    Such a funky, sexy album. Excellent musicianship--oh my, the bass! The voice! The woodwinds! Could listen to it all day. Especially love "Love Blind," "Tallulah," "Star Child," and "Feels Just Like it Should."

    I have a two CD album of Jamiroquai. This singer is the most visible and known ambassador of the music he makes. Very like the Beatles, but this is not pop music. His music is simple, and he appreciates the same, and repeats the lyrics, and the tune, very visibly at the lines, which would be a chorus in a singing group.

  1. Similar to 2001's dazzlingly slick Funk Odyssey, Dynamite reveals Kay as a dance floor eclectic, inclined to grab as much from Chic and Parliament as Kajagoogoo, The Police and Terry Callier.
  2. "Dynamite" may be his most consistent long player yet, which is not to say there aren't some lows.
  3. [Jay Kay's] blue-eyed disco funk has definitely had its highlights, but they're pretty hard to find here. [23 Sep 2005, p.90]
