Stunning. Heard Jungle on Jools and immediately bought the album. There is not an iffy track on the whole album; I like them all very much. But for me, the best track is "Julia". Forget your standard plastic synth sounds, these people know how to de-tune oscillators and produce rich, warm deep sounds in a way I haven't heard since the Thomson Twins' Joe Leeway. And the chords.... lovely ethereal chords to delight ear and soul. Well done, Jungle!

Heard the band play on Jools Holland, like some other reviewers here, and was hooked. That evening I found myself playing with my iPad to find other tracks from the album, and the band's website had some great videos to go along with the tracks, which reminded me of a funky modern dance version of the Bee Gees combined with Curtis Mayfield. The CD is now a permanent fixture in my car, and no duff tracks in here, with my favourites being Time and Too Busy Earnin'

Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

I had heard a couple of tracks from Jungle before the album was released and they left me wanting to hear more. At the time I was a bit lost with my current music selection and needed something to fill the void, this album was perfect for that. Refreshing and different, Jungle really do have an amazing album and I would highly recommended purchasing.

Funk, though which genre, I am not particularly sure. Not that that matters - Jungle offer a resoundingly fresh take from a band with attitude. A debut album is a tough venture - the band's stamp has to be clear and yet it can't be too repetitive. While there's certainly a clear theme running through these tracks, each is sufficiently distinctive that their breadth as performers is very apparent and I'm sure that their future has been guaranteed if they wish to cultivate it.

Personally, I wouldn't call this Dance Funk, as one reviewer suggests (though Crumbler does have that potential). The lyrics are less dominant than the music and, frankly, could evolve a little more complexity but, at least, we're spared the pointlessly explicit of the 90s+, a good indication that this is a band firmly rooted in contemporary society and new social norms, even if its musical cadence is a little earlier.

They feel to me to be redefining the genre - lacking the distortions of Afrika Bambaataa, avoiding the geekiness of Kraftwerk, dropping the bass beat of Herbie Hancock and the Headhunters, and the cacophony that was Miles Davis and musique concrete. But you can't define a genre by the absence of other features - or can you? Is this stripped down funk, stripped down to real music?

Whatever, they are going places and taking a world with them - grab a piece of future history!
