Well, i’m very pleased to present this new review about Jamiroquai.
The way has finished finally. Let’s see if Jamiroquai can surprise us with this disc.
Track 1: Rock Dust Light Star
Well, this song has a good intro. Good beats and a good sample and makes me remind the old jamiroquai style back in the earlier discs. This is a good start.
Track 2: White Knuckle Ride
Ok, very good synths. This song goes up with the minutes, and goes better and better! A very disco style reaching the electro style. I repeat and repeat this song, i recommend this song. Very good the disc until now, seems like Jamiroquai is back!
Track 3: Smooke and mirrors
This song has a great into bass line and vocals. The acid jazz style of jamiroquai is back??? Yes, is the jazz style, reminds me of his song Scam and Talullah for the Saxo before the end of the song. Very smooth and kinda sexy too. Great song.
Track 4: All the good in the hood
A very hard bass line right in the beginning. This song is fresh and funny, has the funky style of Jamiroquai. I can distinguish a influence of one of the songs of Queen in the basslines too. Very good.
Track 5: Hurtin’
A very sexy song. Rock and Jazz influences in here, very soft vocals from Jay Kay and the mid speed tempo makes this song perfect for when you’re in the mood to listen a not too heavy rock.
Track 6: Blue Skies
A romantic song with a good bass line, vocals and synths. I listened a very good violin and guitar verse too. This song has the style of Talullah, and the lyrics talks about a broken love and the feel that you have when you’re over it. Very good. Til now the disc is very impressive
Track 7: Lifeline
Violonchelos, trumpets and piano, what else can we ask for a good funky jazz song??? this is a very fresh song, and the lyrics are good too. Seems like the voice of Jay is back again.
Track 8: She’s a Fast persuader
Ok, the intro synths are strange but then it goes to a fast guitar sample. I felt like a was traveling in time or something like that. The vocals are smooth, and in general the song has the style of his Space Cowboy song. It has a Saxo solo too that later is mixed with the synths, wich creates an incredible feeling. But what? just before the end switches to jazz and then the volume decreases until it disappears. Good
Track 9: Two Completely Different Things
A very funky jazz song. Good saxo, piano, bass line, vocals and trumpets and flute!!!. Reminds me of Seven Days in sunny June song. The tempo isn’t too fast or to slow. A perfect song for drink a glass of wine hahaha.
Track 10: Goodbye to my Dancer
This song is strange in a good way. Has a little influence of reggae in it, perfect combination of softness with the synthesized piano and the guitar. A Very relaxing song.
Track 11: Never gonna be another
A very smooth song, more relaxing that goodbye to my dancer. The tempo is more slower here too. The lyrics talks about a girl who has no comparison with others but that now isn’t with him , is a love song. Good.
Track 12: Hey Floyd
Let’s check the last track of the album. It starts with congas, then goes progressive with a hard piano and then the style break and switch to a reggae style for a minutes. It’s a new style of Jamiroquai and is good. Then switch again to the jazz style 🙂 very impressive switch of styles in one song.
This disc is very impressive, can make you dance, relax… i don’t have words to describe this disc. I give 5/5. Strongly recommended.
