Mar 21, 2019His distinctive songwriting style remains, yet it’s the addition of piano, beats, sax and electronic production that gives 'Gratitude' a production sheen most fans may not be expecting. It’s also what lends a progressive edge to the record that takes time to soak in, but ultimately rewards.
Apr 15, 2019The difference with third album Gratitude is that it comes after the singer, who had been battling substance addiction for some time, checked himself into rehab and got clean. The result is an album of redemption, one that soars, both musically and thematically, away from those dark days towards a brighter, lighter future.
Mar 15, 2019Overall, this album isn’t bad, it’s very easy to listen to and it’s quite likeable with some beautiful moments. However, it doesn’t bring with it the life-altering, head-over-heels feeling that I’ve had before with previous BFL albums. Perhaps my expectations are too high but it would be great to see a bit more grit and energy for the next release.
Mar 15, 2019While there are moments on this album where Benjamin Francis Leftwich's positivity is genuinely very nice to hear, all in all Gratitude is musically beige and lyrically clichéd. Leftwich would be better to stick to what he does best: playing his acoustic guitar and singing about 1904.
