Editorial Reviews

2010 release, the seventh album from British Jazz Funk pioneers Jamiroquai. Fronted by the charismatic Jay Kay, this is the band's first album in five years, following Dynamite with the kind of catchiness that made Jamiroquai a household name. Recorded between Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, and Thailand, Rock Dust Light Star features the single 'Blue Skies', a Take That-esque uplifting pop song - a departure from tracks such as 'Space Cowboy'. This record shows the group's talent remains as strong in 2010 as it was in 1994.

The top "comment" featured on this page is a scathing review of this latest work by Jamiroquai. Of course that reviewer's opinion is as every bit as valid as mine and that's what makes music so great. All I can say is that my official review is a virtual reverse mirror image of that persons' opinion. This album is incredible and needs to drop in the United States immediately. It's among the band's finest work period. Just listen. Nothing more needs to be said except ... Jamiroquai sounds better than ever!

While for me, Jamiroquai will never be able to surpass their first three albums without Stuart Zender--their original bass player--in the mix (which for me was half the thrill of listening to the band), this is one of the finest releases since Traveling Without Moving. It's a shame that it hasn't been released in the states, but at least Amazon makes it easy for us Yankees to acquire.

It seems to be in vogue to hate on Jamiroquai, which I can understand to a certain degree:

First off, it's a white--not to mention British--band doing music clearly inspired in styles that originated in black culture. It's always been a music industry tradition to promote bands like this with much more financial backing and energy than is often devoted to the black creators of the sound. However, at this point Jamiroquai seems to have eschewed the industry support they used to have in favor of artistic independence, which equals minimal support on the business end, effectively returning them to underground status. I, for example, try to keep my ear to the ground for all creative funky music being released, and I only came across this album because I've been checking Amazon every six months for one of their releases.

Second, I've heard several extremely talented and dynamic vocalists complain that Jay Kay is something of a one-trick pony in his vocal approach. I can see how some find this getting old, but this album moves in slightly different musical directions, which in some ways makes up for the consistency of his vocal timbre. On top of that, the one sound he does have is a heck of a lot more pleasant to hear than the majority of voices out there, so you won't find me complaining about that.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Jamiroquai's career for the past twenty years has been a long and curious one. First starting out as offering one of the few funk/soul based musically genuinely based in live instrumental productions with heavy songcraft and arrangements,the band gradually shed members at the end of it's first decade and relied more on heavy production and dancibility. Their previous studio set Dynamite was not 100% up to their standards. And a compilation released not long after only featured two new songs. Seemed Jamiroquai was over. Newer bands/soloists had arrived to fill the void they left. Taking several years between the last few album releases have given them a chance to figure out what kind of music they can deal best with. And that it might just be possible to extend on their peak period without looking embarrassing. Now Jay Kay has reuped with a new Jamiroquai band that's quite a bit larger and self contained than the original including bassist Paul Turner,guitarist Rob Harris,keyboardist Matt Johnson and original member Derrick McKensie on drums along with a horn section and backround singers.

On this album Jamiroquai have a sound that doesn't have much to do with the sound of their earlier recordings. And certainly not the previous two. While Jay's voicals,whether due to his hard living past or overeaching vocally over time,is continuing to lose the range and volume it once had the material here is unique and diverse. Sure the digeredoo sound is of course long gone. What is here is a sound that,overall blends Jamiroquai's funkier and more soulful influences with stronger elements of singer-songwriter and pop/rock.

I have to preface my review by saying that I have been listening to Jamiroquai for many years. This band is, without a doubt, my favorite. I literally counted the days for this album to come out and was astounded as how well rounded and ambitious it is. So many different sounds and feelings contained within this album. Seasoned listeners will be disappointed if they expect a `Dynamite' or `Funk Odyssey' sound. However, if you keep your mind open and realize that this is not about keeping the same sound, it is about Jay Kay and Jamiroquai showing that they are so much more than what we have heard, you will adore it.....

Rock Dust Light Star -The title track was one that was released early on You Tube by a few eager fans holding camera phones. I was so very excited to hear this on the album however; this is actually one of my least favorite songs. There is some sloppy guitar work in this one and the background singers seem to overpower Jay Kay on too many occasions. I do like the track love how toward the end Jay Kay lets go a bit but again, the background singers seem to overpower him too much and his velvet voice gets lost too often in the noise.

White Knuckle Ride-I really enjoy this song, I do wish that it had not been released as the first single however, I understand why it was. This is probably the most `main stream' song on the album, consistent beats, and a very VERY catchy chorus. Same backup singers on this one, but they take a back seat to Jay Kay. This one is destined to be remixed (and remixed...and remixed....and remixed).

Smoke and Mirrors-I was not a huge fan of this one when I first heard it, I still don't think that it comes close to what the band is capable of.
