Amazon.com

Soulive are proof that jazz remains a living organism that continually evolves from its past to make music for the present. Now a quartet with their addition of a saxophonist, Soulive brew a seamless funky concoction of '60s jazz-organ grooves, '70s funk, '90s acid-jazz, and fresh hip-hop that defies classification. The basic vibe of the music mirrors the great organ-guitar-sax era of the '60s, and these twentysomething musicians capture the nightclub feel of that time on "Tuesday Night's Squad" and the stirring ballad "Alkime." Dance-music fans will dig tracks that feature hip-hoppers Black Thought (from the Roots) and Talib Kweli. And for those who need their '70s groove on, they quote Earth Wind & Fire directly on "Flurries" and pay homage to the Brecker Brothers' highly syncopated style on "Whatever It Is." Dave Matthews, who Soulive opened for on a long tour of sold-out rock venues, returns the favor here on "Joyful Girl," but he is by far the least interesting aspect of this 13-song set. As their album title suggests, in jazz, Soulive is what's next. --Mark Ruffin

I didn't think it was possible to jump this far ahead of their oustanding Blue Note debut, Doin' Something...God Damn. One great track after the next. These cats can do it all - organ jazz, hip-hop, soul, groove, funk - but they do it with a sound all their own. 'Next' evolves their style to a new level, thanks in part to the addition of the sublime Sam Kininger to the group on sax. Songwriting is better than ever; incredible grooves, pockets, breaks and solos are all over this record. Favorites include "nay-nay," "kalen" and "clap!" (featuring Black Thought of The Roots), but every track burns. Hip-hop, jazz, and jam band fans will instantly love it, but this is truly a great record that should make waves in all music circles.

Ever since I saw these guys live in a little and very personal club, I loved 'em. I immediatly went out and got "Turn it Out" and wasn't dissapointed (as a matter of fact I was extatic). When "Doin Somthin" came out I was waiting at the store to buy it (well, not really... but you know how it feels). See my review of that album for more. So naturally when "Next" came out I was very excited. I was about to buy it when I though, "Hmm, maybe I should listen to it first." I'm quite glad I did. Their sound has become increasingly overproduced and smooth and at this point it feels more like backgrounds or a series of grooves (which weren't terribly rich in sound) thrown together. The amazing guitar playing of Eric Krasno has been moved to the background (of the backgrounds)and I often had to remind myself that he was even there. Sam Kininger's sax lines are often verry smooth and not of that funky-jazzy ellement so essential to the original Soulive sound. While some musicians, such as Miles, can pull off drastic stylistic changes seamlessly and still produce incredible records, I wouldn't say Soulive fits in that group.

Not sure where these guys are headed, but I'm heading in the opposite direction. My sentiments echo what many have already said: "Overproduced", "smooth", etc. "Next" was such a disappointment considering how much I liked "Doin' Something". I wonder who's really behind this, Soulive or Bluenote (or both). And before everyone gets all crazy, I'm all for a band trying new things, growing musically, yada, blah, whatever, but this is such a departure from their previous sound that I just can't sponsor it.
Despite my negative review, I do applaud the band for trying to reach out to a wider audience. I just wish they hadn't compromised their sound as much as they did.

I couldn't wait until their next album came out. I thought it was gonna be some stuff that nobody ever heard. I was dead wrong. The very first Soulive album is their best album to date. On Next, the addition of more instruments takes away from the sound that we thought was Soulive. The first album is like this: Organ, Drums, Guitar- Go!. Next is like this: Organ, Keyboards (Ugh), Drums (always pocket), Guitar (same stuff), and saxophone. Why? Soulive does not need a saxophone player. You can barely hear the organ over the sax, and that is not what we expect when we listen to Soulive. Also, most of the songs are so simple and repetitive, my garage band could have done this album 5 years ago. No doubt there are some good songs on this album, but they just do not belong on this album. Get It? For example, the hip-hop influenced "I Don't Know" and "Bridge to Bama" are definitely hot, and can make you groove on the dance floor. But this is Soulive right? The Organ, Drum, Guitar trio. These hip hop songs don't fit, and this is coming from a hip hop fan. There are no real ripping Hammond solos, and there is too much breaking away from the Hammond as well. What is with these keyboards Neal? It's just not cool man. You're gonna be sounding just like everybody else. Don't buy into the propoganda. Maybe Soulive is trying not to be repetitious by playing organ, drums, and guitar all the time, but in these times of copycat artists and extreme sameness, they are not repetitious at all. Even after all this criticism, they are still Soulive and them boys got ridiculous talent. They just need to learn how to make every album the best album that it can be.
-Peace-

This is the soundtrack for a day of browsing through chain bookstores.I was very dissapointed. Krasno is an afterthought in this soulless, studio born album.
Im waiting for the REAL follow up to Doin Something.

the addition of vocal talent, although still resulting in some chill tracks, really takes away from soulive's musical talent. at least half of the album seems to be mainly comprised of looped, downbeat samples creating, in effect, melodies that resemble high school "slow dance" songs rather than the band's prior jazzy urban tunes. the remainder of the album holds true to the band's earlier days, but while noticably soulive, ends up coming across more as background music you'd hear on the weather channel. not their best work...

If you are someone who listens to nothing but hip-hop music, you will probably think you are hearing "jazz" when you rip this. That's what scares me - that and all of the other things that Blue Note seems to be willing to do to water down their brand. To someone who listens to a lot of jazz (actual jazz) and blues and rock/pop/soul and classical and world music, like me, this stuff will sound like slick formulaic clap-track party music that leaves no back-beat behind, with very little improvisational interest, and absolutely no compositional interest. I wonder how the band can even keep these tunes straight in their own heads when they're trying to play them live, but then I do have to remind myself that Eskimos are reported to use over 50 different words for "blubber" and more than twice that number for "snow". The drummer can probably keep them straight because he pretty much does the same thing on every song with no variation and without *ever* missing the 2 and 4 on that overly-crisp snare. Two stars for "Next" because it does make you want to get up and shake your booty if you're really drunk first. Otherwise, and unfortunately for me, this music is pretty much Souless.
