  • Summary: The son of Afobeat legend Fela Kuti releases his latest album which features more piano and trumpet.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 6 out of 10
  2. Negative: 0 out of 10
  1. Kuti studied piano and revisited the trumpet, his original instrument, resulting in a more textured and jazz-influenced approach this time out.
  2. He's come into his own carrying on the tradition of Afro-beat, but putting his own beautiful signature on it as its original heir.

    Finger-pointing music has rarely been as much fun. [Nov 2008, p.116]
  4. The album lacks the gut-punch intensity of brother Seun Kuti's recent debut, and the lyrics occasionally border on the trite, but Femi certainly lives up to the family name.
  5. Femi's new album suffers in comparison to Seun's – while the tracks are fairly enjoyable, Femi's lyrics are the usual worthy but clunking stuff.
  6. Like his dad, he's more of a declaimer than a singer, but that's still plenty good enough to get his politicised sloganeering across. [Dec 2008, p.130]
  7. 60
    This is different (from his last studio album) again, the rhythms of Afrobeat now cleved to an ambitious jazziness. [Dec 2008, p.100]
