5.0 out of 5 stars Funky, and Fun, 10 Jun. 2009
This review is from: Emergency On Planet Earth (Audio CD)
Jamiroquai were very new on the scene back then, and only discovered them when they were in the top 40 with Too Young To Die, a rather political funky piece which really brought up my spirits, and made me want to dance. Of course back then I was 12 :)

This album is still amazing and fresh as it was back then, funky basslines, excellent brass arrangements and violins, and Jay Kay's voice.. I liked his utopian view on things too, and how he just wanted peace on earth - and the whole melange made this feel like a 70s funk album, it's heavenly keys bringing in the main refrain, and their spirit of just going freestyle and jamming for as long as they wanted, as we can see on Revolution 1993.

My favourite track here is When You Gonna Learn - the start is so dramatic and the lyrics are so good. I love every track on here, but that song does have a special place for me.

This is good funky music which reminds us why acid jazz was formed and why it was so well represented by Jamiroquai back then, you really have to hear it to realise what an album this is, and is probably their best album closely followed by Travelling Without Moving, which is a must-have for fans and people who like good music alike.

Get this, it's a bargain!
