4.0 out of 5 stars The Return Of The Space Cowboy, 21 Jun 2005
This review is from: Dynamite (Audio CD)
Not since Travelling Without Moving has a Jamiroquai record sounded so fresh, fluid and varied. The sound has evolved substantially compared to 2001's rather pop orientated Funk Odyssey; progressing in sound and style to a level which sounds up to date but retains that trademark funky attitude we've all grown to love over the past decade.
Lyrically the songs have matured; some emotionally deep, some relaxed and balanced, the more upbeat numbers well fused together ('Starchild' being a certain classic) and in the case of 'World That He Wants' politically inspiring. Instrumentally the songs are rich and varied, layered with soul, funk, jazz, electro and even reggae: 'Black Devil Car' an adrenaline pumped track perfect for the car, while 'Seven Days In Sunny June' (my personal favourite) suited beautifully to a chilled out summers afternoon.
My only criticism of the album is that some tracks feel over produced, in particular with 'Electric Mistress' and 'Dynamite', mixing JK's voice with synthesisers and backing singers; personally something completely unnecessary as he has such a beautiful singing voice.
But this really is the only criticism of the album, and with further listening I'm sure they'll grow on me. Other than that the album truly is faultless and is destined to be a hit, to be played in my car for a very long time! Bring on the September tour!!
