I've been a fan of The Bamboos since they released their first 7" (Eel Oil) many moons ago &, in my opinion, their releases since then have marked them out as one of the best new funk bands around and I've been eagerly awaiting this release
BUT
if you're a fan of their previous work then this really may not be for you coz it sure aint for me
Gone is the hard, driving funk & flailing hammond of previous albums & in its place are some limp-wristed attempts at Northern & modern soul & (by all accounts) 60's mod and to be honest it all makes for a wishy-washy collection of songs that are, as my wife put it, "Neither here nor there"
Songs such as "Make it Real" seem like pale imitations of JTQ songs from their "In the Hands of The Inevitable" era, whilst the funk/hip hop crossover song, "Can't Help Myself" is poor when held up against the 2 from the last album
For the first 3 songs the hammond is so low in the mix that it might as well not be there whilst the Paul McInnes vocals on "Move On" are in my opinion so weak they wouldn't sound out of place on an X-Factor auditions show.
Its not all bad - "Kings of the Rodeo" is a good & interesting take on the Kings of Leon version whilst the funk of old does kick in on "Funky Buttercup", "One Man Entourage" and "The Side Stepper"
I've also listened to it 3 times to see if its a "grower" and one thing that does come across on repeated listens is that whilst the music itself may not be bad the ordering of the tracks is poor - On the previous album (Rawville) they mixed up the instrumentals, heavy funk with vocals, the rap & the softer funk/soul stuff so you never found yourself getting bored with the same thing track after track.

Like other reviewers this album came as a shock to me. I am a huge Bamboos fan, I have seen them live several times and love the energy and irresistible rhythm of there songs. That was until this washed up, pale imitation of a Bamboos album flopped into my LP player. This is nothing like their previous work, a slow, boring, limp record that I had to suffer through, not enjoy! If I were you I would try to pretend this record doesn't exist and listen to their previous work, it is what I intend to do!

The Bamboos have changed their sound on every release and sadly the reviewers here want them to stay as they were and keep delivering the same sound. I for one am pleased with the changes and can always sit and listen to the previous releases for the more deep funk sounds, while check out the songs on here. The answer is to buy all The Bamboos albums.
