Atlanta based artist, Terry Lane has recently released his new album Addiction, a smooth medley of songs influenced by his greatest music inspirations ranging from genres such as Jazz, R&B and hip hop.
At first listen the twelve tracks that make up Addiction seem a little of one note, but after a more thorough review, one finds that with this album, Lane is actually onto something real good. The soulful elements of his music are highlighted by a strange sensitive R&B sound, something that these days you don’t hear all that often.
I could also appreciate the diversity in this album. It’s well balanced with poppy hard-hitting numbers as well as chiller, laid-back beats. The song “Addiction” from which the album gets its name is by far the best track on the album, “She’s Bad” featuring 2 Pistols takes second, as it’s a nice contrast to the slower, smoother tracks that make up the majority of the album.
Addiction was released this Saturday, and is available for purchase on iTunes as well as CDBaby. The release of the twelve track album was also accompanied by the release of a DVD featuring new music videos for each of the album’s songs.
Boasting a repertoire of performances with artists including Charlie Boy, Rich Boy, Soulja Boy Plies and Trey Songz, Lane has mastered the art of swagger on stage. He brings a lot of boisterous energy to his work that translates to soul in his music. Overall I recommend Addiction for weekend listening. It’s the perfect playlist for a chill Saturday or Sunday night.
