    After the lead single its pretty much business as usual. I thought they may try pull out all the stops before their greatest hits is released. We all knew about the album deal with Sony, and Jamiroquai didnt quite take on the world I once hoped they would. The never really progressed beyond a point they hit many years ago.

  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.

    [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]
