MEET THE HU­MANS

Q (UK) - - 50 Albums Of The Year -

The Back­story: After two cap­ti­vat­ing solo al­bums, Ma­son en­lists El­bow’s Craig Pot­ter for a sump­tu­ous and eu­phoric third, mu­sic to mir­ror a man who has over­come his demons. The Clincher: His best solo record, Ma­son’s mix of ju­bi­lant grooves and melan­cholic re­flec­tion hasn’t been so per­fectly bal­anced since his Beta Band days. What They Say: “I have the emo­tional in­tel­li­gence of an 80- year-old man on his death bed, but the ev­ery­thing else of a 25- year-old.” Key Track: Words In My Head.
