5.0 out of 5 stars Great follow up. 29 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This was the first FLC album I bought and it won't be the last. I got it a while ago after seeing a live set of theirs and hearing songs like scooby snacks and love unlimited. I bought this expecting a full on rock album because that's basically what they did live on mtv. They played King Of New York and Southside, enough said. I was completely suprised by how laid back this album was. They sound like a lounge band. They are utterly brilliant. I prefer this to the slightly heavier first album. My favourite tracks on this are We Are All Very Worried About You and Love Unlimited. Every track is a classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Diverse 31 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Well what can i say about this album,I'll start with as Paul Whitehouse would say BRILLIANT!.The reason for this is because it is so varied and cool and different and great and superb and terrific and tremendous and 'schmoove'.The album ranges from quiet and seductive (Love Unlimited)to funny and quirky (Mini Bar Blues).My personal favourite on the album is Southside though Up On The Hill comes a very close second.When I say the album is diverse it is but not as diverse as Come Find Yourself.Come Find Yourself has catchier tunes and is more mainstream yet 100% Colombian is cooler and more laidback.In fact the FLC are so varied musically that I couldn't really tell you what there like Southside is quite aggressive at times and very rock,Love Unlimited is mellow and cool,The secret 14th song is catchy, thats all I can say about it. So all in all this is one seriously catchy and fun album.So dim the lights light a cigar have a Martini and prepare for some serious FLC "schmooveness'.

5.0 out of 5 stars This a record to sit back and chill too... 2 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Vinyl
this is one of my favourite albums. The criminals paint a very vivid picture filled with stories of crime and exitement but also of fun and livin' the good life. It varies from the laid back, jazzy nature of tracks like love unlimited and sugar to the blues rock of Up On The Hill and the all out rocxk of Korean Bodega. It certainly lives up2 the legacy of the amazing first album. Classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars A personal favourite 25 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
Although a personal favourite, this album is extremely frustrating. Reason being, if it wasn't for the poor tracks, Huey and co. would have a good argument for this being hailed as one of the best albums of the 1990's.
When they're good, they're very good. 'Up On The Hill' is an outstanding track. Not only does it create a nostalgic picture of the streets of New York, it does so to a soundtrack so smooth it defies belief. The bass works as a team with the slow drums to make a sound so laid back it could make the worlds politicians kick back and light up a joint.
'Love Unlimited', 'Sugar' 'We're All Very Worried About You' 'The View Belongs To Everyone' 'Back On The Block' all maintain the same laid back style and all to the same impressive effect. The humorous nature of the lyrics and carefree nonchalance of the music disguise the fact that the group are a lot more talented than they first appear. There is an interesting use of diverse instruments to very good effect; it takes accomplished musicians to create the jazzy sound FLC have.
There are one or two poor tracks however, namely '10th Street' and the terrible 'Southside', where the jazz is substituted for a heavy rock sound, and ends up looking out of place and clumsy, and spoils the mood of the album.
Another criticism would be, that within all the smooth jazzy ensembles, there is a distinct lack of marketable songs; there aren't any potential singles, which I think could have made this album one of the greats of the decade, rather than a cult favourite.
A great album, nonetheless, it makes superb chill out music, and if you're a fan of modern jazz, a good addition to your collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smooth, mellow, melt in the mouth music 8 Jan 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm glad we don't have to share these guys with America, cause to mainstream them would be to ruin them. If this album had a flavour, it would be cream. Because of it's rich, relaxing rythyms, and mellow melodys it's perfect for those evenings when u just want to sit back, curl up, and enjoy the sweetness of "SUGAR"." LOVE UNLIMITED," is a really mature and focussed song, and it certainly goes well with a box of chocolates and a glass of Baileys, to really gett in that loved up mood.
"MINI BAR BLUES", this is thoughtful, and remnisent of Manhattan influenced, 40's bars.
I highly recomend this album and their previous album's. DOLCE,SIMPATICO,PROFONDO,PENSIEROSO,ET FAR FURORE, if only Huey was Sicilian, but I still like him.

Following the huge success of Come Find Yourself I was appalled to find how badly the FLC dropped. Moody,slow and dull ballads seem to be stifiling the band's true potential. Read more
