Jamiroquai has been around for a long time! And I was surprised by how many of the songs were semi-popular. They've been consistently good for quite awhile, which is hard for a group to do.
You could argue that buying the individual albums is better, but that gets expensive. You could also argue that some of their best songs are missing (Mr. Moon, one of my favorites, is missing). But for a compilation, this is about as good as it gets.
Plus, the two new songs on here, at the end, fit in perfectly. They are just as good and funky as the others. Jamiroquai (Jay Kay) write great catchy songs with catchy choruses. Somehow they never get cheesey though.
I don't like giving 5-star reviews normally, but this one warrants one. The entire album is consistently enjoyable and danceable. This is top-notch funky white-boy disco soul! Highly recommended.
Through the years, Jamiroquai have proven themselves as a band capable of longevity by evolving in a very fluid fashion. Always an outfit with a intensely distinctive sound, they have drifted unapologetically between various production styles and modes of songwriting all while being respectful of the essence that garnered them a strong following in the first place. What this best of really highlights is a band that started out with a groovy pimp strut and only continues to gain confidence in their walk over the years.
Face it, if you don't dig what they're about, I'm not going to change your mind. As with any artist, there are points of critique that could be lobbied but the idea is that any one of the songs off this album, when juxtaposed well with a similar song by a soul, funk or disco contemporary, is going to hold its own: this is a great compliment to your party mix on shuffle in other words. "High Times" definitely nails the focus of what Jamiroquai does - bouncy, funky, fun music that sounds genuinely inspired. It's a great springboard to the rest of their collection as well: if you happen to find yourself drawn to one era or another via a song on this album, you are going to know exactly where to start.Read more ›
If you like the sound of a sort of combo "jazz-rock" Cd then this is the one for you. JAMIROQUAI is a great band. It`s hard to truly define their sound, but whatever it is ,... it's GREAT!
As I said before, this band is a combo jazz-rock with a bit of alternative thrown in. The lead singer is AMAZING! The other band players are absolutely amazing too.
If you get this Cd, you wont be able to stop your feet from twitching to their beat. FUN!!!!!!
PS: if you have seen NAPOLEAN DYNAMITE then you will recognize track # 11!!---LOVE IT, and so will you!
