Bridges sophomore album, Good Thing (Columbia), is his way of changing the narrative.And Forgive You could quickly establish him as a pop star. With help from Justin Tranter, the go-to collaborator for everyone from Selena Gomez to 5 Seconds of Summer, Bridges taps into his inner Bruno Mars more classic Grenade, than 80s-obsessed Finesse to create a simple, sweet midtempo love song.Bridges, however, doesnt want to trade one cultural box for another. On Good Thing, he doesnt stick with one style for very long, resulting in a jumble of styles only held together by his warm, powerful voice.He is still most effective in retro-soul, moving from a gorgeous Smokey Robinson-esque falsetto to a Marvin Gaye-like full voice with Daptone trimmings in Bet Aint Worth the Hand. And the wrenching closer Georgia to Texas, with its jazzy saxophone and drum fills, shows how much stronger Bridges lyric writing has gotten since his debut.Where things get a little dodgy is when Bridges stretches into the club. He sounds like hes rushing to keep up with the disco groove on If It Feels Good, Then It Must Be and the Ooh baby, ahh baby chorus of the Daft Punky You Dont Know just feels forced.
