Exquisite funky sounds!...., 21 Dec 2006
Jamiroquai have always been one of my favourite bands right from the early Acid Jazz days up to the more commercial dance/pop tunes of today. Ok, so it always seems to be about Jay Kay, flash cars and paparazzi bust ups nowadays (or so the media likes to portray), but once upon a time, there was a cool band that was original, talented and wrote wicked songs.
This 'greatest hits' album takes you on a fantastic journey through the lifetime of Jamiroquai, and makes you sit back and realise how incredible the band have been.
The early Acid Jazz days with tracks such as 'Too young to die' have always been my favourites, but the list of singles show how versatile this band have been at adapting their sound in the ever changing, industry of music.
Bands like Jamiroquai and The Brand New Heavies (who also have a new album out), have been around for a while now and are already influencing new, up and coming bands and artists such as 'Chichino', which goes to show that they have definately made a big impact in the music industry over the last 14 years.
We need more music like this in what seems to be an indie-guitar dominated world at the moment. More upbeat, danceable funky songs to strutt our stuff to please!!
