I too have been an Incognito fan for many years, and have all their previous 12 albums...all great recordings!..but this has to be the best so far!..Totally incognito..jazzy, uplifting, soulful,melodic..its all on this album, which will be the sound of summer 2008. Buy this album, its sheer class, Bluey and the gang at their best...its incognito..enough said!!!!

Where to start? What an album!!!! There isn't a bad track on it, it has everything, from danceable grooves (in bucket loads) to soulful melodies. The music writing and arrangement is absolute quality from start to finish and this album has to be Incognito's best to date (and with 12 studio albums before it, that is saying something!) BUY THIS ALBUM!! (Trust me, you will not be disappointed!!)

After "Bees And Things And Flowers," I was so looking forward to "Tales" (and maybe that was the problem)that I almost ripped the cd out of the posties hands.

But after a couple of listens I was ready to consign it to the "looks like they are on the downslope" section of my cd collection.The more laid back acoustic groove of what I thought was merely a stop gap release in "Bees....." remained and I was left thinking, where had they left their funkiness?

HOWEVER......I am happy to report I was very very wrong. Having stuck with it "Tales..." is actually a very mature collection of songs from a band who are at the top of their playing/singing abilities. The first 7 tracks demonstrate what the album is all about - the songs aren't as immediate as, say Eleven or Positivity, but "N.O.T" and "I've Been Waiting" are real head bobbing growers. Tony Momrelle appears to have been posessed by the spirit of Stevie Wonder on "When The Sun Comes Down" but Imaani and Joy Rose are not overshadowed either - especially on "Silence Of My Mind" and the hauntingly beautiful "It May Rain Sometime". In fact it's Maysa's voice that sounds as if it's lost some power compared to earlier releases.

The big plus point as well is that the songs really work live - as an attendee at the July Concorde 2 Brighton gig I can testify that "N.O.T" will be a favourite for years to come.

But don't form an opinion until you've played it at least 10 times - sometimes the best things in life are worth waiting for!

Once again Incognito do not fail to disapoint . . . its just a shame they don't get the recogntion they deserve. Great tunes and beautiful melodies from the briliant vocal of Tony Momrelle, Imaani & Joy Rose . . . can't wait to see them again live on their 30th Anniversary concert!

One of these days, I'm half-expecting Incognito to make an album that doesn't immediately find it's way into my CD player and stay there for several weeks. This is definitely NOT that album.

If you liked "Who Needs Love", "Adventures in Black Sunshine" or "Eleven", you're going to love "Tales From The Beach". All the classic Incognito elements are there: infectious grooves, razor-sharp horns, soulful vocals.... and a whole set of great new songs from Bluey and his various writing partners.

One notable return to the writing team is multi-instrumentalist Richard Bull, who co-wrote many of the best-known and best-loved tracks from early albums such as "Positivity" and "Tribes, Vibes + Scribes".

My personal favourite from this album is "Love, Joy, Understanding". Other stand-out tracks include "Freedom To Love", "N.O.T." and "Never Look Back".

As other reviewers have already commented, buy this album - you won't be disappointed!

I really like this album. It's the first Incognito CD I bought and I was impressed by the high quality of the musicians playing in the band and - above all - the arrangements.

The vocals are very soulful, and i like the way the band use a range of lead singers, it provides variety and enables them to incorporate an impressive array of styles.

There are a couple of tracks that I think are not quite as strong as the average, but on the whole this is very strong song-writing, funky soulful playing and singing and polished instrumental performances.

A brilliant album. An underated group that are of an overated standard, Incognito never fail to bring you the blissfull sound of soul/jazz/funk/house/ with a latin flavoured beat. Bluey hits number one each time, and the quality of the featured vocalists are of the highest standard. I have all their albums to date and each time it justs better. Totally recommend this album and their previous ones if your considering a purchase.
Music that brings peace on a sunset beach to your imagination. Sit back, close your eyes, top up the Sangria and listen....

i have been an incognito fan since the very beginning. this is without a shadow of a doubt the best album that bluey has produced to date. every track will take you in a new direction of thought, and you will listen from start to finish without skipping a track
