Iím Still in Love with You
Al Green
Review:
ďI'm Still in Love with You shares many surface similarities with its predecessor, Letís Stay Together; from Al Green and Willie Mitchellís distinctive, sexy style to the pacing and song selection. Despite those shared traits, Iím Still in Love with You distinguishes itself with its suave, romantic tone and its subtly ambitious choice of material.Ē STE

ďGreen began exploring country music with this album by performing a startling version of Kris Kristoffersonís For the Good Times, as well as a wonderful, slow reinterpretation of Roy Orbisonís Oh, Pretty WomanSTE

ďAnd the soul numbers are more complex than they would appear Ė listen to how the beat falls together at the beginning of Love and Happiness, or the sly melody of the title trackSTE

ďThere isnít a wasted track on Iím Still in Love with You, and in many ways it rivals its follow-up, Call Me, as Greenís masterpiece.Ē STE
