With all the manufactured rubbish infecting the charts this release form JMQ is one of masters of their craft, a great fusion of rock and funk that is simply superb. If you get the chance to catch them live do so, I promise you that you won't be disappointed. I am off to Rome in July to see them again, they were THAT good in Glasgow April 2011.

This is a very good return from JK and the band. It's true to say that not every track's a winner but that's equally true of all the previous albums too as far as I'm concerned. What we do have here though are a few really great tracks that fit right along side Jamiroquai's other funky classics. The absolute stand-out on the album for me is the title track - and the deluxe edition is worth getting for the live version of this one alone. White Knuckle Ride is also great fun - reminisent perhaps of Travelling Without Moving- or maybe it's just the video that makes me think of that? Blue Skies is rather lovely too...
The acoustic version of All Good in The Hood is brilliant and I'm torn between that and Hurtin' as my second favourite song on the album.
A couple of tracks (All Good in The Hood, Smoke and Mirrors) remind me of the Scissor Sisters - but then again some of the earlier Jamiroquai also has that sound. Not so keen on the two reggae tracks here (Hey Floyd and Goodbye to My Dancer). Nothing wrong with reggae but I would have prefered something with a heavier, funkier beat. Goodbye to My Dancer is probably the weakest track here. The only one on the album I could really do without.
A very welcome return from probably the coolest man in pop. He can sing too!

Great... Jamiroquoi are back!

Great album, a sound and feel that is distinct to Jamiroquoi and never sounds old. It's fun funky and simply cool... keep it up JayKay!
@abaccar - a track isn't missing, the tune you mention is available on the Japanese version of the deluxe edition only

One track missing?

I made the same mistake as I thought a double CD version coming. reading at the other posts I understood that just on CD version is delivered. Nevertheless am I wrong or track 13 "That's not the funk I want" is missing? Play.com shows 19 tracks while the CD just 18.

Despite what some musical publications have said, this album is brilliant and a must for all true fans. It definitely falls under the title of a grower, but once I'd had it blasting in my car for a week I was loving every track. Be warned about the advertised two CD version of the album. It doesn't come with 2 CD's at all. The bonus tracks feature at the end of the regular 12 album tracks on the one disc provided. Because of this, upon delivery, I initially thought I'd received the wrong goods, but hadn't. This said, the bonus tracks are awesome, particularly the remix club versions of some of the slower regular album tracks towards the end of the bonus material. You simply can't go wrong for little more than a tenner if you like the band's sound.

Thank god Jay and the guys have come back yet again with their own unique sound that is far more sexy, interesting and energetic than the rubbish out there at the moment!
We dont need all these fabricated, moulded to make money boy bands we need more quality, talented individual bands like this!

A mixture of funk and soul, creative lyrics and great vocals. Well worth listening to and different to anything out there in the charts.
