Landing On A Hundred
Label: Universal Music Division Polydor
Where has Cody ChesnuTT been? The guitarist who was once primed to be the next great soul artist tells us that he has been saved by the Lord, and swaps the raunchy funk 'n' blues of 2002's The Headphone Masterpiece for redemptive throwback soul. "I used to smoke crack back in the day ... now I'm teaching kids in Sunday school," he sings on "Everybody's Brother." His spiritual growth leads him to regret his past, and he tells his son "Don't Follow Me," while mourning American narcissism on "What Kind of Cool (Will We Think of Next)." Through it all, his honesty is his saving grace.
