‘Black Love’ is a wonderful collection of music from one of the most under-appreciated bands that spun around the 90s with less commercial airplay and success than they deserved. Throughout the album, there is the constant theme of salvation and finding a light at the end of the tunnel. It is no secret that Dulli is greatly influenced by Motown. Outstanding tracks are “Blame Etc.,” “Night By Candlelight,” “Bulletproof,” “Faded,” (an 8 minute opus that’ll damn near have you shedding a tear) and “Going To Town.” Once again, they used the talented cellist Barbara Connor which adds a richer texture to their music. Musically, the band is in top form and the funk/`70s R&B vibe sounds forced this time around, though still enjoyable.
