I listened to this record in full during the course of my journey to and from work yesterday. It's quite rare that I turn up to work with a smile on my face (I'm not a morning person) but yesterday was different. Similarly, sat in traffic on the way home, not a trace of frustration. I try all types of music during my commute, in an attempt to elicit a smile, and none have worked better than this album did.
I buy lots of CDs of a wide range of styles, each in the hope that it will contain one of those songs that can't fail to make a day brighter - this album is full of those songs. Upbeat songs alternate with slower, but all have some element that alert the ears.
Refreshing in its composition, yet still fully of energy despite the lack of percussion. Brilliant album. If the samples tempt you, you'll love the full album.
