Biography

Jamiroquai

After a career lasting an era-defying two decades, 30 million albums sales and over 20 hit singles; a shelf-full of awards, including five MTV gongs, an Ivor Novello and a Grammy to name a few, it’s fair to say that Jay Kay, the charismatic quick stepping Londoner professionally known as Jamiroquai, is one of the UK’s greatest musical exports of the last 20 ...

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Jason Kay melds his longtime '70s fixations with '80s style synths on Dynamite, Jamiroquai’s first record since 2001's A Funk Odyssey. It's been a long time since the acid jazz/funk hit "Virtual Insanity" (1996's Traveling Without Moving, to be exact), and even though the band never became the huge hit machine they seemed destined to become, they've continued to put out solid work. Odyssey and 1999's Synkronized showed off Kay's dexterity with this material, mining urban dance grooves from a goldmine of Motown, Stevie Wonder and far-ranging disco and soul. Dynamite keeps going, constructing an exuberant club vibe out of R&B styles, but also borderline electro ("Electric Mistress"), jumpy Squeeze-style pop ("Black Devil Car") and soulful, smooth nostalgia ("Seven Days In Sunny June"). A would-be guilty pleasure, only without the guilt, Kay's musical obsessions combine with his burgeoning talent on Dynamite to create another winner. --Matthew Cooke

5.0 out of 5 stars DYNAMITE - Titled Correctly! September 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
A Jamiroquai fan since the get-go, this album is seriously solid from top to bottom. Every album thus far has had at least 1-2 throwaway-skipover tracks, except A Funk Odyssey which contained many throwaways. Dynamite seems to suffer from this condition less and maybe not at all.

Through the first week of listens, the title track Dynamite has been played over and over in my brain along with Seven Days In Sunny June, Starchild, and Talullah. Those were my favorite four tracks to start.

With more listens this week, Black Devil Car has emerged and risen as well as Hot Tequila Brown, Feels Like It Should and Electric Mistress. The others not mentioned are all still solid really.

And I will whole-heartedly disagree with Mistermaxx on his 1 star review here and calling out the fact Jamiroquai has been getting by without "writing a song." You could maybe say that on Funk Odyssey, but this one is a whole different flavor. The lyrics are much better and the grooves are back to what older fans have come to expect. There is some dynamite material in here. Well worth the time and money spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Jamiroquai Album ! January 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Ok, let's face it: Jamiroquai's strength have never been his lyrics, and this album is no exception. They are flat, ridiculous and pure non - sense. But were we really expecting a literary diamond? NO !! We just want more of the DELICIOUS FUNKINESS, SUPERB voices and chorals, FANTASTIC basses and WILD arrangements. And that is EXACTLY what you get ! ...and if you have a CD or DVD player that will play it, buy the Dual Disc version to get better sound quality (you won't regret spending the extra dollars).

1.- Feels Just Like it Should is the first single of this album. A strange pick, for I think it's the weakest track. It's choppy, boring, so non-Jamoriquai.

2.- Dynamite is one of the strongest tracks in the album. Full of incredible effects, superb chorals, and an incredible arrangement. So near to your typical Jamiroquai song.

3.- Seven Days in Sunny June is THE BEST track in the disc. A ballad of some sort, this incredible song reminds us of the style introduced in the album A Funk Odyssey in the track Corner of the Earth. So full of great guitar playing and yet funky and fun.

4.-Electric Mistress is strange indeed, with some weird bass lines...yet it works ! It's simple but addictive.

5.- Starchild is a delicious slow groove. Exactly the funkiness you expect in a disc like this. It will not dissapoint you.

6.- Love Blind reminds me of most pop music out there mixed with the characteristic bass lines of Jamiroquai, yet after so many times hearing it, you get used to it and like it. Its a very strange mixture.

7.- Tallulah is just jazzy lounge music. Ear pleasing, no more.

8.- (Don't) Give Hate a Chance competes with Seven Days in Sunny June as the best track. It's funky, dance, groovy, smooth.

3.0 out of 5 stars More Disco Than Acid June 21, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This review will be part CD review and part concert review as i've just seen them last night in Budapest at their first gig of the summer.

The CD resembles a lot to 'A Funk Odyssey' which wouldn't necessarily be bad news, but the tracks are - in my opinion - less catchy and the jazzy moments have completely disappeared. I miss the horns of the first 3 albums and while the songs themselves are quality, i just couldn't find those little sounds, tone settings, groovy bass lines or smooth synth chords that made the other albums stand out. My favourite track is 'Seven days in Sunny June' which has some excellent moments, but overall, there aren't really any standout songs.

As for the concert yesterday, it was a smash with good sound settings and great atmosphere. Surprisingly, they played a lot from the earlier albums (without horns). Those of You who are lucky to have Jamiroquai pay a visit should expect the following (based on last night's set):Canned Heat, Space Cowboy, Cosmic Girl, Revolution, Little L., Mr. Moon, Blow My Mind (instr.), Too Young to Die, Emergency on Planet Earth, Feels Like It Should, Dynamite, Black Devil Car, Seven Days in Sunny June, Deeper Underground.

The songs from the new album sound better live than on the disc, which makes it even more worthwile to buy them tickets.

5.0 out of 5 stars A welcome return to form June 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album is as good as Travelling Without Moving. Perhaps better. The funky grooves are definitely back. There are some strong tracks ...Starchild, World That He Wants, Seven Days, Give Hate A Chance...virtually every one is great. Usually I find one stinker I really can't stand but everything on Dynamite oozes class and good songwriting. The import and UK release has the additional track Time Won't Wait which is worth the extra cash alone. Why they decided to leave it off the US and European release baffles me as its a fantastic piece. I have all the Jamiroquai albums and this has turned into one of my favourite after spinning it for just 2 weeks. Jay Kay may be the bad lad the music industry loves to hate but they can't deny the boy has talent. The album could do with a good jazzy instrumental (a la Roy Ayers) but that's just nitpicking. Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Album title speaks for itself September 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Being a HUGE Jamiroquai fan for years now, and having almost encyclopedic knowledge of all their 5 previous albums, I must say that Dynamite ranks way, way up there if not better than the rest. Some reviews have said that this album follows right along with the style of A Funk Odyssey, but honestly, Dynamite is in a league all its own in some ways. True, there are a few songs on the album like the title track Dynamite, (Don't) Give Hate a Chance, and Electric Mistress that have that kind of "dance club" vibe to them, but when you explore the whole album, it soon becomes evident that the style of music is as diverse as any previous album ever was. there is the aforementioned "club" style, along with some more gritty type songs like Feels Just Like It Should and Black Devil Car, and even melodic in Talullah. Seven Days in Sunny June and Hot Tequila Brown are feel good summertime songs that are tough to get out of your head, and Starchild & Time Won't Wait make it hard not to scramble to learn the lyrics so you can sing along at the top of your lungs. There is even a political opinion expressed as World That He Wants is obviously about how our President is not exactly Jay's favorite person (as is also made abuntantly clear in the CD booklet where he concludes his thank yous with a special message for ol' W) But I digress......

If you are a longtime hardcore jamiroquai fan, you should love this album, and I highly, highly recommend it, and if you are a fan of well written, jazz/funk/dance you should definitely enjoy this album as well.

ENJOY!!!!!
