The album opens with the Carole King-penned classic “Will You Love Me Tomorrow,” and their version is pure ear candy. It immediately breaks into the upbeat and fun “Runaround Sue” and the powerhouse “Under the Boardwalk.”
Equally mesmerizing is their take of Ben E. King’s “Stand by Me,” and it is followed by the rocking and infectious “Good Lovin’.” They showcase their ability to hit the high notes on the beautiful “Unchained Melody,” and they make them seem effortless.
It closes with their killer version of The Ronettes’ “Be My Baby” and on a soothing note with “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’.” Etta James would be smiling upon their crystalline rendition of “At Last,” where they maintain solid control over their vocals.
Overall, Human Nature has released a compelling new album with Jukebox: The Ultimate Playlist. It is filled with oldies but goodies, and their arrangements are distinct and refreshing. Their harmonies and falsettos are strong and memorable. Human Nature is able to prove that these classic hits will never go out of style. This latest studio offering from Human Nature garners an A rating.
Their new album is available on Amazon.
