This album was purchased with the sole purpose of recommendations of snippets from that great radio-free music of Pandora. I liked RJD2, and some of his music, so I decided to dive into a purchase. Caveat Emptor, buyer beware.
The music is moody, sort of like elevator music, all mood no substance. Just music to soothe, with soothing backbeats and moody music. The intro (my fave),'The Perfect Occasion' is a rousing song, reminiscent of The Art of Noise's "Beatbox", with that powerful bass line and booming backbeat, along with great synth horns. Alas, I was found wanting for good music, only to be bored and ticked off for spending $6 for my CD. The only bright spots, "In 3's", with fab vocals, humming to the music; "A Son's Cycle", and "Gypsy Caravan".
