In my opinion, this album is easily the best since the fabulous Come Find Yourself, and the musical equivalent of a selection box with all your favourite centres and not a dud to be seen.
New York's finest are back on the block, and on form, and with the new addition of Frank The Rhythm Man as Mackie's replacement, the sound is fresh and funky. Opening with the excellent and underrated single 'Too Hot' and moving effortlessly into the equally upbeat 'Stray Bullet', this album puts a smile on your face from start to finish.
Standout tracks for me include the bouncy 'Lost It All', the insanely catchy 'You Got A Problem', the hiphop infused 'Take Me Back', the bass-driven 'What Had Happened' and the surprising 'Steak Knife'. There are some gentler tracks to balance the more upbeat ones, such as the pretty 'Friday Night' and the touching 'Beautiful' and 'You Just Can't Have It All'.
All in all, a truly entertaining album all the way through. Fans will love it, and those who aren't yet soon will be after hearing this! Go buy it now!
