    Not just music, but a state of mind. [Jun 2005, p.81]
  2. Once J.A.C. is in your player, it may be awhile before you take it out.
  3. The best part is that nothing feels forced or overtly formulated; every bout of vocal scatting, jazzy electric guitar coloring and organ chord arrangement seems to be the product of gradual mixing sessions.
  4. There's... a luxuriant, bubble bath-like quality to proceedings so often lacking in imitators. [Aug 2005, p.134]
  5. J.A.C. is ultimately a simple record covering well-worn territory that is no less engaging for its familiarity.
  6. 70
    Tosca is now... a band proper as well as a studio concern, and the change shows. [Jul 2005, p.106]
  7. While it is true that there are precious few surprises on J.A.C., there is also a satisfying professionalism that leaves the listener with a refreshing cosmopolitan buzz.
