Jamiroquai

After a career lasting an era-defying two decades, 30 million albums sales and over 20 hit singles; a shelf-full of awards, including five MTV gongs, an Ivor Novello and a Grammy to name a few, it’s fair to say that Jay Kay, the charismatic quick stepping Londoner professionally known as Jamiroquai, is one of the UK’s greatest musical exports of the last 20 ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good to be back... 1 Nov 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is a very good return from JK and the band. It's true to say that not every track's a winner but that's equally true of all the previous albums too as far as I'm concerned. What we do have here though are a few really great tracks that fit right along side Jamiroquai's other funky classics. The absolute stand-out on the album for me is the title track - and the deluxe edition is worth getting for the live version of this one alone. White Knuckle Ride is also great fun - reminisent perhaps of Travelling Without Moving- or maybe it's just the video that makes me think of that? Blue Skies is rather lovely too...

The acoustic version of All Good in The Hood is brilliant and I'm torn between that and Hurtin' as my second favourite song on the album.

A couple of tracks (All Good in The Hood, Smoke and Mirrors) remind me of the Scissor Sisters - but then again some of the earlier Jamiroquai also has that sound. Not so keen on the two reggae tracks here (Hey Floyd and Goodbye to My Dancer). Nothing wrong with reggae but I would have prefered something with a heavier, funkier beat. Goodbye to My Dancer is probably the weakest track here. The only one on the album I could really do without.

A very welcome return from probably the coolest man in pop. He can sing too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jamiroquai - Rock Dust Light Star 1 Nov 2010
By E. Ward
Format:Audio CD
After waiting quite a while for some new Jamiroquai material, Rock Dust Light Star is definitely worth the wait! The first track 'White Knuckle Ride' is foot-tappingly irresistible, really setting the scene for some seriously good funk-jazz. It also contrasts really well with the comparatively slower second track 'Blue Skies', and title track 'Rock Dust Light Star'. The tracks are well organised to avoid back-to-back similar music, and the album really benefits from this, as we find with tracks four onwards.

'Hurtin'' has a more rocky feel than some of Jamiroquai's previous material, but it doesn't seem out of place next to his more classic sounds. 'Lifeline' has a wonderful, Bond-esque, stringed background track to it, which makes it a real stand out track for me. As the previous reviewer suggested, 'All Good in the Hood' has a definite Scissor Sisters feel to it, though I think its more what the Scissor Sisters can aspire to sound like rather than Jamiroquai replicating their sound.

This CD feels like a slightly more grown up version of the Jamiroquai we last saw five years ago. Besides the Scissor Sisters, comparisons can be made to Jooles Holland, especially in tracks four, eight and ten, and the slower tempo of 'She's a Fast Persuader' brings yet more variety to our ears. 'Hey Floyd' is a great track, but feels very thrown-in-at-the-last-minute because its nothing like anything I've ever heard Jamiroquai do before, and is the only track that doesn't sit comfortably with its neighbours.

That said, I really enjoyed this CD for the fresh funk-jazz sound that Jamiroquai produces so well, which is so different to anyone else in current music industry.

1.0 out of 5 stars Same name, different band 12 Nov 2010
Format:Audio CD
Back in the 90s Jamiroquai ignited my passion for jazz funk music. Although highly derivative, they had their own sound (largely due to Jay Kay's voice) and managed to churn out a succession of incredible singles as well as some brilliant more self-indulgent album tracks.

As their popularity rose, the sound inevitably became more commercial, and on the Travelling Without Moving album, perhaps they struck the perfect balance. But since then, with the steady departure of original members, the quality of music has rapidly declined (albeit with a brief resurgence on most of Dynamite)

Rock Dust Light Star is a massive disappointment - the best tunes are either just re-hashes of tried and tested disco-funk formulas (White Knuckle Ride), or insipid pop ballads (Blue Skies). The remainder veers from cringeworthy rock (Hurtin') to funk-lite ditties (Lifeline) that would sound more in place on a Will Young album. 2 Completely Different Things is maybe the most natural song on the album, but it's no classic - and Fast Persuader is a woeful attempt at recreating a Travelling Without Moving-style jazz funk workout.

There is no longer the sound of a 'band' but a group of very capable musicians playing a collection of average songs/jams. If this were a new pop band, perhaps I'd enjoy some of the tunes more. But given the quality and style of the back catalogue, I can only listen with real regret that the Jamiroquai I knew and loved have now completely disappeared.

Incognito's latest album serves a reminder that you can still sound fresh and contemporary whilst staying true to the jazz funk genre.
