"His long-awaited sophomore album, In Plain Sight, proves to be one of the year’s best releases, with the singer/songwriter’s unique musical genre-blend inarguably addictive. In his own words, his sound is eclectic: “Soul, R&B, funk, rock, disco, psychedelia, classical: All of those in a mix. I usually tell people it’s rock ‘n roll. Glide funk.”
A mesmerizing performer, he’s having such a good time, you almost overlook he’s a virtuoso on the keys. In Plain Sightis Neal’s way of inviting you to the party—and it’s one you definitely won’t want to miss. There’s a nostalgia to the layers of sounds, mixed with a definite newness. Be ready to play the shit out of it." - SPIN MAGAZINE
