ALBUM REVIEW: William Bell Keeps Soul Chops Sharp on ‘One Day Closer to Home’

Henry Carrigan POSTED ON APRIL 13, 2023

"The swampy blues of the title track chugs along with the yearning feeling of being so close to being up after having been down so long; it’s a haunting song. Bell’s raw and emotional “When I Stop Loving You,” which he co-wrote with Larry Campbell, conveys the ache of what happens the moment love dies (“my heart will beat no more”).

Every song on One Day Closer to Home is a winner, and Bell’s silky vocals define soul. Bell inhabits a song deeply and delivers it with emotional tenderness and fire. It’s a treat to have a new album from the master." READ FULL REVIEW
