"Positivity"- does what it says on the tin., 29 Aug. 2008
"Positivty" is probably the best Acid-Jazz album ever recorded. It combines smooth, jazzy beats with soul, funk and dance music. Maysa Leak's vocals are truly splendid, and add to the beauty of the album. Generally, the album is brilliant, but there are a few tracks which stick out, namely:
Still a Friend of Mine- This brilliant song features an acapella breakdown which gives the listener the chance to hear Maysa's vocals devoid of all instruments and backing music- an absoulte treat!
Positivity- Possibly my favourite track on the album. It really is a gem, and NEEDS to be listened to if you are feeling down or depressed: honestly, it literally lifts you up!
Deep Water- Is a beautiful Jazz ballad that sets a very romantic scene. I've heard this track played in some of London's snazzy bars, and it is more than appropriate. Maysa's vocals accentuate the beauty of the song.
Thinkin About Tomorrow- This is the groove!! Put the glass of wine down, and boogey to this marvellous tune.
Givin' It Up- Although it is slightly removed in regards to the overall tone of the album, it is nonetheless a great dance track. Great if you're out on the floor!
This album portrays why Incognito are one of the only great acts left in the contemporary music industry. Buy it. You won't be disappointed!
