Lazy reviewing will compare this album to Outkasts output but that is not really fair on either band! Outkast are a hip-hop group with one member who wanted to make more soulful/funky stuff later on in their career. Plantlife are a straight up funk band. It's more Parliament than James Brown, with electronics aplenty (other reviews, including those on the CD case use the word 'techno'-it doesn't sound anything like techno! It just has some keyboards...) At times it sounds like 90's era 'Acid Jazz' a la Jamiroquai, but with a vocalist reminiscent of Lenny Kravitz and a more 21st century sound.
As for the album itself, it is very consistent, it doesn't have that 'a few good singles and a lot of filler' sound that a lot of albums have. It certainly isn't a pop album, and if you like one track you will like them all but for some it might take a few listens through before they get their head around it (like my girlfriend, who wasn't sure at first but now loves it. CD is in her car, not mine!)
Essentially, if you don't own any content by the bands I have mentioned above, it might be worth doing some research first, but if you do really love your music, and like the funky stuff, you'd be hard pushed to find a contemporary band doing this kind of thing as well as Plantlife do. Plus, more people should be supporting bands like this and not pop stars making vaguely 'funky' pop music.
