  1. Once J.A.C. is in your player, it may be awhile before you take it out.

    Not just music, but a state of mind. [Jun 2005, p.81]
  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. Under The Radar
    70
    While better than their previous effort, [it] still can't match the heights of their 2000 downtempo classic Suzuki. [#10, p.116]
  5. Q Magazine
    70
    There's... a luxuriant, bubble bath-like quality to proceedings so often lacking in imitators. [Aug 2005, p.134]
  6. Uncut

    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.
