Amoeba Review

10/29/2012

Landing on a Hundred is as soulful an album as Cody ChesnuTT has released, embracing gospel-rock in opener “Till I Met Thee.” But the dynamic ChesnuTT remains ever-flexible on Landing on a Hundred, as well, taking his vintage guitar (and country-size ego) across Africa on “I’ve Been Life.” But ChesnuTT’s personality is part of what makes his music so distinctive. “I used to smoke crack back in the day,” ChesnuTT starts on “Everybody’s Brother,” in which he recounts his mistakes and triumphs before declaring “there’s no turning back.” He pulls off singing of love beyond the superficial on the sort of cheesy “Love is More Than a Wedding Day,” and a couple of tracks, “Under the Spell of the Handout” and the especially funky “Where is All the Money Going,” ask tricky political questions you don’t see coming from ChesnuTT. The detail and edge he offers musically and lyrically across Landing on a Hundred lift the proceedings beyond typical soul, achieving the sort of transcendence he sings of on that first track.
