XL Recordings' Richard Russell worked up one final album for Gil Scott-Heron, and now with Damon Albarn he's helping 68-year-old soul survivor Bobby Womack revitalize his voice for the 2012 crowd. Scott-Heron's voice can be heard for the "Stupid Introlude" that, as its title suggest, leads into "Stupid," a beat-enhanced piano ballad. Russell and Albarn keep their involvement in perspective, providing a safe haven for Womack to do what he does best and updating his sound to meet the expectations of modern ears. They may be plenty busy behind the scenes, but you never lose Womack in the crowd. The modest post-dubstep cabaret of "Dayglo Reflection" throws in Lana Del Rey for ambience and Womack's friend and inspiration, Sam Cooke, for a sense of history. Malian singer Fatoumata Diawara heats up "Nothin' Can Save Ya." The electro beats and backup vocals provide a springboard for Womack's lead vocals, which age has tempered but not ravaged, despite Womack's walks, jogs, and sprints on the wild side.
