Well after 'Silent Introduction' it was difficult to see how Moodymann, or Kenny Dixon Jnr. to his friends, could better it. But he has.
Keeping his penchant for deep house/disco he expands on this album to a much deeper level than previous works.
'Wednesday Night People' is typical Moodymann, deep, deep house with a disco tinge. 'Set Up' works with a harsher bassline but Kenny's soothing background atmospherics wash away any fear of it being a techno track.
'Don't you want my love' was released as a single earlier this year and it proves just how good Moodymann is as it will get your body moving. 'Thief that stole my sad days' starts off like a gospel song, a good one at that, and only halfway through does the kickdrum and bassline kick in to much effect.
'Tribute' is really disco house at its most visible but Moodymann's disco tracks don't seem to be affected by time as most others are.
Get this album for a real soulful treat.

I am almost speechless. After the two previous albums I never thought it could get any better, but this album is 'just taking the P***. It's Brilliant ! And it is also a testament to Kenny Dixon jnr's evolution into one of the most intelligent and innovative producers of his genre, if not of our time. With his unmistkeable signiture intact, Moodyman enters the Millenium with yet another yardstick for all who follow him. MIND BENDINGLY GOOD. My adice to anyone reading these reviews is: Just buy this album now, and prepare you're wallet to shell out any amount of money necessary to obtain every God Damn release you can find.

This,the second album for Peacefrog by the enigmatic and publicity-shy Detroit producer Moodymann,is the album by which all other deep house,tech-house,soulful dance records should be judged.Innovative but respectful of its roots and traditions, emotional yet intelligent,smoothly melodic but never bland -this is the cutting edge of real black electronic soul.If you thought mellow and disturbing could not co-exist on the same record try this out.Highlights include the delightful "Dont you want my love",the rolling, jazzy "Tribute" and the gospel-drenched but nicely bizarre "Thief that stole my days".Forget all the deep house =dad house nonsense and discover the strange but intriguing world of Moodymann.
