Jake Bugg Shangri La album review PDF Print E-mail
Written by Sam Lightle

ImageNineteen years old and already with two albums to his name, and he had every right to have the chance of a second album after such a successful debut album. Bugg managed to express his own version of blues and folk music in a number of ways while taking the music world by storm during 2013. 
However, with this new album Bugg's continuing development has some what stuttered for the time being as large for large parts it feels like a take two of his self titled debut album.

Following a rollacoster year that has put Bugg into the limelight of chart music across the world, feelings of sadness can't help but creep in when listening to this as it seems Bugg didn't want his ride to stop, so has decided to rush this second album.

Despite that the album holds some catchy tunes, most notably Slumville Sunrise which harbours a simple riff similar to mod bands of the 60s like The Kinks. Another single off the album is What Doesn't Kill You which touches into some new found areas for Bugg, taking away from his much proclaimed blues and more into indie rock.

Shangri La signals Bugg's genius with a guitar at only 19. This album gives Bugg some new tracks to work with going forward which could produce a mouth-watering third album.
