This is one of my favourite albums of all time.
The production by the Dust Brothers (Beastie Boys Pauls Boutique, Beck Odelay) is uncluttered but very tasteful. It is mostly sample based with the occasional Drum Machine or Bass played by Flea (Red Hot Chilli Peppers) and vocals by N'Dea Davenport (Brand New Heavies), but all the songs parts fit so well, it could have been created from scratch. Tones vocals glide smoothly over top and no, he's not trying to change the world, but he brings humour and a relaxed feel to the strong production.
The album did take me a couple of listens when I first got it in 1990 but the more I listened the more I liked it.
It has a distinctive groove and is very easy to listen to.
