Comments:  This album is magical.I started to listen to this album because Jay Kay and Toby Smith from Jamiroquai said in their interviews that this is one of their most favourite albums. Here is what Jay Kay said about this LP:"It doesn't quite get you first time. And a lot of songs are quite similarly paced. It's almost like the same song being subtly changed ten differennt ways. A lot of it, lyrically, is about the break-up of his relationship. There's a track called Anger, which is lyrically really brilliant; and there's a track called Time To Get It Together using, a think, a marimba, and it's just dreamy and lovely. He was a deep man at the time, but I think the charlie was eating him up. It's all about struggling and fighting, and you can feel it. Look (pointing at his forearm) it makes the hairs stand right up." And as for rhodes piano, it sounds so cool on this album! Marvin Gaye also played
keyboards on it. If you like deep and exclusive music and at the same time you are a rhodes piano fan, this album
is for you!!!!
