihn und Columbia Records bekam Ende 2014 den Zuschlag.[3]

Es begann die Produktion seines Debütalbums, im März 2015 trat er bei South by Southwest auf und wurde von der Presse hochgelobt.[4] Des Weiteren trat er im Fernsehen auf und ging mit der Band auf Tour.[5] Das nach der Single Coming Home benannte Album erschien weltweit im Juni und nahm Platz 1 der US-R&B-Charts ein. In den offiziellen Charts der USA sowie in Kanada, Großbritannien und Australien kam es in die Top Ten. Auch in Deutschland und der Schweiz konnte es sich in den Charts platzieren. Außerdem wurde es für einen Grammy Award für das beste R&B-Album nominiert.
