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!
