electro-funkster unleashes another stick of 'dynamite'!!!!!!!
on September 27, 2005
although this album came out just last week here in America, it had already been released overseas in Europe and just about everywhere else back in the middle of june. being a serious music lover and a big jamiroquai fan myself, i just could not wait until september to hear the funky grooves of 'dynamite', and i went and purchased an import copy for only 10 dollars, and through Amazon! well, after a 4 year wait, we finally get jay kay and his crew back for another round of delicious dance floor grooves and hot , boomin' tracks for your car or stereo. things kick off with the non-familiar sound of "feels just like it should', which actually leads the album off in a great way, just to get you ready for the hot, sultry beats of the title track. things are still going strong with great songs like '7 days in sunny june', 'electric mistress', 'starchild', 'loveblind', all of which can conjure up some great times on anybody's dance floor or anybody's basement party. each of the other tunes on this album are just as good as the ones that i have already praised, so i'll just let you just those tunes for yourself. actually, one thing has been annoying regarding all of recent reviews of 'dynamite': why are some you fans out there so damn negative? it's only been 4 years since jason kay put out an album, and since many of today's releases are complete homogenized fm radio crap, anything put out by jamiroquai can easily be considered one of the best pop/rock/funk albums of the year. the new albums don't have to sound like 'emergency on planet earth', or even 'return of the space cowboy'. hell, my personal favorite is 1999's classic "synkronized", but i do not expect 'dynamite' to be just like that classic, do i? every artists album should stand on their own, just like 'dynamite' should. give it a chance, don't be so quick to judge so damn fast. and with the recent troubles in America, especially a couple of very evil women named Katrina and Rita( no dis to the real women out there), this album could turn out to be the perfect solution to ease everybody's minds down on the gulf coast. oh well, i am only one person. i still believe in you jay. keep the party funkin' on for the south, brother.
