Hozier – Hozier

Basically a white person singing in an African-American style, much like Adele et al.  There is some catchy guitar on “Jackie and Wilson,” for example, but mostly this album seeks to simply appropriate riffs, vocal tones, and other musical elements that have been built up by others rather than forge anything new or unique.  Pass.
