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!

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.

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.

This band is one of the most underrated bands in the world. They use real instruments and Jay Kay has an amazing voice. These are talents lacking with "musicians" today. This album is amazing, especially when driving with my premium sound system blaring the clear crisp treble and bass. If you respect music as an art, than you will respect Jamiroquai as artists.

Somehow after nearly 20 years of cranking out tunes that subconsciously make you want to dance in your seat, Jay Kay has made yet another album worth listening to on repeat for days at a time. This album and his previous greatest hits compilation "High Times" are on permanent rotation in my car for months at a time.

This album takes you back to the raw music of the first two albums. That innocence always gets lost somewhere along the way with artists but they managed to capture it here. Any control they exhibit on the album seems self imposed rather than producer imposed. They shine through their refined sound due to their experience while leaning on what they do best. This album as with many of their albums is a mix of multiple genres which helps each song have a unique feel. Jamiroquai never disappoints and while this album may not appeal to the fickle fans it will certainly grab anyone who has followed them their entire career.
